Subject: Camlp4 vs Camlp5
Dear list,

I would like to know how do you think Camlp4 and Camlp5 compare in terms hacker-friendliness. About three weeks ago I linked in a PoC the Ocaml file parsing loop and the Ocaml pp mechanism I found in Camlp5. I learned that Pcaml is an interface file that binds together parsing and pp for Ocaml, but I wish they were separated one from the other. At some point in the future I will recode my PoC into stable code, so I wonder if you think I should stick to Camlp5, have a look to Camlp4, or go back and figure it out by myself.

Best regards,
