yes even i think, Symbol table and CFG are NOT IRs,
bcoz if you check in the textbook(ullman) chapter 8: Inermediate Code Generation, they have mentioned only about 3 types, Syntax trees and Postfix notation and 3 address codes.
ALSO they have have not even uttered a word about CFG in chapter 8
Actually in Chapter 9, i.e. Code generation , they have actually introduced the concept of Control flow graph, so it makes pretty clear that CFG is not a IR
also if you google out about CFG then you will find some webistes of foregin universities like the one i found was of cornell, with a headline “..IR and CFG” which again makes it clear that these 2 are different and not one and the same…
plz @Arjun Sir look here and make it clear…!!!
