Subject: [Caml-list] Dynlink problems

I'm building a plug-in module as a .cmo file which requires a mixed
OCaml/C library which I build with ocamlmklib (ie. I have foo.cma and

The plug-in module needs to get loaded using Dynlink.

I can't work out how to compile the plug-in so that it references
the functions in On loading, it consistently complains

The external function `...' is not available

where ... is a function defined in the foo library.

I've even tried giving -dllib on the command line when compiling the
.cmo file, but this makes no obvious difference.

What am I doing wrong?!
