Towards Retargetable Compilers --- Feedback Directed Compilation Using Genetic Algorithms
- Full Paper(.ps version)
In this paper we discuss an approach to iterative feedback directed
compilation using Genetic Algorithms (GAs) and present an evaluation of the
independence of this compilation technique. Results are presented for the
of ADI, SHALLOW and TOMCATV benchmarks on an Philips TM1300 (VLIW),
UltraSPARC and Pentium-III architectures. The work presented in this paper
improves on our earlier research by i), evaluating architectural independence,
and, ii), extending the transformation set considered by the GA to include
loop unrolling, loop-fusion, loop-fission and padding.
