/* Change of width--truncation and extension of integers or reals--
is represented with NOP_EXPR. Proper functioning of many things
assumes that no other conversions can be NOP_EXPRs.
Conversion between integer and pointer is represented with CONVERT_EXPR.
Converting integer to real uses FLOAT_EXPR
and real to integer uses FIX_TRUNC_EXPR.
Here is a list of all the functions that assume that widening and
narrowing is always done with a NOP_EXPR:
In convert.c, convert_to_integer.
In c-typeck.c, build_binary_op (boolean ops), and truthvalue_conversion.
In expr.c: expand_expr, for operands of a MULT_EXPR.
In fold-const.c: fold.
In tree.c: get_narrower and get_unwidened. */

is always TYPE. This function implements all reasonable
conversions; callers should filter out those that are
not permitted by the language being compiled. */
