    6 Our end goal is to have a light-weight functional language based on Haskell's syntax but with direct support for strict evaluation and arbitrary destructive update. These two features give the programmer better control over runtime performance than Haskell compilers can offer. Our target applications are the ones that you always find yourself writing C programs for, because existing functional languages are too slow, use too much memory, or don't let you update the data that you need to.
