Refunctionalization at Work

  • Olivier Danvy
  • Kevin Millikin


We present the left inverse of Reynolds's defunctionalization and we show its relevance to programming and to programming languages. We present two methods to put a program that is almost in defunctionalized form into one that is actually in defunctionalized form, and we illustrate them with a recognizer for Dyck words and with Dijkstra's shunting-yard algorithm.
