Thanks for the hint.  Now I changed INPUT_ENCODING/OUTPUT_ENCODING to
ISO-8859-1, then I get another error:

Overfull \hbox (93.81409pt too wide) in paragraph at lines 178--178
[]\T1/pcr/m/n/8 185    //To enter stop mode, the following procedure should be
done before the STOP instruction is executed.[]

! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:Â not set up for use with LaTeX.

See the inputenc package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.178 \end{verbatim}

After I pressed ENTER after the '?' to skip the error several times,
the pdflatex process finally still failed, and ended in:

Any clue?
