|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003921: structural equality for cyclic data structure cannot be interrupted|
|Description||In the interactive toplevel of ocaml, the "infinite loop"|
let rec x = 1 :: x in x = x
cannot be interrupted by Ctrl-C _despite_ the following paragraph in
Chapter 9 of the manual:
> At any point, the parsing, compilation or evaluation of the current
> phrase can be interrupted by pressing ctrl-C (or, more precisely, by
> sending the INTR signal to the ocaml process). The toplevel then
> immediately returns to the # prompt.
The problem reproduces on any UNIX system to which I have access.

By the way, the behavior of *not* checking == first in = seems to have been adopted in recent versions of ocaml, but its implications are not quite well-documented in the "Changes" file (though the manual seems to be up to date).

Maybe we could poll for signals, but there are subtleties.
