Summary0004920: example of linking C main with OCaml runtime needs additional libraries
DescriptionIn the manual chapter "Interfacing C with Objective Caml", subsection "Advanced topic: callbacks from C to Caml", sub-subsection "Embedding the Caml code in the C code":

1. It's not necessary to include unix.cma in the ocamlopt command, or -lunix in the gcc command (unless required by the OCaml code, of course)

2. It is necessary to add both "-lm" and "-ldl" at the end of the gcc command line.

(on Linux, at least)

About (1): I think that's quite clear from the manual: it includes this sentence:

>> For instance, assume the OCaml part of your program uses the Unix library.

About (2): on Mac OS X, I don't need "-lm" nor "-ldl". I need "-lcurses" but only in the byte-code case...

Added a sentence to the manual (rev 13992).
