Hardware Sim Error: No such built-in chip used: DRegister

Jeff George
I've got what I hope is a version of the CPU that will be at least testable, but when I run the CPU.tst script, it chokes right as it begins. The error it throws is: No such built-in chip used: DRegister. Here's a screenshot to show just how early the error is occurring:

No such built-in chip used: DRegister

I haven't knowingly messed with my built-in chips, nor have I created any files named "DRegister" elsewhere to interfere with the simulator. Both DRegister.hdl and DRegister.class are present in the built-ins directory and should be untampered-with.

When I look in the .hdl file, it looks just like any .hdl file for a built-in chip; when I open the .class file, it has much the same (but not exactly the same) indecipherable gobbledygook as I see in ARegister.class.

Until I can get the simulator past this error, I'm dead in the water. Any help would be much appreciated.

DRegister and ARegister are versions of Register with special debugging features. You need to use them in place of Register in your CPU.

Alternatively, you can use the CPU-external.tst test which doesn't use the special features of DRegister and ARegister.

Ah, that explains it. Thanks. Now that you remind me, I vaguely remember reading something about that in my first read of the chapter, before I did the Memory. I think that at the time, I pushed aside that instruction because I was focused on the Memory first, then forgot about it by the time I started the CPU.
