The ideas and techniques in this book have been validated and implemented in the W2 compilers for the Warp machines. The original W2 compiler built for the first prototype of the Warp machine was modified and retargeted as the Warp architecture evolved. The compiler was first released in late 1985 for the prototype Warp machine. Large numbers of applications including robot navigation, low-level vision, signal processing and scientific computing have been developed using this compiler by early 1987 [3,4], The compiler has since been retargeted to the PC production machine and iWarp, the integrated Warp architecture. While the PC machine is similar to the first prototypes, the iWarp machine is significantly different. The different compilers contain different machine-dependent optimizations but they all use the same scheduler module.
