The new V3.1 (strong) version of the CAML functional programming language
is now freely available by anonymous ftp from [].

CAML is a language belonging to the ML family including:

                lexical binding discipline
                static type inference
                user-defined (sum and product) types
                possibly lazy data structures
                possibly mutable data structures
                interface with the Yacc parser generator
                pretty-printing tools
                and a complete library.

The distribution does not include the documentation yet.

Previous version of the documentation may help and is available as INRIA
tech-reports (number 121 et 122).

Currently, the archive contains ports to the following machines:

                Sun3 (OS3 and OS4)
                Sony News 68k
                Sony R3000
                Dec Stations 3100 and 5000
                MacIntosh A/UX
                Apollo 68k

This is what you obtain after login (user anonymous, any passwd):
ftp> cd lang/caml/V3.1
250 CWD command successful.

Then get and read the README.FIRST file.
Changes from the preceeding version are summarized in the CHANGES file.

Any suggestion or installation problem should be reported to
