In the section "Registers", address 10 $SB, there appears: "ZZZZSTUV". Can someone explain what those characters mean? John Vandenberg 05:39, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

This is how the bits of the register are identified in the IBM documentation.
  • S - Sign bit
  • T - Flag bit
  • U - Flag bit
  • V - Flag bit
  • Z - Zone bit
