I am seeking literature on bytecode compilation to
a virtual machine instruction set. I have "The SmallTalk books"
that describe SmallTalk-80 implementations and last year's
Dr. Dobbs articles on "PC Supercomputing: the PORT system".
I am particularly interesting in articles that discuss
virtual machine opcode instruction sets, trade offs on VM size
vs. processor cache size, etc.
Implementations would also be welcome (in Source - C,
Pascal, assembler) for perusal. Thanks in advance. If there is
interest, I'll summarize responses and post.
