All basic types are supported except weak arrays and objects;

supported all core operations are possible.
Integers are 32 bits wide, not 31 bits.
There may be differences in the string/numeric conversions.
Channels are limited: You cannot freely select the opening mode; only
the following two modes are possible:
Non-blocking mode and selection of text or binary mode are silently ignored.

Standard library: Lexers and Parsers
Neither lexers nor parsers work.
Standard library: Unclear
Many functions of the standard library have not yet been tested very
well. Especially the following modules may be problematic: Filename, Printf
There is a library which is intended to be compatible with Str. The
compiler for regular expressions has been written in OCaml itself
while the execution of prepared expression is done by a Java class.
In this library you find special functions dealing with the
environment of applets. See the file net_runtime.mli and the
introduction JavaCaml and
At the moment, none of the other libraries nor the toplevel library
can be used.
