The OP was asking about SML rather than OCaml so it is probably worth noting
that there are SML compilers targetting .NET. There's also OCamIL for
OCaml. However, none of these compilers support the whole of the target
language, AFAIK, and I still think it would be easier to communicate using
text... :-)
