Hi! You're the author right? I there a repository somewhere?
I have a couple of patches. To the lexer I added:

and ocaml_type = parse
  | "->" 
      { ocaml_code_buffer := (!ocaml_code_buffer) ^ "->";
        ocaml_type lexbuf
otherwise function types can't be properly lexed.
Probably be cool if the lexer was made a bit more
sophisticated .. for example I had


which failed due to a lack of a space between token and <.

I also added:

  | "%type" blank { look_for_type:=true; KWD_TYPE }

in a vain attempt to get it to ignore my %type commands.

It should be possible to make it work with an ocamlyacc
spec with a bit of fiddling shouldn't it?
