**Implementing Functional Languages: a tutorial**

by Simon Peyton Jones, David Lester

**Publisher**: Prentice Hall 1992**ISBN/ASIN**: B001UHUR8W**Number of pages**: 296

**Description**:

This book gives a practical approach to understanding implementations of non-strict functional languages using lazy graph reduction. The book is intended to be a source of practical labwork material, to help make functional-language implementations 'come alive', by helping the reader to develop, modify and experiment with some non-trivial compilers.
