Closure conversion as part of vectorisation
TODO describe the treatment of higher-order functions and closure conversion here. The relevant paper is http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~chak/papers/LCK06.html. The approach is described in more detail in http://opus.kobv.de/tuberlin/volltexte/2006/1286/.
From the Skype discussion, 16 Mar 07
For each function
f::ty, create a closure-converted function
ty' is the closure-converted verion of
fc=f, if the code for
fc will be identical to that of
For each data type
T, create a closure-converted data type
Tc, whose constructors use
Clo instead of
->. Optimisation: if
Tc is identical to
T, don't create a new data type.
