[Haskell] ANN: NoSlow - Microbenchmarks for array libraries

I'm pleased to announce NoSlow, a nascent benchmark suite for various array (and list) libraries with particular emphasis on finding out how well they fuse things. At the moment, it knows about

  * standard lists
  * primitive DPH arrays (dph-prim-seq)
  * uvector
  * vector
  * storablevector

It compiles and runs (using Brian's criterion) a fairly random collection of very small loop kernels for each of those and produces a lot of data which it then uses to generate ugly HTML tables. In the future, it will have more benchmarks, more complex benchmarks and much prettier tables.

You can get more information (including the ugly tables) from my blog


and NoSlow itself from Hackage


Any help would be highly appreciated as I don't have a lot of time to work on it.
