|Priority||normal||Severity||feature||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0007535: Improve sharing of values|
|Description||Given following snippet of a code:|
type 'a id = Id of 'a
let make (Id x) = Id x
allocation happens every time 'make' called (using flambda-enabled compiler).
Unfortunately it prevents a lot of further optimizations that could happen if it was compiled as simply
let make (Id _ as x) = x
It seems that flambda already capable of eliminating some allocations, i.e.
let make x =
let f (Id x) = Id x in
f @@ f @@ f @@ f @@ f x
allocates only one block.

In this specific example, you'd be better off adding [@@unboxed] on the type definition (or using the command flag that adds it implicitely).
But it's true that sometimes, the compiler could avoid reallocating things, especially when the workaround is not expressible in the source like:
|  -> assert false
| hd :: tl -> hd, tl
