Subject: [Caml-list] toplevel printing of polymorphic values

-- 
Hello,

I have written a double ended queue and I would like to install a pretty printer in the toplevel.  Just being able to print an 'a Dequeue.t like an 'a list would be fine.

I understand how to use the Format module to get the box, print the delimeters, etc.  The part I don't understand is how to get back to the generic 'a printer.  I cannot see any polypmorphic methods in all of the Format module.  What I want to access seems to be implemented in:

ocaml_source/toplevel/genprintval.ml:

    (* The main printing function *)

    let outval_of_value max_steps max_depth check_depth env obj ty =

Though if it is exposed, I'm sure it is in some other form.  Is what I'm trying to do possible?
