Along with the other suggestions posted, I would also suggest you 
take a hard look at any switch statements and the assembly it 
produces. AFAIU, it depends on how many cases you have in the swtich 
how GCC will implement it. Sometimes it may be optimal, other times 

If the cases are sequential values, it *might* be more prudent to 
implement it as a table. Other times, if there are not many cases, a 
simple if-elseif structure will be more efficient on space. You'll 
probably have to experiment with the C code and see what assembly it
