17.7 Register Usage

This section explains how to describe what registers the target machine has, and how (in general) they can be used.

The description of which registers a specific instruction can use is done with register classes; see Register Classes. For information on using registers to access a stack frame, see Frame Registers. For passing values in registers, see Register Arguments. For returning values in registers, see Scalar Return.
