Abstract / Description of output

We’ve spent much of our time over the last two years implementing a new compiler for the functional language Haskell [HPW91]. In this effort, we’ve been joined by Andy Gill, who has implemented a strictness analyser, Andre Santos, who has contributed a ‘simplifier’, and Patrick Sansom, who wrote garbage collectors for our runtime system.
