Microcode compaction is the conversion of sequential microcode into efficient parallel (horizontal) microcode. Local compaction techniques are those whose domain is basic blocks of code, while global methods attack code with a general flow control. Compilation of high-level microcode languages into efficient horizontal microcode and good hand coding probably both require effective global compaction techniques.
