BTW, for importing "malloc", you should use
_import "malloc": C_Size.word -> MLton.Pointer.t;
_import "malloc": Word32.word -> MLton.Pointer.t;
to pass the appropriately sized 'size_t' object on 32-bit and 64-bit
The "structure C_Size : WORD" is available from
You could also use C_Size.wordSize to compute the sizeof a pointer (MLton
asserts that sizeof(void*) == sizeof(size_t) and CHAR_BIT == 8).
