QUESTION

How can I declare some bits in assembly that are guaranteed to be stored in the same byte in the DATA space from 0x20 to 0x2F?

ANSWER

The following program code does what you want. You may change the address of the BIT_BYTE to select a different address for the byte.

DSEG    AT      20h

BIT_BYTE:       DS      1

BIT_NO_0        BIT     BIT_BYTE.0
BIT_NO_1        BIT     BIT_BYTE.1
BIT_NO_2        BIT     BIT_BYTE.2
BIT_NO_3        BIT     BIT_BYTE.3
BIT_NO_4        BIT     BIT_BYTE.4
