Instruction scheduling for the IBM RISC System/6000 processor

by H. S. Warren,Jr.
For fast execution on the IBM RISC System/6000® processor, instructions should be arranged in an order that uses the arithmetic units as efficiently as possible. This paper describes the scheduling requirements of the machine, and a scheduling algorithm for it that is used in two compilers.
