The most important part of programming is its decision making capability. Which is normally provided by statements like if then else in high level programming. In assembly language conditional jump instructions provides the decision making capabilities .
Conditional jumps are based on the status of various flags of 8085 microprocessor 8085microprocessor has five flags( sing, Zero , Auxiliary Cary , Parity and Carry). Out of which auxiliary carry flag is used internally. Remaining four flags are used by the conditional jump instructions. Their are two jump instruction for each flag.
Note : Conditional jump instruction do not modify any flag but they function according to one of the flag which is set reset by some previously executed instruction.
