[Version anglaise]
Bigloo, a new optimizing Caml compiler is now available by anonymous ftp from (, directory lang/caml-light, file

Bigloo is bootstrapped and fully compliant with the Caml Light 0.6
compiler and the Caml Light libraries (including camlyacc, camllex).
It can be considered as an alternative to the regular camlc compiler.
In particular, it has successfully compiled many complex Caml Light
programs, including camlc and the Coq system (the ``calculus of
constructions'', a proof assistant).

Bigloo is running on the following unix platforms:
- SPARC (1, 2, 10) under Bsd and Solaris 2.xx
- SONY-NEWS (mips r3000)
- IRIS indigo (mips r3000)
- SUN 3/60
- DEC Station 3100 (mips r3000)
- HP-PA (730)
- PC-linux (i486)

To install and use Bigloo, you need an ANSI C compiler.
