Hi Michael,

Here is a short description of Sprite:

"Sprite is a compiler and runtime for Curry programs. It is based on the Fair Scheme, a compilation strategy for transforming declarative, non-deterministic source programs into imperative, deterministic code. As the Fair Scheme emphasizes operational completeness, Sprite aims to produce all values of Curry programs, subject only to practical limits such as the amount of memory available."

Also, the following papers are relevant:

_at_inproceedings{Antoy2013CompilingAF,
  title={Compiling a Functional Logic Language: The Fair Scheme},
  author={S. Antoy and A. Jost},
  booktitle={LOPSTR},
  year={2013}
}

_at_article{Antoy2016ANF,
  title={A New Functional-Logic Compiler for Curry: Sprite},
  author={S. Antoy and A. Jost},
  journal={ArXiv},
  year={2016},
  volume={abs/1608.04016}
}

-Andy

Hi,

thanks for your feedback. We will try to do some improvements.

_at_Andy: could you send me a paragraph and/or reference to Sprite?
Then I could include it in the wiki.

Regards,

Michael

Someone familiar with SEO might be able to suggest improvements. Perhaps including the phrase "curry programming language" in its entirety would help.
