Hello Compiler Experts!
The book  that I started reading says this:
ML is well suited to many applications,
but compiler implementation in particular
seems to hit all of its strong points and
few of its weaknesses. Implementing a
compiler in ML is quite a pleasant task.
What is it about ML that makes it such a good language for implementing
The book was written in the 90's. Are there new languages that are even better
than ML as a compiler implementation language?
