Major Course Concepts:
Semantic Analysis -- Ch. 1-6 (C:PTT); Ch. 4 (EAC); Ch. 1-4, 7 (PLP)
Emphasis on Type Checking
Runtime Environment -- Ch. 7 (C:PTT); Ch. 5-7 (EAC); Ch. 3, 7-10 (PLP)
Emphasis on C/C++ and Java/C# runtime architectures and memory management
Code Generation -- Ch. 8-9 (C:PTT); Ch. 7, 11-13 (EAC); Ch. 5-6, 14 (PLP)
Code shape issues. Procedure call abstraction. OOP/polymorphism implementation.
Project target code is Sun SPARC assembly. Hence the subtitle: More Assembly Required.
Code Optimization/Improvement -- Ch. 9-10 (C:PTT); Ch. 8-10 (EAC); Ch. 15 (PLP)
Machine independent and machine dependent code improvements.
Local and global code improvements.
Programming Projects:
Reduced-C translator (defined subset of the C++ Programming Language)
Project 1 -- Static Semantic Analysis with emphasis on Static Type Checking/Error Reporting
Project 2 -- Code Generation (to SPARC Assembly) with some dynamic runtime checks
Most project details covered in Discussion Sections including starter code
We do run MOSS (Measure Of Software Similarity) - cheating will not be tolerated
