Another commercial product written entirely in F#: The .NET PDF Toolkit

Coherent Graphics recently announced the first release of their Coherent PDF Toolkit for .NET with prices starting at only £495. This toolkit provides a wide range of professional, robust tools to modify PDF documents.

Interestingly, the 40,000-line code base is derived from their existing CamlPDF toolkit that was written in OCaml and now cross-compiles as both OCaml and F#. The existence of a project this size cross compiling with minimal changes really demonstrates just how much the OCaml and F# languages have in common.

This the third commercial product written entirely in F#, after our own F# for Visualization and F# for Numerics products.
