Interactive Compilation Interface

The Interactive Compilation Interface (or ‘ICI’ for short) is a plugin system with a high-level compiler-independent and low-level compiler-dependent API to transform current compilers into collaborative open modular interactive toolsets. The ICI framework acts as a “middleware” interface between the compiler and the user-definable plugins. It opens up and reuses the production-quality compiler infrastructure to enable program analysis and instrumentation, fine-grain program optimizations, simple prototyping of new development and research ideas while avoiding building new compilation tools from scratch. For example, it is used in MILEPOST GCC to automate compiler and architecture design and program optimizations based on statistical analysis and machine learning. It should enable universal self-tuning compilers adaptable to heterogeneous, reconfigurable, multi-core architectures ranging from supercomputers to embedded systems.
