If we do a comparative study between following IRs:

  C) GIMPLE(gcc- tree)

Then please comment on the above IRs considering following points:

  1.Source Code Information (contain only
necessary source code information)

  2.Optional information for Optimization (Can be segregated from
source code information)

  3.Optimizations: (Easy for Optimizer to transform)

  4.Extendibility (Vendor specific features
such as compiler directives)

  5.Portability: (Should be capable to support wide
variety of hardware architecture.)
                                                                              For example (Vectorization

  6.Convertibility: (Developing IL translators should be
of manageable complexity.)
