1.40.2 CompiledMethod class: instance creation

literals: lits numArgs: numArg numTemps: numTemp attributes: attrArray bytecodes: bytecodes depth: depth

Answer a full fledged CompiledMethod. Construct the method header from the parameters, and set the literals and bytecodes to the provided ones. Also, the bytecodes are optimized and any embedded CompiledBlocks modified to refer to these literals and to the newly created CompiledMethod.

numArgs: args

Create a user-defined method (one that is sent #valueWithReceiver:withArguments: when it is invoked) with numArgs arguments. This only makes sense when called for a subclass of CompiledMethod.
