As far as I know it can load only object files so you would have to compile your .ml file before. Not sure there is a better alternative.Mark Bradley also suggested:
You can try ocaml_plugin (also uses dynlink but will compile the .ml file before loading, I've also never tried it from the OCaml repl): https://github.com/janestreet/ocaml_plugin

there is a new test release of omake. It includes all the developments since I started taking omake over last year, in particular: - omake got faster for large projects (this part of the work was funded by Lexifi) - there is a new bootstrap system that unifies Unix and Windows - it now also works with the MinGW port - a couple of bugs were fixed This is a test release. In particular, it would be good to know whether the new bootstrap works everywhere, and whether I package omake up correctly. The tarball can be downloaded at http://projects.camlcity.org/projects/omake.html. The repository is now at Github, https://github.com/gerdstolpmann/omake. There is also an issue tracker. omake requires now ocaml-4.02 as minimum.

We are in the process of removing the following features from Bisect_ppx, as we don’t believe they are used: - combine expressions (reporter’s -combine-expr) - XML output - EMMA output - “bisect” output  - point kinds (mentioned earlier ) We would also like to remove “dump” output, but we are using it internally for testing. Please let me know of any objections. Best, Anton : https://github.com/aantron/bisect_ppx/pull/106 : https://sympa.inria.fr/sympa/arc/caml-list/2016-06/msg00004.htmlAnton Bachin added:
I would like to clarify that -combine-expr is not about combining multiple output files as in bisect-ppx-report -html report *.out That is not being removed. -combine-expr is a separate feature that allows visitation counts of two or more separate sets of *.out files to be manipulated, for example by subtracting them, to obtain a new report.
