Subject: Ant: Re: [Caml-list] Avoiding shared data
Hello William,

I am using a mutable record. I am programming this 90%
in the imperative (non-functional) style, so that I
can rewrite critical parts into Fortran easily.
Another reason is, I am an intermediate user and
finding out whether the recursion is a tail-one or not
is difficult for me. This is a kind of number
crunching problem and the data structures will be
huge.

Blessed are the creators of OCaml for the inclusion of
all imperative constructs.
