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 Oo

module Oo: sig .. end
Operations on objects

let copy: ({..} as 'a) => 'a;
Oo.copy o returns a copy of object o, that is a fresh object with the same methods and instance variables as o.
let id: {..} => int;
Return an integer identifying this object, unique for the current execution of the program. The generic comparison and hashing functions are based on this integer. When an object is obtained by unmarshaling, the id is refreshed, and thus different from the original object. As a consequence, the internal invariants of data structures such as hash table or sets containing objects are broken after unmarshaling the data structures.
