In other words, we want to load a register with the contents of the memory cell
that contains the entry on top of the stack. Our machine language provides two
instructions for loading registers: one with op-code 2, the other with op-code 1.
Here, the operand field contains the data involved explicitly. This is called

instructions with op-codes 1 and 3. Here the operand fields contain the address
