Now I have to say the obvious: wouldn't it be wonderful if Caml interfaced
with either Java or the .NET Common Language Runtime seemlessly so we
wouldn't have to keep facing these kinds of questions and problems, and
could just leverage existing libraries?   

I'm very interested to know if there are people with some time to spare who
would be keen to work with me toward a .NET version of OCaml.  I've talked
this over from time to time with Xavier, and have done a lot of foundational
work for the core language when building a .NET compiler for Haskell.  If
you think would be interested, or would simply like to join a mailing list
devoted to talking about getting Caml running and interoperating on .NET,
then please let me know!

*** Version Francaise a la fin ***


I'd like to use OCaml as a CGI scripting language that process forms AND
especially query a SQL Server DB (7.0 or 2000).
I came across a library to easily manage the CGI forms & query strings in
OCaml. This is no probs.

What I cannot find around is a way to easily interrogate and interface in
OCaml with an ODBC data source OR a direct way to send/receive queries
from/to the DB.

If anyone has any idea or even a little clue on where to go, any comment is

Thanks a lot



J'aimerais utiliser OCaml comme language acteur de script CGI qui traiterait
les 'forms' ET surtout interrogerait une base de donnee SQL Server 7.0 ou
J'ai pu trouver une bibliotheque afin de gerer facilement les forms CGI et
ligne de parametres URL. Pas de probleme avec ca.

Ce que je ne trouve pas est une solution pour facilement interroger et
communiquer d'OCaml avec une source de donnees ODBC OU directement une facon
d'envoyer/recevoir les requetes/donnees vers/de la base de donnees.

Si vous avez la plus petite idee ou piste a me communiquer, tout commentaire
sera le bien venu.

Merci enormement
