A concurrent and shared-memory parallel extension of the OCaml compiler.
Multicore OCaml cleanly separates abstractions for concurrency (overlapped execution) from parallelism (simultaneous execution). Concurrency is expressed through effect handlers and parallelism through domains. Much of the work in supporting shared memory parallelism is the development of a mostly-concurrent, generational, mark-and-sweep collector that strikes a balance between single-threaded performance and feature backwards compatibility, and multicore scalability.

4.12+domains. This branch is useful to install ppx libraries.
If you want to try out Multicore OCaml, the easiest way is to install the compiler using OPAM.
Parallel programming examples are available in the domainslib library.
Effect handler (concurrent programming) examples are available in effects-examples repo.
The original README.adoc file has been moved to README.stock.adoc.
