Abstract
EMPLOYED TO DATE FOR DEVELOPING APPLICATION SOFT- WARE FOR DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING CONFIGURATIONS. THE BASIC CONCEPT IS TO DERIVE A COMPUTATIONAL DATA FLOW GRAPH FROM THE INITIAL PRODCEDURAL CODE PRODUCED BY THE PROGRAMMER. THE DATA FLOW GRAPH IS YHEN ANALYZED FOR INHERENT PARALLELISM AND POTENTIAL PIPELINING AND MAPPED INTO THE SPECIFIED CONFIGURATION OF DISTRIBUTED PROCESSORS. THE TECHNICAL APPROACH OFFERED HERE IS TO PERFORM THE TRANSLATION AND MAPPING OF THE PROCEDURAL FORM AUTOMATICALLY THROUGH EXTENSION AND MODIFICATION OF EXISTING COMPILER TECHNOLOGY. THE PHASE I EFFORT PROPOSED HERE WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THIS CONCEPT, FOR A PLANNED PHASE II DEVELOPMENT OF A PROTOTYPE COMPILER. SPECIFIC TASKS INVOLVE SELECTING A LANGUAGE SET, DEFINING A CANDIDATE PROCESSING ARCHITECTURE, DEVELOPMENT OF AN ALGORITHM FOR DERIVING FLOW GRAPHS, SYNTHESIS OF A REALTIME FORM, AND, FINALLY, A FEASIBILITY DEMONSTRATION OF THE CONCEPT.
