Summary0006053: less verbose flags for ocamlbuild
DescriptionWe're using ocamlbuild and ocamlfind for all of our examples in Real World OCaml, and it's painfully verbose to use:

$ ocamlbuild -use-classic-display -use-ocamlfind -tag thread -pkg core foo.native

...for every single build command. It would be wonderful if a couple of the more frequently used flags could provide shorter alternatives. My ideal command line above would be:

$ ocamlbuild -vf -tag thread -pkg core foo.native

(i.e. map -use-classic-display to -v and -use-ocamlfind to -f, since neither of those can be shortened via alternative mechanisms such as a _tags file)
TagsNo tags attached.

Another suggestion from Gabriel was to provide an "ocamlbuildf" binary that defaults to -use-ocamlfind. This would also solve our book verbosity problem.

ocamlbuild is now a separate project that lives on GitHub.
