        I would like to indulge in correspondence about Turing Machines.

        Over the past six years I have built the paper-strip model and then written an interpreter in Word2003/VBA.

        The Interpreter is a tad overwhelming; it allows an unlimited number of libraries of subroutines, break points(transient and permanent) and any day now, macros (not the MS concept but the in-line code expansion we grew up with in assembly-language days).

         
        I would be delighted to entertain
        (1) The curious who just want to run one or two simple sample Turing machines
        (2) Those who would be happy to test my interpreter and offer comments or suggestions (or report bugs!)
        (3) Those who, perhaps, would like to write their own interpreter, perhaps in a language other than VBA, whereby we could run parallel tests.
        (4) technical Writers who obtain perverse pleasure in pointing out mistakes in my documentation.(grin!)

        I have attached two PDF files to weed out the faint-hearted (Huge grin)

        Please respond here
        Thanks
