#1661 new proposed-project

Improve performance of native code

There are at least two open GHC tickets (#8279 and #8287) to improve the performance of generated code. Both of these already have a good amount of discussion and (old) patches to get you started.

This would be a good topic to follow through to the point where it can be merged into GHC, as every Haskell program compiled to native code would benefit.

as the author of both those tickets, i'm not sure I'd consider either ticket "properly sized" for a student gsoc. If a student was interested in working on ghc code gen, i'm happy to talk with them to help figure out good ideas, but i'm moderately skeptical that those two tickets make sense for gsoc work :)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
