joujou is a compiler from a small functional language to C. It supports curried functions, algebraic data types and deep pattern matching, algebraic effects (with multishot continuations), a static type system with inference of types and effects, supporting subtyping. It also has a generational garbage collector included in compiled programs (only the minor generation is actually collected for now, though). Its compilation scheme rests on continuation-passing style transformation and defunctionalisation -- as such, compiled programs are not very efficient. It however supports efficient application of a n-ary function to all of its arguments, without building intermediate closures. Note: see report/report.pdf (in French) for details about the implemented features.
