Length of PSW[edit]

The statement The program status word (PSW) is, typically, 32 bits in length. may be true for 16-bit processors but it is incorrect for 32-bit and 64-bit processors. For those 64 bits and 128 bits are more common. Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Username:Chatul (talk) 15:46, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
