This document describes the VLSI-PLM instruction set and includes small programs to test details of its implementation. The VLSI-PLM is a single chip implementation of the PLM, a WAM based instruction set for the execution of Prolog. The instruction set is described using C-like code based on the actual microcode of the VLSI-PLM. The test programs are a collection of simple Prolog programs which were used to debug the microcode. This report compliments the report of Fagin and Dobry, The Berkeley PLM Instruction Set: An Instruction Set for Prolog.
