Hi,

Can you tell me a nice textbook that describes heuristic methods for

compiler optimization? I'm actually trying to build an optimizer for

arbitrarily-sized input syntax trees. I have several cost functions that

relate latency, perturbation, consistency, and frequency. I'm especially

interested in how to represent these costs in the intermediate

representation of the compiler while evaluating the alternative scenarios.

I think I understand the high level stuff, but a lower level description

of which data structs to use as well as how to develop and evaluate

different cost functions would really help.

Can you point me to any existing work? Thanks.

articles and conference papers. -John]
