What is the defacto OCaml build tool?

I had wondered:

What is the defacto OCaml build tool?

to which Sylvain replied:

– ocamlbuild (in OCaml distribution)
– OCamlMakefile
Some other use OMake.

One thought on “What is the defacto OCaml build tool?”

  1. I just tried Omake (for latex, actually) and it seems to work well.
    Also, it has a option (-P) that automatically rebuilds when there’s a change in a file, and this is quite convenient when you have a dvi/pdf reader that reloads modified files on the fly.
    But omake is not maintained, and seems to depend on FAM, while some systems use Gamin instead (for the fs tracking feature.)
