Is that good or bad ? ;-)

Hmm.... maybe I'm in the pumped up state of exam season .... My brain
is out of hibernation ;)

I never realized I fixed so many things ... But keep the good bugs
coming folks , I'm still ready for more ... Typically there are 3
good bugs remaining and 1 set of features missing (pointers as arrays).
Of which the 2 good bugs can be worked around ... I'm working on the
3'rd ... But I may just be terribly wrong :-)

The good news is that I tried a few tests to see how the running time
of cscc grows when the number of useful statements increases .... And
to all my measurements it seems to be growing linearly ? ... And the 
funny part is that my flow analysis code (which is terribly broken) 
seems to be giving a linear increase as well .... 

This surprises me as gcc tends to grow non-linearly and so does most 
of the native compilers ....

Other than blaming the register allocator , I can only say one thing 
"TreeCC" ..

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
