The CLAX compiler was developed in the project COMPARE as reconfigurable demonstration compiler. Its various optimization phases are visualized and animated by the graph layout tool VCG.

We present a tour through the CLAX compiler and demonstrate the newest extensions of the VCG tool, that help to explore large compiler data structures.
