Jhc - experimental whole program compiler. slightly better than jhc,
but not by much due to a lack of manpower. in the spirit of "get
it right, then optimize" currently takes several minutes to
compile 10-line programs. :)
Hbc - The haskell compiler. Augustsson and Johnsson's pioneering work
on compiling lazy languages is embodied in hbc, a direct
descendant of the Lazy ML compiler. Generally ~30% slower than
GHC, and occasionally faster - rather suprising for a compiler
that hasn't been improved in over a decade.
