Building the fastest Lua interpreter.. automatically!
Quote:
We employ an unique approach where the interpreter and the JIT tiers are automatically generated from a semantical description of the bytecodes. We believe this will ultimately result in less engineering cost, cleaner and more maintainable code, as well as the generalizability to support other languages.

Part 2: Building a baseline JIT for Lua automatically
Quote:
It is important to note that the baseline JIT is generated from the same bytecode semantic description that Deegen uses to generate the interpreter. Therefore, for a language implementer, the baseline JIT comes for free:
  • No need to have any assembly knowledge.
  • No need to manually engineer the JIT.
  • No need to manually keep the JIT updated with new language features.
Because Deegen does all the work automatically!
