I'm trying to read some spec for an emulator, and I've come across this sentence:
"The machine is word addressable and has a memory of 600 words, each consisting of 4 decimal digits"
What is a word though? I'm interpreting that like:
memory; // memory is a type that can hold numbers 0 - 9999.
but that's not like any data type I've heard of (char, short, int, float, double) don't have such a range definition. Am I missing what this is? (well I know I am, can anyone explain?)
