According to the responses I have received, I have the following
DFA algorithm how many use it
interval * 1
sparse DF ** 2
SSA *** 1
iterative + structural 1
* it was not indicated that either Allen-Cocke or Tarjan interval
analysis was used.
** sparse data flow evaluation technique by Choi, Cytron and Ferrante.
*** SSA: static single assigement (which is more a program
representation than a data flow analysis algorithm)
Since most responses were from the academia, I am wondering what
algorithms are frequently used in production compilers.
