The object oriented part of OCaml is roughly speaking
just as capable as that of Python, C++, Java, C# etc.

You get a nice overview in these 4 online books:

1. O'Reilly book on OCaml

2. Jason Hickey's tutorial
3. Merjis tutorial by Rich Jones
4. a little more advanced treatise by Didier Rémy
- these 3 and others at

Have fun!
