A technique is described whereby a simple roll-back method combines both hardware and software to achieve a precise interrupt in a linear pipeline with out-of-order execution on systems, such as the IBM System/370. The concept is an improvement in very large-scale integrated (VLSI) circuitry environments when the driving capability and wiring restrictions are of major concern.
