Open source compilers[edit]

Production quality, open source compilers.

Research compilers[edit]

Research compilers are mostly not robust or complete enough to handle real, large applications. They are used mostly for fast prototyping new language features and new optimizations in research areas.

  • Open64: one of the most popular research compilers today, many branches exist. Here is a list of research papers from the CGO 2009. (Open64 merges the open source changes from the PathScale compiler mentioned.)
  • ROSE compiler framework: an open source compiler framework to generate source-to-source analyzers and translators for C/C++ and Fortran, developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
  • Polaris compiler for Fortran
    • Cetus for C/C++, successor of Polaris compiler
  • MILEPOST GCC: interactive plugin-based open-source research compiler that combines the strength of GCC and the flexibility of the common Interactive Compilation Interface that transforms production compilers into interactive research toolsets.
  • Interactive Compilation Interface - a plugin system with high-level API to transform production-quality compilers such as GCC into powerful and stable research infrastructure while avoiding developing new research compilers from scratch.
  • SUIF: inactive since 2001
    • MACHINE SUIF a branch focusing on machine-specific analyses and optimizations
  • PIPS: a source-to-source compiler framework with a Fortran 77, Fortran 95 and C front-end, focussing on advanced analyses and transformations.
  • OpenIMPACT Compiler
  • Phoenix optimization and analysis framework by Microsoft
  • Very Portable Optimizer (VPO) from the University of Virginia
  • COINS compiler infrastructure
  • Trimaran for research in instruction-level parallelism
  • Parafrase-2 Inactive. It is a source-to-source vectorizing/parallelizing compiler, with Fortran and C front-ends.
    • The PARADIGM compiler. Derived from Parafrase-2, it is a source-to-source research compiler for distributed-memory multicomputers for Fortran 77 and HPF.
  • MLton standard ML compiler (SML compiler)
  • Jikes Research Virtual machine (Jikes RVM): a research virtual machine for Java that uses two just-in-time compilers (a non-optimizing and an optimizing one)
  • Soot: a Java Optimization framework
  • The Scale compiler
  • HotpathVM: a Java virtual machine using a trace-based just-in-time compiler
  • ILDJIT: a compilation framework that targets the CIL bytecode that includes both static and dynamic compilers. ILDJIT provides a plugin-based framework for static, as well as dynamic tasks like code translations, code analysis, code optimizations, runtime instrumentation and memory management. Its plugin-based framework allows users to easily customize execution both at installation time, as well as at run-time (by dynamically loading and unloading plugins without perturbing execution). ILDJIT thus enables efficient co-design research at the architectural-boundary. Moreover, its multi-threaded design allows novel introspection of parallel compilation strategies to reduce overheads and dynamically optimize running code on today's x86 multi-core systems.
