Abstract We describe the design, implementation and use of a new kind of profiling tool that
yields valuable information about the memory use of lazy functional programs. The tool has
two parts: a modified functional language implementation which generates profiling

information to graphical form. With the aid of profile graphs, one can make alterations to a
functional program which dramatically reduce its space consumption. We demonstrate this ...
