Subject: CSL executable for Window s, 1995 vintage. Or Jens Klöumlcker?
Hi --

I recently came across a syntax generator program called SYNGEN, written in
1995 by Jens Klöumlcker.  

My attempts to email Jens at the two addresses I've found for him have
bounced, so I'm wondering if someone here might be able to help me.

SYNGEN is written in Caml Special Light.  Trying to run the bytecode and
source on the latest version of OCMAL doesn't work.  As I've no experience
with the language I'm not sure I could get them working in short order.

I've been able to track down a version of the source for CSL in the obsolete
folder of the inria ftp site, but the promised Windows executable is not

Before I launch into the task of trying to compile a 15 year old program using
modern C compilers, which I suspect isn't going to be straightforward, I
thought I'd ask here if anyone knows where I might find a prebuilt binary of
CSL (CSLRUN etc?) for Windows.

Or are the differences between CSL and OCAML so slight that someone with no
experience should be able to get it working quickly?
