Current microprocessor based systems use inter- rupt vectors which contain only one address-that of the start address of an interrupt handler to process the inter- rupt event. An application which uses different vectors to cause execution of the same group of software rou- tines in a variety of orders requires a software overhead, usually in the form of a jump-k-subroutine table, to organ- ize the order of execution.
