- Return a ByteArray which defines some properties of the bytecodes.
For each bytecode, 4 bytes are reserved. The fourth byte is a
flag byte: bit 7 means that the argument is a line number to be
used in creating the bytecode->line number map.
The first three have a meaning only for those bytecodes that
represent a combination of operations: the combination can be
BC1 ARG BC2 OPERAND if the fourth byte's bit 0 = 0
or BC1 OPERAND BC2 ARG if the fourth byte's bit 0 = 1
where BC1 is the first byte, BC2 is the second, ARG is the third
and OPERAND is the bytecode argument as it appears in the bytecode
- Answer an array of message names that don't need to be in
literals to be sent in a method. Their position here
reflects their integer code in bytecode.
- Answer a harmoniously-indexed array of arities for the
messages answered by #specialSelectors.
