Affix grammars are used to describe the instruction set of a target architecture for purposes of compiler code generation. A code generator is obtained automatically for a compiler using attributed parsing techniques. A compiler built on this model can automatically perform most popular machine-dependent optimizations, including peephole optimizations. Code generators based on this model demonstrate <italic>retargetability</italic> for the VAX<supscrpt>1</supscrpt>-11, iAPX<supscrpt>2</supscrpt… CONTINUE READING
