7.4 The instructions

The instructions are written in a LISP-like manner. The indexes of X and Y variables start with the index 1. Structures are coded by a list (fun arity). The list structures are coded as nestings of the structure (cns car cdr) on the classified clauses representation level. The code generator takes care of these structures, generating the more optimal list instructions.
