The experimental backend for Agda targets the OCaml compiler via Malfunction - a library created by OCaml Labs’ own Stephen Dolan. Malfunction is a compilation target that allows functional programming languages to take advantage of the OCaml flambda optimisations, efficient runtime and garbage collector.
Agda is an open-source, dependently typed programming language and proof assistant. With a basis in intuitionistic type theory, it has many similarities with OCaml, and provides the added functionality of constructive logic: a proposition is proved by writing a program of the corresponding type.
