A 6502 instruction that atomically shifts the bits in a value one position to the right, setting the most significant bit to 0 and moving the least significant bit into carry. Useful in implementing a linear feedback shift register.
  • Function: N >>= 1
  • Updates flags: S . . . . . Z C
  • Opcode numbers:
    dp    $46
    impl  $4A  ; works on value in A
    abs   $4E
    d,x   $56
    a,x   $5E

Don't forget to add 2 cycles to modes other than impl, as those modes are read-modify-write.
