I have a one byte field in the input file . The value could be a hexadecimal from 00 to 99 .

I have to decrement the value by 1 and update the 1 byte field with new value.

What is the most efficient and shortest way of doing it in assembler .Please help with the code.

Looks OK. You can eliminate the 2-Byte H'1' Literal by using -

Code:

AHI R5,-1    SUBTRACT 1 FROM R5 (CC SET)

or you can use -

Code:

BCTR R5,0    SUBTRACT 1 FROM R5 (CC NOT SET)

There isn't any SHI, so using the AHI adding a negative 1 will work.

FWIW, BCTR R0,0 will not work....
