In recent years, many architectural design efforts have focused on maximizing performance for frequently executed, simple instructions. The authors describe how a small set of primitive instructions combined with what is considered careful frequency analysis and clever programming allows the Hewlett-Packard (HP) Precision Architecture integer multiplication and division implementation to provid
