Summary0000986: [ Bug#137776: ocaml: Typo in usr/docs/ocaml/docs/ocaml.html/manual017.html]
DescriptionHello, ...

This is a bug report from a debian english speaking user against the ocaml-doc
package which contains the ocaml manual.

The bugreport is falsely labeled as against the ocaml package, but the patched
file is in the ocaml-doc package and part of the reference manual.

I am not enough strong in english to really know if this is a correct
correction, so i simply forward this to you, in hope that it may prove
usefull, please tell me (or rather remi vanicat <>) if this is
a correct correction.
