Download A Retargetable C Compiler Design and Implementation by David R. Hanson PDF

By David R. Hanson

This new textual content examines the layout and implementation of Icc, a production-quality, retargetable compiler, designed at AT&T Bell Laboratories and Princeton collage for the ANSI interval. The authors' leading edge method - a "literate software" that intermingles the textual content with the resource code - offers a close journey of the code that explains the implementation and layout judgements mirrored within the software program. And whereas such a lot books describe toy compilers or specialize in remoted items of code, the authors have made on hand the complete resource code for a true compiler. established as a self-study advisor that describes the real-world tradeoffs encountered in development a production-quality compiler, A Retargetable C Compiler is usually important to people who paintings in program components utilizing or growing language-based instruments and strategies. beneficial properties: discusses the implementation and layout tradeoffs made whereas developing a true ANSI C compiler, illustrating the interplay among thought and perform; covers compiler concept basically as had to comprehend the implementation of Icc, focusing in its place on sensible, utilized concerns; encourages a deeper figuring out of programming in C, by means of delivering C programmers with a journey of the language from the point of view of compiler authors; comprises insurance of code turbines for the MIPS R3000, SPARC, and Intel 386 and its successors; and offers entry to the complete resource code for the Icc compiler, the 3 again ends, and the code-generator generator, both on disk or through FTP.

Example text

The use of si zeof *p where p is a pointer works for any pointer type. Alternatives that depend on the pointer's referent type are prone to error when the code is changed. For example, p = allocate(sizeof (struct T), a); is correct only if p really is a pointer to a st ruct T. If p is changed to a pointer to another structure and the call isn't updated, a 11 ocate may allocate too much or too little space. The former is merely inefficient, but the latter is disasterous. c exported macros}= allocate 26 deallocate 28 newarray 28 #define NEW(p,a) ((p) = allocate(sizeof *(p), (a))) #define NEWO(p,a) memset(NEW((p),(a)), 0, sizeof *(p)) a11 ocate and thus NEW return a pointer to uninitialized space on the grounds that most clients will initialize it immediately.

A block is deallocated by adding it to the head of its list. Requests for sizes other than one of the N favored sizes are handled with other algorithms, such as first fit (Knuth l 973a). One of the advantages of 1cc's arena-based algorithm is that allocations don't have to be paired with individual deallocations; a single deallocation frees the memory acquired by many allocations, which simplifies programming. Garbage collection takes this advantage one step further. A garbage collector periodically finds all of the storage that is in use and frees the rest.

1cc can, however, be compiled by other compilers for which this assumption is false, that is, for which pointers are larger than integers. Using NULL in calls avoids these kinds of errors in environments where pointers are wider than unsigned integers, and thus permits 1cc to be compiled and used as a cross-compiler in such environments. h exported macros)+= #define NELEMS(a) ((int)(sizeof (a)/sizeof ((a)[O]))) #define roundup(x,n) (((x)+((n)-l))&(-((n)-1))) .... 18 97 .... NELEMS(a) gives the number of elements in array a, and roundup(x,n) returns x rounded up to the next multiple of n, which must be a power of two.
