2. Metasepi Report: Writing NetBSD Sound Drivers in Haskell (by Kiwamu Okabe)

      Most strongly typed, functional programming languages are
      not equipped with a reentrant garbage collector. Therefore
      such languages are not used for operating systems programming,
      where the virtues of types are most desired. We propose the
      use of Context-Local Heaps (CLHs) to achieve reentrancy, which
      also increasing the speed of garbage collection.
      We have implemented CLHs in Ajhc,
a Haskell compiler derived from jhc, rewritten some NetBSD sound drivers using Ajhc, and benchmarked them.


Other items on the agenda are:
1. Introduction of new members, news about Linux/Open Source,
   general announcements, Q&A
2. Auction (bring any gear that would would like to donate to TLUG)

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone. There are no membership dues or entrance

After the meeting, we will continue chatting over a few beers.

About TLUG
TLUG is a non-profit, non-political organization established in June
of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools. TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings. Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
We especially want to encourage Japanese people to attend and will make
efforts to support a bilingual meeting.

month on the 2nd Friday.
