Tools For Automatic Compiler Generation (Panel Discussion)

Abstract

The PQCC (Production-Quality Compiler-Compiler) project is an effort aimed at the automatic construction of production quality, optimizing compilers. The goal is, with no more than a few man-months effort, to produce a compiler that is competitive in every respect with the best hand-crafted compilers available today. Input to this automatic construction process is formal descriptions of the source language and target machine.
