For those interested in compilers, particularly GCC, or are interested in some technical slides to look over this weekend, the presentations from the 2010 GNU Compiler Collection Summit are now available online.
Some of the potential papers/slides that may be of interest are on GRAPHITE-OpenCL to generate OpenCL code from parallel loops, optimizing real-world applications with GCC LTO, real-time debugging with GDB trace-points, improving GCC's auto-vectorization, the Google Go front-end to GCC
, enabling more optimizations in GCC Graphite, GNU Tools for ARM, and the issues of supporting GCC on Microsoft Windows.
The papers and slides from the 2010 GCC Summit are available for download from the GCC Wiki
. The 2010 GCC Summit was held earlier this week (25 to 27 of October) in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
In news related to GCC, the InterAspect project was publicly released yesterday. InterAspect is an academic project for providing a framework to create GCC compiler plug-ins easier by not requiring plug-in developers to have extensive knowledge of the inner-workings of the GNU compiler. Besides being a university project, this GCC framework is also backed by the NASA JPL Laboratory for Reliable Software. This InterAspect framework for GCC is released under the GPLv3 and will be presented next week at the International Conference on Runtime Verification 2010.
For additional details and to download InterAspect, check out the project web-site
. An announcement was also made on the GCC mailing list
