Subject: [Caml-list] code duplication when abstracting using explicit signatures
I'm trying to avoid code duplication, but have a very simple case where it
seems inescapable utilitizing only the functionality of the ocaml tools.  In
example.mli, I declare several large types, in which I want the full contents
of the types to be visible to other modules.  How do I avoid duplicating those
full definitions in example.ml?  I've tried using "include Example" at the
beginning of example.ml, which ocamlopt has no argument with, but ocamlc gives:

Error while linking example.cmo: Reference to undefined global `Example'


I can't simply skip the .mli, as there are functions in example.ml that
I don't want exported; not to meantion the clean-ness of seperation .mli's
provide.  Any suggestions?

Thanks.
