Pizza 1.1 now available
We'd like to announce availability of Pizza 1.1, a strict superset of
Java 1.1, including support for inner classes. Pizza 1.1 also
incorporates four additional concepts, three of which are inherited
from the original Pizza language:
- parametric polymorphism,
- higher-order functions,
- algebraic types, and
- tail-recursion in constant space.
Pizza 1.1 is implemented on top of the JDK 1.1 development kit. The
Pizza compiler is a straight replacement for Sun's Java compiler,
javac. When compiling .java files, the Pizza compiler works just like
javac, except that it is up to 2 times faster for large programs.
An implementation of Pizza with a kernel library and some example
programs is available from
It will also soon (week following June 1st) be available from our
Martin Odersky, University of South Australia,
Philip Wadler, Lucent Technologies,
