  abstract =     "On many modern computers, the processor control unit
                 is microprogrammed rather than built directly in
                 hardware. One of the tasks of the microcode is to
                 decode machine-level instructions: for each such
                 instruction, it must be ensured that control-flow is
                 directed to the appropriate microprogram for emulating
                 it. We have investigated the use of genetic programming
                 for evolving this instruction decode logic. Success is
                 highly dependent on the number of opcodes in the
                 instruction set and their relationship to the
                 conditional branch and shift instructions offered on
                 the micro architecture, but experimental results are
