hardware (CSR) A register in most CPUs which stores
additional information about the results of machine
instructions, e.g. comparisons. It usually consists of
several independent flags such as carry, overflow and
zero. The CSR is chiefly used to determine the outcome of
conditional branch instructions or other forms of
conditional execution.
