Subject: Interface C and Caml
Hi all,

I'm trying to interface Ocaml with C code. But unfortunately I don't 
know why it doesn't work well...
This is my caml code (truc.ml) :

let test_char a = a+1
let _ = Callback.register "caml_test_char" test_char;;

and this is my C code (test.c) :

#include <stdio.h>
#include <caml/mlvalues.h>
#include <caml/callback.h>

int test_char(int n)
{
  static value * test_char_closure = NULL;
  if (test_char_closure == NULL)
        {
        test_char_closure = caml_named_value("caml_test_char");
        }
  return Int_val(caml_callback(*test_char_closure, Val_int(n)));
}

int main(int argc, char ** argv)
{
  int result;
  caml_startup(argv);
  result = test_char(10);
  printf("%d\n", result);
  return 0;
}

I obtain the final executable by typing this command :
ocamlopt -cc "gcc" -o test truc.ml test.c

But if I try to do the same thing by typing :

ocamlopt -output-obj truc.ml -o truc.o
gcc -c test.c
gcc -o test test.o truc.o -L/usr/lib/ocaml/3.09.2 -lasmrun

I obtain :

What is wrong ? Does anyone has the same problem ?
