Abstract -
Compiler construction primarily comprises of some standard phases such as lexical analysis, syntax analysis, semantic analysis, intermediate code generation, code optimization and target code generation but due to the improvement in computer architectural designs, there is a need to improve on the code size, instruction execution speed, etc. Hence, today better and more efficient compiler analysis and optimization techniques such as advanced dataflow analysis, leaf function optimization, cross-linking optimizations, etc. are adopted to meet with the latest trend in hardware technology and generate better target codes for recent machines.
