Abstract : Functional language compilers implement only weak-head reduction. However, there are cases where head normal forms or full normal forms are needed. Here, we study how to use cps conversion for the compilation of head and strong reductions. We apply cps expressions to a special continuation so that their head or strong normal can be obtained by the usual weak-head reduction. We remain within the functional framework and no special abstract machine is needed. Used as a preliminary step our method allows a standard compiler to evaluate under l's.
