A compendium of compilation processes and compiler organization relating to program optimization is presented, where evaluations of underlying costbenefit relationships is the focus for this study. To obtain this goal a compiler model to relate the optimization algorithms to the compilation process is introduced. From this a discussion of general optimization philosophy leading to descriptions, analyses, and reviews of the most significant optimization algorithms is made the benefits of these algorithms are considered, and recommendations for future measurements are proposed.
