I've been looking at a language called Hope from Imperial College, which
is a compiled, _strongly_typed_ true functional language with true
first class functions. The excellent book _Functional_Programming_
by Field and Harrison of IC, introduces the language and gives an
in-depth study of how to compile it and anything like it. An
implementation for the Suns has been developed by IC, which is supposed
to be very fast. I can send more details on the Sun version by e-mail.
