The object oriented part of OCaml is roughly speaking
just as capable as that of Python, C++, Java, C# etc.

You get a nice overview in these 4 online books:

1. O'Reilly book on OCaml
at http://caml.inria.fr/pub/docs/oreilly-book/

2. Jason Hickey's tutorial
3. Merjis tutorial by Rich Jones
4. a little more advanced treatise by Didier Rémy
- these 3 and others at
http://pauillac.inria.fr/caml/tutorials-eng.html

Have fun!


Regards,

Martin
