I am working on my mini project(Intel 8085 Simulator)
I am faced with a huge problem
How do i store the instruction set??
What i am doing currently is i have made a structure
<Serializable()> _ Public Structure inTab Dim iName As String Dim iLen As Integer Dim regPair As Boolean Dim addMode As String End Structure
I have made the structure Serializable and i made an object
Dim b As inTab
so that using a BinaryFormatter i can write it to .bin file
A sample of the inTab Object would be
b.iName = "SUB" b.iLen = 1 b.regPair = False b.addMode = "Register"
and i have stored it to a .bin file
There are around 65 Instructions which means that there are 65 objects of type inTab in the .bin file
How do i find the end of the .bin file while i am reading from it
In C++ i used to do
What is the VB equivalent of this??
Am i using efficient method(This is my first month with VB!!!!!!)
Is database approach more useful?? If yes, where do i get started??
So many questions!!! I guess you people will understand
Thanks in advance
