Subject: Patch for the Caml-Light runtime.
This patch will solve the problem of extra arguments being passed to
executable byte-code files on a variety of Unix systems (Pyramid,
Sequent, HP-UX, ...)  You need to install this patch if the "fib"
program in the "examples/basics" directory replies "Bad integer
constant" even when you give it a correct number as argument.

It is harmless to install this patch on systems where it is not
needed.

To install this patch, save this mail in your Caml Light source
directory "src/runtime" as file "patch1", go to that directory and
type "patch <patch1".  (You will need the "patch" utility, which is
widely available in source form. (e.g. from ftp.inria.fr))
Then recompile and reinstall Caml Light.  (If you know what you are
doing, you can recompile and reinstall only the runtime.)
