Scott & Bob:
I'd also be inclined to believe that Frank Testa was the first to use
that implementation... His use is the earliest reference I've seen.
Of course, others among us have discovered it independently.
Testa also pointed out -- and I only learned about this in 1994, so
he knew about it earlier -- that, with a minor modification, the
code works for valid-carry two-byte SUBTRACTION, too:
Note that the Z flag is invalid at the conclusion of the suhtraction.
