"Jump Minimization in Linear Time", by Ramanath and Solomon, ACM ToPLaS,
Vol 6, No 4, Oct 84 pg 527-545 is less than clear. If you've got an
implementation of the algorithm described*, a better description of a
functionally equiv algorithm (even one that is slightly slower), or even
an implementation of a functionally equiv algorithm, please send me


* - It reorders a structured program's basic blocks to minimize the number
of static jumps, that is, to mazimize the number of fall throughs. It
ignores branch frequency/predictions.
