Re: ABI documentation

not can you send any links for Pentium 3 machine..

In general, yes, the ABI will be the same. Otherwise, we would not be able to emit code that runs on any x86 without making the compiler a lot more complicated.


There are special situations where the ABI may change if it depends on new architecture features, e.g. some of the SIMD stuff depends on whether you have SSE registers or SSE2 registers, etc.
