Various powerful polyhedral techniques exist to optimize computation intensive programs effectively. Applying these techniques on any non-trivial program is still surprisingly difficult and often not as effective as expected. Most polyhedral tools are limited to a specific programming language. Even for this language, relevant code needs to match specific syntax that rarely appears in existing code. It is therefore hard or even impossible to process existing programs automatically. In addition, most tools target C or OpenCL code, which prevents effective communication with compiler internal optimizers. As a result target architecture specific optimizations are either little effective or not approached at all.
