*** Welcome to Batteries Included *** OCaml Batteries Included: the community-maintained foundation library for your OCaml projects. Batteries Included serves the following purposes: * define a standard set of libraries which may be expected on every compliant installation of OCaml * organize these libraries into a hierarchy of modules, with one source of documentation * provide a consistent API for otherwise independent libraries. *** Building Batteries Included *** **** Requirements **** You will need * OCaml >= 3.11 * Findlib >= 1.2.5 (http://projects.camlcity.org/projects/findlib.html/) * make (optional; aids build and installation) * Camomile >= 0.7 (http://camomile.sourceforge.net/) * OUnit to build and run the tests **** Configuration and installation **** To install the full version of OCaml Batteries Included, execute $ make all $ make test [ optional ] $ sudo make install $ make doc [ optional ] $ sudo make install-doc [ optional ] If you want the documentation installed elsewhere, set this *before* starting the build process (it becomes part of batteries_config.ml). $ export DOCROOT=/path/to/new/docroot/ If you want findlib to use a -destdir argument to [ocamlfind install], set $ export DESTDIR=/path/to/findlib/dest To disable native compilation: $ export BATTERIES_NATIVE=false To disable building of native shared libraries: $ export BATTERIES_NATIVE_SHLIB=false *** Using Batteries *** To get started using Batteries at the toplevel, copy the ocamlinit file to ~/.ocamlinit: $ cp ocamlinit ~/.ocamlinit If you already have findlib in your ~/.ocamlinit, you only need the last line in our ocamlinit to load batteries. *** ExtLib Compatibility *** If your project currently uses ExtLib, most likely you can just change [-package extlib] to [-package batteries] and add [open Extlibcompat] to the top of any extlib-using modules. Batteries' modules are all named BatFoo to differentiate them from extlib's modules, so one can use Batteries and ExtLib in the same project. COMPATIBILITY NOTE: If you're using ExtLib's Unzip module, it does not have a corresponding module in batteries at the moment. *** Extending Batteries Included *** See doc/batteries/GUIDELINES
