Subject: [Caml-list] OCaml for system programming?
Hello OCaml Community!

Is it reasonable to use OCaml for (low-level) system programming?
I have implemented some tools for filesystem maintenance
(things like resizing, ...) in C. As a challenging exercise
(for an OCaml newbie) I planned to reimplement my tools in
OCaml. But I don't know if it is managable at all!!

It would be interesting (at least for me) to know if one can
do things like file system implementation in OCaml?
