Little attention has been given to language support for block-based compression algorithms, despite their high implementation complexity. Current implementations have to deal with both the intricacies of the algorithm itself, as well as the low-level optimizations necessary for generating fast code. However, many block-based compression algorithms share a common structure in terms of their data representations, data partitioning operations, and data traversals.
In this work, we propose a set of high-level language abstractions that can succinctly capture this structure.
These abstractions provide the building blocks for the development of a domain-specific language and an associated optimizing compiler. With compression-specific language support, researchers can focus on algorithm development rather than the low-level implementation details.
