I really need to dig into some proper functional programming at some point!

I've been learning SML via this book, http://www.amazon.com/Elements-ML-Programming-ML97-2nd/dp/01...

Quite good and filled with the kind of exercises that help the language really sink in. Also the OS X installation process for SML/NJ has recently become quite simple.

One big difference between OCaml and SML is that ocamlopt makes it dead simple to create executables for a wide variety of platforms, and that is not so easy w/ SML/NJ.
