|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004500: ocamlbuild -n would be nice|
|Description||I have in the past used make -n systematically, to construct a command file for a system that doesn't have make. It would be nice to be able to use ocamlbuild (which I use now in preference to make) for the same purpose.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
ocamlbuild -n is not really useful since ocamlbuild produce a _log file that happens to be a shell script.
So "sh ./_build/_log" should works smoothly.
However this usage is not guaranteed to works in every cases (as in make) if you have done some configurations, in this case commands can be machine specific.
Second point some commands could be performed by caml functions and so perhaps not completely equivalent (if present) with those in the _log file.
|But the _log file requires me to actually do all the compilations. It would be nice to generate the _log without actually doing the work.|
|That's not really doable in the context of ocamlbuild, since next commands are determined by the output of some previous commands.|
