You still can use the (undocumented because unsafe) Obj module of the
standard distribution. This enable you to recursivly scan ocaml blocks :

let rec print_ints x =
    let r = Obj.repr x in
    match Obj.is_int r with
    | true -> Printf.sprintf "%d" (Obj.magic x : int)
    | false -> (* recursivly print fields from 0 to (Obj.size r)-1 *) ...

val print_ints : 'a -> unit
