Keywords: optimize, question

Can someone expereinced in building various optimization phases give me
pointers to all the optimization problems that are very important for
generating good code (for scalar, superscalar, and parallel machines)? Can
you please classify them as forward, backward, and/or bi-directional

I know sometimes a scalar optimization can hinder parallel optimization (I
recently read an excellent report by Wolfe on this topic). Recently
PLDI'92 proceeding has an interesting paper on solving flow analysis
problems for large programs. I am interested in knowing different problems
that are very important. Swartz (?) and Cocke book and Dragon book are a
good reference for many of the analysis. I feel these two books are not
the best ref. for recent results based on SSA-form and Sparse Eval. Graph
methods. Please also cite a good reference for solving the problem.

Also can someone give me reference for dataflow/optimization performed on
explicit parallel programs? Can we directly use traditional methods into
the parallel world.

(I will post the summary)

Thanks a lot
