Program-specific or function-specific optimization phase sequences are universally accepted to achieve better overall performance than any fixed optimization phase ordering. A number of heuristic phase order space search algorithms have been devised to find customized phase orderings achieving high performance for each function. However, to make this approach of iterative compilation more widely accepted and deployed in mainstream compilers, it is essential to modify existing algorithms, or… CONTINUE READING
