Automatic parallelization using binary rewriting

Abstract 

Binary rewriters that do not require relocation information and automatic parallelizers within binary rewriters are provided, as well as methods for performing binary rewriting and automatic parallelization. The method, in certain embodiments. includes disassembling a binary file and determining functions in the disassembled binary file. The method can further include rewriting the binary file without relying on relocation information or object files. Optionally, the method can further include performing automatic parallelization of the binary before rewriting the binary file.
