compilers
outline

A Quick Compiler that does simple optimization and some use of
registers, possibly modeled after existing dynamic code generation systems
such as that of QEMU or valgrind. The point of such a compiler is to exploit
"low hanging fruit". Previous work (10 years ago) took a somewhat different
approach, but suggested that a compiler that applied a simple approach to
register allocation and a some simple optimizations reduced total execution
over the current Baseline or Baseline+Opt compilation systems.

QEMU and valgrind are good starting points for developing the
compilation / optimization strategy.
