Abstract: Affix grammars are used to describe the instruction-set of a
target architecture for purposes of compiler code generation.
A code generator is obtained automatically for a compiler
using attributed parsing techniques. A compiler built on this
model can automatically perform most popular
machine-dependent optimizations, including peephole
optimizations. Implementations of code generators based on
this model exist for the VAX-11, iAPX-86, Z -8000, PDP-ll and
