In this program we will see how to transfer a block from one location to another location.
Write 8086 Assembly language program to transfer a block from one memory section to another memory section. The numbers are stored at memory offset 501 onwards. The block size is stored at memory offset 500.
Here we are initially setting up the source index register with the source of data blocks, then set the destination index register to store into another block. Then set the Data segment register and Extra Segment register to 0000H. By using MOVSB instruction, the entire block is transferred from one location to another. We are taking the size of the block, then we have set the counter register (CX) with the size. Until the CX register turns to 0, the data will be transferred.
