Subject: Re: [Caml-list] *s ignored on windows gui
Here is some output from my recently applied changes:

# print_string "**e";;
**e- : unit = ()
# print_char '*';;
*- : unit = ()
# print_char '\t';;
- : unit = ()
# 
  
  
  print_char '*';;
   *- : unit = ()
# 

Note the crappy leading space if you use lots of lines.... I'm not
sure how I should go about checking for things like that. The old code
removed all whilespace leading the output (and those *'s, hehe sorry).

Is the desired functionality leaving the output intact? If so the
above looks like this:

# print_string "**e";;
**e- : unit = ()
# print_char '*';;
*- : unit = ()
# print_char '\t';;
	- : unit = ()
# 
  
  
  
  print_char '*';;
      *- : unit = ()
# 

With only a bunch of leading white space when you use more than 1
line. Should I have it detect and remove 1 space for each extra line?
The reality of what goes on is accurately shown below:

# 

print_char '*';;
*- : unit = ()
# 

Note I used no indentation between lines, and no indentation appeared
in my output. I think it would require a bit of extra work, but I
might could finagle keeping track of indentation for removal in the
output.
