What is ExtLib ?

ExtLib is a set of additional useful functions and modules for OCaml.

Project page : https://github.com/ygrek/ocaml-extlib

Online API documentation : http://ygrek.org.ua/p/extlib/doc/

Dependencies

  • cppo - enables conditional compilation to ensure compatibility with various OCaml versions
  • ocamlfind >= 1.5.1 - provides bytes package

Installation

Unzip or untar in any directory and run

make minimal=1 build install

This will build and install bytecode and native libraries. On bytecode-only architecture run

make minimal=1 all install

minimal=1 will exclude from build several modules (namely Unzip UChar UTF8) potentially conflicting with other well established OCaml libraries. If your code is expecting to find these modules in extlib - omit this parameter during build to produce the full library.
