Generally you don't need them. Here is an example: in C:

struct ilist { list *next; int v; };

In Ocaml:

type ilist = Cons of int * ilist | Empty

The * there means 'tuple' not pointer, in Ocaml
everything except an int is already a pointer.

exception Exit
The Exit exception is not raised by any library function. It is provided
for use in your programs.

isspace is easy to implement:

let isspace = function
| ' ' | '\t' -> true
| _ -> false
