The final stage in GHC's compilation pipeline is the transformation from GHC's intermediate language Cmm to assembly code in the native code generator.
During this talk, you will explore an overview of the structure of the native code generator and the mapping of Cmm language constructs to assembly code. Haskell pattern matching simplifies peephole optimisation.
Examples will be based on the Linux 64-bit PowerPC backend but should be accessible to anyone with basic knowledge of assembler.
