Fall 2017, 3 credits. Instructor: Tiark Rompf
Lecture and PSO times to be announced.
In a nutshell: The theory and practice of programming language translation, compilation, and run-time systems, organized around a significant programming project to build a compiler for a simple but non-trivial programming language. Modules, interfaces, tools. Data structures for tree languages. Lexical analysis, syntax analysis, abstract syntax. Symbol tables, semantic analysis. Translation, intermediate code, basic blocks, traces. Instruction selection, CISC and RISC machines. Liveness analysis, graph coloring register allocation. Supplemental material drawn from garbage collection, object-oriented languages, higher-order languages, dataflow analysis, optimization, polymorphism, scheduling and pipelining, memory hierarchies.
Grades: Final grades will be based on results for the midterm (20%) final (30%) project (40%) homeworks (10%)
