DDC

Disciple is an explicitly lazy dialect of Haskell which supports destructive update, computational effects, type directed field projections and some other useful things.

Disciple vs Haskell

Some example code showing most of the extensions, and its output, core and C-code

The Disciplined Disciple Compiler

  • Uses a typed core language which includes effect, closure, region and mutability information.
  • This extended type information is used to allow code-transformation style optimizations in the presence of side effects and mutable objects.
  • Compiles via standard C99, so is highly portable.
  • Compiles cleanly on linux-x86 and darwin-x86 (tested on Mac OS X 10.5.2)
  • Is in a usable alpha state.

Get the Source

Get the latest stable release with darcs:

    darcs get http://code.haskell.org/ddc/disciple-alpha1

For thrill-seekers, the development branch (which usually builds ok) is:

    darcs get http://code.haskell.org/ddc/disciple-HEAD 

Alternatively, download the source tar-ball from Google code
