I would be happy to participate in such a discussion. You comment that
you looked at several books. I don't know what they are. I suggest two
books (if you haven't looked at them). The book that I wrote "Building
an Optimizing Compiler" by Robert Morgan and Steve Muchnick's book -
sorry I don't have my copy here at the moment - his is published by
Morgan Kaufmann.

I know that I have an extensive discussion of intermediate languages
(from my own point of view of course) and I recall that Muchnick has a
discussion also.
