The development of portable and fault-tolerant software, in particular for parallel and distributed systems, continues to be a challenge. This article describes a new approach to solking this problem by means of portable checkpoints and automatic code generation for saving and recovering from portable checkpoints on binary incompatible machines. The development of the prototype compiler porch is part of an ongoing research effort to explore the limits of sorce-to-source compilation to this end.
