Subject: [Caml-list] adding an ocaml interpreter to my C program
It is possible to add many scripting languages as configuration
languages for an arbitrary C program. One can transfer control
to the interpreter, let it use the C bindings to modify program
state, and then get control back. I'll give perl as an example:

void sourceperl(int argc, char **argv) {
        PerlInterpreter gdb_perl = perl_alloc();
        PL_exit_flags |= PERL_EXIT_DESTRUCT_END;
        perl_parse(gdb_perl, NULL, argc, argv, (char **)NULL);


I don't see any obvious way of doing this with ocaml. I could link in
GDB to the toplevel and use the toplevel as a frontend, but that isn't
what I'm interested in doing.

I'm using perl as a powerful macro language for gdb by just doing:
(gdb) sourceperl

I'd like to also be able to support:
(gdb) sourceocaml

Is there any way for me to do this?
