Term representations, instruction compression and argument passing in the WAM.
Bart Demoen
(K.U. Leuven, Belgium)

In the context of dProlog, a system especially made for easy experimentation in WAM implementation, empirical results are presented on the performance impact of term representation, instruction compression and argument passing. In particular, four term representations are discussed (plain WAM, heap variables, tag-on-data and PARMA variables) and a comparison is made between the schema for passing arguments through the stack or through WAM argument registers.
