Subject: Duplicate functionality?
I've had extensive programming experience with C/Lex/Yacc/SML, some user's
exposure to the SML module system, and a little Java programming experience,
but I'm new to OCaml and didn't follow the OCaml Introduction's Objects
subtleties.  Would people please recommend documents, preferably on-line,
that would explain the issues and intended uses for me?


My biggest initial question is why OCaml has both a modules system and
objects: Aren't they different ways of accomplishing the same things?
