Ssa-Based Compiler Design (Hardcover)
This book provides readers with a single-source reference to static-single assignment
(SSA)-based compiler design. It is the first (and up to now only) book that covers
in a deep and comprehensive way how an optimizing compiler can be designed using
the SSA form. After introducing vanilla SSA and its main properties, the authors
describe several compiler analyses and optimizations under this form. They illustrate
how compiler design can be made simpler and more efficient, thanks to the SSA form.
This book also serves as a valuable text/reference for lecturers, making the teaching of
compilers simpler and more effective. Coverage also includes advanced topics, such as
code generation, aliasing, predication and more, making this book a valuable reference
for advanced students and practicing engineers.
