There is now a package "godi-janestreet-core" in GODI (version 3.10 only). It has been only minimally tested, and there is one known issue: you must provide "-thread" to the compiler when you link against it. In OCamlMakefile-speak, this means set THREADS = yes. To get the toplevel to work: # #use "topfind";; - : unit = () Findlib has been successfully loaded. Additional directives: #require "package";; to load a package #list;; to list the available packages #camlp4o;; to load camlp4 (standard syntax) #camlp4r;; to load camlp4 (revised syntax) #predicates "p,q,...";; to set these predicates Topfind.reset();; to force that packages will be reloaded #thread;; to enable threads - : unit = () # #thread;; /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/std-lib/threads: added to search path /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/std-lib/unix.cma: loaded /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/std-lib/threads/threads.cma: loaded # #require "core";; /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/std-lib/bigarray.cma: loaded /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/res: added to search path /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/res/res.cma: loaded /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/std-lib/nums.cma: loaded /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/num-top: added to search path /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/num-top/num_top.cma: loaded /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/num: added to search path /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/sexplib: added to search path /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/sexplib/sexplib.cma: loaded /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/bin_prot: added to search path /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/bin_prot/bin_prot.cma: loaded /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/core: added to search path /home/godi/root/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/core/core.cma: loaded If you don't have threads enabled, you'll get one of a number of obscure error messages. We hope to make the thread stuff get pulled in automatically in the next version, but we haven't quite figured out the right findlib incantation yet. Pointers would be appreciated.

I've just deployed another extension of GODI Search. The corpus now also includes the sources the GODI packages are built from, and not only the installed files ("binaries"). This is especially useful if the installed documentation is not complete enough, or to check the details of the implementation. The search is available at http://docs.camlcity.org. It is also possible to browse the sources. As a special feature, it is tried to aggregate binary and source modules into a single view. For example, here is the view on the installed Png modules of camlimages: http://docs.camlcity.org/docs/godipkg/3.10/godi-camlimages/lib/ocaml/pkg-lib/camlimages/png.mli Just click on the "Sources" tab to see possible source files this module could be built from (GODI Search doesn't track that, so we can only guess). Usually, the source files are now only two clicks away from the binary files. This release also includes numerous smaller fixes. Especially, the AJAX feature works now for older Internet Explorers (man, this was a fight).

The good news is that I have my little library for machine-native 64-bit unsigned integers hosted at OCaml Forge now! http://forge.ocamlcore.org/frs/?group_id=23 The bad news is that despite my best attempts I am unable to get it to link with programs compiled with ocamlopt. If anyone would like to help please let me know and I can give you SVN access.
Here is a quick trick to help you read this CWN if you are viewing it using vim (version 6 or greater).
If you know of a better way, please let me know.
If you happen to miss a CWN, you can send me a message and I'll mail it to you, or go take a look at the archive or the RSS feed of the archives.
