Central Processing Unit (cpu)
Although the computer was thought-about “small and primitive” by the standards of its time, it was the first working machine to comprise all of the parts important to a modern electronic pc. As soon as the Baby had demonstrated the feasibility of its design, a project was initiated at the university to develop it into a more usable computer, the Manchester Mark 1. Grace Hopper was the primary person to develop a compiler for programming language. The ENIAC was the first electronic programmable pc built in the U.S. Although the ENIAC was similar to the Colossus, it was a lot sooner, more flexible, and it was Turing-complete. Like the Colossus, a “program” on the ENIAC was defined by the states of its patch cables and switches, a far cry from the saved program digital machines that came later.
The Manchester Baby was the world’s first stored-program … Read MoreContinue reading
