             Adventures in Concurrent Compilation

      Time: Friday, May 26, 1989, 12:05 --- Place: GB 220

       We discuss the design of a concurrent Modula-2+ compiler
  developed  as  part  of  the  Concurrent Compiler Development
  Project. We describe how the compiler exploits parallelism in
  compilation  by  compiling  the  scopes of the source program
  concurrently. Each  such  "instance"  of  the  compiler  also
  exploits  whatever  parallelism  exists in the compilation of
  its scope in a manner similar to a pipelined compiler.
      As  the  degree  of  parallelism  in  such  a  design  is
  dependent  on  the  size  of the source program, the compiler
  must carefully manage the number of concurrent activities  so
  as  not  to overwhelm the machine resources. These techniques
  are described.
