Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Problem in modifying a mutable element in an array
Hello,

Your "problem" is due to the fact that when you use the function make_vect m agent_init, Caml creates an array where all element are pointing at the same object which is agent_init : in your whole program, there is only one instance of agent_init in memory.

I think that the only solution is to make the initilization of f by hand :

let agent_init () = { initial = 0 ; courant = 0 ; longueur = 0.; liste_parcourue = [] ; à_visiter = make_vect n 1 } ;;

let f = make_vect m (agent_init ());;

for i = 0 to ((vect_length f)-1)
do
f.(i) <- agent_init ()
done

The use of a function which takes a unit argument is important because each time you call it, it returns a NEW record.

I hope this helps.

Samuel.
