Improving system performance increasingly depends on exploiting microprocessor parallelism, yet mainstream compilers still don't parallelize code automatically. Helix automatically parallelizes general-purpose programs without requiring any special hardware; avoids slowing down compiled programs, making it a suitable candidate for mainstream compilers; and outperforms the most similar historical technique that has been implemented in production compilers.
