I'm curious about some of the details of the internals of the Python
I understand C from a hardware perspective.
x= y+ 1;
Move value from place y into a register
Add 1 to the value in the register
Move the addition's result to place x
The Python disassembly is baffling though.
>>> y= 3
0 SETUP_LOOP 31037 (to 31040)
What are SETUP_LOOP and STORE_SLICE? What are these instructions?
