Homework Help: Register machines

  1. May 12, 2009 #1
    stuck on a question on register machines for revision, basically i dont have the notes for these problems but i do have the questions and answers.

    the question starts off giving us the information

    it then asks us to draw the machine which i have no idea what to do or where to start so could do with some help on this (searched the internet for notes to no avail) and then asks us to give the trace table for 3,4,5 which is simple however i need to know how to draw the thing in order to make this simple, thanks

    You need to give us some context here. I have no idea what you mean by "register machine" other than to surmise that the list you gave is a set of instructions for a hypothetical computer.

    The first item in the list is 1(1,2, 7). What does that mean? Give us a way to understand what this notation means, and we might be able to help you. If you don't know what it means, either, then you might be out of luck.
