hi everybody,
does anybody know what happens to static registers (gr0-gr31) in case of a context switch.
in the manual, it says static registers are visible to all procedures(i guess it shouldn't otherwise on a context switch another process would have the same static registers) On the other hand, stacked registers are local to procedures and saved and restored by RSE which makes sense to me.
