Subject: Shared libraries with ocamlopt callable from C (without main())?
hi
I'm thinking about the possibility to use OCaml as an extension
language. If I wanted to call a OCaml function from langX I had to use
a C wrapper.

    langX -> ( C API of langX | C Wrapper | C API of OCaml ) -> OCaml

Maybe I make it more complicated than it is. But could somebody tell
me if ( and maybe how ) this can be done. I made some attempts, but
there is always a main() function involved. But this C wrapper would
be a shared library.

Thanks in advance
