When a Camlp5 grammar entry fails, it raises an exception defined in
the Camlp5 module Ploc. This exception encloses the location and the
real exception. Do:
    try Grammar.Entry.parse your_entry with
      Ploc (loc, exn) ->
        ... print the location 'loc' of the error if you want using
            the module Ploc
        ... print the real exception 'exn' using the OCaml module Printexc
            or raises it to make the OCaml runtime display it

If your grammar is in the file 'foo.ml', compile it with ocamlc. It
produces the file 'foo.cmo'. And to compile a file 'bar.ml' using your
grammar, do:
    ocamlc -pp 'camlp5 ./foo.cmo pr_dump.cmo' bar.ml
