A phase of compilation in which object code is created.
The representation of the plan used by the optimizer is designed for efficient comparisons between competing best plans, whereas the representation of the plan used by the execution engine is designed for efficient execution. Code generation is the mechanism in query compilation that converts the optimizer best plan representation into the execution engine plan representation.
The phase of compilation which translates the source program into a semantically equivalent object program.
A clock that will put an identification time code onto the tape carrying picture and/or track information.
