Abstract

In this paper a model is proposed that allows describing operational semantics of machine instruction for a wide class of target architectures. The key feature of the model is that it is intended for reverse transformations as compared to the classical compilation way while at the same providing support for various optimizations. External specifications are used to describe target machines. A prototype interpretation subsystem implementation is also presented.
