Considering the good results of previous work, we decided to implement a system that automatically analyzes a program and applies some transformation in order to improve locality of reference.
In order to decide which transformation we apply, it was chosen a metric for locality of reference, the reference window [EISE90].
Consequently, it is important that the memory references performed during the execution of these programs have good locality of reference.
Also, if there is to be any hope for effective use of prepaging, we need locality of reference over a distance that spans several pages.
