meany, meany people have asked me this, and I give up. here you go, how to make an ALU used in redstone computers and CPUs. I will be making a, probably 3 part series on how to make all these parts.

the ALU:

the RAM:

the final CPU(not yet computer!):


next in line: building program memory and the clock.
do you think the computer shud have conditional branching? I think not, I will make a video on this later.
what else do you want me to make a tut about?

i have my own GPU and i wanna test it on something.

EDIT: you should make the command interpreter and clock system, i wanna get started on those too.

the clock decides the speed of the computer. whenever the "clock" "ticks", the computer does something.

But why is there a need of a clock, when you just use buttons because the computer doesnt need to work when there is nothing to do

computers run programs. if there is nothing to do, a computer checks constantly for something to do. imagine you had to press a button on your laptop/computer for it to work. you will need to press it a few trillion times a second for your computer to even work normaly!

Yes but in my computer I play games like Battlefield 3 ...and in Minecraft the only thing it does is load/write data and execute programms like 1+1

You're simulating a computer. And how do computers know if you clicked a button or not?
They keep track of the controls like buttons and check every 'tick' if you are clicking at the location of the button or not and call the code associated with the button if needed.

Explain how all the parts interact and how they link together and work. I'm very good with redstone it's just don't know how to link all the parts together and form the computer.

Well yes. If you're going to do this then at least do it well. ;)

How exactly would you make the clock control the computer?

I'm just wondering, I'm not dissing computer making or you or anything, but is there a "practical" use for computer components in minecraft?

GLaDOS security computer, perhaps? Or some sort of logging system? Home atomation? Minecart station logging and atomation?
