Basic module stuff

module Empty : sig ... end

A plain, empty module

module type Empty : sig ... end

An ambiguous, misnamed module type

module type MissingComment : sig ... end

An ambiguous, misnamed module type

Level 9000
module EmptyAlias = Empty

A plain module alias of Empty

EmptySig

module type EmptySig : sig ... end

A plain, empty module signature

module type EmptySigAlias = EmptySig

A plain, empty module signature alias of

module ModuleWithSignature : EmptySig

A plain module of a signature of EmptySig (reference)

module ModuleWithSignatureAlias : EmptySigAlias

A plain module with an alias signature

module One : sig ... end
module type SigForMod : sig ... end

There's a signature in a module in this signature.

module type SuperSig : sig ... end

For a good time, see A Labeled Section Header Inside of a Signature or Another Labeled Section Header Inside of a Signature or SuperSig.EmptySig. Section Level 9000 is also interesting. EmptySig is a general reference but EmptySig is the section and EmptySig is the module signature.

module Buffer : sig ... end

Buffer.t

Some text before exception title.

Basic exception stuff

After exception title.

exception Kaboom of unit

Unary exception constructor

exception Kablam of unit * unit

Binary exception constructor

exception Kapow of unit * unit

Unary exception constructor over binary tuple

exception EmptySig

EmptySig is general but EmptySig is a module and EmptySig is this exception.

exception EmptySigAlias

EmptySigAlias is this exception.

Basic type and value stuff with advanced doc comments

type ('a, 'b) a_function = 'a ‑> 'b

a_function is general but a_function is this type and a_function is the value below.

val a_function : x:int ‑> int

This is a_function with param and return type.

val fun_fun_fun : ((int, int) a_function, (unit, unit) a_functiona_function
val fun_maybe : ?⁠yes:unit ‑> unit ‑> int
val not_found : unit ‑> unit
val ocaml_org : string
val some_file : string
val some_doc : string
val since_mesozoic : unit

This value was introduced in the Mesozoic era.

val changing : unit

This value has had changes in 1.0.0, 1.1.0, and 1.2.0.

val with_foo : unit

This value has a custom tag foo.

Some Operators

val (~-) : unit
val (!) : unit
val (@) : unit
val ($) : unit
val (%) : unit
val (^) : unit
val (&) : unit
val (*) : unit
val (-) : unit
val (+) : unit
val (<) : unit
val (>) : unit

Trying the {!modules: ...} command.

With ocamldoc, toplevel units will be linked and documented, while submodules will behave as simple references.

With odoc, everything should be resolved (and linked) but only toplevel units will be documented.
