PolyOpt/C is a polyhedral loop optimization framework, integrated in the ROSE compiler. The main features are:

  • Automatic extraction of regions that can be optimized in the polyhedral model
  • Full support of PoCC (the Polyhedral Compiler Collection) analysis and optimizations:
    • Dependence analysis with Candl
    • Program transformations for tiling and parallelism with Pluto
    • Code generation with CLooG
    • Parametric tiling with PTile
  • Numerous under-the-hood functionalities and optimizations

Note, only a subset of C/C++ is currently supported by PolyOpt: see PolyOpt/Fortran for Fortran programs support.


  • 03/12/2012: Release of the 0.2.1 version of PolyOpt/C.
  • 01/23/2012: Pre-release of the 0.2.0 version of PolyOpt/C.

Please note that the following document is preliminary. The documentation will be improved soon. In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact the author for any question.


The installation of PolyOpt/C is packaged in an installer script install.sh. It assumes ROSE is built, and will download and install a local copy of PoCC.

$> tar xzf polyopt-c-0.2.1.tar.gz
$> cd polyopt-c-0.2.1
$> export ROSE_ROOT=/path/to/rose/install
$> export BOOST_ROOT=/path/to/boost/install
$> ./install.sh
$> export PATH=$PATH:`pwd`/src

For a test run of the compiler:

$> PolyOpt dgemm.c

To inspect the available options:

$> PolyOpt --polyopt-help
