Subject: [Caml-list] Why does ocaml use custom buffering?
I was wondering why the OCaml runtime implements its
own buffering on channel operations (in "byterun/io.c")
instead of using the standard "FILE*" operations in C?

Is there a particular reason (like performance), or is
it just an historic artifact?

All the best,
