Building custom toplevel systems


ocamlmktop [ -v|-version|-vnum ] [ -cclib libname ] [ -ccopt option ] [ -custom ] [ -o exec-file ] [ -I lib-dir ] filename ...


The ocamlmktop(1) command builds OCaml toplevels that contain user code preloaded at start-up. The ocamlmktop(1) command takes as argument a set of x.cmo and x.cma files, and links them with the object files that implement the OCaml toplevel.  If the -custom flag is given, C object files and libraries (.o and .a files) can also be given on the command line and are linked in the resulting toplevel.


The following command-line options are recognized by ocamlmktop(1).
