Lwt: lightweight thread library for OCaml
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
This library is part of the Ocsigen project. See:
http://ocsigen.org/lwt
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Requirements:
* OCaml with ocamlbuild (>= 3.12.1)
* findlib
* [optional] react (from http://erratique.ch/software/react)
* [optional] libev (from http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/libev.html)
* [optional] ocaml-text (needed for the enhanced toplevel)
* [optional] ocamlssl (>= 0.4.0) (ocamlssl needs openssl) (>= 0.4.1 for MacOS)
* [optional] glib-2.0 development files and pkg-config
If the dependencies are not installed on your computer, you can use OPAM
to install them automatically. See:
http://opam.ocaml.org/
They might also be available through your distribution.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Instructions:
* run "ocaml setup.ml -configure" to configure sources
You can add '--enable-<lib>' to enable compilation of
the sub-library <lib>. The flag '--enable-all' will
enable everything.
In order to compile without libev support you must add
'--disable-libev'.
* run "ocaml setup.ml -build" to compile
* run "ocaml setup.ml -install" as root to install compiled libraries
* run "ocaml setup.ml -uninstall" as root to uninstall them
HTML documentation is generated in _build/lwt.docdir/, but is not
installed by default.
If you get the development version you need to obtain OASIS
(http://oasis.forge.ocamlcore.org/).
If you want to build the toplevel you have to install compiler
libraries. Under Debian it is the package ocaml-compiler-libs.
Note that the utop project replaces the Lwt toplevel:
