I am doing research on debugging optimized code. The running time of my
algorithms depends on certain program characteristics:

        - the number of basic blocks in a routine

        - the number of predecessors and successors per block

        - the number of assignments to a variable within a routine,
including assignments through pointers that might
point to that variable

        - the number of paths to a block

        - the number of variables addressable within a routine

Can anyone point me to papers that have measured any of these things (for
any class of programs)?
