"Lists are often used as "glue" to connect separate parts of a program together. We propose an automatic technique for improving the efficiency of such programs, by removing many of these intermediate lists, based on a single, simple, local transformation. We have implemented the method in the Glasgow Haskell compiler."

Christopher Diggins is a Principal Developer at Autodesk and designed the MCG visual programming languge in 3ds Max 2016. He has an unhealthy obsession with programming languages.
