    Hey guys,

    I have to write a c code for an emulator of a very simple CPU.

    The CPU uses 16 bits for all addresses and data and has three registers, I, A and PC. The instruction cycle is as follows:

    1. Fetch the operand for the current instruction (an address) from memory using the address stored in PC and put it into the I register.
    2. Add one to PC.
    3. Subtract A from the contents of the memory at address I and put the result in A.
    4. If this operation caused a borrow then add one to PC
    5. Store A in the memory at address I
    6. Repeat from 1. until I contains the value 1999

    There are three special memory locations, 65533, 65534 and 65535.
    A read from location 65535 returns the value of PC, a write sets PC to the value written.
    A read from location 65534 returns a character from the keyboard (using getchar), a write does nothing.
    If the ASCII value of the character is less than 32, 0 should be returned.
    A write to location 65533 prints a char on the screen (using putchar), a read returns 0. (the NUL character should not be printed)

    Just needing your help on this code to complete.

     #include <iostream.h>
    unsigned int m[2000]; // the memory (2000 x 32 bit words)
    int pc=0;             // the program counter 
    void emulate(void) {
      // execute the program 
    int main() {
      FILE *fin;
      int i = 0;   // program starts at location 0
      fin = fopen("oic.out", "r"); 
      if (!fin) { 
        puts( "Can not open oic.out file" );
        return 1;
      while (!feof (fin)) {
        fscanf(fin, " %d", &m[i++]); // read the program into memory
      puts ("\n\nProgram Terminated");
      return 0;
