CamlP4 - Pre-Processor-Pretty-Printer for Objective Caml
[load-options] [--] [other-options]
Camlp4 is a Pre-Processor-Pretty-Printer for Objective Caml. It offers tools
for syntax (Stream Parsers and Grammars) and the ability to modify the concrete
syntax of the language (Quotations, Syntax Extensions).
The Objective Caml compiler has a special option "-pp", allowing to call any
preprocessor. If Camlp4 is used, the parsing is done (only once) by Camlp4, and
the Objective Caml compiler resumes the rest of the compilation (typing, code
Camlp4 can parse normal OCaml concrete syntax or any other user-definable
syntax. As an example, an alternative syntax is provided, named Revised,
because it tries to fix some problems of the original syntax.
Camlp4 can pretty print the normal OCaml concrete syntax or the revised one
(Pretty-Printer). It is therefore always possible to have a version of your
sources compilable by the compiler Objective Caml without preprocessing.
Camlp4 can also serve as a Program Transformation tool, the user can supply
transformations and apply them easily as a pre-processing task. This is done
