Instructions

The virtual machine maintains a stack for you to store things. Each cell in the stack is of size 4 bytes. A genome program starts with TTC and ends with TTC CGG and it should have the extension .atcg. Please check below to know what each instruction means.

Stack manipulation

  • AAA - Duplicate the whole stack
  • AAT - Duplicate top n items on the stack
  • AAC - Duplicate top item on the stack
  • AAG - Duplicate bottom n items on the stack
  • ATA - Push number onto stack
  • ATT - Pop top n items from stack
  • ATC - Pop number from stack (Discarding)
  • ATG - Pop bottom n items from stack
  • ACA - Clear the whole stack
  • ACT - Copy top nth item on the stack
  • ACC - Slide n items keeping top item
  • ACG - Copy bottom nth item on the stack
  • AGA - Reverse the whole stack
  • AGT - Reverse the top n items
  • AGC - Reverse the top 2 items
  • AGG - Reverse the bottom n items

Arithematic

  • TAA - Addition 1+2 items and push the result
  • TAT - Subtraction 2-1 items and push the result
  • TAC - Multiplication 2x1 items and push the result
  • TAG - Division 2/1 items and push the result
  • TTA - Increment the top item by n (if nothing n=1)
  • TTT - Decrement the top item by n (if nothing n=1)

Blocks and Jumps

  • TTC - Start block
  • TTG - Stop block
  • TCA - Jump unconditionally to start of the block
  • TCT - Jump on top item zero to start of the block
  • TCC - Jump on nth item zero to start of the block
  • TCG - Jump on bottom item zero to start of the block
  • TGA - Jump unconditionally to end of the block
  • TGT - Jump on top item zero to end of the block
  • TGC - Jump on nth item zero to end of the block
  • TGG - Jump on bottom item zero to end of the block

Printing

  • CAA - Print the whole stack
  • CAT - Print top n items of stack
  • CAC - Print top item of the stack
  • CAG - Print bottom n items of stack
  • CTA - Print the whole stack (ASCII)
  • CTT - Print top n items of stack (ASCII)
  • CTC - Print top item of stack (ASCII)
  • CTG - Print bottom n items of stack (ASCII)

Scanning

  • CCA - Read input to n given by top item of stack
  • CCT - Read input to top nth of the stack
  • CCC - Read input to top of the stack
  • CCG - Read input to bottom nth of the stack

Miscellaneous

  • CGA - Move to the top of the stack
  • CGT - Move down the stack by n (If nothing, n=1)
  • CGC - Move up the stack by n (If nothing, n=1)
  • CGG - End program

Numbers

All the above instructions which contain n are/can be followed by a number which is represented by the following

  • GAA - Hex 0
  • GAT - Hex 1
  • GAC - Hex 2
  • GAG - Hex 3
  • GTA - Hex 4
  • GTT - Hex 5
  • GTC - Hex 6
  • GTG - Hex 7
  • GCA - Hex 8
  • GCT - Hex 9
  • GCC - Hex a
  • GCG - Hex b
  • GGA - Hex c
  • GGT - Hex d
  • GGC - Hex e
  • GGG - Hex f

Comments

All comments are placed in {}

Example

So, If I want to push a number 15000 onto stack, I can do the following

ATA GAG GCC GCT GCA
{push 0x3a98}
