Subject: [Caml-list] Suggestion: Pervasives.identity
Hello,

Is there a good why there is no predefined identity function?
(fun x -> x) is sometimes less readable, and seems to be not
compiled (yet?) as this black magic:
external identity : 'a -> 'a : "%identity"

In the same style, we already have Pervasives.ignore, so why not
Pervasives.identity?


Martin
