Inline Data.Bits.rotate@Int, enables rotate to be constant folded All other Bits instances seem to inline well enough on their own to enable constant folding, e.g. sumU . mapU (`shift` 3) . replicateU 10000000 $ (7 :: Int) goes to: Main.$wfold = \ (ww_sOb :: Int#) (ww1_sOf :: Int#) -> case ww1_sOf of wild_XM { __DEFAULT -> Main.$wfold (+# ww_sOb 56) (+# wild_XM 1); 10000000 -> ww_sOb } With this patch, rotate gets inlined and folded too, sumU . mapU (`rotate` 3) . replicateU 10000000 $ (7 :: Int) to: Main.$wfold = \ (ww_sO7 :: Int#) (ww1_sOb :: Int#) -> case ww1_sOb of wild_XM { __DEFAULT -> Main.$wfold (+# ww_sO7 56) (+# wild_XM 1); 10000000 -> ww_sO7 Whereas it was left as a call to $wrotate before.

Add RULES for realToFrac from Int. {-# RULES "realToFrac/Int->Double" realToFrac = int2Double "realToFrac/Int->Float" realToFrac = int2Float #-} Note that this only matters for realToFrac. If you've been using fromIntegral to promote Int to Doubles, things should be fine as they are. The following program, using stream fusion to eliminate arrays: import Data.Array.Vector n = 40000000 main = do let c = replicateU n (2::Double) a = mapU realToFrac (enumFromToU 0 (n-1) ) :: UArr Double print (sumU (zipWithU (*) c a)) Yields this loop body without the RULE: case $wtoRational sc_sY4 of ww_aM7 { (# ww1_aM9, ww2_aMa #) -> case $wfromRat ww1_aM9 ww2_aMa of tpl_X1P { D# ipv_sW3 -> Main.$s$wfold (+# sc_sY4 1) (+# wild_X1i 1) (+## sc2_sY6 (*## 2.0 ipv_sW3)) And with the rule: Main.$s$wfold (+# sc_sXT 1) (+# wild_X1h 1) (+## sc2_sXV (*## 2.0 (int2Double# sc_sXT))) The running time of the program goes from 120 seconds to 0.198 seconds with the native backend, and 0.143 seconds with the C backend. And just so I don't forget, here's the difference in resulting assembly (x86_64), between the native code generator, and the C backend. -fasm Main_zdszdwfold_info: movq %rdi,%rax cmpq $40000000,%rax jne .LcZK jmp *(%rbp) .LcZK: cmpq $39999999,%rsi jg .LcZN cvtsi2sdq %rsi,%xmm0 mulsd .LnZP(%rip),%xmm0 movsd %xmm5,%xmm7 addsd %xmm0,%xmm7 incq %rax incq %rsi movq %rax,%rdi movsd %xmm7,%xmm5 jmp Main_zdszdwfold_info With the C backend we get the even better assembly, (-fvia-C -optc-O3) Main_zdszdwfold_info: cmpq $40000000, %rdi je .L9 .L5: cmpq $39999999, %rsi jg .L9 cvtsi2sdq %rsi, %xmm0 leaq 1(%rdi), %rdi addq $1, %rsi addsd %xmm0, %xmm0 addsd %xmm0, %xmm5 jmp Main_zdszdwfold_info .L9: jmp *(%rbp) So might make a useful test once the native codegen project starts up.
