I'm presenting the Cat programming language at Lang. NET 2006 today. The slides are now online.


The title of the talk is: Cat, an Optimization Framework for the MSIL. The focus of the presentation is on using Cat as an intermediate language for performing functional optimizations on imperative languages.
