# SlotToReg moves data into a register from memory.
# RegToSlot moves data into memory from a register.
# Both use a base memory (a register)
# This is because that is what cpu's can do. In programming terms this would be accessing
# an element in an array, in the case of SlotToReg setting the value in the array.
# btw: to move data between registers, use Transfer
class SlotToReg < Getter
# Produce a SlotToReg instruction.
# Array is a register
# index may be a Symbol in which case is resolves with resolve_index.
# a new regsister will be created as the result, ie the reg part for slot_to_reg
