       camlp5  is  a  Pre-Processor-Pretty-Printer  for OCaml, parsing a source file and printing
       some result on standard output.

       camlp5o, camlp5r and camlp5sch are versions of camlp5 with some files already loaded  (see

       camlp5o.cma, camlp5r.cma and camlp5sch.cma are files to be loaded in ocaml toplevel to use
       the camlp5 machinery

       mkcamlp5 and mkcamlp5.opt creates camlp5 executables with almost  the  same  options  than
       ocamlmktop. See further.

       ocpp5  is an universal preprocessor, treating any kind of source file, generating the same
       text with the possible quotations expanded.

       camlp5o.opt and camlp5r.opt are versions of camlp5o and camlp5r compiled  by  the  native-
       code  compiler ocamlopt. They are faster but not extensible. And they are not available in
       all installations of camlp5.


       The load options select parsing and  printing  actions  recorded  in  OCaml  object  files
       (ending  with  .cmo  or  .cma).  Several  usage of these options are authorized. They must
       precede the other options.

       An optional -- may end the load options.

       -I directory
              Add directory in the search path for files loaded.  Unless  the  option  -nolib  is
              used,  the  camlp5  library directory is appended to the path. Warning: there is no
              automatic search in the current directory: add "-I ." for this.

       -where Print camlp5 library directory name and exit.

       -nolib No automatic search for objects files in camlp5 library directory.

              The file is loaded in camlp5 core.


       The others options are:

       file   Treat file as an interface file if it ends with .mli and as an implementation  file
              if it ends with .ml.

       -intf file
              Treat file as an interface file, whatever its extension.

       -impl file
              Treat file as an implementation file, whatever its extension.

              Generate unsafe accesses to arrays and strings.

              Do not compile assertion checks.

              More verbose in parsing errors.

       -QD file
              Dump in file in case of syntax error in the result of a quotation expansion.

       -o out-file
              Print  the  result  on  out-file  instead  of  standard output. File is opened with
              open_out_bin (see OCaml library Pervasives).

       -v     Print the version number and exit.

       -help  Print the available options and exit. This  print  includes  the  options  possibly
              added by the loaded object files.

       The  others  options  can  be  extended by loaded object files. The provided files add the
       following options:

       -l line-length
              Added by pr_o.cmo and pr_r.cmo: set the line length (default 78).

       -sep string
              Added by pr_o.cmo and pr_r.cmo:  print  this  string  between  phrases  instead  of

       -no_ss Added by pr_o.cmo: do not print double semicolons

       -D ident
              Added by pa_macro.cmo: define the ident.

       -U ident
              Added by pa_macro.cmo: undefine the ident.


       These files are installed in the directory /usr/lib/ocaml/camlp5.

       Parsing files:
           pa_r.cmo: revised syntax
           pa_rp.cmo: streams and parsers

           pa_scheme.cmo: scheme syntax
           pa_extend.cmo: syntax extension for grammars
           pa_extfold.cmo: extension of pa_extend with FOLD0 and FOLD1

           pa_lefteval.cmo: left-to-right evaluation of parameters
           pa_pragma.cmo: directive #pragma

       Printing files:

           pr_ro.cmo: revised syntax for objects and labels
           pr_rp.cmo: try to rebuild streams and parsers syntax

           q_phony.cmo: keeping quotations for pretty printing

       The command camlp5o is a shortcut for:
           camlp5 pa_o.cmo pa_op.cmo pr_dump.cmo

       The command camlp5r is a shortcut for:
           camlp5 pa_r.cmo pa_rp.cmo pr_dump.cmo

       The command camlp5sch is a shortcut for:
           camlp5 pa_scheme.cmo pr_dump.cmo

       The file camlp5o.cma can be loaded in the toplevel to start camlp5 with OCaml syntax.

       The file camlp5r.cma can be loaded in the toplevel to start camlp5 with revised syntax.

       The file camlp5sch.cma can be loaded in the toplevel to start camlp5 with Scheme syntax.


       mkcamlp5  and  mkcamlp5.opt  creates  camlp5 executables with almost the same options than
       ocamlmktop. The version mkcamlp5.opt can create native code executables,  faster  but  not

       For mkcamlp5, the interfaces to be visible must be explicitly added in the command line as
       ".cmi" files. For example, how to add the the OCaml module "str":
           mkcamlp5 -custom str.cmi str.cma -cclib -lstr -o camlp5str


       The following environment variable is also consulted:

              Set the grammars parsing algorithm parameters.  This variable must be a sequence of
              parameter  specifications.   A  parameter  specification  is  a  letter  optionally
              followed by an = and a value. There are four possible parameters:

       b (backtrack)
              Set the backtrack algorithm as default.

       t (trace)
              Trace symbols (terminals and non-terminals) while parsing with backtracking.

       y (trace-stalling)
              In backtracking, trace the advance in the input stream (number of unfrozen  tokens)
              and the possible stalling (number of tokens tests).

       l (maximum-stalling)
              Set the maximum stalling value.
