Standard Library

Below is the API for the OCaml standard library. It's directly copied over from the OCaml Manual, formatted to the Reason syntax and styled accordingly. The API docs are work-in-progress; we'll be polishing these gradually!

If you're targeting JavaScript, the API docs for BuckleScript includes all of below, plus JS-specific APIs.

Module Location

module Location: sig .. end
An arbitrary value of type t; describes an empty ghost range.

type t = {
   loc_start : Lexing.position;
   loc_end : Lexing.position;
   loc_ghost : bool;
let none: t;
An arbitrary value of type t; describes an empty ghost range.
let in_file: string => t;
Return an empty ghost range located in a given file.
let init: Lexing.lexbuf => string => unit;
Set the file name and line number of the lexbuf to be the start of the named file.
let curr: Lexing.lexbuf => t;
Get the location of the current token from the lexbuf.
let symbol_rloc: unit => t;
let symbol_gloc: unit => t;
let rhs_loc: int => t;
rhs_loc n returns the location of the symbol at position n, starting at 1, in the current parser rule.
