HLT vs JMP $

HLT vs JMP $

Hi,

Can anybody help me know the difference between HLT and JMP $ ?

Is there any possibility that NMI is generated during processor HLT state andif it occurs, how the processor reacts to it.

If NMI occurs during HLT where will the processor return after handling it.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Vikranth

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

An enabled interrupt, NMI, or a reset will resume execution after the HLT.

JMP stays at JMP location

HLT is privleged of course.
