A 3-letter opcode for the 6502 processor. This opcode increases the 8-bit value in the X register by 1. This wraps around when the end is reached (that is, increasing a value of 255 ($ff) by one turns the value into zero).

1. A member of INXS. (Just kidding.)

2. A 6502 instruction that adds 1 to register X, wrapping the value to zero if it's already 255.

  • Function: X++
