Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Modules
I'd also add :
- the "formal" part of the manual (Part II) description of module
types : http://caml.inria.fr/pub/docs/manual-ocaml/manual018.html . In
particular the "Type specifications" section is quite informative
imho.
- the module-related chapter of the "UUU book" :
http://caml.inria.fr/pub/docs/u3-ocaml/ocaml-modules.html

If you're interested in theory, you can find an introduction to the ML
Module system theory in the Pierce's book "Advanced topic in Types and
Programming Languages" [1], and a some more advanced papers in the "A
Few Paper On Caml" section of this website :
