       caml2html - pretty print OCaml in html and latex


       caml2html [Options...] files...


       caml2html pretty prints OCaml source code as html or LaTex files. The pretty printing uses
       colors and adds tool‐tips with type  annotations  if  the  corresponding  .annot  file  is

       standard output.

       Process many files into a single file:

              caml2html -o result.html *.mli *.ml

       Process many files, and create one HTML page for each file:

              caml2html *.ml

       You can use HTML in the comments of the source file, for instance, to insert hyperlinks:

              (* This is
                 <a href="">This is a link to</a>. *)

       Note,  that  one HTML tag cannot span over several lines, and that the ordinary characters
       <, > and & must be written as &lt;, &gt; and &amp;.

       Custom comment handlers To implement an include directive for comments, use

              caml2html -ext "include: xargs cat"


               (*include i.html *)
               let f x = 2 * x + 1


               ... contens of i.html ...
               let f x = 2 * x + 1

       as result.
