Hello All,

I am an OCaml promoter inside my organization (thousands of physicists & 

I would like to set a demo (available thru our intranet) usable by
anyone (people have Win95 PCs and Unix workstation). The most sexy
approach would be a Ocaml (or even a tiny CAML subset)
interactive toplevel interpreter thru Web (HTML forms).

I looked inside ocaml-2.00/toplevel and it seems to me that changing
the read compile execute print loop is not really trivial...

Did anyone coded such a thing?

Otherwise, I'll switch to a telnet session -essentially a guestcaml
login whose shell is Ocaml (with a security wrapper doing chroot

Thanks for reading.
