This paper presents a framework for sharing analysis based on type inference. The type system used in this paper is a modified version of Milner’s type system. The soundness of the analysis is defined by the semantics of types extended for sharing information and proved with respect to an operational semantics for a strict language. It is also shown that the information obtained by the analysis can be applied to compile-time garbage collection.
