Abstract : A small hypothetical computer was designed and simulated using a 2250 Display Unit operating on an IBM 360/67 computer. The hypothetical computer features a micro-programming capability which allows the user to design his own machine language structure for any particular application. The 2250 console is set up to simulate the operator's console of the hypothetical machine, with the CRT being used to display selected portions of memory and registers. For ease of use, a compiler is included in the system to allow the user to write his microprogram in a higher level language. Discussions of the compiler, the interpreter, and the programming and creation of the proper type of graphic display are included. A set of operating instructions for the hypothetical computer enables the user to program and operate the machine without the need to be familiar with the 2250 display unit beforehand. (Author)
