I am working on building a type-checking system for a language which
has both polymorphism and overloading, and compile-time type checking.
I have been looking for an algorithm for this problem, but all
literature found so far (robinson 1965, milner 1978, cardelli
1986(1987?)) assumes polymorphism only. Overloading is sometimes
mentioned, but never included in the proposed solution.
I have some ideas on how to combine both concepts into a workable
system, but proving anything about that system would cost me too much
time (and would be outside my research-area).
So, is there anyone who can point me into the direction of an algorithm
(or articles from which an algorithm could be deduced) to handle this
problem ? Surely, someone in this large world must have looked at the
combination of polymorpism and overloading ?
Further details can be provided at request (imho there are too much
details to post at this time to the newsgroup, so I left them out).
Tnx in advance for your time,
