Module Misc
val fatal_error : string -> 'a
val fatal_errorf : ( 'a, Format.formatter, unit, 'b ) format4 -> 'a
exception Fatal_error
val try_finally : ( unit -> 'a ) -> ( unit -> unit ) -> 'a

val replicate_list : 'a -> int -> 'a list
val list_remove : 'a -> 'a list -> 'a list
val split_last : 'a list -> 'a list * 'a
val may : ( 'a -> unit ) -> 'a option -> unit

type ref_and_value =
| R : 'a ref * 'a -> ref_and_value
val protect_refs : ref_and_value list -> ( unit -> 'a ) -> 'a

protect_refs l f temporarily sets r to v for each R (r, v) in l while executing f. The previous contents of the references is restored even if f raises an exception.

val edit_distance : string -> string -> int -> int option

edit_distance a b cutoff computes the edit distance between strings a and b. To help efficiency, it uses a cutoff: if the distance d is smaller than cutoff, it returns Some d, else None.

The distance algorithm currently used is Damerau-Levenshtein: it computes the number of insertion, deletion, substitution of letters, or swapping of adjacent letters to go from one word to the other. The particular algorithm may change in the future.

val spellcheck : string list -> string -> string list

spellcheck env name takes a list of names env that exist in the current environment and an erroneous name, and returns a list of suggestions taken from env, that are close enough to name that it may be a typo for one of them.

val did_you_mean : Format.formatter -> ( unit -> string list ) -> unit

did_you_mean ppf get_choices hints that the user may have meant one of the option returned by calling get_choices. It does nothing if the returned list is empty.

The unit -> ... thunking is meant to delay any potentially-slow computation (typically computing edit-distance with many things from the current environment) to when the hint message is to be printed. You should print an understandable error message before calling did_you_mean, so that users get a clear notification of the failure even if producing the hint is slow.

val cut_at : string -> char -> string * string

String.cut_at s c returns a pair containing the sub-string before the first occurrence of c in s, and the sub-string after the first occurrence of c in s. let (before, after) = String.cut_at s c in before ^ String.make 1 c ^ after is the identity if s contains c.

Raise Not_found if the character does not appear in the string

  • since 4.01
module StringSet : Set.S with type elt = string
module StringMap : Map.S with type key = string
module Color : sig ... end
val normalise_eol : string -> string

normalise_eol s returns a fresh copy of s with any '\r' characters removed. Intended for pre-processing text which will subsequently be printed on a channel which performs EOL transformations (i.e. Windows)

val delete_eol_spaces : string -> string

delete_eol_spaces s returns a fresh copy of s with any end of line spaces removed. Intended to normalize the output of the toplevel for tests.

Hook machinery

Hooks machinery: add_hook name f will register a function that will be called on the argument of a later call to apply_hooks. Hooks are applied in the lexicographical order of their names.

type hook_info = {
sourcefile : string;
}
exception HookExnWrapper of {
error : exn;
hook_name : string;
hook_info : hook_info;
}

An exception raised by a hook will be wrapped into a HookExnWrapper constructor by the hook machinery.

val raise_direct_hook_exn : exn -> 'a

A hook can use raise_unwrapped_hook_exn to raise an exception that will not be wrapped into a HookExnWrapper.
