A New Strategy Generation-the General-Purpose Optimizing Compiler

View publication

Abstract

This paper presents a systematic approach to the problem of generating good code with a compiler that is easy to construct. A compiler structure is proposed which relies on interprocedural data flow analysis, global optimization, and an intermediate language schema to simplify the task of writing the code generating portions of a compiler without sacrificing code quality. This structure is contrasted with a more conventional structure to explore the reasons why the new structure solves several problems inherent in the conventional structure. Further advantages which accrue from the new structure are also presented. Copyright © 1979 by The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.
