tool: Stanford Base SUIF Compiler Package (``basesuif'')


Language:
C, Fortran, SUIF
Version:
1.1.2
Parts:
compiler(->C,->SUIF), run-time, documentation, examples
Author:
"Stanford Compiler Group" <suif@suif.stanford.edu>
Location:
ftp://ftp-suif.stanford.edu/pub/suif/basesuif-1.1.2.tar.gz http://www-suif.Stanford.EDU
Description:
SUIF is a framework for building large, complex compilers, targeted particular toward research in compiler algorithms. This package is the core of the system. It contains a kernel, which supports the Stanford University Intermediate Format (file I/O, manipulation, etc.), and a toolkit consisting of passes and libraries for program transformation.
Conformance:
C front end, C back end ANSI-C, FORTRAN front end mostly f77, defining implementation of SUIF IR
Reference:
Wide range of published papers available from web site
Bugs:
suif-bugs@suif.Stanford.EDU mailing list (more than 100 subscribers to this mailing list, including authors)
Restriction:
Free for any use, commercial or non-commercial, only requires copyright notice be preserved; currently used in commercial products
Requires:
Modern C++ compiler, such as GNU g++ 2.7.2.1, GNU make
Ports:
Ultrix/DECstation, SunOS/SPARC, Solaris/SPARC/x86, Irix/SGI-Mips, Linux/x86, OSF/DECAlpha,
  • many more UNIX systems; partial ports to Visual C++ under NT and to Power Macintosh
Portability:
Very system independent, but makefiles need to be replaced for non-UNIX systems if GNU make isn't used
Status:
Very active and growing quickly, with Java and C++ front-ends, connections from DEC Fortran, gcc, and g++ front-ends and to gcc's RTL back-ends, and new code generators for many systems funded and underway, all to be made available publicly
Discussion:
Several mailing lists, see http://www-suif.stanford.edu
Help:
Several mailing lists, more than 200 active users
Support:
No ``official'' support, but mailing lists usually provide support to any who ask
Announcements:
suif-announce@suif.Stanford.EDU mailing list (see web site)
