This chapter documents various syntax quirks and undefined behaviors, such as integer overflows (everything is clipped to +/- 999), segfaults (can’t happen), and multiple simultaneous reads and writes to a Stack Memory Node.
In short: Writing to a port takes two cycles (or more if it blocks) unless a Stack Memory Node is doing the writing. Reading from a port takes one cycle (or more if it blocks). Everything else takes one cycle.
