  • Abstract: In this paper we describe the structure of the Essential Haskell Compiler (EHC) and how we manage its complexity, despite its growth from essentials to a full Haskell compiler. Our approach splits both language and implementation into smaller, manageable steps, and uses specific tools to generate parts of the compiler from higher level descriptions.
