◆ func()

virtual int optinsn_t::func ( mblock_t blk,
minsn_t ins 
)
pure virtual

Optimize an instruction.

Parameters
blkcurrent basic block. maybe NULL, which means that the instruction must be optimized without context
insinstruction to optimize; it is always a top-level instruction. the callback may not delete the instruction but may convert it into nop (see mblock_t::make_nop). to optimize sub-instructions, visit them using minsn_visitor_t. sub-instructions may not be converted int nop but can be converted to "mov x,x". for example: add x,0,x => mov x,x
Returns
number of changes made to the instruction. if after this call the instruction's use/def lists have changed, you must mark the block level lists as dirty (see mark_lists_dirty)
