Transfer of programs from development to runtime environments

Part I Computer Science


The transfer of programs from development systems to efficient run-time environments is generally considered as a compilation process possibly followed by an optimization phase. This order excludes most possibilities to make optimizations on the source language level. This paper describes an alternative transfer method where user interaction is done on a user oriented level in order to support the optimization process. Experiments show that the efficiency gain is considerable.
