Vectorizing & Optimizing compilers are dime a dozen these days, but
debuggers for these compilers with optimizations turned on are not
available (at least to my knowledge). It seems that one has to
"reverse-compile" the optimized code for source level debuggers. Are
there any reverse-compilers? Such compilers would also be helpful as
a tool to aid programmers in writing optimal code.
