The guts of the simplifier is in this module, but the driver loop for
the simplifier is in SimplCore.lhs.

-----------------------------------------
	*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
-----------------------------------------
The simplifier used to guarantee that the output had no shadowing, but
it does not do so any more.   (Actually, it never did!)  The reason is
documented with simplifyArgs.


52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121
-----------------------------------------
	*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
-----------------------------------------
Many parts of the simplifier return a bunch of "floats" as well as an
expression. This is wrapped as a datatype SimplUtils.FloatsWith.

All "floats" are let-binds, not case-binds, but some non-rec lets may
be unlifted (with RHS ok-for-speculation).



-----------------------------------------
	ORGANISATION OF FUNCTIONS
-----------------------------------------
simplTopBinds
  - simplify all top-level binders
  - for NonRec, call simplRecOrTopPair
  - for Rec,    call simplRecBind

	
	------------------------------
simplExpr (applied lambda)	==> simplNonRecBind
simplExpr (Let (NonRec ...) ..) ==> simplNonRecBind
simplExpr (Let (Rec ...)    ..) ==> simplify binders; simplRecBind

	------------------------------
simplRecBind	[binders already simplfied]
  - use simplRecOrTopPair on each pair in turn

simplRecOrTopPair [binder already simplified]
  Used for: recursive bindings (top level and nested)
	    top-level non-recursive bindings
  Returns: 
  - check for PreInlineUnconditionally
  - simplLazyBind

simplNonRecBind
  Used for: non-top-level non-recursive bindings
	    beta reductions (which amount to the same thing)
  Because it can deal with strict arts, it takes a 
	"thing-inside" and returns an expression

  - check for PreInlineUnconditionally
  - simplify binder, including its IdInfo
  - if strict binding
	simplStrictArg
	mkAtomicArgs
	completeNonRecX
    else
	simplLazyBind
	addFloats

simplNonRecX:	[given a *simplified* RHS, but an *unsimplified* binder]
  Used for: binding case-binder and constr args in a known-constructor case
  - check for PreInLineUnconditionally
  - simplify binder
  - completeNonRecX
 
	------------------------------
simplLazyBind:	[binder already simplified, RHS not]
  Used for: recursive bindings (top level and nested)
	    top-level non-recursive bindings
	    non-top-level, but *lazy* non-recursive bindings
	[must not be strict or unboxed]
  Returns floats + an augmented environment, not an expression
  - substituteIdInfo and add result to in-scope 
	[so that rules are available in rec rhs]
  - simplify rhs
  - mkAtomicArgs
  - float if exposes constructor or PAP
122
  - completeBind
123 124 125 126 127 128


completeNonRecX:	[binder and rhs both simplified]
  - if the the thing needs case binding (unlifted and not ok-for-spec)
	build a Case
   else
129
	completeBind
130 131
	addFloats

132
completeBind: 	[given a simplified RHS]
133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190
	[used for both rec and non-rec bindings, top level and not]
  - try PostInlineUnconditionally
  - add unfolding [this is the only place we add an unfolding]
  - add arity



Right hand sides and arguments
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In many ways we want to treat 
	(a) the right hand side of a let(rec), and 
	(b) a function argument
in the same way.  But not always!  In particular, we would
like to leave these arguments exactly as they are, so they
will match a RULE more easily.
	
	f (g x, h x)	
	g (+ x)

It's harder to make the rule match if we ANF-ise the constructor,
or eta-expand the PAP:

	f (let { a = g x; b = h x } in (a,b))
	g (\y. + x y)

On the other hand if we see the let-defns

	p = (g x, h x)
	q = + x

then we *do* want to ANF-ise and eta-expand, so that p and q
can be safely inlined.   

Even floating lets out is a bit dubious.  For let RHS's we float lets
out if that exposes a value, so that the value can be inlined more vigorously.
For example

	r = let x = e in (x,x)

Here, if we float the let out we'll expose a nice constructor. We did experiments
that showed this to be a generally good thing.  But it was a bad thing to float
lets out unconditionally, because that meant they got allocated more often.

For function arguments, there's less reason to expose a constructor (it won't
get inlined).  Just possibly it might make a rule match, but I'm pretty skeptical.
So for the moment we don't float lets out of function arguments either.


Eta expansion
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For eta expansion, we want to catch things like

	case e of (a,b) -> \x -> case a of (p,q) -> \y -> r

If the \x was on the RHS of a let, we'd eta expand to bring the two
lambdas together.  And in general that's a good thing to do.  Perhaps
we should eta expand wherever we find a (value) lambda?  Then the eta
expansion at a let RHS can concentrate solely on the PAP case.

%************************************************************************

simplRecBind is used for
	* recursive bindings only

\begin{code}
simplRecBind :: SimplEnv -> TopLevelFlag
246 247 248 249 250 251 252
	     -> [(InId, InExpr)]

	= do { env <- simplRecOrTopPair env top_lvl bndr rhs
	     ; go env pairs }
259 260
\end{code}

261
simplOrTopPair is used for
262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269
	* recursive bindings (whether top level or not)
	* top-level non-recursive bindings

It assumes the binder has already been simplified, but not its IdInfo.

\begin{code}
simplRecOrTopPair :: SimplEnv
	     	  -> TopLevelFlag
270 271
	     	  -> InId -> InExpr	-- Binder and rhs
	     	  -> SimplM SimplEnv	-- Returns an env that includes the binding

282 283 284 285 286
	-- May not actually be recursive, but it doesn't matter
\end{code}


simplLazyBind is used for
287 288 289
  * [simplRecOrTopPair] recursive bindings (whether top level or not)
  * [simplRecOrTopPair] top-level non-recursive bindings
  * [simplNonRecE]	non-top-level *lazy* non-recursive bindings
290 291 292

Nota bene:
    1. It assumes that the binder is *already* simplified, 
293
       and is in scope, and its IdInfo too, except unfolding
294 295 296 297 298 299 300 301 302 303

    2. It assumes that the binder type is lifted.

    3. It does not check for pre-inline-unconditionallly;
       that should have been done already.

\begin{code}
simplLazyBind :: SimplEnv
	      -> TopLevelFlag -> RecFlag
	      -> InId -> OutId		-- Binder, both pre-and post simpl
304
					-- The OutId has IdInfo, except arity, unfolding

%************************************************************************
%*									*
\subsection{simplNonRec}
%*									*
%************************************************************************

A specialised variant of simplNonRec used when the RHS is already simplified, 
notably in knownCon.  It uses case-binding where necessary.

\begin{code}
simplNonRecX :: SimplEnv
	     -> InId 		-- Old binder
	     -> OutExpr		-- Simplified RHS
	     -> SimplM SimplEnv

simplNonRecX env bndr new_rhs
  = do	{ (env, bndr') <- simplBinder env bndr
	; completeNonRecX env NotTopLevel NonRecursive
			  (isStrictBndr bndr) bndr bndr' new_rhs }

completeNonRecX :: SimplEnv
		-> TopLevelFlag -> RecFlag -> Bool
	        -> InId 		-- Old binder
		-> OutId		-- New binder
	     	-> OutExpr		-- Simplified RHS
	     	-> SimplM SimplEnv

completeNonRecX env top_lvl is_rec is_strict old_bndr new_bndr new_rhs
  = do 	{ (env1, rhs1) <- prepareRhs (zapFloats env) new_rhs
	; (env2, rhs2) <- chooseRhsFloats top_lvl is_rec is_strict env env1 rhs1
	; completeBind env2 NotTopLevel old_bndr new_bndr rhs2 }
\end{code}

{- No, no, no!  Do not try preInlineUnconditionally in completeNonRecX
   Doing so risks exponential behaviour, because new_rhs has been simplified once already
   In the cases described by the folowing commment, postInlineUnconditionally will 
   catch many of the relevant cases.
  	-- This happens; for example, the case_bndr during case of
	-- known constructor:  case (a,b) of x { (p,q) -> ... }
	-- Here x isn't mentioned in the RHS, so we don't want to
	-- create the (dead) let-binding  let x = (a,b) in ...
385
	--
386 387 388
	-- Similarly, single occurrences can be inlined vigourously
	-- e.g.  case (f x, g y) of (a,b) -> ....
	-- If a,b occur once we can avoid constructing the let binding for them.
389

390 391 392 393 394 395 396
   Furthermore in the case-binding case preInlineUnconditionally risks extra thunks
	-- Consider 	case I# (quotInt# x y) of 
	--		  I# v -> let w = J# v in ...
	-- If we gaily inline (quotInt# x y) for v, we end up building an
	-- extra thunk:
	--		  let w = J# (quotInt# x y) in ...
	-- because quotInt# can fail.
397

398 399 400 401 402 403 404 405 406 407 408 409 410 411 412 413 414
  | preInlineUnconditionally env NotTopLevel bndr new_rhs
  = thing_inside (extendIdSubst env bndr (DoneEx new_rhs))
-}

prepareRhs takes a putative RHS, checks whether it's a PAP or
constructor application and, if so, converts it to ANF, so that the 
resulting thing can be inlined more easily.  Thus
	x = (f a, g b)
becomes
	t1 = f a
	t2 = g b
	x = (t1,t2)

\begin{code}
prepareRhs :: SimplEnv -> OutExpr -> SimplM (SimplEnv, OutExpr)
-- Adds new floats to the env iff that allows us to return a good RHS

Note [Float coercions]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When we find the binding
	x = e `cast` co
we'd like to transform it to
	x' = e
	x = x `cast` co		-- A trivial binding
There's a chance that e will be a constructor application or function, or something
like that, so moving the coerion to the usage site may well cancel the coersions
and lead to further optimisation.  Example:

     data family T a :: *
     data instance T Int = T Int

     foo :: Int -> Int -> Int
     foo m n = ...
        where
          x = T m
          go 0 = 0
          go n = case x of { T m -> go (n-m) }
		-- This case should optimise


\begin{code}
makeTrivial :: SimplEnv -> OutExpr -> SimplM (SimplEnv, OutExpr)
-- Binds the expression to a variable, if it's not trivial, returning the variable
makeTrivial env expr
  | exprIsTrivial expr
  = return (env, expr)
  | otherwise		-- See Note [Take care] below
  = do 	{ var <- newId FSLIT("a") (exprType expr)
	; env <- completeNonRecX env NotTopLevel NonRecursive 
				 False var var expr
	; return (env, substExpr env (Var var)) }

completeBind
  * deals only with Ids, not TyVars
  * takes an already-simplified binder and RHS
  * is used for both recursive and non-recursive bindings
  * is used for both top-level and non-top-level bindings
482 483 484 485 486 487 488 489

It does the following:
  - tries discarding a dead binding
  - tries PostInlineUnconditionally
  - add unfolding [this is the only place we add an unfolding]
  - add arity

It does *not* attempt to do let-to-case.  Why?  Because it is used for
490 491
  - top-level bindings (when let-to-case is impossible) 
  - many situations where the "rhs" is known to be a WHNF
492 493
		(so let-to-case is inappropriate).

The reason for this OutExprStuff stuff is that we want to float *after*
simplifying a RHS, not before.  If we do so naively we get quadratic
behaviour as things float out.

To see why it's important to do it after, consider this (real) example:

	let t = f x
	in fst t
==>
	let t = let a = e1
		    b = e2
		in (a,b)
	in fst t
==>
	let a = e1
	    b = e2
	    t = (a,b)
	in
	a	-- Can't inline a this round, cos it appears twice
==>
	e1

Each of the ==> steps is a round of simplification.  We'd save a
whole round if we float first.  This can cascade.  Consider

	let f = g d
	in \x -> ...f...
==>
	let f = let d1 = ..d.. in \y -> e
	in \x -> ...f...
==>
	let d1 = ..d..
	in \x -> ...(\y ->e)...

Only in this second round can the \y be applied, and it 
might do the same again.

Note [Shadowing]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This part of the simplifier may break the no-shadowing invariant
Consider
	f (...(\a -> e)...) (case y of (a,b) -> e')
where f is strict in its second arg
If we simplify the innermost one first we get (...(\a -> e)...)
Simplifying the second arg makes us float the case out, so we end up with
	case y of (a,b) -> f (...(\a -> e)...) e'
So the output does not have the no-shadowing invariant.  However, there is
no danger of getting name-capture, because when the first arg was simplified
we used an in-scope set that at least mentioned all the variables free in its
static environment, and that is enough.

We can't just do innermost first, or we'd end up with a dual problem:
	case x of (a,b) -> f e (...(\a -> e')...)

I spent hours trying to recover the no-shadowing invariant, but I just could
not think of an elegant way to do it.  The simplifier is already knee-deep in
continuations.  We have to keep the right in-scope set around; AND we have
to get the effect that finding (error "foo") in a strict arg position will
discard the entire application and replace it with (error "foo").  Getting
all this at once is TOO HARD!

simplCaseBinder checks whether the scrutinee is a variable, v.  If so,
try to eliminate uses of v in the RHSs in favour of case_bndr; that
way, there's a chance that v will now only be used once, and hence
inlined.

Note [no-case-of-case]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1119 1120 1121
There is a time we *don't* want to do that, namely when
-fno-case-of-case is on.  This happens in the first simplifier pass,
and enhances full laziness.  Here's the bad case:
1122 1123 1124 1125 1126
	f = \ y -> ...(case x of I# v -> ...(case x of ...) ... )
If we eliminate the inner case, we trap it inside the I# v -> arm,
which might prevent some full laziness happening.  I've seen this
in action in spectral/cichelli/Prog.hs:
	 [(m,n) | m <- [1..max], n <- [1..max]]
1127 1128
Hence the check for NoCaseOfCase.

Note [Suppressing the case binder-swap]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is another situation when it might make sense to suppress the
case-expression binde-swap. If we have
1133 1134 1135 1136 1137 1138 1139 1140 1141

    case x of w1 { DEFAULT -> case x of w2 { A -> e1; B -> e2 }
	           ...other cases .... }

We'll perform the binder-swap for the outer case, giving

    case x of w1 { DEFAULT -> case w1 of w2 { A -> e1; B -> e2 } 
	           ...other cases .... }

1142 1143 1144 1145
But there is no point in doing it for the inner case, because w1 can't
be inlined anyway.  Furthermore, doing the case-swapping involves
zapping w2's occurrence info (see paragraphs that follow), and that
forces us to bind w2 when doing case merging.  So we get
1146 1147 1148 1149 1150 1151 1152 1153 1154 1155 1156 1157

    case x of w1 { A -> let w2 = w1 in e1
		   B -> let w2 = w1 in e2
	           ...other cases .... }

This is plain silly in the common case where w2 is dead.

Even so, I can't see a good way to implement this idea.  I tried
not doing the binder-swap if the scrutinee was already evaluated
but that failed big-time:

	data T = MkT !Int
1158

1159 1160 1161
	case v of w  { MkT x ->
	case x of x1 { I# y1 ->
	case x of x2 { I# y2 -> ...
1162

1163 1164 1165 1166 1167
Notice that because MkT is strict, x is marked "evaluated".  But to
eliminate the last case, we must either make sure that x (as well as
x1) has unfolding MkT y1.  THe straightforward thing to do is to do
the binder-swap.  So this whole note is a no-op.

Note [zapOccInfo]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1170 1171 1172 1173
If we replace the scrutinee, v, by tbe case binder, then we have to nuke
any occurrence info (eg IAmDead) in the case binder, because the
case-binder now effectively occurs whenever v does.  AND we have to do
the same for the pattern-bound variables!  Example:
1174

1175
	(case x of { (a,b) -> a }) (case x of { (p,q) -> q })
1176

1177 1178
Here, b and p are dead.  But when we move the argment inside the first
case RHS, and eliminate the second case, we get
1179

1180
	case x of { (a,b) -> a b }
1181

1182
Urk! b is alive!  Reason: the scrutinee was a variable, and case elimination
1183 1184 1185 1186 1187 1188 1189 1190 1191 1192
happened.  

Indeed, this can happen anytime the case binder isn't dead:
	case <any> of x { (a,b) -> 
        case x of { (p,q) -> p } }
Here (a,b) both look dead, but come alive after the inner case is eliminated.
The point is that we bring into the envt a binding
	let x = (a,b) 
after the outer case, and that makes (a,b) alive.  At least we do unless
the case binder is guaranteed dead.

Note [Case of cast]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Consider 	case (v `cast` co) of x { I# ->
		... (case (v `cast` co) of {...}) ...
We'd like to eliminate the inner case.  We can get this neatly by 
arranging that inside the outer case we add the unfolding
	v |-> x `cast` (sym co)
to v.  Then we should inline v at the inner case, cancel the casts, and away we go

simplAlts does two things:

1.  Eliminate alternatives that cannot match, including the
    DEFAULT alternative.

2.  If the DEFAULT alternative can match only one possible constructor,
    then make that constructor explicit.
    e.g.
	case e of x { DEFAULT -> rhs }
