TITLE
  findlib 
SUBTITLE
  Manages reusable software components (packages) 
DESCRIPTION
  The "findlib" library provides a scheme to manage
reusable software components (packages), and
includes tools that support this scheme. Packages
are collections of OCaml modules for which
metainformation can be stored. The packages are
kept in the filesystem hierarchy, but with strict
directory structure. The library contains functions
to look the directory up that stores a package, to
query metainformation about a package, and to
retrieve dependency information about multiple
packages. There is also a tool that allows the user
to enter queries on the command-line. In order to
simplify compilation and linkage, there are new
frontends of the various OCaml compilers that
can directly deal with packages.

RECENT CHANGES
  1.2.4: Adapted to ocaml-3.11. Some fixes for Win32.

1.2.3: Fixes for Mac OS X

1.2.2: Fixes for Win32

1.2: Support for Camlp4 on OCaml 3.10. Better Windows
support.

1.1.2: Fixes for camlp4. Fixes for platforms that do not
support DLLs

1.1.1: Bug fixes for O'Caml 3.09

1.1: Automatic detection of standard compiler options.
Liberated the checks whether a package is already installed.
The .opt compilers are entered into findlib.conf if
available. New: "install" has -optional switch for
optional files. New: "install" has -patch-version to
patch the version into the installed META file. New:
"install" has -patch-rmpkg to remove subpackages from
the installed META file. New: "install" has
-patch-archives which removes non-existing files from
"archive" variables. (This is experimental.)
New: subpackages can be disabled by exists_if.
New: Support for toolchains.
Fix for "remove": -destdir works again.
Fix for "call": CTRL-C works when calling
interactive commands.
Fix for preprocessor packages: Dependencies
on normal packages are resolved.

1.0.4: ocamlmktop sets the new "create_toploop" predicate,
not "toploop". The latter is set during execution of the
toploop, however.

1.0.3: Fixes concerning multi-threading, and static
linking.

1.0.2: Fixes concerning the alternate repository layout

1.0.1: Small fix (some additional cmi files are installed)

1.0: A major change, see the README file for more.
