Abstract:

Often a computer architecture is designed and implemented without determining whether is associated compilers will actually use all of thearchitecture' features. A more effective machine can result when the interactions between an architecture and a compiler are addressed. This paper presents an environment that integrates the tasks of translating a source program to machine instructions for a proposed architecture, imitating the execution of these instructions and collecting measurements. The environment, which is easily retargeted and quickly collects detailed measurements, facilitates experimentation with a proposed architecture and a compiler.
