Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Currying in Ocaml

Let's start up the commuting labels discussion again!!!


I think you have to eta-expand:

(fun t d -> print_all d t)

I don't think there's a flip f x y = f y x in the pervasives library (why not, by the way, INRIA folks?), but it seems to be a common idiom, like fst and snd.

As for overhead, "Assume Nothing," as they say.  Try eta-expanding and let us know if you see a performance problem.
