OCaml cross-compiler based on mingw32

Objective Caml (OCaml) is an implementation of the ML language, based on the Caml Light dialect extended with a complete class-based object system and a powerful module system in the style of Standard ML.

OCaml comprises two compilers. One generates bytecode which is then interpreted by a C program. This compiler runs quickly, generates compact code with moderate memory requirements, and is portable to essentially any 32 or 64 bit Unix platform. Performance of generated programs is quite good for a bytecoded implementation: almost twice as fast as Caml Light 0.7. This compiler can be used either as a standalone, batch-oriented compiler that produces standalone programs, or as an interactive, toplevel-based system.

The other compiler generates high-performance native code for a number of processors. Compilation takes longer and generates bigger code, but the generated programs deliver excellent performance, while retaining the moderate memory requirements of the bytecode compiler. It is not available on all arches though.

This package contains everything needed to build OCaml code targeted to be executed under windows.

Package version:3.11.2+debian4


This package is a Debian specific build of OCaml shipping a 
cross-compiler using the mingw32 compilation tools. 

The target of the compiler is win32, i.e. the compiler 
creates native binary for Windows. By native, we mean 
that the binary are compliant with the original win32
API/ABI, and do not use a POSIX emulation such as cygwin.

This also means that the compiler may not support some


mingw32-ocaml (3.11.2+debian4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Added a patch to hardcode linker's options
    for ocamlmklib.
  * Modified custom Makefile to call the correct ranlib
    and setup correct options for dynlink and shared object
  * Added missing files to install target.
  Thanks to Pierre Letouzey for testing and reporting 
  these issues.
