The source code for both fslib.dll and mllib.dll is included as sample code in the release. All F# programs implicitly reference both mllib.dll and fslib.dll as well as the following .NET assemblies, where available:

  • mscorlib.dll
  • System.dll
  • System.Xml.dll
  • System.Runtime.Remoting.dll
  • System.Data.dll
  • System.Drawing.dll
  • System.Web.dll
  • System.Web.Services.dll
  • System.Windows.Forms.dll

Some of the namespaces, modules and types in the F# library are:

This namespaces Microsoft.FSharp.Core, Microsoft.FSharp.Collections, Microsoft.FSharp.Control and Microsoft.FSharp.Text are automatically opened for every source code file, as is the module Microsoft.FSharp.Core.Operators. This means modules such as Microsoft.FSharp.Collections.List can typically be opened just by using open List.

Some modules are primarily of interest for those cross-compiling OCaml code, e.g. those under the Microsoft.FSharp.Compatibility.OCaml namespace.
