Subject: Which syntax to teach ?
   Hello list,

 In a few months, I'll start teaching OCaml for the second consecutive
year. I'll solve a number of my problems by installing Linux on the
workstations, although I'm pretty sure that will cause no end of
complaints from the students when they need to continue their work at

 Right now, however, that's not the issue. I'm just wondering if I
should prepare my lectures and exercises using the Original syntax or
the Revised syntax. The latest looks clearer and possibly easier to
teach but requires additional command-line arguments to ocamlc and I'm
not sure I'll be able to find an editor that will display that syntax

 Any suggestions or experiences ?
