Cool! Could you explain the trick?

If I understood correctly /dev/fd/x is a pointer to /proc/self/fd/x, so
the ocaml process try to read the script from /proc/self/fd/0 that is
its standard input i.e. the output of the echo command.

But why the standard ocaml toplevel message wont be printed?

TIA,
Cheers.
