I am currently working with an Intel Pentium II/Windows 95 computer and
as part of my work I am porting the sC++ language extension (see to Windows95.

I have, however, run into a bizarre problem with our language kernel and
need to know the layout of the registers that are used by the GNU C++
(EGCS 1.1 (i586) and GNU 2.8.1 (i386-cygwin32)) to determine the cause
of the problem (or eliminate a possible cause!). In particular the
layout of any "pseudo"-registers which are not placed in a hardware
register. Where are such "pseudo"-registers stored? In the local
function frame or at an fixed address? In the latter case how do I find
the(se) address(es)?

Thank you in advance,

Jan Madsen
