  • Secd: A silly implementation of the SECD machine
    4 projects | | 5 May 2023
    I've actually recently read "FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING: Application and Implementation", by Peter Henderson from 1980, which contains a description of the SECD machine and a compiler for a simple purely-functional Lisp dialect called Lispkit.

    This <> looks like a good repo if you want to know more, although I'm not related to it in any way.

    I can't say how it compares the book by Kogge mentioned in this post since I haven't read that, but I can say I think it's an excellent book and worth reading if you're interested in this kind of thing.
