Subject: [Caml-list] Is Caml good for embedded systems?

I wonder if anybody attempted to use Caml (or any of its variants) to program
embedded systems?

The main obstacle, as I see it, is a rather poor arithmetic. It seems that the
only directly supported numerical type is 31-bit integers. Everything else
(floats, 32-bit integers, fixed-point integers) has to go via pointers.

By the way, has anybody implemented a library for fixed-point arithmetic?
