./lang/ocaml, The latest implementation of the Caml dialect of ML

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.07.0, Package name: ocaml-4.07.0, Maintainer: jaapb

Objective Caml is the latest implementation of the Caml dialect of ML. The main
novelties compared with its ancestor, Caml Light, are:

* Full support for objects and classes -- here combined for the first time
with ML-style type reconstruction.
* A powerful module calculus in the style of Standard ML (but retaining
separate compilation).
* A high-performance native code compiler (in addition to a Caml
Light-style bytecode compiler).

Log message:
Updated lang/ocaml to the newest version, 4.07.0.

This breaks quite a few dependencies, more commits to follow.

There are many bugfixes and improvements (see the Changes file), I will
summarise the changes that may cause breakage:

* all standard library modules are now packed into the Stdlib module;
* Unix.isatty now works under the native Windows ports
* strings and bytes are distinguishable in bytecode
* Module aliases are no longer removed in 'module type of' and
  'with module'
* soundness bugfix with non-generalised type variables and local modules
* Ident.t is now abstract and immutable
* only allow directives with filename and at the begining of the line
