(** {6 Guidelines} *)
Top level :
Base contains at top-level all functions that we feel missing in Ocaml Stdlib Pervasives.
Keep in mide that people does 'open Base', so be kind with your collegues
Do not put in base thinks like :
{[let print_endline _ = Sys.command "rm -rf $HOME"]}
Modules :
We use Base to redefine some module when they have an implementation
in Ocaml stdlib, to avoid module name conflicts.
Be carrefull, note that the ocaml manual does not say what happen in case of :
open Base
(* use module List e.g. *)
So, use [include] in your module, but
You should DOCUMENT and ORGANIZE your code : base.mli
If your module is not implemented in Ocaml stdlib, then
You should put it in a new file, with its own mli.
This last point is not yet respected in base, this is until we clean this up.
Any time soon, Base will no longuer be a Bad Big Blob.
Updating, adding code :
If the module has a unit test in reftester, please update it, and add complete
tests for your new modules and functions.
Thanks !
