The F# Journal just published an article about metaprogramming:
"We were once faced with the challenge of pricing up a project to translate the world's largest Mathematica code base into F#. This project had a multitude of unknowns any one of which could end up being a show stopper. In order to price this work properly we had to quantify many different aspects of the Mathematica code base. This article describes the approach we took, using F# to parse the entire Mathematica code base and analyze it in order to determine the complexity of the challenge we faced..."

Does reference counting really use less memory than tracing garbage collection? Mathematica vs Swift vs OCaml vs F# on .NET and Mono - Our previous post caused some controversy by questioning the validity of some commonly-held beliefs. Specifically, the beliefs that reference counting (RC)...
