[cfe-dev] newbie question on traversing with recursiveASTVisitor

I am trying to traverse statement trees with recursiveASTVisitor. I call a
traverseDecl from handletranslationunit.

I understand that it will do a top down traversal and the visits will happen
in a top-down manner. ie if we have an expression -

a = b+c;
it will first visit for "=" and then move down the tree to visit for "+"

Now is there a way to come back to the "=" visit once i have visited all its
children while using recursiveASTvisitor? Basically I would want to count
the number of registers being used in each expression or more generally emit
my own unoptimized IR for it. 

But since i will have a top down visit sequence I can never come back to the
"=" visit for doing something on it once I have totally parsed the RHS of
Is there a function that i should overload..

Sorry if i am missing something very obvious here.
(I know that i can achieve this behaviour by manually making and calling
each visit fn for sub-expressions but how to do it with recursiveASTVisitor)
