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

Thank you for the e-mail.  It goes great.  Going one step further, can
I do the same if I install fac as an opam library?  Suppose I packaged
fac.ml as a library called myFac and installed fac.cma and fac.cmi via
opam.  Using:

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

I could compile it but I got the "Unbound module Fac" error when I
open index.html.  Is listing myFac in the above line not enough?

As a related question, is there a document I can study that describes:
- what jsoo_listunits does, and
- what the --export option (and other options) of js_of_ocaml does?
