Abstract: The Pencil and Paper Interpreter is an environment for running programs for the Pencil and Paper computer, described in Chapter 5 (pages 145-154) of The Computer Continuum (2nd edition), by Kurt Lauckner and Mildred Lintner, (c) 2001, and is intended to be a companion teaching device for users of that text. The Pencil and Paper computer is a simple fetch-execute machine, with a thirty-two 8-bit words of memory, an instruction set containing 8 instructions (including add, subtract, load, store, read from keyboard, print to screen, conditional jump, and stop), and a 14 bit accumulator. The instruction register and program counter are also illustrated. This is a useful teaching device for an introductory or literacy course, but is not sufficiently advanced for a computer architecture course.
