Thanks for your reply. I managed to enter data into the simulated
RAM via switches, and read it back correctly using hex displays.

But, ain't it possible to directly load a binary file into the
simulated RAM (or EPROM) to initialize its values?

I'd like to design a very simple CPU, and having to load the program
each time via switches is, to say the very least, tedious.
