Origin: From integer, by shortening
INT is an assembly language instruction for x86 processors that generates a software interrupt. It takes the interrupt number formatted as a byte value. When written in assembly language, the instruction is written like this: where X is the software interrupt that should be generated. Depending on the context, compiler, or assembler, a software interrupt number is often given as a hexadecimal value, sometimes with a prefix 0x or the suffix h. For example, INT 21H will generate the software interrupt 0x21, causing the function pointed to by the 34th vector in the interrupt table to be executed, which is typically an MS-DOS API call.
