Subject: Reverting ocamlc and ocamlopt library generation
Hello everyone,
some days ago, a message on the caml-list was sent regarding that ocamlopt complains that cmxa are not compilation units.

After having responded off the list to the person, it seems that he is facing the following situtation:

He is in the present of external cmxa libraries, let's say lib1.cmxa and lib2.cmxa.

The goal is to create a library lib.cmxa containing the code of lib1.cmxa lib2.cmxa and some personal file.cmx.
A solution could be to compile the personal files into one library lib_.cmxa , and use the three libraries in conjunction.

My question is the following :
Is the process of creating cma from cmos and cmas as well as cmxa from cmxs too complicated.
Compared to the ar equivalent with .obj, is there any additional sugar, except options passed through -cclib -dllib ??

If it's not the case, isn't there a simple way to reverse engineer the library creation process ??

It can be of some interest to be able to scatter lib1.cmxa into the corresponding cmx's used during the creation.
I've looked a little bit throught the ocaml manual, and didn't find anything explaining this phase and the feasability of reverting it.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
