Subject: Re: [Caml-list] How can I use a library in a toplevel created by js_of_ocaml?

I could.  In addition to adding myFac to the argument of
jsoo_listunits:

> (action (run jsoo_listunits -o %{targets} stdlib myFac))

I inserted myFac as one of the libraries:

(executables
  (names eval)
  (libraries
    myFac
    js_of_ocaml-compiler
    js_of_ocaml-toplevel)
  (link_flags (:standard -linkall))
  (preprocess (pps js_of_ocaml-ppx)))

and added the path to the cmi file of myFac library to the argument
of js_of_ocaml.

-I /home/asai/.opam/ocaml-base-compiler.4.04.0/lib/myFac/

(I wonder if I always have to write this path.  Maybe it could be
automatically searched (as it is an opam library) or there is a
better way to write it rather than writing the absolute path.)

I imagine that:

- executables have to contain libraries to be used in the toplevel.
- The --export option exports to the toplevel those modules that are
  required in the toplevel.
- export.txt specifies which modules to be exported.

Correct me if I am wrong.  I still welcome any documents to study.

Sincerely,
