Yaron Minsky announced:
For those who are interested, I just posted a video of a talk I gave at CMU
several weeks ago about Jane Street's use of OCaml. This is an updated version
of the talk I gave at POPL last year. Various people have expressed an
interest in showing the talk to their undergraduate classes, so I thought it

Jim Miller asked and Yaron Minsky replied:

Using folding to read the cwn in vim 6+

Here is a quick trick to help you read this CWN if you are viewing it using vim (version 6 or greater).

:set foldmethod=expr
:set foldexpr=getline(v:lnum)=~'^=\\{78}$'?'<1':1

If you know of a better way, please let me know.
