## Haskell, Turned Up To Eleven

I was googling for deforestation haskell and came across the principal investigator's blog. From the paper:

Abstract. Haskell is a functional language, with features such as higher order functions and lazy evaluation, which allow succinct programs. These high-level features are difficult for fast execution, but GHC is a ma- ture and widely used optimising compiler. This paper presents a whole- program approach to optimisation, which produces speed improvements of between 10% and 60% when used with GHC, on eight benchmarks.

While nominally part of the YHC project, Haskell -011 is currently a Haskell to Haskell transformer that feeds GHC.

Authorities said... best leave it... unsolved.

### Make -03 Louder...

This one goes up to 11. Most Haskells only go up to -03...
