Sac is a functional array processing language particularly designed with numerical applications in mind. In this field the runtime performance of programs critically depends on the efficient utilization of the memory hierarchy. Cache conflicts due to limited set associativity are one relevant source of inefficiency. This paper describes the realization of an optimization technique which aims at eliminating cache conflicts by adjusting the data layout of arrays to specific access patterns and… CONTINUE READING
