SYNOPSISjocamldep [ -I lib-dir ] filename ...
The jocamldep(1) command scans a set of Objective Caml source files (.ml and .mli files) for references to external compilation units, and outputs dependency lines in a format suitable for the make(1) utility. This ensures that make will compile the source files in the correct order, and recompile those files that need to when a source file is modified.
The typical usage is:
jocamldep options *.mli *.ml > .depend
where .depend is the file that should contain the dependencies.
The following command-line option is recognized by jocamldep(1).
- -I directory
Add the given directory to the list of directories searched for
source files. If a source file foo.ml mentions an external
compilation unit Bar, a dependency on that unit's interface
bar.cmi is generated only if the source for bar is found in the
current directory or in one of the directories specified with
Otherwise, Bar is assumed to be a module form the standard library,
and no dependencies are generated. For programs that span multiple
directories, it is recommended to pass
the same -I options that are passed to the compiler.
Generate dependencies for a pure native-code program (no bytecode
version). When an implementation file (.ml file) has no explicit
interface file (.mli file),
generates dependencies on the
bytecode compiled file (.cmo file) to reflect interface changes.
This can cause unnecessary bytecode recompilations for programs that
are compiled to native-code only. The flag
causes dependencies on native compiled files (.cmx) to be generated instead
of on .cmo files. (This flag makes no difference if all source files
have explicit .mli interface files.)
