    Question

    hi,

    i was wondering wether anyone has heard of a programming language called ML, i have a book called ML for the working programmer and i was wondering weather anyone had any information on it.


    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    It looks like a nice Object Oriented Programming language,it also looks like it has a lot of math capabilities too... but I can't seem to find what it stands for.

    The definition is.....

    What is ML?

    ML (which stands for Meta-Language) is a family of advanced programming
    languages with [usually] functional control structures, strict semantics,
    a strict polymorphic type system, and parametrized modules. It includes
    Standard ML, Lazy ML, CAML, CAML Light, and various research languages.
    Implementations are available on many platforms, including PCs, mainframes,
    most models of workstation, multi-processors and supercomputers. ML has
    many thousands of users, is taught at many universities (and is the first
    programming language taught at some).
