Installing Ocamlexc 1.0.1 on a Unix machine
Feb 2002: Initial release.
Mar 2012: Make it compiling with OCaml 3.12.1 + very minor fix
* The Objective Caml compiler version 2.0 or above
* The OcamlTk package if you want to be able to use the graphical
browser to exploit the results of the analysis. This also means that
you need to have Tcl/Tk installed in order to get OcamlTk running.
0- Let's assume you already have Objective Caml and OcamlTk installed
and properly set up.
1- Configure the system if needed. From the top directory, edit the
Makefile. Two variables may need to be changed:
INSTALLDIR: where to install the software
OCAMLKLIBDIR: where was installed your version of camltk
NOTE: If you want to compile the software with a particular version of
the Objective Caml that is installed somewhere else than in the
regular path, you may also change the variable called BINDIR. In this
case you should fill it with the path where your compiler is
2- From the top directory, do:
make all
This builds the analyser in bytecode mode.
You can then build the analyser in native code mode by doing:
make opt
These phases are verbose; you may want to redirect the output to a file:
make all > log.bytc 2>&1 # in sh
make all >& log.bytc # in csh
make opt > log.opt 2>&1 # in sh
make opt >& log.opt # in csh
NOTE: The bytecode and native code versions of the analyser provide
the same results. The only difference is that the native code version
will run faster. It's just a matter of how is compiled the software;
it doesn't affect the results of the analyser itself.
3- Install the software
First become root. Then set default mask to 022 by doing:
umask 022
Then, to install the bytecode version of the analyser, do:
make install
If needed, to install the native code version of the analyser, just do:
make installopt
4- Installation is complete. Time to clean up. From the toplevel
directory, do "make clean".
* The unix library is not completly handled. More accurately, the set
of exceptions (Unix_error) that can be returned by the provided
functions is not exact. We should read carefully read the Unix
specifications to accurately report the exact set for each
function. This will be done in a later version.
* The printf library causes troubles with the type "format". This type
is currently interpreted as a string rather than the builtin hack it
really is. This causes .......
