I would recommend camlp4+PreCast because it's easier.

However camlp4 already have a builtin module very similar (called Camlp4DebugParser).

Here is a brief introduction...

(*
 * No debugging code at all:
 *   $ camlp4o -parser Camlp4DebugParser debug_extension.ml
 *   true
 * Debugging code for lexing:
 *   $ STATIC_CAMLP4_DEBUG='lexing' camlp4o -parser Camlp4DebugParser debug_extension.ml
 *  let () =
 *    if Camlp4.Debug.mode "lexing"
 *    then Debug.printf "lexing" "TOKEN: Int %d" (2 * 21)
 *    else ()
 *  in true
 *
 * Debugging code for lexing and parsing:
 *   $ STATIC_CAMLP4_DEBUG='lexing:parsing' camlp4o -parser Camlp4DebugParser debug_extension.ml
 *   let () =
 *     if Camlp4.Debug.mode "lexing"
 *     then Debug.printf "lexing" "TOKEN: Int %d" (2 * 21)
 *     else () in
 *   let () =
 *     if Camlp4.Debug.mode "parsing"
 *     then Debug.printf "parsing" "RULE: ..."
 *     else ()
 *   in true
 *
 * Debugging code for any section:
 *  $ STATIC_CAMLP4_DEBUG='*' camlp4o -parser Camlp4DebugParser debug_extension.ml
 *  ... same output as above ...
 *
 * When you program is compiled you can use the CAMLP4_DEBUG variable to
 * activate some debugging sections.
 *
 * CAMLP4_DEBUG_FILE manage where messages goes (default is stderr).
 *)

camlp4_debug lexing  "TOKEN: Int %d" (2 * 21) in
camlp4_debug parsing "RULE: ..." in
true
