Code density is an important issue in memory constrained processors. Echo Technology (ET) can be employed to replace a repeating code sequence with a single ECHO instruction. Its usefulness for code size reduction has been demonstrated on JAVA bytecode and RISC binaries. In this paper, we evaluate its effectiveness for IA32 binaries. Common perception(More)
Code density is an important issue in memory constrained systems. Some RISC processor, e.g. the THUMB extension in the ARM processor, supports aggressive code size reduction even at the cost of significant performance loss. In this paper, we develop an algorithm that utilizes a set of novel variable length Echo instructions and evaluate its effectiveness(More)
