ICFP 2017

We show how to compile high-level functional array-processing programs, drawn from image processing and machine learning, into C code that runs as fast as hand-written C. The key idea is to transform the program to \emph{destination passing style}, which in turn enables a highly-efficient stack-like memory allocation discipline.
