<Philippa> do we have a case of haskell faster than C on a platform where GHC
compiles via C and doesn't screw with the output yet?
<jethr0> wouldn't that just be a blatant case of slow c benchmarking code? :)
<dons> the concurrency or binary tree benchmarks?
<jethr0> someone could put the haskell intermediate c code up as the c benchmark *g*
<musasabi> yes, 30000 lines of C? ;)

Oh like that's going to work. You'd be better off selling T-shirts that
say "WHAT PART OF" (and then the Hindley-Milner prinicipal-type
algorithm) "DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?".
If anyone gives you any lip, ask them how to find the square-root of a
string. Everything else follows on from that.
