We propose a new variable-sized-block method for VLIW code compression. Code compression traditionally works on fixed-sized blocks and its efficiency is limited by the small block size. Branch blocks -instructions between two consecutive possible branch targets -provide larger blocks for code compression. We propose LZW-based algorithms to compress branch blocks. Our approach is fully adaptive and generates coding table on-the-fly during compression and decompression. When encountering a branch target, the co…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
