Linear Bestiary of Francois Pottier

Ugh, I suck at this blogging thing. I periodically get ambitious, and make big plans. That doesn’t actually lead to any completed posts, just many long half-finished posts, and hundreds of open tabs in Firefox. I think I’ll start with some short posts.

Linear types are one of those things that I’d always wanted to learn more about. The idea seems somewhat natural &emdash; practically speaking the amount of resources an object uses is part of its signature &emdash; but the details are sufficiently complex that I’ve never quite mastered it. This presentation by Francois Pottier seems like a nice place to start.
