memcpy

Safe and efficient copying between blocks of memory.
Description

There are several ways of storing and accessing blocks of memory in an OCaml program, including

  • bytes and string values for mutable and immutable strings that reside in the OCaml heap
  • bigarray values for reference-counted blocks that reside in the OCaml heaps
  • Ctypes ptr values that can be used to address arbitrary addresses using typed descriptions of the memory layout.
  • Ctypes array values that provide bounds-checked access to ptr-addressed memory.

The Memcpy module provides functions for safely and efficiently copying blocks of memory between these different representations.
