The final step of GCC's optimization pipeline (save cleanup) is codegen, or as it calls it `pass_final`. This is what generates the Assembly code which is (after assembling via Binutils) actually run.


After optionally deleting debug instructions, it'll "start the function" by generating labels for the hot & cold partitions of the function if any, disables assembler's preprocessing, outputs any constants used in this function, computes alignment to hold/code partitions if any, ...

Apparently there are still a lot of people out there that don't understand that most and licenses require attribution where you give credit to the creators whose work you are reusing or building upon. Being a good digital citizen and doing this only helps grow the commons. Don't forget.

I think wikipedia is a genuinely beneficial resource to human kind that does get overlooked

overlooked in that its free & is non-profit.
