Loading the standard library.
The stdlib can be loaded in two ways.
1) [of_static_include]
This is the default one, it works as follows:
- A [staticsInclude.of] file is generated by the build system (see
../, automatically selecting files to be included from the
stdlib directory
- ofile is used to turn the [staticsInclude.of] into [],
embedding all stdlib source as strings (this is done by the generic ofile
build rule)
- the [StaticsInclude] module is included in [opalib.cmxa] and used at
- the mechanism in the current module enables to switch between different
(conflicting) versions for some stdlib files
2) [of_basedir]
The second version dynamically looks for the files at opa compile-time (ie ml runtime).
Only use for more easily testing your changes to the stdlib. It uses the [of_basedir]
function below.
type filename = string
Returns all the filenames of the stdlib embedded in the compiler.
cf [], we access the [StaticsInclude.file_list],
and applying the dynamic filter.
val of_static_include : OpaEnv.opa_options -> filename list
Get all the opafiles from the basedir, and applying the same dynamic filter.
val of_basedir : filename list -> OpaEnv.opa_options -> filename list
