Two questions:

1. Is there a survey of the various Code Optimizations that are
      done at the IR level and beyond, in today's optimizing
      compilers ? Ofcourse, the dragon book does give good
      information about quite a few of them. I am looking for the
      more recent and (hopefully) practical code optimizations as

2. The classical optimizations such as dead code elimination,
      jump elimination, common subexpression evaluation and so on,
      *seem* adhoc ( given my very limited comprehension). Has there
      been any effort to provide some sort of a frame-work to these
      optimizations ?

I request the knowledgeable readers of this newsgroup to kindly
"point me to the pointers" from where I can get the above

Thanks in advance.
