Automatic Generation of Code Generators

Fri, 02/15/2002


Here we present the development of a code transformation system, specifically for scalar transformations, which can be used either as a tool to assist the generation of code transformers or as an environment for experimentation with code transformations. The code transformation system provides an environment in which one can specify a tranformation using dependence relations(in the specification language we have designed), generate code for a transformer from its specification, and experiment with the generated transformers on real-world progrms.
