  • Patent number: 10552534
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention disclose a method, computer program product, and system for parsing a domain-specific language (DSL) statement. The method includes one or more processors accessing a DSL statement that includes contracted phrases. The method further includes one or more processors identifying one or more contracted phrases in the DSL statement utilizing an annotated domain vocabulary for a DSL associated with the DSL statement and grammar rules for the DSL.

  • Patent number: 10552128
    Abstract: Methods and computer-readable media are disclosed herein for generating asynchronous runtime compatible applications from non-asynchronous applications. In embodiments, source code for the application that is not compatible with asynchronous processing is examined. The source code is parsed in order to identify unsafe functions that will cause failures of the application when processed in an asynchronous runtime. The source code corresponding to those unsafe functions is modified by adding asynchronous functions and commands to the source code and restructuring the source code. The modified source code may then be provided to an asynchronous runtime environment as the application is now compatible with asynchronous processing.

  • Patent number: 10545740
    Abstract: An improved software optimization tool framework is provided that, when executed, creates software agents that attach themselves to all running instances of a user-specified application and/or process, be it in a single machine or across multiple machines (e.g. in a computer cluster). Once the software agents attach, for each attached application and/or process, the tool can be configured to capture the input and output data of specified target sections of code for the specified application or process. In an embodiment, a software programmer may want to optimize a specific target section of code that may comprise a single function or multiple functions or code portions. Based on pre-identified code sections, the tool can write captured input and output data into binary files, along with the target sections of code, and build an optimization framework around the input and output data, including the targeted sections of code.

  • Patent number: 10540194
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system includes a processor(s) obtaining, during runtime, from a compiler, two versions of a data parallel loop for an operation. The host computing system comprises includes a CPU and a GPU is accessible to the host. The processor(s) online profiles the two versions by asynchronously executing the first version, in a profile mode, with the GPU and executing the second version, in the profile mode, with the CPU. The processor(s) generates execution times for the first version and the second version. The processor(s) stores the executions times and performance data in a storage, where the performance data comprises a size of the data parallel loop for the operation. The processor(s) update a regression model(s) to predict performance numbers for a process of an unknown loop size. The processor(s) execute the operation with the CPU or the GPU based on the performance data.

  • Patent number: 10534587
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to deploying centralized design data in a development system. An exemplary system generally includes a server configured to perform the following steps. The server receives a style element and a reference name paired with the style element. The server then generates a visual definition comprising design data associated with the style element and paired with the reference name. The server then identifies a development environment for use with the visual definition and formats the visual definition into a local definition compatible with the development environment. Finally, the server transmits the local definition to a developer device associated with the development environment.

  • Patent number: 10528607
    Abstract: Various approaches for automating code completion are described herein. More particularly, approaches are provided that automatically generate coded commands of a coding language (i.e., code) that function and operate as intended by the user. As the user codes the commands, such approaches assist a user in various ways. For example, such automated assistance provides the user an understanding of various coding options available in the coding language. The assistance also enforces the proper employment of the available coding options, as well as provides an understanding of the functionality of the generated code. Automating code completion provides various benefits to the user, such as decreasing the time the user spends generating code, increasing the likelihood that the generated code functions and operates on a system as intended, and reducing the number of code versions required to be executed or compiled by the system.

  • Patent number: 10509635
    Abstract: Processor hardware detects when memory aliasing occurs, and assures proper operation of the code even in the presence of memory aliasing. The processor defines a special store instruction that is different from a regular store instruction. The special store instruction is used in regions of the computer program where memory aliasing may occur. Because the hardware can detect and correct for memory aliasing, this allows a compiler to make optimizations such as register promotion even in regions of the code where memory aliasing may occur.
