#707 closed bug (duplicate)

foldr/build seems to be broken

Reading the documentation for ghc it says that if a good consumer meets a good producer the intermediate list will disappear. List enumeration is s good producer, and length is a good consumer, so there should be no intermediate list between these.

Looking at the example below, it sure looks like a list is generated.

module CG1 where

foo :: Int -> Int
foo n = length [1..n]

-- Compile with
-- ghc -v5 -ddump-simpl-stats -ddump-rules -O2 -S CG1.hs

-- Output from this compilation
Glasgow Haskell Compiler, Version 6.4.1, for Haskell 98, compiled by GHC version 6.4


==================== STG syntax: ==================== =

	case n_s1Ah of wild1_s1Ap {
	  GHC.Base.I# y_s1Ak ->

		__DEFAULT ->
		    case GHC.List.$wlen sat_s1Am 0 of ww_s1Ao {
		      __DEFAULT -> GHC.Base.I# [ww_s1Ao];
