Implementation notes for closure conversion


Almost all of the code concerning closure conversion is in the module ClosureConv in the directory vectorise/. This module exports the function closureConvert, which is invoked as part of the core-to-core passes right after the desugarer if the option fclosure-conv is provided.

Actual conversion

There is a separate description of the conversion scheme. This abstract description uses the convention that the existance of an Id, TyCon, or dataCon name followed by _CC indicates whether we have a closure converted variant of the corresponding declaration. In the concrete implementation this information is maintained in UniqFMs.
