The source structure of a program written in a high level language and the structure of its target code are subject to different kinds of requirements. While the decomposition into modules and algorithms should be exclusively determined by logical considerations, the decomposition into code segments and routines has to suit the execution relations between these objects, and is subject to time and space tradeoffs.

This paper describes the concept of separate and integral subsystem compilation and its implementation in a multi-user software engineering environment.
