The multiplication subroutine multiplies two 8-bit numbers to produce a 16-bit result. The division subroutine divides one 8-bit number by another to produce an 8-bit result. Both subroutines are written to use variable instruction cycle times based on the starting numbers used.

For division, and for fastest multiplication, the number stored in the Num2 variable must be larger than the number stored in Num1. The subroutine includes a sort routine to arrange the numbers in this way.

;MULTDIV8.INC V2.01 Last modified on December 19, 2001 ;Description ; This subroutine library file contains three subroutines: NumSort, to ; sort the two eight-bit numbers in Num1 and Num2 so that Num2 is the ; larger one; Mult8x8, to multiply the two eight-bit numbers in Num1 ; and Num2 into a 16-bit result stored in HighByte and LowByte; and ; Div8x8, to divie the eight-bit number in Num2 by another in Num1 to ; produce an eight-bit result stored in Quotient. Both the division ; and multiplication algorithms are variable cycle length and require ; that the smaller number is stored in Num1 and the larger number in ; Num2. ;Requirements ; A number of registers are required to hold the starting numbers, ; intermediate results and answers. Both the multiplication and ; division subroutines utitlize the same resgister naming for more ; efficient code generation.
