The nofib Benchmark Suite of Haskell Programs
This position paper describes the need for, make-up of, and “rules of the game” for a benchmark suite of Haskell programs. (It does not include results from running the suite.) Those of us working on the Glasgow Haskell compiler hope this suite will encourage sound, quantitative assessment of lazy functional programming systems. This version of this paper reflects the state of play at the initial pre-release of the suite.
