Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manual Volume 1: Basic Architecture, APPENDIX B EFLAGS CONDITION CODES.
Table B-1. EFLAGS Condition Codes says:
Code:
Mnemonic    Condition      Status Flag Setting
P           Parity         PF = 1
PE          Parity even
--------------------
NP          No parity      PF = 0
PO          Parity odd
    


When tested under Bochs (DEC CX / JP label), if result is even, PF = 0 and vice versa.
It seems, that there's an error in the manual... Or it is a bug in the emulator?

I've got it. sorry. it's my mistake. I've read the manual carefully, and it says:
Parity flag — Set if the least-significant byte of the result
contains an even number of 1 bits; cleared otherwise.
