I want to run arbitrary code and kill it if it works longer than N seconds. Arbitrary means there is not any
sleep in the code to pass control to the scheduler.
The question was asked before on SO: Interrupt a call in OCaml - Stack Overflow but the solution was kind of unsatisfactory. The
Thread.kill function is not really implemented. The solution that kind of worked for me, is to spawn a OS process per task and kill them on demand.
Did something changed in OCaml 5.x? Do I leave in the better world of the year 2024?
