[Haskell-cafe] Producing fortran/C code with haskell?

I seem to recall a discussion, don't know if it was here or on 
comp.lang.functional, where somebody said he uses haskell to generate 
fortran code.

That fascinated me a lot, because that would mean being able to generate 
a program already specialized for a specific input, by first reading 
input in haskell and then producing code (fortran, but could be C 
either) - and because I guess it can add static safety exploiting 
haskell types. Since we already have that nice syntax for monads those 
programs should be readable, too.

Where could I find information on such topics, or existing libraries to 
generate programs with haskell? Is somebody willing to share what (s)he 
already did?
