Abstract

During the process of code optimization, a pro- grammer often deals with the problem of a trade-off between MIPS and memory. The changes in the code can either reduce both MIPS and memory con- sumption, or they can reduce one and use more of the other. This trade-off between MIPS and memo- ry raised a problem: Which one should be preferred? In order to solve this problem, the customer has to define the desired MIPS and memory consump- tion before starting the code optimization process.
