Well, in the meantime, we've ported most of the pickling library from SML.NET to work with O'Caml. Supports most of the basic types (int,bool,char,string,list,array,unit,pairs->sextuples) and a few combinators (alttag, wrap, lift,seq). Fairly easy to define a pickler: module BytePickle = Pickle.CorePickle(Pickle.ByteCodec) open BytePickle let pickler = pair (string list,int) let data = pickle pickler (["hello";"world"],-1) let value = unpickle pickler (List.rev data) Files at http://devnulled.ath.cx/svn/dst/trunk/kernel/pickle.ml & http://devnulled.ath.cx/svn/dst/trunk/kernel/pickle.mli

I took some of my code for implicit surface drawing from a while back, tidied it up and decided to release it. It's based on J. Blooms polygonizer. I'm working on organising my site, so it's only described in following blog post. Hopefully it'll have it's own page soon. http://www.morbid-incantations.co.uk/node/2 Direct download http://www.morbid-incantations.co.uk/files/sucellos.tar.gz
