Summary0004356: Ocamlbuild manual lacks examples
DescriptionThe last few sections of the ocamlbuild manual need far more examples. It is clear that the _tags file is very expressive, but I have no idea how to use it.

In particular, the following examples are needed (for me, anyway):

1) Using ocamlbuild to make a toplevel executable (with ocamlmktop, for instance)
2) Using ocamlbuild to link with C code
3) Using ocamlbuild for a project with multiple targets

One can probably infer all these things from the text, but I lack the (time*intelligence) to do so.
Additional InformationI would really recommend an "examples" section, with at least 10 complete, downloadable examples. I would write them myself if I understood ocamlbuild better.

Other than that, great job with ocamlbuild!
TagsNo tags attached.
