This message is to announce the release of the SPAM Compiler, which is
a retargetable optimizing compiler for embedded fixed- point DSP
processors. SPAM is built on top of the SUIF Compiler, which serves
as the "front and middle"-end. The back-end of the SPAM Compiler
consists of two components. The first component is a set of data
structures that store the various representations of the source
program (e.g. calling graph, control-flow graphs, expression DAGs).
The second component is a suite of retargetable algorithms that
perform code generation and machine-dependent code optimization. The
SPAM Compiler is available at the URL In order to download the
