Incremental Compilation and its Implementation in the PECAN Programming Environment Generator: Honours thesis
Australian National Univ., Nov 16, 1987 - 154 pages
The methodology and developmental history of incremental compilation is discussed. The implementation of incremental compilation in the PECAN programming environment generator is discussed in detail. The PECAN environment generated for Pascal has been modified to support procedure-by-procedure compilation, and complete (traditional) compilation. The time efficiency of these compilation methods is compared with that of incremental compilation.
