Re: [MirageOS-devel] Using Ocaml math libraries in MirageOS?

This one is with Mirage related code included - https://gist.github.com/jzstark/e94917167754963de701e9e9ce750b2e

Yes it works quite well (of course with some constraints). Owl-base

MirageOS has always been important to us so we have devoted quite a
lot of efforts to making it easier to use owl+mirage. We are currently
re-writing the owl tutorial book and will dedicate one chapter to
owl+mirage in order to encourage people to build intelligent unikernel

Here is an example:

It is a very small neural network (prob. several KBs) which recognises
handwritten digits, pure ocaml code using owl-base can be compiled
with mirage.

So it's may be interesting to start with Owl which is a project
born in OCamllabs and whose creator (to my knowledge) kept in his
mind MirageOS and its constraints.

Liang (CC’d) will know the current status better, but we had a
student do a project a couple of years ago that targeting enabling
Owl to work with Mirage (and js_of_ocaml). So I believe it should
work, or at least, not be too far away from working.
