Subject: RE: [Caml-list] A syntax extension to simplify List manipulation
Hi All,

I've updated this extension to remove the dependency on ExtLib (as suggested
previously). The price is that iteratei is not available with the core List
module.

If you do need iteratei, first uncomment the 

# WITH_ITERATEI = 1

line in the Makefile (and do a fresh build), and, second, always

open ExtLib;;

The tarball is: http://www.voinov.org/FP/spbSyntax-1.0.1.tgz

(and also http://www.voinov.org/FP/spbSyntax.tgz)

Regarding camlp4, I don't remember why this extension didn't work with it
after that big refactoring, which gave birth to camlp5. I'm making a TODO
for myself to take a look at this.

Thank you!

Alexander

You can do this if you want to use the stdlib instead of extlib:

     module Extlib = struct module List = List end;;

Rather ugly, but it should work...
