Subject: [Caml-list] Suggestions for OcamlDoc & CamlP4
Hye!
I have two little queries about these *beautiful* tools:

 + In ocamldoc, -stars option should also remove the starts at end of
comments, like in:
    (**
     * {1 Documentation}
     * Blablabla...
     **)

 +In camlp4, location of terminals are lost inside rule's actions. Actually,
this is a draw back of the
   token pattern-matching design, where the data returned from the lexer to
the parser is a string.
   The solution which consists in encapsulating a terminal inside a specific
rule (for which the
   location in known through [loc]) does work properly! This solution would
prevent
  the parser from factorizing  terminals inside rules, which drawn the
parsed language
  down to LL(0), if not worse.
  According to my point of view, a lexer should be able to define the result
of its matching function,
  while preserving the design of matching a couple of strings. More
precisely:

type 'a Token.glexer should be replaced by ('a,'b) glexer, where the pattern
function could be :
tok_match : pattern -> 'a -> 'b

then, the GLexerType could have the following signature:
type te (* input token *)
type td (* token's data for parser *)
val lexer : (te,td) Token.glexer

Of course, these are only suggestions.
    L.
