Implementing Functional Languages: a tutorial
by Simon Peyton Jones, David Lester
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1992
Number of pages: 296
This book gives a practical approach to understanding implementations of non-strict functional languages using lazy graph reduction. The book is intended to be a source of practical labwork material, to help make functional-language implementations 'come alive', by helping the reader to develop, modify and experiment with some non-trivial compilers.
