Hoogle for your language (i.e. F#, Scala, ML, Clean...)


Continuing the thread from last week, Thomas Braibant asked and Fabrice Le Fessant replied:

And the page itself points to:

"OCaml API search allows you to search many standard O'Caml libraries by
either function name, or by approximate type signature. It is similar to
Hoogle, which is a Haskell API search engine."

All code is in OCaml.

Sylvain Le Gall announced:
For the fourth time, I am proud to invite all OCaml enthusiasts to join
us at OCaml Meeting 2011 in Paris.

This year event takes place in Paris on Friday 15th April 2011.
Registration is opened now and will be closed on Friday 8th April 2011.

As last year, participants are invited to give a talk on what they are
doing with OCaml, submit a description of your talk on the wiki or
contact me.

The meeting is sponsored by the INRIA CAML Consortium and organized by
OCamlCore SARL. Participation for lunch is covered by the Consortium,
you just need to subscribe. The facility can only host 70 people, so we
will have to filter the list of participants if there are more people.
We will give priority to people giving a talk and coming from abroad.

__At the date of this post, only 40 places remain.__

For people who need further information, you can contact me (see the
wiki for contact details).
