Minscode is a simple langauge based on the Minsky machine. It has 4 registers. `A`

, `B`

, and `C`

are normal numeric registers, `c`

is a conditional register.

## Instructions

+ Increment the current register. - If the current register is more than 0, decrement it and set the condition to false. Otherwise, set the condition to true. A Switch to register A. This is where the program starts. B Switch to register B. C Switch to register C. ! Negate c () Run the code inside if c is true. {} Run the code inside until c is true. , Output the value of the current register. . Input to the current register.

## Programs

Prints out the Fibonacci numbers:

{, { Output A (Initially 0). } B- {-C+B} { Move the value of B to C. } A- {-B+C+A} { Move the value of A to B and C. The value of C is now A+B. } B- {-A+B} { Move the value of B to A. } C- {-C+B} { Move the value of C to B. } A+- { Set the condition to false so the loop keeps going. } }
