Abstract

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. Visualization allows to understand and to improve the behavior of the algorithms of the compiler phases. 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.
