Some notes on the above:

  • The instruction count does not include EQUB, EQUW, EQUD, EQUS or SKIP operatives; these are counted as data.
  • Each part of a multi-part subroutine counts as an individual subroutine.
  • The statistics are produced by a relatively simple static analysis of the source code. They are not 100% accurate, though they are pretty close.
