I guess I should clarify: I'm aware that FFTW is written using Ocaml,
but I'm under the impression that the part written in Ocaml is a code
generator that makes C code (not unlike Faust, actually). Someone please
correct me if this is wrong.
What I'm really curious about is if anyone ever managed to make a
plug-in or other music-DSP-type program in Ocaml. Thank you!
