Open Sourcing Miranda

Miranda is a lazy, polymorphic, purely functional language which David developed in the 1980's. It was quite widely used and the main precursor of Haskell. The Miranda system was closed source, 32 bit code, distributed under license.

In this talk David will describe the process of updating Miranda to Open Source for 64 bit platforms. This involved two steps; first converting the code from "Kernigan & Ritchie" C to C 2011, then changing it from 32bits to 64bits.

Finally, David will outline his plans for Miranda now it is alive again.
