Eli: A Complete, Flexible Compiler Construction System


Eli integrates off-the-shelf tools and libraries
with specialized language processors to provide a system
for generating complete compilers quickly and reliably.
Its aim is to simplify the development of new special-purpose languages,
implementation of existing languages on new hardware and
extension of the constructs and features of existing languages.
This paper discusses the model of compiler construction upon which
Eli is based, the flexible structure that allows the system to evolve
gracefully as advances are made in tools and algorithms, and the
experience we have gained in using Eli for a variety of compiler
development tasks.
