Check that top level CAFs don't have side effects.

Priority: blocker Milestone: 0.1.3

Keywords: Cc:


There is no implied order of evaluation for top level CAFS. Indeed, Core.Sequence rearranges them so that they can be initialised in the correct order.

Check that CAFs don't have side effects, and throw a type error if they do.

A !Read %r1 effect on the CAF is ok as long as a !Const %r1 witness is also in scope. Any other sort of side effect on the CAF's expression should be a type error.

There was no easy way to discover what !Const witnesses are in scope for a top-level binding, so I've added an envWitnessConst field to the Type.Util.Environment.Env record. This field gets updated when processing top-level PRegion values with the witnesses they contain.
