I'd like to recomend the following:

Xavier Leroy. Programmation du système Unix en Caml Light.
Technical report 147, INRIA, 1992. (Available by anonymous FTP on
A Unix systems programming course, demonstrating the use of the Caml Light
that gives access to Unix system calls.

You will find very good Caml Light source about Files, Processes, IPC,

Unfortunatily for me, it's not written by English.
Any news about English version?
