Computing Dictionary
  1. Software package supplied by Network Research Corporation claiming to connect various different configurations of LAN.

  2. A program transformation where a composition of two functions is replaced by in-lining them and combining their bodies. E.g.

            f x = g (h x)        ==>        f x = g (2 * x)
            g x = x + 1                f x = 2 * x + 1
            h x = 2 * x

    This has the beneficial effect of reducing the number of function calls. It can be especially useful where the intermediate result is a large data structure which can be eliminated.

    See also vertical loop combination.
