Subject: [Caml-list] Are map and iter guaranteed to be called in forwards order?

Are the map and iter[1] functions guaranteed to be called in the
expected order?  In other words will this always produce the same
result:

# let i = ref 0 ;;
val i : int ref = {contents = 0}
# let xs = List.map (fun _ -> incr i; !i) [ 1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1 ];;
val xs : int list = [1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8]

Rich.

[1] From List, for example, but could equally apply to the other
library modules.
