Hi, Enjoying the book so far. On top of pg 122, you say "We're sure you could write a simple implementation... Well I wasn't so sure, but it wasn't too hard. Is below what you had in mind?
type IntOption =
|SomeInt of int
let parseIntOption(s) =
match Int32.TryParse(s) with
|true, parsed -> IntOption.SomeInt(parsed)
|_ -> IntOption.NoneInt
let testParseIntOption() =
let intOption = parseIntOption("42")
match intOption with
|IntOption.SomeInt(myI) ->
printfn "myI= %d" myI
|IntOption.NoneInt ->
printfn "Dude, an integer please"
