Subject: [Caml-list] nlffi-style foreign interface for ocaml?
Hi, everyone.

I recently read Matthias Blume's paper about the NLFFI foreign interface for
SML/NJ (  NLFFI encodes
the C type system in ML using phantom types.  Then, with some compiler
extensions for dealing with C values, an ML program has direct access to
native C functions and data.

I like the design of NLFFI, and I was wondering if anyone has considered
implementing something similar for ocaml.
