Dennis Jack B: Method and product involving translation and execution of programs by automatic partitioning and data structure allocation. Dataflow Computer Corporation, ALTMAN Gerald, July 14, 1988: WO/1988/005191

A set of source program modules are translated into machine code blocks. The original or intermediate source code is processed into a program description tree (152) having program description parameters. This tree corresponds to a hierarchical set of data structure definitions (136, 138). The progra ...
