Summary0001540: Debug version of ocaml for win32
DescriptionFull_Name: Ohad Rodeh
Version: 3.06
Submission from: (

The problem is that OCaml does not come with a pre-compiled version built for
debugging under win32. This means that standard debugging techniques under win32
will not work. On win32 the important libraries have version built for
debugging, for example LIBC. I'm asking for the same thing for ocaml. Of course,
the user can do this himself, but this requires CYGWIN to compile ocaml from
scratch, something most users will not bother with.

@dra Could you see what the current situation is for Windows in this regard? The Unix ports now use "-g" for both building the OCaml code of the compilers and the C code of the runtime.
