16.112 NOP

No Operation.

Usage

No Operation does nothing, other than advance the value of the program counter by 4. This instruction can be used for instruction alignment purposes.

Note:

The timing effects of including a NOP instruction in a program are not guaranteed. It can increase execution time, leave it unchanged, or even reduce it. Therefore, NOP instructions are not suitable for timing loops.
