Subject: New Introductory book (in German) using Caml light

Algorithmen -- Datenstrukturen -- Funktionale Programmierung -
 Eine praktische     Einf|hrung mit Caml-Light,
 Juergen Wolff v. Gudenberg,
 Addison-Wesley, Bonn 1996 

About the book:
The design of algorithms, their implementation and the handling of
 data structures belong to the basic tools of each computer scientist.

This book gives an introduction where algorithms as well as data structures
 are considered functionally. It is intended as an accompanying book
 for basic courses in computer science,
 but it is also suitable for self-studies.

In the first part the algorithms are concisely and precisely  designed
 using  Caml Light as a kind of pseudo code. The main ideas are thus not
concealed by a lot of details.
As an additional advantage the pseudo code describes complete programs
 and the designs are directly executable.
In this manner the reader becomes familar with functional programming.

The second part provides a tutorial introduction into the language Caml Light
and in its last chapter a comprehensive description of the language kernel.

Caml Light is an easily portable, typed, functional language
 which is interpreted but may also be compiled if neccessary.
There is a considerable amount of interesting application modules.

The sample programs for all algorithms mentioned in the book are freely 
available as well as the system itself.
