I am no guru (actually I know nothing about OO lang compilation) but I
just came across a new book "The Compiler Design Handbook" (ed. Y N
Srikant & P. Shankar, CRC Press, 2003, ISBN 0-8493-1240-X) which has a
chapter "Optimizations for Object-Oriented Languges" written by
Andreas Krall of Technische Universitat Wien and Nigel Horspool of
University of Victory. It has sections on Fast-Type Inclusion Tets,
Devirtualization, and Escape Analysis, etc. It may be good
introductory stuff. It may also have good pointers to references.
Maybe you can go to these two authors' web sites to se if they have
other stuff.
[If people have read this or other textx and would like to send in
a mini-review, I'd be happy to add them to the FAQ. Someone pointed out
that all of the book reviews in the FAQ are for books over 10 years old.
