At this point I'd like to make two remarks:
"Compiling with Continuations" is not meant as a comprehensive undergraduate
textbook on compilers, as some people have correctly pointed out.
For example, I consider LR(1) parsing algorithms to be quite important
and useful, but they are quite adequately covered in the standard works
on compilers; therefore, I didn't cover parsing.
Standard ML of New Jersey has indeed been a hog in some ways; but we have
recently been applying the principles covered in Chapter 12 (Space Complexity)
of my book, and memory usage has gone down by a factor of two or three.
Expect an announcement of a new release on the sml mailing list shortly.
(To get on the sml mailing list, which covers topics of interest to users
of Standard ML, e-mail to email@example.com.)
