Subject: Behavior of camlp4o when used with -pp?
    Dear list,
 I'm currently faced with a weird behaviour (bug?) of camlp4.

Assuming the existence of a file foo.ml, possibly empty.

camlp4o -no_comments foo.ml

understands option "-no_comments" correctly and pretty-prints the
contents of foo.ml, minus comments


However, when using camlp4o as a preprocessor,

ocamlc -i -pp "camlp4o -no_comments" foo.ml
-no_comments: unknown or misused option
Use option -help for usage
File "foo.ml", line 1, characters 0-1:
Error: Preprocessor error



Is this normal? Is there a workaround for this?

Thanks,
 David
