       Set - Sets over ordered types.

       Module	Set

       Module Set
	: sig end

       Sets over ordered types.

       This  module  implements	the set	data structure,	given a	total ordering
       function	over the set elements. All operations over sets	are purely ap-
       plicative  (no  side-effects).  The implementation uses balanced	binary
       trees, and is therefore reasonably efficient: insertion and  membership
       take time logarithmic in	the size of the	set, for instance.

       The  Make functor constructs implementations for	any type, given	a com-
       pare function.  For instance: module IntPairs = struct type t =	int  *
       int let compare (x0,y0) (x1,y1) = match x0 x1	with 0
       ->  y0  y1  |  c  ->	 c  end	 module	  PairsSet   =
       Set.Make(IntPairs) let m	= PairsSet.(empty |> add (2,3) |> add (5,7) |>
       add (11,13))

       This creates a new module PairsSet , with a new type PairsSet.t of sets
       of int *	int .

       module type OrderedType = sig end

       Input signature of the functor Set.Make .

       module type S = sig end

       Output signature	of the functor Set.Make	.

       module Make : functor (Ord : OrderedType) -> sig	end

       Functor building	an implementation of the set structure given a totally
       ordered type.
