Precompiled binaries for Linux

Precompiled binaries for MacOS X

Binary package compiled on Mac OS 10.7.5 with XCode tools 4.4 (not compatible with Mac OS 10.4.x):

Precompiled binaries for Microsoft Windows

Four ports of OCaml for Microsoft Windows are currently available. For additional information, please consult the list of portability issues or the Windows release notes.

  • MinGW-based native Win32 port (4.00.0). A self installer. The interactive loop comes with a simple graphical user interface. Some features require the Cygwin environment. However, the compilers generate true Win32 executables, which do not require Cygwin to run.
  • Microsoft-based native Win32 port (4.00.0). A self installer. The interactive loop comes with a simple graphical user interface. Some features require Microsoft Visual C++ and Microsoft Assembler.
  • Cygwin-based port. Requires Cygwin. No graphical user interface is provided. The compilers generate executables that do require Cygwin. The precompiled binaries are part of the Cygwin distribution; you can install them using the Cygwin setup tool. Alternatively, download the source distribution and compile it under Cygwin.
  • Microsoft-based native Win64 port Same features as the Microsoft-based native Win32 port, but generates 64-bit code. No binary distribution available yet; download the source distribution and compile it.

Precompiled binaries for Solaris

Available at sunfreeware.com.
