# INT 04H: Overflow Interrupt

The INT 04H vector can be used as one way to minimize the size of programs
that perform a lot of arithmetic operations.
After any arithmetic operation, the INTO instruction will test for
arithmetic overflow, and if the CPU flag is set (OF=OV=1), then INT 04H
is executed.
You might see code such as:
mov ax,var_1
add ax,var_2
into ;2-byte test for arithmetic overflow
... etc. ... ;either no overflow or it has been handled
; by the interrupt handler
