Dynamic programming languages are becoming increasingly popular, and this motivates the need for just-in-time (JIT) compilation to close the productivity/performance gap. Unfortunately, developing custom JIT-optimizing virtual machines (VMs) requires significant effort. Recent work has shown the promiseofmeta-JITframeworks, which abstract the language definition from the VM internals. Meta-JITs can enable automatic generation of high-performance JIT-optimizing VMs from high-level language… CONTINUE READING
