Low-level optimization tips and tricks: part 1

The OCaml Journal just published an article about optimization:

"The OCaml programming language is unusually well suited to high-performance computing among functional programming languages because it provides a highly efficient code generator with a performant run-time and garbage collector. This makes it feasible to write high performance programs entirely in OCaml without having to drop to lower-level languages like C and Fortran for performance-critical sections of code. This article describes the low-level optimizations that underpin the ability to write performant OCaml programs by leveraging knowledge about the OCaml compiler..."
