ocaml_plugin

Automatically build and dynlink OCaml source files
IN THIS PACKAGE
Module type Ocaml_plugin . Compiler . S
type t
val load_ocaml_src_files : ( string list -> t Async.Deferred.Or_error.t ) create_arguments
val load_ocaml_src_files_without_running_them : ( string list -> ( unit -> t ) Async.Deferred.Or_error.t ) create_arguments
val check_ocaml_src_files : ( string list -> unit Async.Deferred.Or_error.t ) create_arguments
val check_plugin_cmd : unit -> Async.Command.t

Command that checks that the anon files given compile and match the interface X given. Also provides a -ocamldep mode allowing only the main file to be passed on the command line.

module Load : Dynloader.S with type t := t

Load contains functions similar to the ones above, and can be used if you want to separate extraction of the compiler from building/loading files. It can be useful if you want to extract the compiler upfront (to improve latency a bit) or if you want to share the cost of extracting the compiler for the current executable over multiple compilations. Probably not needed by the casual user.
