 Instruction (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The types of instruction allowed are defined and determined within the particular platform's instruction set architecture (ISA), which also determines register sources and destination operands, and perhaps an immediate field.
A portion (field) of the instruction designates the operation to be done and is called an opcode; since the numeric value of this is not very meaningful to humans, a corresponding short abbreviation is used by programmers.
The size, or "width" of an instruction depends on the architecture of the platform, but it is usually from 4 to 64 bits wide.

One radical new area of research that could lead to computers with dramatic new capabilities is the field of quantum computing but this is presently in its early stages.
Computers with general-purpose capabilities are called Turing-complete and this status is often used as the capability that defines modern computers, however, this definition is.

 Computer Science as a Profession
Any discussion of names of the computing sciences professions must recognize the semantic imprecision and confusion that plagues practically every aspect of computers, computer studies, and the range of traditional academic disciplines that increasingly use computers in instruction and in academic research.
Computer science is a young discipline that is evolving rapidly from its beginnings in the 1940's.
In computer science there is an inherent intermingling of the theoretical concepts of computability and algorithmic efficiency with the modern practical advancements in electronics that continue to stimulate advances in the discipline.

A computer is a device for making calculations or controlling operations that are expressible in numerical or logical terms.
While factually accurate, this definition and those found in other dictionaries are so broad that they fail to differentiate between the many types of historic, contemporary and potential future computers.
For example, economic models have been constructed using water flowing though multiple-constricted channels, and between 1903 and 1909 Percy E. Ludgate developed a design for a programmable analytical machine based weaving technologies in which variables were carried in shuttles.

 Encyclopedia article on Complex Instruction Set Computer [EncycloZine]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
A Complex Instruction Set Computer (CISC) is an instruction set architecture (ISA) in which each instruction can indicate several low-level operations, such as a load from memory, an arithmetic operation, and a memory store, all in a single instruction.
While they achieved their aim of allowing high-level language constructs to be expressed in fewer instructions, it was observed that they did not always result in improved performance.
Implementing all these complex instructions also required a lot of work on the part of the chip designer, and a lot of transistors; this left less room on the processor to optimize performance in other ways.
