A simple functional language

GeomLab is based on a simple functional language called Fun, and a still simpler language with the same name (but without the pattern-matching) is implemented by interpreter in the Principles of Programming Languages course. (GeomLab has a self-hosting compiler that targets the JVM).

The goal of this project is to produce another prototype implementation of Fun, or a language like it, via a compiler that targets some other platform. One possibility is to modify Keiko by allowing heap-allocated activation records; another is to compile to the existing Keiko machine but use closure conversion.
