Abstract
Our research investigates the infrastructure of a retargetable and domain-general C code generator for actor models. Experiments are performed using the code generator to program different hardware and software platforms, including micro-controllers (Atmega128, Luminary), middlewares (MPI, OpenRTOS), and threading packages (P-thread, Win32). The main mission is to carefully transform and compile models specified in formal models of computation (MoCs). The code generator is conceptually partitioned into two parts: front-end and back-end. It is designed to be compositional extensible by using code template components (adaptors) that can be tested and developed separately. Model-based code generation (using C as the target language) differs from traditional compiler back-end in that software libraries and API’s are also considered targetable. The back-end research focuses on extending retargetability by investigating reuse patterns and target descriptions. The front-end leverages work from multimodeling and is under current research which attempts to extend the code generator to support multiple MoCs and heterogeneous models.
