I'd really appreciate some information on how I approach the following
problems. Are there any books, papers, software tools available which
would help?

I want to develop a system whereby I read source code or parse-tree in
from disk, and produce subroutine-threaded code in memory. To
increase execution speed, I'd want to incrementally upgrade to native
code generation for common operators.

Platforms which I'd want to support would be Sun, HP, probably also
DEC Alpha and PC's. I'd be writing the software in C, and the code I
generate should be able to call C routines, and be called by C

The user should be able to interactively debug the system, possibly
even recompiling a portion of the design and continuing execution.

Priorities are:
        interactivity and fast edit-compile-debug loop
        execution speed (I've currently got an interpretted system, but
                                          it's not fast enough)
Memory usage is not so important.

I'd be very grateful for any references, tips or information.
