first of all thanks for the replies, and for not misunderstanding my email.

i dont want to go into a which-programming-language-is-best-for-what discussion (as this will never end), but at this point i wanted to know if ocaml is still alive, i.e. if you can still easily download and install it on a variety of OS, and if it will be supported in the future. i am working on an open-source project, so beside your arguments (which of course are valid), it is also important if people who decide not to download the binaries, but rather download the source, will be able to compile it. for me personally, i just like functional programming, and i like to learn new stuff from time to time. and to be honest, i am very happy to have found applications in the project which i can use a reason to include a functional programming language in the code :)

so, thanks for your replies. i am confident again, and will continue to use ocaml.
