"A tool to facilitate the installation of OCaml annotation files (.cmt, .cmti, .spot, .spit)."
description: """
Many existing OCaml libraries, applications and the compiler itself do
not produce or install the annotation files (.annot, .cmt, .cmti,
.spot, .spit) which are essential for sub-expression type queries
(caml-types.el), definition seaches and code refactoring (TypeRex and
OCamlSpotter). If you want to use development tools, you have to:
* Rebuild all the software from the source, adding -annot/-bin-annot
option to compiler flags in build scripts
i.e. Makefile/OCamlBuild/OMakefile.
* Install those annotation files together with the library objects and
signatures. (Require modification of the build scripts)
for all the programs.
SpotInstall provides a post-installation workaround, consists of two things:
* A very small compiler patch which activates -annot and -bin-annot if OCAML_ANNOT environment variable is defined. (You no longder need to add -annot/-bin-annot to the build scripts.)
* A small tool to install annotation files to the library destination directory. (You no longer need to add annotation file installation to the build scripts.)
For the first workaround, you need a small patch available from::
hg clone -b annot
or included in this source package, ocaml-annot-<version>.patch.
For the second one, you can use SpotInstall. This tool."""
