People interested in using GCC for
their research as well as people interested in contributing to GCC will
benefit from this tutorial. It is expected that this tutorial will
bring down their ramp up period into GCC from several frustrating
months to a few stimulating weeks. This tutorial will also be useful
for people who are interested in relating class room concepts of
compilation to a large scale practical compiler which is widely used.
This tutorial is a lecture based tutorial and hence it is not necessary for the audience to bring a laptop. Soft copies of the slides will be made available on this page well in advance.
Uday P. Khedker (http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/~uday).
Uday Khedker finished Ph.D. in Computer
Science & Engg. From IIT Bombay in 1995 and taught at the
Department of Computer Science at Pune University from 1984 to 2001.
Since then, he is with IIT Bombay where currently he is Professor of
Computer Science & Engg.
His areas of interest are Programming Languages and Compilers and he specialises in data flow analysis and its applications to code optimization. A recent research thrust involves cleaning up the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) to simplify its deployment, retargetting, and enhancements. Other goals include increasing its trustworthiness as well as the quality of generated code. He has published papers in leading journals and conferences, has contributed chapters in Compiler Design Handbook and has authored a book titled “Data Flow Analysis: Theory and Practice”. He has also worked very closely with the industry.
