Currently, re-compiling a Chapel program would mean re-compiling the parts that haven’t changed, including the functions that haven’t been altered since the last compilation. The idea behind this project is to utilise the already existing information that compiler already has to speed up re-compilation. The main steps in the project would be to start away with restructuring the way currently elements with same name are distinguished. The main goal would be to create a code cache which can be stored in as a part of the object file. We would like to utilise our code cache to avoid re-instantiation and recompilation for functions that are already present as a part of the code cache, and finally we want to be able to re-link the correct functions and symbols from the cache during the building of the executable.
