Low-level optimization tips and tricks: part 2

The OCaml Journal just published the second article in a series about low-level 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 covers allocation and garbage collection and various forms of specialization including type, function and data structure specialization..."
