When printing Values the current code restricts the information to a single character which cuts out any information about whether a type is a reference or not. Instead Value should allow subclasses more control over what is printed for the type information. In current graal this means instead of “rax|q” you’ll see “rax|QWORD[.]” for a reference type. This also makes the platform dependent types more obvious since you don’t have to guess what “q” means.
