I am sorry for jumping in on this so late. Yes, there is a SUIF system
developed by Prof. Monica Lam's group. In fact, we were using it this
quarter to test and implement various optimization passes. The first
thing we had to do was to generate basic blocks and the flowgraph for
the procedure (program).

If I am not mistaken, the code for SUIF is publicly available. As for
converting from C++ to C, someone more knowledge on the net has to
field that one.

In fact, I have the code (written in C++) which identifies the basic
blocks and constructs the flowgraph structure provided the input is in
the SUIF form. The SUIF form itself is a three-address format
imitating many RISC and CISC'y kind of operands.

Send me an e-mail and if you are interested. I will put you in touch
with more knowledgeable people ...
