The implementation of an optimizing compiler for Icon by Keith Walker( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This system is effective in the presence of values with pointer semantics and of assignments to components of data structures. The compiler stores intermediate results in temporary variables rather than on a stack. A simple and efficient algorithm was developed for determining the lifetimes of intermediate results in the presence of goal-directed evaluation. This allows an efficient allocation of temporary variables to intermediate results. The compiler uses information from type inferencing and liveness analysis to simplify generated code. Performance measurements on a variety of Icon programs show these optimizations to be effective."
