In the micmatch tutorial, I give this example, which should parse the
version string correctly (or abort):

# Sys.ocaml_version;;
- : string = "3.08.3"
# RE num = digit+;;
# let / (num as major : int)
        "." (num as minor : int)

        ("." (num as patchlevel := fun s -> Some (int_of_string s))
        | ("" as patchlevel = None))

        ("+" (_* as additional_info := fun s -> Some s)
        | ("" as additional_info = None))

        eos / = Sys.ocaml_version
;;
val additional_info : string option = None
val major : int = 3
val minor : int = 8
val patchlevel : int option = Some 3
