A machine independent LISP compiler and its implications for ideal hardware
1978 (English)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
A LISP compiler is constructed without any a priori assumptions about the target machine. In parallel with the compiler a LISP oriented instruction set is developed. The instruction set can be seen as either an intermediarylanguage for a traditional computer oras the instruction set for a special purpose LISP machine. The code produced by the compiler is evaluated with regard to its static and dynamic properties. Finally some architectural aspects on LISP oriented hardware are discussed. The notion of segments with different word lengths, under program control, is developed and a proposed implementation of this is described.
