Using the rescript-lang/std library

Hey folks. Came across this ->

While I am rummaging through code, I come across errors like the following:

    throw new Error(s + " not polyfilled by BuckleScript yet\n")

Error: caml_ml_output_bytes not polyfilled by BuckleScript yet

Would using be a solution to this?

If so how would you use in your lib?

Thank you.

Hey, the rationale behind the rescript/std package and its recommended usage is explained in our 9.0 release blog post:

What are you using this library for?

Just trying to get this to run without error:

Quoting ocaml easy format lib docs:

This module offers a high-level and functional interface to the Format module of the OCaml standard library.

Not sure if it already happened, but Format was planned to be removed for rescript: What stable type system features we are going to preserve from OCaml

@idkjs Shouldn’t you run the ˋregisterˋ function of the polyfill module before attempting using it?

@ryyppy i have no idea what you are talking about. Where can I read about that or how is it done?

Thank you.
