Process many files into a single file:

caml2html -o result.html *.mli *.ml

Process many files, and create one HTML page for each file:

caml2html *.ml

You can use HTML in the comments of the source file, for instance, to insert hyperlinks:

(* This is file1.ml.
<a href="#file2.ml">This is a link to file2.ml</a>. *)

Note, that one HTML tag cannot span over several lines, and that the ordinary characters
<, > and & must be written as &lt;, &gt; and &amp;.

Custom comment handlers To implement an include directive for comments, use

caml2html -ext "include: xargs cat" example.ml


(*include i.html *)
let f x = 2 * x + 1


... contens of i.html ...
let f x = 2 * x + 1

as result.
