1) French interactive fiction, anyone ?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Berke Durak proposed:

Since it's now summer time, is anyone willing to write an interactive
fiction game (i.e.  la Zork or Adventure, although not necessarily in
that particular (fantasy) style) in French (and in Ocaml, of course) ?
The lack of IF games in french is frustrating. Plus, I guess it would
be really fun to write such a game in Ocaml, given that current IF
systems are half-baked, improvised languages.

In particular, natural language processing routines for french
(parsing/unparsing) would be needed.

2) Ocaml tracing (with Camlp4)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Basile Starynkevitch announced:

Dear All,

A big thanks to Alain Frisch, John Malecki, and Daniel de Rauglaudre  
for their help.

I finally managed to write a tracing preprocessor.

You can get it thru CVS, eg at
