Model, Design, and Evaluation of a Compiler for a Parallel Processing Environment
November 1977 (vol. 3 no. 6)
pp. 394-405
J.-L. Baer, Department of Computer Science, University of Washington
The problem of designing compilers for a multiprocessing environment is approached. We show that by modeling an existing sequential compiler, we gain an understanding of the modifications necessary to transform the sequential structure into a pipeline of processes. The pipelined compiler is then evaluated through measurements and simulation. Properties of the model, a generalized Petri Net, are also discussed.
Index Terms:
Petri Nets, Design methodology, measurements and simulation, parallel compilation, parallel processing
