Subject: [Caml-list] Bitwise negation operator?

Is there a bitwise negation operator I'm just missing?  I'm looking for 
the equivelent of C's ~ operator.  In Ocaml, it would have type int->int.  
In two's complement, I can implement this as either

let lneg x = (-x) - 1


let lneg x = x lxor -1

I dislike depending upon being two's complement for bitwise negation.
