Hey guys

I'm having a little trouble understanding what is going on with this instruction for the question.

Question
The HC12/S12 has a DAA instruction which takes the result of an addition operation and corrects the result to represent the result of a Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) addition. The instruction operations are as de- scribed in the table below.

The two numbers added together are \$99 in the A register and \$22 in the B register which actually represent 99 and 22 in BCD.

a)What is the result of executing an ABA instruction and the subsequent execution of a DAA instruction in- clude the effect on the carry (C) bit of the condition code register.

Solution
After execution of ABA Register A ___\$BB___ Carry bit _______0_______
After execution of DAA Register A ___\$21___ Carry bit _______1_______

I understand the addition of the to numbers in bcd (99 + 22 = BB), but what the heck is going on with DAA???

can anyone explain the steps taken? (showing what bits are contributing to the DCC instruction and how they change/why?)

thanks a bunch guys
