One of the concerns of the compiler writer is the quality of object programs produced by the compiler, and in particular their performance at execution time. A survey of methods for measuring this performance, and experiments with the use of those methods, is presented. We examine two general categories of evaluation comparative evaluation, in which benchmark programs are run on groups of language systems and analytic evaluation, in which a single system is measured in terms determined by its own structure. Besides surveying the results of various evaluation experiments, we present in detail the results of a series of experiments on a particular language system PDP11 ALGOL 68-S.
