NAME GetCC -- get condition codes in a 68010 compatible way. SYNOPSIS conditions = GetCC() D0 UWORD GetCC(void); FUNCTION The 68000 processor has a "MOVE SR,<ea>" instruction which gets a copy of the processor condition codes. On the 68010,20 and 30 CPUs, "MOVE SR,<ea>" is privileged. User code will trap if it is attempted. These processors need to use the "MOVE CCR,<ea>" instruction instead. This function provides a means of obtaining the CPU condition codes in a manner that will make upgrades transparent. This function is VERY short and quick. RESULTS conditions - the 680XX condition codes NOTE This call is guaranteed to preserve all registers. This function may be implemented as code right in the jump table.
