For benchmarking, here's the list-of-lists version, which is just
Ulf's incr2 with the recursive call moved from where the continuation
is created to where the continuation is invoked:
incr6([H|T]) when list(H) ->
incr66([H|T], C) ->
incr66(, C) ->
Ulf, I'd be interested to know how it runs in the benchmark, since you
seem to have a way of timing things better than us (maybe a Solaris
Favourite Haiku error: Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.
