The ` character to the rescue

Created: 8 Oct 2007

I have presented, during the Journées Francophones des Langages Applicatifs 2008, an article entitled Le caractère ` à la rescousse - Factorisation et réutilisation de code grâce aux variants polymorphes ("The ` character to the rescue - Code factorization and reuse using polymorphic variants", but the article is only available in french for the moment). It provides a hopefully gentle introduction to polymorphic variants, a feature of the typing system of OCaml.

Here is the source code of the examples: introduction, section 2, section 3 and section 4.

The abstract and the BibTeX entry can be found on my publications page.

Three different presentations of this work are available (all three are in french)
