Trying to figure out an algorithm's purpose. (Z80 coding.)

Note about my notes: 0?,C,B,17 are held in CAA8 through CAAB in order. Ignore the 0?, it's actually there to handle an outside process.

I have been trying to figure out what the algorithm is for, but so far, no luck. Any ideas?

Aside from the fact this is in the wrong category, code with no context can be almost anything. Figuring out what the variables correspond to is probably a good start.

Right, any idea what's the purpose of the value in register DE and RAM $CAAB?

As it turns out, DE is supposed to hold a number. RAM $CAAB is used to determine how many more times the thing loops.

Through a suggestion from the chat room to use a debugger, I managed to stumble upon what I did miss: while I did guess that I was missing something with the Carry Flag, I didn't guess that, as it turns out, 00:2A42's Carry Flag setting is preserved up to the next Rotate instruction. This allows the new BC to actually hold something sooner or later. A little more fiddling around with the debugger and it turns out that the whole thing turns out to be one thing: division. As it turns out, when $CAAB is finally 0, DE should have its final result being what it was divided by old BC, and BC should be holding the remainder.

Well, now this topic is unnecessary. And apologies for posting in the wrong forum. I saw "Script Help" and figured that's where I should post. Ah well.

Well, let's do an example, since somebody questioned this on PM:

DE = 100, BC = 20, HL = CAAB, CAA9 = 20, CAAA = 0

(Spoiler tags for length.)

Spoiler:

00:2A5F 18DC    jr $2A3D <-- A = 0, DE = 200, BC = 0, HL = CAAA, CAA9 = 20, CAAA = 0, CAAB = 16

This didn't seem to do anything, but look again. DE has been increased. Let's keep the loop while tracking DE and CAAB:
CAAB = 17, DE = 100
CAAB = 16, DE = 200
CAAB = 15, DE = 400
CAAB = 14, DE = 800
CAAB = 13, DE = 1600
CAAB = 12, DE = 3200
CAAB = 11, DE = 6400
CAAB = 10, DE = 12800
CAAB = 9, DE = 25600
CAAB = 8, DE = 51200

Now let's do the loop again, with that last line, because double 51200 is going to exceed 65535.

Well, now BC is changed, so we may actually do something. Let's compare BC, DE, and CAAB for now.
BC = 0, DE = 51200, CAAB = 8
BC = 1, DE = 36864, CAAB = 7
BC = 3, DE = 8192, CAAB = 6
BC = 6, DE = 16384, CAAB = 5
BC = 12, DE = 32768, CAAB = 4

Oh, BC is going to exceed 20, so let's see what happens again.
