These nodes represent array accesses. The first operand is the array;
the second is the index. To calculate the address of the memory
accessed, you must scale the index by the size of the type of the array
elements. The type of these expressions must be the type of a component of
the array. The third and fourth operands are used after gimplification
to represent the lower bound and component size but should not be used
These nodes represent access to a range (or “slice”) of an array. The
operands are the same as that for
ARRAY_REF and have the same
meanings. The type of these expressions must be an array whose component
type is the same as that of the first operand. The range of that array
type determines the amount of data these expressions access.
These nodes represent non-static data member accesses. The first
operand is the object (rather than a pointer to it); the second operand
FIELD_DECL for the data member. The third operand represents
the byte offset of the field, but should not be used directly; call
These nodes are used to represent the address of an object. (These expressions will always have pointer or reference type.) The operand may be another expression, or it may be a declaration.
As an extension, GCC allows users to take the address of a label. In
this case, the operand of the
ADDR_EXPR will be a
LABEL_DECL. The type of such an expression is
If the object addressed is not an lvalue, a temporary is created, and the address of the temporary is used.
These nodes are used to represent the object pointed to by a pointer. The operand is the pointer being dereferenced; it will always have pointer or reference type.
These nodes are used to represent the object pointed to by a pointer offset by a constant. The first operand is the pointer being dereferenced; it will always have pointer or reference type. The second operand is a pointer constant serving as constant offset applied to the pointer being dereferenced with its type specifying the type to be used for type-based alias analysis. The type of the node specifies the alignment of the access.
These nodes represent memory accesses whose address directly map to
an addressing mode of the target architecture. The first argument
TMR_BASE and is a pointer to the object being accessed.
The second argument is
TMR_OFFSET which is a pointer constant
with dual purpose serving both as constant offset and holder of
the type used for type-based alias analysis. The first two operands
have exactly the same semantics as
MEM_REF. The third
and fourth operand are
the former is an integer and the latter an integer constant. The
fifth and last operand is
TMR_INDEX2 which is an alternate
non-constant offset. Any of the third to last operands may be
NULL if the corresponding component does not appear in
the address, but
TMR_STEP shall be
always supplied in pair. The Address of the
is determined in the following way.
TMR_BASE + TMR_OFFSET + TMR_INDEX * TMR_STEP + TMR_INDEX2
The type of the node specifies the alignment of the access.
