SGI Pro64 Open Source Compiler Infrastructure
Guang R. Gao
University of Delaware
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Compiler researchers, developers, faculty, and students.
40% Introductory | 40% Intermediate | 20% Advanced
We present an overview of the Pro64 compiler infrastructure made available as open source software by SGI in May 2000. We will address questions that must be answered by compiler researchers and students in deciding on a compiler infrastructure to be used in their work, or by others who must use compilers, especially for development of high-performance parallel software. The tutorial will provide a general overview of the Pro64 infrastructure, in particular the optimization strategy and methods. We will emphasize loop nest optimization and parallelization, but will also address traditional global optimization and code generation.
We illustrate our experience in using the infrastructure for compiler research.
The lecturers will include experts from both academia and industry (SGI). Please see
for an introduction.
