Subject: [Caml-list] BigArray's Implementation
Why is it necessary to do so much of the BigArray management in C? You have
a perfectly good language for assuring that things go correctly, in OCaml. I
see no declaration of BigArray structure in the OCaml Library code (the ML
part), and huge reliance on C subroutines for mundane things like array
bounds checking, accessing dimensions, and so on. The only part that seems
reasonable as a candidate for C code is the underlying Get and Set with
mutation of representation, e.g., single-float to OCaml double-float
representation and back...
