Factor/GSoC/2010/More advanced compiler optimizations
Factor has a fairly advanced optimizing compiler, but improvements can be made to it. The suggestions below are roughly in order of difficulty. This is an open-ended project, and it would be unreasonable to expect a student to complete all of them.
The LLVM documentation and source is a good reference for these optimizations:
Papers about global value numbering:
Benefit to student
The student learns about compilers.
Benefit to community
Nearly all Factor programs would become faster with these compiler optimizations.
