Combinator reduction applications?
I am studying combinator graph reduction techniques for implementing
functional programming languages. My question is, if very fast
implementations became available, what applications would they find?
-- What applications for functional programming languages
-- What applications for combinator graph reduction in general
If possible, estimate the performance level on a workstation platform
required to make your favorite application run reasonably fast to the
nearest order of magnitude:
-- 10,000 reduction applications per second (MIRANDA speed)
-- 100,000 reduction applications per second (SKIM, NORMA, special-purpose
hardware type speeds)
-- 1,000,000 reduction applications per second
... etc ...
If I get a reasonable response, I will summarize results. By the way,
yes I have read about TIM, so any input on closure reducer applications
as well as graph reducer applications is appreciated.
