Types of conditional jumps - 8086
Explain the two types of conditional jumps.
- The two types of unconditional jumps are intersegment and intrasegment jumps.
- In the case of intrasegment jumps as the name suggest is a special type of jump in which the address to which the jump is to be performed is present / lies in the same code segment from where the jump is performed from. In order to perform this jump changes just need to be made in the Instruction pointer.
- In the case of intersegment jumps the jump takes place from one segment to another. In order to be able to make these kinds of jumps the changes need to be made in both the code segment and the instruction pointer.
