Offline Specialisation in Prolog Using a Hand-Written Compiler Generator

  title={Offline Specialisation in Prolog Using a Hand-Written Compiler Generator},
  author={Michael Leuschel and Jesper J\orgensen and Wim Vanhoof and Maurice Bruynooghe},
The so called “cogen approach” to program specialisation, writing a compiler generator instead of a specialiser, has been used with considerable success in partial evaluation of both functional and imperative languages. This paper demonstrates that the cogen approach is also applicable to the specialisation of logic programs (called partial deduction) and leads to effective specialisers. Moreover, using good binding-time annotations, the speed-ups of the specialised programs are comparable to… CONTINUE READING
