Accumulators Stacks Registers

less than 1 minute read


I’ve just finished up another week of computer science. My computer architecture course continues to be the most interesting. This week I learned a great deal about three types of computer architectures. The register based architecture like the MIPS processors, an accumulator based architecture like the ENIAC or DEC PDP-8 and the Stack based architecture like those of HP calculators. Very interesting stuff.

My other classes are not nearly as interesting. Mostly writting technical documents and interpreting code. Although I did have to rewrite some CLU code today which had me scratching my head for a while. It’s hard enough to read new code, let alone in a syntax you’ve never used before. Hopefully I got it, but I have to admit, I don’t think I came close :-/
