Abstract

Branching path analysis is used in the code generation phase of a compiler to generate correct branching paths for conditional branches. In a simple comparison operation, there is only one possible branching path, but in a relational expression that contains many comparison operators, the problem of determining all of the proper branching paths can become very difficult.
