Most compilers ignore the problems of limited code space in embedded systems. Designers of embedded software often have no better alternative than to manually reduce the size of the source code or even the compiled code. Besides being tedious and error prone, such optimization results in obfuscated code that is difficult to maintain and reuse. In this paper, we present a step towards code-size-aware compilation. We phrase register allocation and code generation as an integer linear programmingdoi:10.1145/972627.972635 fatcat:doog5jv4y5dn3arubc3ewokeaa
