Week 42- OCaml

Post icon  Posted 01 December 2010 - 03:31 PM

This week's challenge is Objective Caml, the most popular variant of the Caml language. OCaml combines the Object-Oriented, Imperative, and Functional paradigms, along with static typing to help reduce problems at runtime. It also has type-inference, so one does not need to explicitly declare data types in method signatures or variables.

Some of OCaml's other features include:
  • Parametric polymorphism
  • Tail recursion
  • Pattern matching
  • First class lexical closures
  • Functors
  • Exception handling
  • Automated garbage collection

OCaml is a neat language. Note that, if you so desired, you could also cheat and use F#. F# is a very, very similar language based off of OCaml.
