Building an Optimizing Compiler

by Robert Morgan

Building an Optimizing Compiler provides a high-level design for a thorough optimizer, code generator, scheduler, and register allocator for a generic modern RISC processor. In the process it addresses the small issues that have a large impact on the implementation. The book approaches this subject from a practical viewpoint. Theory is introduced where intuitive arguments are insufficient; however, the theory is described in practical terms.
