I am looking for references to compiler techniques that significantly
reduce object code size (by a factor of 2 or more). Probably this
would involve looking for common code sequences to group into
subroutines. My library database search came up empty.
The primary application area is memory-limited embedded controllers.

Thanks for any leads, and I'll e-mail results to interested parties.
