Methods for Saving and Restoring Register Values across Function Calls

Abstract

The method used to save and restore the values of registers across function calls can affect performance and influence the design of specific instructions. This paper describes the results of an experiment that empirically evaluated six different schemes for saving and restoring registers on CISC machines. The methods do not require special hardware or… (More)
