The effectiveness of type-based unboxing

Abstract : We compare the efficiency of type-based unboxing strategies with that of simpler, untyped unboxing optimizations, building on our practical experience with the Gallium and Objective Caml compilers. We find the untyped optimizations to perform as well on the best case and significantly better in the worst case.
