   Fair answer.  But I'm sure you understood my question, didn't you?
I try :-)

   Sorry if I'm not a unix guru, but the fact is that I did not find the solution.
My point was: it's not an OCaml-related issue (which obviously is not
the answer you expect).

   So.  Suppose there is some short tricks/recipes list about OCaml
