|Target Version||Fixed in Version||3.13.0+dev|
|Summary||0005287: optimization of partial applications|
|Description||Partial applications like (f x) where f has arity greater than 3 are expensive, since every application will lead to a closure allocation for each intermediary argument. Moreover, such functions are not inlined anymore.|
This patch fixes these two behaviors:
- in cmmgen.ml, caml_curry functions are modified so that they can be applied directly, when all the remaining arguments are provided. No allocation anymore for intermediate arguments.
- in closure.ml, partial applications are detected, and, when the true arity of the function is known, an eta-expansion is performed.
- since approximations of arguments are lost during applications, the optimization is less interesting than with the patch I sent by email, but its complexity is unchanged (the "planck" parser of Jun could trigger an exponential complexity due to the recursive call to "close")
- approximations are not known for external functions when they are bigger than the inlining threshold, so the transformation cannot be triggered for them, although it would be interesting.
