oc-X: an Optimising Multiprocessor occam System for the PowerPC

Authors: Sheen, Tim, Allen, Alastair R., Ripke, Andreas, Woo, Stacy


The development of a PowerPC port of the KRoC (portable occam compiler) is described. As well as the basic port, a multiprocessor run time system provides services for user programs, including efficient occam channels between distributed processes, natural access to host file systems and TCP/IP network sockets. Optimization of target assembly code is discussed, with methods for removing the inefficiencies introduced by the KRoC translation process.
