?? sounds interesting, but I don't have a clue what you mean here.

Thinking again about it, it sounds like insider gobbledegook ...

maybe it's - you insert code: the compiler delivers machine code: and 
you can check that they match because you can repeat the operation and 
get the same result - which doesn't happen with modern compilers
