January, 4th - port to Xcode 3 (beta 10)
Objective-Caml is a programming langage created by the INRIA, a french research center in computer science. For more informations, go to the Objective Caml web site. Extract from this site :
Objective Caml is the most popular variant of the Caml language. From a language standpoint, it extends the core Caml language with a fully-fledged object-oriented layer, as well as a powerful module system, all connected by a sound, polymorphic type system featuring type inference.
The Objective Caml system is an industrial-strength implementation of this language, featuring a high-performance native-code compiler (ocamlopt) for 9 processor architectures (IA32, PowerPC, AMD64, Alpha, Sparc, Mips, IA64, HPPA, StrongArm), as well as a bytecode compiler (ocamlc) and an interactive read-eval-print loop (ocaml) for quick development and portability. The Objective Caml distribution includes a comprehensive standard library, a replay debugger (ocamldebug), lexer (ocamllex) and parser (ocamlyacc) generators, a pre-processor pretty-printer (camlp4) and a documentation generator (ocamldoc).
The official Objective-Caml compiler and runtime release only includes command line version of the developer tools. So, you need to use makefiles to deal with more-than-one-file projects. Makefiles are powerful, but a bit complex to use. Even if you may use makefiles in Xcode, it's more practical to have a full integration into Xcode.
This Xcode plugin allow you to :
However, as it's a beta version, it doesn't support yet :
Groups & Files
Errors & warnings, syntax coloration
Compiler build Settings
Linker build Settings
/usr/local/bin(unofficial packaged version here, official installer here).
To install the plugin, you have to put the following files in your Library folder or in the system Library folder :
Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Target Templates/OCaml/
Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Project Templates/OCaml/
To install previous version of the plugin working with xcode 2.3/4/5, available here, you have to put the following files in your Library folder or in the system Library folder :
Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/Plug-ins/
Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/Target Templates/OCaml/
Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/Project Templates/OCaml/
If your ocaml tools are not installed in
/usr/local/bin, you may set up the
installation base path with the following command (it's a per-user setting) :
# ocaml installed with fink : defaults write com.apple.Xcode INOCamlBasePath /sw # ocaml installed with darwinports defaults write com.apple.Xcode INOCamlBasePath /opt/local
