\section{Exports of library {\tt \$smlnj/cm/tools.cm}}

As described in section~\ref{sec:moretools}, it is possible to extend
CM's set of available tools using the programming interface provided
by {\tt structure Tools}.  This structure---together with its
corresponding {\tt signature TOOLS}---is exported by library {\tt
\$smlnj/cm/tools.cm}.  The same library also exports {\tt structure
Sharing}, {\tt structure Version}, and a corresponding {\tt signature
VERSION}.
