OVERVIEW: Camlidl is a stub code generator for Objective Caml. It generates stub code for interfacing Caml with C from an IDL description of the C functions. Thus, Camlidl automates the most tedious task in interfacing C libraries with Caml programs. It can also be used to interface Caml programs with other languages, as long as those languages have a well-defined C interface. In addition, Camlidl provides basic support for COM interfaces and components under MS Windows. It supports both using COM components (usually written in C++ or C) from Caml programs, and packaging Caml objects as COM components that can then be used from C++ or C.

For members of the Caml Consortium, the special Consortium license applies to this distribution. REQUIREMENTS: Camlidl requires Objective Caml 4.03 or later. Under MS Windows, you must use the MSVC port of Objective Caml. INSTALLATION: - Under Unix, copy config/Makefile.unix to config/Makefile. Under Windows, copy config/Makefile.win32 to config/Makefile. - Edit config/Makefile to set configuration options, following the comments in that file. You must set the OCAMLLIB and BINDIR variables to reflect the location of your OCaml installation. Other variables have reasonable defaults. - Do "make all". - Become super-user if necessary and do "make install". DOCUMENTATION: - The doc/ subdirectory contains the user's manual in HTML and in Postscript. - Several examples are provided in the directories tests/ and tests/comp/.
