Motions and actions items with name and due date

This is US Patent 7,100,164, issued August 29, 2006; filed January 6, 2000. [http://www1.cs.columbia.edu/~sedwards/papers/patent7100164.pdf "Method & Apparatus for Converting a Concurrent Control Flow Graph into a Sequential Control Flow Graph."]

It covers more-or-less the compilation technique I developed for the Synopsys compiler, which is also described in Stephen A. Edwards. [http://www1.cs.columbia.edu/~sedwards/papers/edwards2002esterel.pdf An Esterel compiler for large control-dominated systems]. IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems 21(2), February 2002.

It describes a particular technique for generating C code from Esterel, but certainly not the only one.

  • Add a blackboard for discussion (SD/GB)
