29 VOP Definition

Before the operand TN-refs are passed to the emit function, the following stuff is done: – The refs in the operand and result lists are linked together in order using the Across slot. This list is properly NIL terminated. – The TN slot in each ref is set, and the ref is linked into that TN’s refs using the Next slot. – The Write-P slot is set depending on whether the ref is an argument or result. – The other slots have the default values.

The template emit function fills in the Vop, Costs, Cost-Function, SC-Restriction and Preference slots, and links together the Next-Ref chain as appropriate.
