Subject: [Caml-list] Caml4p... help
hi everybody,
I've just started playing with Caml4p today and I'm already at a dead
end. My goal is to transform this syntax 

str pc : [a;b;c]

into a declaration like that.
let pc_str = `Forall [| `Rule a; `Rule b; `Rule c |] 

extending (and in the future restricting) the caml syntax.

I wrote this but I've problems compiling it. It says:

ocamlc -c -pp "camlp4o pa_extend.cmo q_MLast.cmo" -I /usr/lib/ocaml/camlp4 str.ml
File "str.ml", line 18, characters 2-10:
This expression has type unit but is here used with type MLast.expr
make: *** [str.cmi] Error 2

of course the problem in about the "str" type. But I haven't still figured 
out why...

Je vous remercie d'avance.

----------------------- str.ml ------------------------
(*pp camlp4o pa_extend.cmo q_MLast.cmo *)
open Pcaml;;

type kind = [
    |`Rule of string
    |`First of kind array
    |`Forall of kind array
]

let str = Grammar.Entry.create gram "str";;

EXTEND
  expr: AFTER "top"
    [[ "str"; n = LINDENT; ":"; s = str ->
        <:expr< let $lid:n$ = $s$ in $lid:n$ >> ]];

  str: [[
    | n = LINDENT -> <:expr<`Rule $str:n$>>
    | "["; s = LIST1 str SEP ";"; "]" -> <:expr<`Forall [|$list:s$|] >>
    | "{"; s = LIST1 str SEP ";"; "}" -> <:expr<`First [|$list:s$|] >> ]];

END;;
