Down v0.0.1

Down is an unintrusive user experience upgrade for the ocaml toplevel (REPL).

Simply load the zero dependency Down library in the ocaml toplevel and you get line edition, history, session support and identifier completion and documentation (courtesy of ocp-index).

Consult the manual.

Quick start

Simply run ocaml and load the library:

> ocaml
...
# #use "down.top";;
Down loaded. Type Down.help () for more info.
# List.con^t
  List.cons : 'a -> 'a list -> 'a list
  List.concat : 'a list list -> 'a list
# List.con

You can add this #use invocation to your ~/.ocamlinit file.

For ocamlnat you will likely have to invoke it with -noinit and you must #use "down.nattop".
