I am interested in knowing the techniques used in JIT machine code
generation. e.g. some Java interpreters convert frequently used byte
code sections into machine code and transfer control to it. Where is the
machine code stored and how is control transfered? Is the machine code
just stored on the heap somewhere and a (*pointer_to_code_on_heap)() (or
some such mechanism) used? I know there was a thread on this a long time
ago and I don't know where the FAQ for this newsgroup is. Any comments
and pointers to references are appreciated. Thanks.
