## 8-Bit Computer ALU And The Flags Register

In this post, I will talk about the ALU and the flags register of my 8-bit computer. The arithmetical logical unit(ALU) is where all the computation happens in a computer. The ALU of this computer is very simple and only has the option to add or subtract numbers. So something like multiplication would have to be implemented in software. The flags register stores the Carry(a carry occurs) and Is Zero(the result is a zero) flags that it receieves from the ALU.
