Introduction

All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.

TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.

As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of odd-numbered months and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 2nd Friday of even-numbered months. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.

Metasepi Report: Writing NetBSD Sound Drivers in Haskell (by Kiwamu Okabe)

Most strongly typed, functional programming languages are not equipped with a reentrant garbage collector. Therefore such languages are not used for operating systems programming, where the virtues of types are most desired. We propose the use of Context-Local Heaps (CLHs) to achieve reentrancy, which also increasing the speed of garbage collection. We have implemented CLHs in Ajhc http://ajhc.metasepi.org/, a Haskell compiler derived from jhc http://repetae.net/computer/jhc/, rewritten some NetBSD sound drivers using Ajhc, and benchmarked them.
