Supercompilation by evaluation

By Max Bolingbroke and Simon Peyton Jones


Supercompilation is a technique due to Turchin [1] which allows for the construction of program optimisers that are both simple and extremely powerful. Supercompilation is capable of achieving transformations such as deforestation [2], function specialisation and constructor specialisation [3]. Inspired by Mitchell’s promising results [4], we show how the call-by-need supercompilation algorithm can be recast to be based explicitly on an evaluator, and in the process extend it to deal with recursive let expressions
