[Haskell-cafe] GHC integers pre-allocation

I believe that we statically allocate all ASCII chars, and Ints between
-16 and +16.  Have a look in ghc/rts/StgMiscClosures.cmm

Subject: [Haskell-cafe] GHC integers pre-allocation


Hi all,
  does anyone know if GHC implements any kind of pre-allocation of
integers/caracteres ?  If yes, which range of values does it use?

Thanks in advance,

Monique Monteiro
