1.4. Instruction Set Overview

The instruction set comprises ten basic instruction types:

The ARM instruction set is a good target for compilers of many different high-level languages. Where required for critical code segments, assembly code programming is also straightforward, unlike some RISC processors which depend on sophisticated compiler technology to manage complicated instruction interdependencies.
