Subject: Reference paper for Software Prefetching in GCC

Hello Everyone,

I am Utpal, a graduate student at IIT Hyderabad, India. I have been studying software prefetching implementation in GCC as part of my Compilers Optimization course.

>>However, I could not find any reference paper that has been used to implement -fprefetch-loop-arrays pass in GCC.

Please find the following papers used as a references.

Compiler-Based Prefetching for Recursive Data Structures, Chi-Keung Luk and Todd C. Mowry, linked from That location also has links to several other papers about data prefetch by Todd C. Mowry

An Overview of the Intel IA-64 Compiler, Carole Dulong, Rakesh Krishnaiyer, Dattatraya Kulkarni, Daniel Lavery, Wei Li, John Ng, and David Sehr, all of Microcomputer Software Laboratory, Intel Corporation, Intel Technology Journal, 4th quarter 1999;

UltraSPARC[tm]-II Enhancements: Support for Software Controlled Prefetch, Sun Microsystems, July 1996, WPR-0002

Thanks & Regards
