Caml Light

A small portable implementation of a version of CAML by Xavier Leroy <> and Damien Doligez of INRIA. Caml Light uses a bytecode interpreter written in C. It adds a Modula-2-like module system, separate compilation, lazy streams for parsing and printing, graphics primitives and an interface with C.

Version 0.6 runs on Unix, MS-DOS, Macintosh, Atari ST and Amiga. It includes an interpreter, compiler, Emacs mode, libraries, scanner generator, parser generator, run-time support and an interactive development environment.

The latest version, as of April 2003, is 0.75 and runs on Unix, Macintosh and Windows.

The development of Caml Light has been stopped; current development is on Objective Caml.
