URM Programs are Countably Infinite

The set $\mathbf P$ of all URM programs is countably infinite.


We can immediately see that $\mathbf P$ is infinite as the number of URM instructions is infinite.

From Unique Code for URM Program, we see that $\gamma: \mathbf P \to \N$ is also an injection.

The result follows from Domain of Injection to Countable Set is Countable.
