Subject: ocaml ast to machine at runtime
I would like to compile trading systems written in a pascal-like  
programming language to OCaml AST at runtime, convert it to machine  
code and use it from the same running
OCaml program (natdynlink?).

Is it possible to do this without having gcc installed?

The code I'm generating will need to be iterate over an array of
doubles or be called from within the loop on every array element. It
will also use a bunch of helper functions from my existing library.

If I generate the code using LLVM then I'll need to write my helper
functions in C and the only value I get from OCaml would be the
parsing. If I write the helper functions in OCaml then I believe my
loop will be slow as hell due to all the wrapping and unwrapping of
OCaml values.

Any suggestions?

     Thanks, Joel
