Subject: [Caml-list] toplevels / bytecode interpreter

Can the OCaml bytecode interpreter be embedded in C programs? For
example, a C program that mimics the top-level to a simpler degree.

I'm thinking of changing DST so that it runs a bytecode interpreter on
the bare metal instead of native code. Although, I'm sure I'd need a
lot more libc underneath to get it working compared to native code ;-)

I was also thinking the toplevel might be a good place to start
(though, don't exactly need the shell-like interface...).

Some pointers on general directions to take would be great.

Kindest Regards,

Jonathan Roewen
