It would be much easier to point you to the right functions, if you would give some  more details on what you want to do, e.g. an example command that you want to use, and to tell us, if you want to pass data into it or read data from it, and so on.
The less information you provide, the fuzzier / general the anwers.

It might also interest you, that there is a seperated manual on how to do unix-programming with OCaml.
