Thank you for your answer, I'm going to try that in addition to trying
installing OcamlŠ
Unfortunately I won't be able to try now and I'm going on holidays next
Friday so I won't be able to continue this discussionŠ but I'll be back in
two weeks for new questions ! ;) (and this one again if the answers I got
don't workŠ)
