Statement:Find the largest number in a block of data. The length of the block is in memory location 2200H and the block itself starts from memory location 2201H.

Store the maximum number in memory location 2300H. Assume that the numbers in the block are all 8 bit unsigned binary numbers

Store the maximum number in memory location 2300H. Assume that the numbers in the block are all 8 bit unsigned binary numbers

Sample problem

(2200H) = 04

(2201H) = 34H

(2202H) = A9H

(2203H) = 78H

(2204H) =56H

Result = (2202H) = A9H

Source program

LDA 2200H

MOV C, A : Initialize counter

XRA A : Maximum = Minimum possible value = 0

LXI H, 2201H : Initialize pointer

BACK: CMP M : Is number> maximum

JNC SKIP : Yes, replace maximum

MOV A, M

SKIP: INX H

DCR C

JNZ BACK

STA 2300H : Store maximum number

HLT : Terminate program execution

VERY ENCOURAGING....
