#261 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Implement tailcalls in the C backend

Reported by: benl Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core to Sea Translation Version: 0.2.1
Keywords: Cc:


The C backend currently performs standard calls for the tailcallN# primops, instead of doing a real tail call.

For direct tail recursion we should overwrite the function parameters with the new arguments and jump back the start of the function.
