Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if someone has some information to give me about
implementing a compiler that's able to split the compilation process
in parallel steps, to fully take advantage or multicore/multiprocessor
I don't have any knownledge about that and I didn't find any
interesting lecture, so any advice would be really appreciated.

[I suppose some of the optimization analysis might be amenable to working in parallel,
but the front end lexer and parser are pretty serial. I think you'll find that the
way people use multi-processor systems is by using tools like gmake that can run the
compilation steps for several modules at the same time. -John]
