Yes, that's true. A substantial part of the search application on is written in OCaml. This includes mostly offline components
like the crawler, the parsers, some distributed storage systems, but
also the so-called abstract server which operates directly behind the
frontend and coordinates the various backend systems that must work
together to do a search. Summed up around 120,000 lines of
application-specific code (just counted with wc).
