Your code looks correct and you've basically figured out the problem -- you
need a way of creating a new temporary data location to hold the STEP and
LIMIT values. So you just need to call a 'newdatalocation' function that is
exactly analogous to the 'newlabel' function you're already calling, and it
will give you a unqiue tag/address that you can use with the lvalue/rvalue
Alternately, you could introduce new instructions to manipulate the stack,
which would have the advantage that it would be reentrant -- using a global
temp to hold the STEP and LIMIT values will fail if the loop contains a
recursive call to the function containing the loop.
