Can anyone tell me of any papers, books, or personal experiences of
optimization techniques relevant to the choice of memory models for IBM
I have been toying with the idea that there are some optimizations
possible, such as using static analysis to detect when a pointer need only
be a near pointer, or when a function call need only be a near call, etc.
It seems to me that common compilers accept the user's choice of model and
don't attempt to determine whether it is an inefficient choice.
Thanks in advance,
[Some compilers automatically make calls to static functions near, even in
medium or large model code, but I've never seen one try to guess what pointer
model to use. -John]
