IBB source-to-source xfor compiler

Participants : Imen Fassi, Philippe Clauss, Cédric Bastoul.

Imen Fassi has developped a source-to-source xfor compiler called IBB (Iterate-But-Better) which is automatically translating any C source code containing xfor-loops into an equivalent source code where xfor-loops have been transformed into equivalent for-loops. The polyhedral code generator CLooG [27] is used to generate the corresponding code. The IBB compiler has been improved in some aspects in 2014: loop bounds can now be min and max functions, IBB uses the OpenScop format to encode statements and iteration domains.

The xfor structure is also currently incorporated in the polyhedral parser Clan ( ), opening the door of xfor usage to polyhedral compilation tools. Additionally, an xfor programming wizard is currently being developed, providing automatic dependence analysis and code verification to users, thanks to the dependence analyzer Candl ( ).
