Subject: Re: [Caml-list] ipv6, any news?

I've make some works this summer, trying to respect basic sockets RFC.
It's based on Unix module from ocaml-3.06.

it's early works, but feedbacks would be nice.

Basic API is now a standard, and i've test on FreeBSD and Linux.
Indeed, i can see some differences in constant for socket options
and DNS request :

hope it helps
