I hate programming but I must. Actually thats a bit strong. I hate programming unnessarily. Physical relationships with mathematical structures interest me. C++ does not lend itself well to elegant and thorough exploration of mathematical concepts. Thus it is not suprising that I have found my way to the Great joy and beautiful language that is OCaml.

But yeah, there is no proper IDE for it though :(. Does anyone know of one? I have settled on Eclipse for now. Also, because I do not have Visual Studio I cannot use F#. ARRrrr

Oh yeah, anything that goes over using OpenGL with OCaml?

Emacs has a great OCaml mode called Tuareg. In particular, it will display the inferred types of subexpressions - great for type error hunting.

You should be able to use F# without VS. Indeed, Don assures me you can use F# without Windows, using Mono.

If you mean books describing how to use OpenGL from OCaml then my book (OCaml for Scientists) has a chapter on it.

Cheers,
