If I understand correctly your needs, there are two approaches that
don't involve hacking the OCaml system to death:

1- The pedestrian approach: pretty-print your programs in OCaml syntax
to a file, invoke the "ocamlc" compiler with Sys.command,
then dynamically load the compiled bytecode using the Dynlink library.

2- The principled approach: have a look at MetaOCaml
(, which provides clean
mechanisms for meta-programming in Caml, i.e. manipulating and
executing Caml code from within Caml programs.

Hope this helps,
