360 Assembly/360 Instructions/LGR
LGR - Load Register - 64 Bit - Opcode B904 - RRE Instruction
- LGR 2,6
The specific syntax is
- LGR target register, source register.
|RRE Instruction (4 bytes)|
|Bytes 1 and 2||Byte 3||Byte 4|
|target register||source register|
- The first argument is a target register which value is affected by the instruction.
- The second argument is the source value register.
The LGR instruction is 64-bit, and is only available on the 370 series and z/System. It will cause an opcode exception on the 360 series.
The LGR instruction copies a 64-bit value from the register specified by the second argument to the register specified by the first argument.
Condition codes are not changed.
Register 0 is valid for either register and is not ignored as in some other instructions.
Exceptions and Faults
- 360 Series: Opcode Exception
- 370 Series and zSystem: None.
Since LA does not access memory, but only calculates a number, which can, but does not have to be, an address, the most closely related instruction is probably ALR - Add Logical Register. To think about it, LA calculates a number, L loads a value from memory. To think of LA as being related to Load instructions is neither proper, nor helpful.
