Subject: ocamlclean : an OCaml bytecode cleaner (Was: (Announce) "OCAPIC" : OCaml for PIC18 microcontrollers)
Dear all,

ocamlclean is now available in a separate package so that you don't have to get the whole ocapic distribution just to try ocamlclean.

More information:
ocamlclean takes a bytecode executable (which are generally but not necessarily produced by "ocamlc" compiler) and reduces its size by eliminating some dead code. Dead code is discriminated statically. (It's impossible to eliminate all dead code, but in some cases it can reduce bytecode executables tremendously) It is meant to be compatible with standard bytecode such as produced by ocamlc. (DBUG section is currently not supported and is removed during the cleaning process. Other unsupported sections are left untouched.)
