Subject: Re: [Caml-list] How to use pcre (2)
I suspect there is something wrong with my installation.  I have
compiled pcre in /usr/local/src and put the following files in


Working on Debian Linux, that did not work.  So I symlinked all those
files to /usr/lib/ocaml.  Then I could open pcre in the toplevel.  But
there is something else wrong here.

Trying Markus' solution I came across the following new problem
regarding pcre both in the toplevel and when I try to compile it:

$ ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.01

# let s = "abcde";;
let s = "abcde";;
val s : string = "abcde"
# let t = Pcre.replace ~pat:"d" ~templ:"D" s;;
let t = Pcre.replace ~pat:"d" ~templ:"D" s;;
Reference to undefined global `Pcre'

$ ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.01

# open Pcre;;
open Pcre;;
# let s = "abcde";;
let s = "abcde";;
val s : string = "abcde"
#   let t = replace ~pat:"d" ~templ:"D" s;;
  let t = replace ~pat:"d" ~templ:"D" s;;
Reference to undefined global `Pcre'

I tried to compile the file in which I want to use this type of
function with

ocamlfind ocamlopt -o v1 -package postgres,threads -thread -linkpkg
No implementations provided for the following modules:
  Pcre referenced from v3.cmx
and also with 
ocamlfind ocamlopt -o v1 -package postgres,pcre,threads -thread
ocamlfind: package 'pcre' not found
There was no META file in the pcre-sources. How do I go forward from
