Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Type Safety comes to the iPad
Wow! This seems hugely interesting to me.
Actually I've been wondering a while to know if I would buy an ipad,  
and my conclusion was "only if I can do Ocaml on it".
Can you report a bit more on your experience ?
Which tools did you use? How convenient it is? What drawback did you  
encounter?

Cheers,
Vincent
