Original bug ID: 4019
Reporter: jrouquie
Status: closed (set by @damiendoligez on 2012-09-11T14:45:59Z)
Resolution: fixed
Priority: normal
Severity: text
Version: 3.09.0
Target version: 4.00.1+dev
Category: documentation
Monitored by: jrouquie

Bug description

The documentation of Str.matched_string says "matched_string s returns the substring of s that was matched by the latest Str.string_match, Str.search_forward or Str.search_backward."

It should says "matched_string s returns the substring of s that was matched by the latest Str.string_match, Str.search_forward, Str.search_backward or Str.global_substitute."

Other functions of the Str module are probably to be added to the list.


#load "str.cma"
let r = Str.regexp "\([a-z]\)\([A-Z]\)"
let subst line =
let s = Str.matched_string line in
assert (String.length s = 2);
Printf.sprintf "%c_%c" s.[0] (Char.lowercase s.[1])
Str.global_substitute r subst "camlCase and caml_style"


  • : string = "caml_case and caml_style"
