Subject: Re: [Caml-list] infix precedence
Hi, Daniel, I have to raise some questions about infix declaration in
camlp4 again.

Now I defined some infix as follows:
------------------------------------
let add_infix lev op = 
  EXTEND
      GLOBAL: Pcaml.expr;
          Pcaml.expr: LEVEL $lev$    
	      [ [ x = SELF; $op$; y = SELF -> <:expr< $lid:op$ $x$ $y$
	      >> ] ];   
	        END;; 

let _ = add_infix "*" ">>*"
let _ = add_infix "<" "wth"
let _ = add_infix "||" "|||"
------------------------------------

Then I have a following function:

  let f = number ||| literal '-' >>* number wth (fun x -> -x)

(where number and literal are some function I defined before.)

According to the infix definition above, this function should 
work as:

  let f = number ||| (literal '-' >>* number wth (fun x -> -x))

because the precedence of 'wth' is higher than that of '|||'.
But, it turns out to evaluate as:

  let f = (number ||| literal '-' >>* number) wth (fun x -> -x)

So, I have to add parenthesis so that it can work properly.
Can you help me to figure out this problem because I want to get rid of
the parenthesis so that my code is more readable? 

Thanks a lot!
Dengping
