The compatibility field is interpreted as follows:

means that the unit belongs to the SML Basis Library.
means that the unit is loaded if no `-P' option is specified (default).
means that the unit is loaded if option `-P full' is specified.
means that the unit is loaded if option `-P nj93' is specified.
means that the unit is loaded if option `-P sml90' is specified.
means that the unit is from the SML/NJ Library (version 0.2).
means that the unit requires the Dynlib foreign (C) function interface and other foreign libraries

Getting help in a mosml interactive session

Within a mosml interactive session, the Moscow ML Library manual pages are accessible in ASCII format from the `help' utility. For instance, to get help on the toString functions, type

   help "tostring";
