Ive just started programming in Assembly and im having a little trouble with the language itself. I wanted to make a program that takes two positive integers and adds them together, and outputs a message if theres a carry over, but i have no idea how to go about it. Ive made a assembly program thats adds together before, but i dont know how to do the rest. Any help would be appreciated.

Heres my previous program

ORG 0 ; 
MOV R1,R0;
MOV R2,R0;
ADD R2,R1;
MOV R0,R2;

Any help would be really appreciated, i just am trying to learn =].

Do you want us to guess which processor and host OS you're using?

Well tbh it made sound nooby, but ive been using a emulator and just Windows XP Professional.

The emulator that i am using is called Emu8086

Well the 'problem' is that the code you posted doesn't look at all like x86 assembler.

I found something called BEP/16, but is that relevant?

Yes im sorry, that is relevant, if you could help me i would really appreciate it.

> and outputs a message if theres a carry over
So you do the add, look at some flags, make a decision.

There will be a "carry over" if the result can't fit into a 32 bit integer, presumably, which will cause the carry flag to be set. Then you just need to check the carry flag, which will be 1 if there was a carry, 0 otherwise
