       utop - Universal toplevel for OCaml


       utop [ options ] [ object-files ] [ script-file ]


       utop  is  a  enhanced  toplevel  for OCaml with many features, including context sensitive

       When you start utop what you see is the prompt followed by a bar containing words. This is
       the  completion  bar,  it contains the possible completion and is updated as you type. The
       highlighted word in the completion bar is the selected word. You can  navigate  using  the
       keys  Alt+Left  and  Alt+Right  and  you can complete using the currently selected word by
       pressing Alt+Tab (you can configure these bindings in the  file  ~/.lambda-term-inputrc  ,
       see lambda-term-inputrc(5) for details).

       utop supports completion on:

               * directives and directive arguments
               * identifiers
               * record fields
               * variants
               * function labels
               * object methods

       Colors  are  by default configured for terminals with dark colors, such as white on black,
       so the prompt may looks too bright on light colors  terminals.  You  can  change  that  by
       setting the color profile of utop. For that type:

               UTop.set_profile UTop.Light;;

       You can then add this line to your ~/.ocamlinit file.

       You  can  enable  basic  syntax  highlighting  in  utop  by  writing a ~/.utoprc file. See
       utoprc(5) for that.

       Finally utop can run in emacs. For that you  have  to  add  the  following  line  to  your
       ~/.emacs file:

               (autoload 'utop "utop" "Toplevel for OCaml" t)

       then  you can run utop by pressing M-x and typing "utop". utop support completion in emacs
       mode. Just press Tab to complete a word. You can also integrate it with the  tuareg,  caml
       or typerex mode. For that add the following lines to your ~/.emacs file:

               (autoload 'utop-minor-mode "utop" "Minor mode for utop" t)
               (add-hook 'tuareg-mode-hook 'utop-minor-mode)


       Same as ocaml(1).
