Software tools

TAFFO Tuning Assistant for Floating point to Fixed point Optimization
This toolchain provides user-driven precision tuning capabilities by exploiting integer computation instead of floating point whenever possible. It is composed by a set of plugins for the LLVM compiler infrastructure. It does NOT require any customization of the compiler.
Check it out on github.

This library enables runtime compilation of source code and dynamic loading of a specified C/C++ function. It also provides support for versioning of the compiled functions.
