An original system to perform an automatic analysis of assembled programs is presented. Executable programs are analyzed from the description of the machine on which they run and are translated into an intermediate language taking into account the particularities of the considered machine. The system was primarily designed as the first step of a project for transferring programs from one machine to another. The final goal of the project is to achieve an even utilization of computer resources for a real-time controlled robot, on the basis of partially dedicated processors. At the present time, the actual implementation provides a tool for studying the theoretical aspect of machine-level program analysis. Nevertheless, other applications can be found in program debugging and assembled program validation.
