Minimal instruction set

Recommended Posts

Consider a CPU whose instruction set consists of only one instruction: instr a, b, x where a, b and x are the addresses of operands. What this instruction does is: *a = *a-*b; if (*a < 0) jump *x; Do you think it is possible to buid a general-purpose CPU with only this instruction?
