A lightweight, modular standard library extension, string library, and interfaces to various libraries (bigarrays, unix, etc.) BSD license.


Current documentation

Containers is an extension of OCaml’s standard library (under BSD license) focused on data structures, combinators and iterators, without dependencies on unix, str or num. Every module is independent and is prefixed with ‘CC’ in the global namespace. Some modules extend the stdlib (e.g. CCList provides safe map/fold_right/append, and additional functions on lists). Alternatively, open Containers will bring enhanced versions of the standard modules into scope.

The README contains a tutorial and more explanations about what Containers is about.
