Greetings,

The alu_worksheet was extremely useful and I am going through these by hand. The mystery is lifting as I am slowly understanding more and giving rise to "Aha!" - Thanks!

I was thinking about the 2^6 and the 64 possible functions (operations?). I then took the bit pattern of each of the 18 functions and noticed they are of course a different pattern and therefore represent 18 of the 64 possible different binary values (vary from 000000 .. 111111).

Are these bit patterns (binary pattern of the 6 bits) called the "Opcodes" for the Hack computer? What would they be called in a real computer system?

Thank you very much
