An optimising compiler for generated tiny virtual machines

Palmer, Doug, Sikka, Pavan, Valencia, Philip, & Corke, Peter (2005) An optimising compiler for generated tiny virtual machines. In The Second IEEE Workshop on Embedded Networked Sensors, 2005. EmNetS-II, IEEE, Sydney, Australia, pp. 161-162.


VMSCRIPT is a scripting language designed to allow small programs to be compiled for a range of generated tiny virtual machines, suitable for sensor network devices. The VMSCRIPT compiler is an optimising compiler designed to allow quick re-targeting, based on a template, code rewriting model. A compiler backend can be specified at the same time as a virtual machine, with the compiler reading the specification and using it as a code generator.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
