Linkage dump

From Daring Fireball:

Typographica has some discussion on a new serifed typeface Gina.

I wish I had known about, OcaIDE, a very promising Eclipse plugin for OCaml before starting the ICFP Programming Contest. If nothing else, it would have saved a bunch of time looking up standard library functions on the web.

    And how about looking up standard library functions in the reference manual supplied with the OCaml?

    By the way, have you tried ocamlbrowser — it can show types of the standard library functions.

    On the whole it is more of an issue about having to switch away from emacs (my current editor of choice) than whether the documentation is local or remote. Especially when all I need to know is the order of the arguments.

    I’ve played with ocamlbrowser, but I didn’t see any way to have it provide me with the documentation for a module/function, something that OcaIDE seems to do. Finally, I have to admit that I have a bit of an aversion to Tk GUIs.

    One of your neighbors posted something that may interest you in Language Log a couple days ago: http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/004758.html
