After Doug's message, I carefull re-read this, and I'm not sure it's correct?
The PDP-11 has pre-decrement and post-increment, not the other way around (as
above) - unless I'm misunderstanding what you meant by those terms?
*p++ = 0;
turns (if p is in R2) into
R2 is used, and then incremented after it has been used.
