LP Exercise 6

Today's problems are posted on the Execise Page.

Please, always think:

  • you have to submit the exercise by 1440
  • it takes some time to print and staple your exercise
  • there's almost always a long queue for printer jobs, especially after 1430
  • then when should you stop working ????
The length of the time to work for exercise is equal for everyone, it's up to you how to use it.

You don't have to use subscript in the SSA form, just write a number next to the variable. That is, x0 is good but not needed, x0 is enough.

added at 1150

Clarification for Problem 2, Question 3. Variable specification (stack-machine) and register specification (ILOC) take one byte. A memory address (in ILOC) takes two bytes.
