Competitive partial evaluation - Some remaining problems of partial evaluation

Akikazu Takeuchi, Hiroshi Fujita

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper discusses the remaininig problems of partial evaluation, comparing competitive partial evaluation to expert programmers who are able to improve programs very effectively. Two case studies of medium size examples are presented to show how to obtain maximal speedup and global control of partial evaluation respectively. These studies are expected to suggest the direction of future research towards everyday-use partial evaluation.
