OCaml Tutorials and Summary
Since winning the ICFP contest c.l.functional has seen a lot of OCaml discussion, including pointers to:

It's probably also worth repeating links to two earlier Lambda items on online ML resources here and here.

At the risk of stating the obvious, I only included links that didn't seem to be available from the main OCaml home page!

Thanks for the links. I'm in the middle of reading a bunch of ML stuff at the moment, so it's relevant to what I'm currently looking at.

O'Caml looks great but I really need to figure out SML before I get into O'Caml just so I can see where it's coming from. I looked at O'Caml one time before and knew Haskell just well enuf to get by. I also knew OO fairly well, so the OO part wasn't too difficult.

Still, I always wonder if cross-languages like Ruby (Python & Perl), Mercury (Prolog & FP) and Objective-C (C & Smalltalk) don't really require that you understand the other languages/paradigms first before diving into the mixture.
