Subject: [Caml-list] Problem with ocamlmktop
Hello fellow O'Caml-users,

I'm pretty new to O'Caml, and there's something with ocamlmktop that 
puzzles me (albeit it probably being rational behaviour that I merely 
need to comprehend before I can move on and solve the problem :-)):

When I make a new toplevel, by first running ocaml -c for site.mli and 
then for, with ocamlmktop site.cmo, I can't seem to use it if it 
doesnt stay in the same directory as the *.cm* files reside. Furtermore 
it seems I have to be in that directory when executing my toplevel as 
well. The following text describes the phenomena:

/var/www/site# ocamlmktop site.cmo -o site-toplevel
/var/www/site# ls
site-toplevel  site.cmi  site.cmo  site.mli
/var/www/site# ./site-toplevel
         Objective Caml version 3.08.1

# ;;
- : string -> string = <fun>
/var/www/site# cd ..
/var/www# ./site/site-toplevel
         Objective Caml version 3.08.1

# ;;
Unbound value

Now, what I want to do is to use a modified toplevel for mod_ocaml, so I 
won't have to redefine my functions in every ocml (html with ocaml-code 
in it, handled by mod_ocaml) file! I suppose, being quite new to O'Caml, 
I might have missed some other way to achieve this; please enlighten me 
if that is so. :-)

What I want to know, then, is if there is some way to define functions 
in an external file and then use the functions in an other interpreted 
file, with "open Site;;" or similar.

Best regards,
Malte Obbel Forsberg
