I think I have seen this question before (didn't see any responses,
though), so please notify me if it is a FAQ (is there a FAQ for this
Anyway, I am looking for information on codegeneration for processors with
odd instruction sets (like the Intel 80x86 where the operands for certain
instructions need to be in certain registers etc.) The literature I have
read has elegantly skipped such nasty behaviour...
[This is a favorite topic of mine, and one on which the literature is
indeed sparse. I presume that the odd processors of interest are the
Intel 86 line, since they are irregular, have strange addressing, are
register starved, are well documented, and are of course extremely
