Module Ast_iterator
: sig end

Ast_iterator.iterator enables AST inspection using open recursion.  A typical mapper would be based on Ast_iterator.default_iterator , a trivial iterator, and will fall back on it for handling the syntax it does not modify.

}

A iterator record implements one "method" per syntactic category, using an open recursion style: each method takes as its first argument the iterator to be applied to children in the syntax tree.

val default_iterator : iterator

A default iterator, which implements a "do not do anything" mapping.
