I presume this is true for any system with separate data/instuction
cache. It might be more of a problem for z/, with especially long
From the S/360 days, it was usual for data, even variable data, to be
close to code. That is, for non-reentrant programs. Most assembly
code and Fortran did that.
Otherwise, I believe the original question comes up on any machine
with variable sized branch instructions. Many of the stories I
remember are from the PDP-8.
A similar question comes up generating the Table of Contents
with LaTeX. When you run it, it generates the file used to make
the ToC next time. You run it again to generate the ToC, and
it will tell you if anything moved since the time before.
Hopefully it converges.
