  • The first input to the specialiser is a description of a two input machine.

    Planet Haskell

  • The specialiser can accept a description of a specialiser as its first input.

    Planet Haskell

  • If we know we're always going to want to use the same interpreter then we could streamline the specialiser to work specifically with this input.

    Planet Haskell

  • By writing a specialiser, the purveyors of such tools allow third parties to develop their own compilers and so this is more useful than just writing a dedicated compiler.

    Planet Haskell

  • The specialiser does the latter so our would-be compiler writer can concentrate on the former.

    Planet Haskell

  • The specialiser whirrs away and eventually outputs a description of a machine that is an interpreter that is dedicated to making that one particular coin.

    Planet Haskell

  • But the specialiser is itself a two input machine.

    Planet Haskell

  • If we have a specialiser we never need to make a compiler again.
