Optimizing Quil compiler (for quantum computing)

Quilc is an advanced optimizing compiler for the quantum instruction language Quil.

Quil is the quantum instruction language, originally developed at Rigetti Computing. In Quil quantum algorithms are expressed using Quil’s standard gates and instructions. One can also use Quil’s DEFGATE to define new non-standard gates, and DEFCIRCUIT to build a named circuit that can be referenced elsewhere in Quil code analogous to a function in most other programming languages.
