|0004713||OCaml||Camlp4||public||2009-02-10 20:20||2012-09-17 13:49|
|Target Version||4.01.0+dev||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004713: Camlp4o messes with comments|
|Description||Camlp4o messes with comments, hence with ocamldoc generation of documentation.|
In order for comments to be used by ocamldoc, they should come immediately before or after a value. Camlp4o moves comments away from values, hences breaks ocamldoc.
While there may be workarounds, it's quite annoying for documentation generation of Batteries Included, as it produces pages such as http://batteries.forge.ocamlcore.org/doc.preview:batteries-alpha3/html/api/GZip.html [^] .
Is there any hope that this could be fixed?

|camlp4o t.mli => the comment is removed|
|camlp4o t2.mli => the first comment is moved from the first value to the second value, the second comment is removed|
|camlp4.diff - a dirty workaround that will partially fix observed behaviour (for interface files). Can't think of anything better unless comments become part of the Ast (why not?).|
Here is one more example : http://extunix.forge.ocamlcore.org/api/ExtUnixSpecific.html#TYPEadvice [^]
Is it possible to make comments part of the AST and will you consider such patch for inclusion?
Note that the problem is that you are using an intermediate on-disk file, camlp4 is not supposed to be used like this (you loose locations for example).
If you call ocamldoc on the file before it is preprocessed with the right -pp option, then the result is fine (i tried for extunix). A possible solution for extunix is to copy extUnix.mlpp to extUnixAll.ml and extUnixSpecific.ml and use camlp4 on both files. If you want i can provide a patch.
Thanks for looking into it - I will try to generate docs with simultaneous preprocessing and see how it goes. The generated files are included in distribution so I decided to generate docs from that files without much thinking.
(Anyway, camlp4 ideally shouldn't mess with comments).
