I am not sure if I'm using DSL in the right context here but I am referring to
those solutions that allow us to write code in Haskell and generate a target
code source code of another language or even object code for that matter. I am
aware of two ways of achieving this -
1. Implement functions that emit the target code - that is, when the Haskell
code is compiled and run, the target code is emitted
2. Modify the Haskell compiler's back end to emit the code - that is when the
Haskell code is compiled the target code is emitted
I am not sure if there are more ways (hybrid perhaps) ...
My question is, when would I chose one approach over the other?
