    Wink How the Java developers solve problems that are not resolved by Assembly?

    I think that the only case where you have to resort to writing binary code manually
    is when the assembler cannot output the desired code for some reason.
    If I recall correctly, there is only one such case in the HelenOS
    sources:

    debug.h in mainline/kernel/arch/mips32/include ? HelenOS

    Here they manually encode the opcodes of five special debugging
    instructions for the MSIM MIPS simulator (these instructions are not
    part of the standard MIPS ISA, thus the assembler does not know them).

    How the Java Programming Language developers solve problems that are not resolved by Assembly?

    It seems to me that you have answered the question yourself. You need instructions that aren't generated by
    the compiler. So you add them by hand. Although I don't know enough to cite a case where this has been
    a requirement.

    This is such an obscure topic. Why do you ask?

    I ask to know how the Java Programming Language developers solve problems that are not resolved by Assembly.

    Exist cases that are no solved by Assembly that are known by Java Programming Language developers?
