  • Haskell compiled onto LLVM increase performance?
    4 projects | | 2 Nov 2021
    Here the goal is to build a high level, easy to understand model for all GHC backend features. Validations is also required. Once we know the semantics of GHC primops and RTS features then it becomes possible to figure out how to compile Haskell programs to GRIN. I started the GHC-WPC project for this reason. GHC-WPC exports the STG intermediate representation for the whole Haskell program, and I wrote an STG interpreter from scratch in Haskell that can run any Haskell program. (i.e. GHC itself) The STG interpreter is the high level model for the GHC primop and RTS semantics. It implements all these in pure Haskell, it does not depend on GHC RTS at all.
  • Why is the debugger so bad in Haskell? (or is it just me)
    3 projects | | 19 Oct 2021
    I can easily debug any Haskell program with the external STG interpreter.
  • Haskell program inspector tooling development
    1 project | | 23 Jul 2021
    Hello, I'm using the external STG interpreter to observe the runtime behaviour of Haskell programs. Lately I've added an initial call-graph construction feature that I plan to refine further. Is there anyone who has dynamic analysis related research ambitions and wants to study Haskell program runtime behaviour in detail? If so then it would be great to talk.
  • What are you hyped about today?
    2 projects | | 15 May 2021
    I haven't gotten my hands dirty yet, but really excited hearing GHC-WPC is going on!
  • GHC Pluggable Backend?
    4 projects | | 4 May 2021
    Why didn't you mention GHC-WPC? It is also a backend sample. It exports enough information (STG + linker opts + c bits) to interpret the program or to generate a binary executable via the regular GHC codegen system.
  • Transpiling to GHC Core language
    4 projects | | 30 Apr 2021
    You could use the GHC codegen and RTS via the external STG IR.

    Remarks: 1. Strict functional languages can be expressed in STG without overhead, because STG has explicit liftedness control. In a strict language every data is unlifted or unboxed. 2. Supporting all GHC primops is not unrealistic. See the primop implementation in the external STG interpreter source code. Here is the implementation of the threading primops.
