Subject: Simple factorial
Hello,

I've just started learning O'Caml. I've written a simple factorial  
function (no checking whether n is 1 etc.):

let rec factorial n =
	n * factorial (n-1);;

When I call this function with let's say 5 as an argument, I get an  
overflow error message.

Any ideas?
