ViC*: A Compiler for Virtual-Memory C*
Alex Colvin, Thomas H. Cormen
Dartmouth PCS-TR97-323

Abstract: This paper describes the functionality of ViC*, a compiler for a variant of the data-parallel language C* with support for out-of-core data. The compiler translates C* programs with shapes declared outofcore, which describe parallel data stored on disk. The compiler output is a SPMD-style program in standard C with I/O and library calls added to efficiently access out-of-core parallel data. The ViC* compiler also applies several program transformations to improve out-of-core data layout and access.

Note: Revised version appeared in the Proceedings of the Third International Workshop on High-Level Parallel Programming Models and Supportive Environments (HIPS '98), March 1998, pages 23-33.
