Hi,

As part of my Masters I am attempting to critique the paper "Compiler
Transformations for High Performance Computing" by Bacon et al by
comparing the transformations given in that paper to those found
currently in GCC. I was wondering if loop normalization is used in
GCC, as there is no mention of it here:

http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Optimize-Options.html

and although there was a patch a long time ago:

http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2003-01/msg00947.html

I cant seem to find it in a more recent version. Any help you can
offer is much appreciated.

Yours,
Rob Quill.
