Summary0003836: [wish] ocamlwinplus should be replaced (perhaps by camlbrowser?)
DescriptionFull_Name: Eijiro Sumii
Version: 3.09.0
OS: Windows XP Professional
Submission from: (

ocamlwinplus (both 1.9RC4 and 1.9RC5) is just _too_ buggy:

- It misreads almost anything from stdin (by read_line and such).

- When I copy-and-paste almost anything with more than 1 lines,
  ocamlwinplus reads only part of it.

- It often crashes suddenly and arbitrarily. I can't even get this
  problem reproduced...

On the other hand, the interactive session of camlbrowser seems to
work _much_ better. So, why not replace the former with the latter
(or something similar)?

Of course, we can avoid using ocamlwinplus at all, but far too many
beginners (such as new students) are caught by its problems.

Further bug reports and (even better!) proposed patches should be submitted on this site.
