This course is intended to give the students a thorough knowledge of compiler design techniques and tools for modern computer programming languages. This course covers advanced topics such as data-flow analysis and control-flow analysis, code generation and program analysis and optimization.
- Front End: Lexical Analysis and Parsing . Generating an Abstract Syntax Tree (no homework)
- Semantic Analysis and Syntax-Directed Translation: Type Checking. (HW #1)
- Intermediate Code Generation
- Run-Time Environments
- Register Allocation and Instruction Scheduling
- Optimization and Control-Flow Analysis
Students should be familiar with the concepts in theory of computation (e.g., regular sets and context-free grammars); design and analysis of algorithms (e.g., asymptotic complexity, divide and conquer and dynamic-programming techniques); and have strong programming skills using dynamic, pointer-based data structures either in C or C++ programming languages. Students should also be familiar with basic concepts of imperative programming languages such as scoping rules, parameter passing disciplines and recursion.
