Developing an optimising compiler for occam

Authors: Kalogeropoulos, Spiridon


occam is a high-level language which got constructs for generating explicitly concurrent processes which communicate using channels. In this paper we present our methodology for developing an optimising occam compiler which consist of a framework to represent concurrency and the semantic properties of an occam program that enables efficient process optimisations, and inter-procedural optimisations to be performed. Furthermore, we tackle the issue of retargeting the optimising occam compiler for different processors of the transputer family.
