Where,
Cy - Carry flag

  In data flag category OF (Overflow) flag is there, rests of the flags are same as 8085 flags.

  • OF– Overflow Flag– Used in signed numbers, when the result of signed number is too large, causing MSB to overlfow into the sign bit, this flag is set.
  •  DF – Direction Flag – Used to control the direction (increment/decrement) of the string operation.
