- [configuration of findlib/ocamlfind] .sh "general" there are three possibilities to configure the findlib library: build time: .re before findlib is compiled, a "configure" script is invoked to figure out the settings that are most likely to work on the system. most settings are simply entered into text files and can easily be changed after installation. the following properties cannot be changed later because they are compiled into the resulting binaries: \h'-3m'\z\h'3m' .ft r the default location of the configuration file findlib.conf. however, you can set a different location by the environment variable ocamlfind_conf . \h'-3m'\z\h'3m' .ft r whether the installed o'caml version supports autolinking or not. configuration file findlib.conf: .re an initial version of this file is generated by the configure script, but you are free to modify it later. most important, this file contains the system-wide search path used to look up packages, and the default location where to install new packages. all files with the suffix ".conf" found in the directory findlib.conf.d are also scanned for parameters. environment variables: .re the settings of findlib.conf can be overridden by environment variables. last but not least, several settings can also be passed as command-line options, or by invoking the function findlib.init .
