Kildall has stated a general data flow analysis algorithm which has been applied to several forms of classical global program optimization. The algorithm operates upon the flow graph of a program, where the nodes correspond to basic blocks and the edges represent possible program control flows. In order to test the effectiveness of this algorithm, a general purpose optimizing module was written in XPL which analyzes ALGOL-E programs for constant computations, common subexpressions and simplifying formal identities. Various node selection algorithms were investigated with respect to the convergence rate of the algorithm.
