In the article listed below Peter Kessler describes a method for automatically
analyzing a machine description to discover 'machine idioms'. He mentions
near the end of the article that over 300 idioms for the 68000 and a similar
number for the VAX were found.

I realize this is ancient material in terms of current technology, but were
these idioms ever published anywhere?
