Original bug ID: 6648
Reporter: @lpw25
Assigned to: @garrigue
Status: closed (set by @xavierleroy on 2016-12-07T10:36:53Z)
Resolution: fixed
Priority: normal
Severity: minor
Fixed in version: 4.03.0+dev / +beta1
Category: ~DO NOT USE (was: OCaml general)
Monitored by: @gasche @hcarty

Bug description

The show_module directive does not fully print the types of nested modules. This is reasonable, but it also does not indicate that it has left out anything which is confusing. For example:

# module M = struct module N = struct let x = 1 end end;;
module M : sig module N : sig val x : int end end

# #show_module M;;
module M : sig module N : sig  end end

Here the x value is simply left out of the type, with no indication that there was anything there.

It should probably print ... or similar whenever something has been left out. So the above would be:

# #show_module M;;
module M : sig module N : sig ... end end

Fixed in trunk at revision 15573.
(Do not fix in 4.02 as we need to modify outcometree.)
