Subject: [Caml-list] Stupid question about the toplevel

An example toplevel experience:
$ ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.07
# 3+4;;
- : int = 7

So what's the "-" at the begining of the line mean?  Originally I thought 
it meant that the input came from stdin, but I've been unable to change it 
to anything else.  Is it just "this line comes from the toplevel and not 
your code"?

It's bugging me now.

difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of
mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it."
