Original bug ID: 6808
Reporter: @damiendoligez
Assigned to: @damiendoligez
Status: closed (set by @damiendoligez on 2016-03-23T10:03:24Z)
Resolution: fixed
Priority: low
Severity: tweak
Version: 4.02.1
Target version: 4.03.0+dev / +beta1
Fixed in version: 4.03.0+dev / +beta1
Category: runtime system and C interface
Monitored by: @hcarty

Bug description

consider the following command line:

OCAMLRUNPARAM=h=0xb0000a=1 ./a.out

It will run a.out with:

  • initial heap size set to 0xb0000a
  • backtraces enabled
  • first-fit allocation policy

Solution: demand that the options be separated by commas (which is what most users do already) and document the format more precisely.
