C Headers

The necessary C headers files can be included through the header pseudo-function. The code will be removed from the generated ml file and only appear in the c file:

let%c () = header {|
#include <stdio.h>
external puts: string -> int = "puts"

(* You can also add arbitrary c code there: *)
let%c () = header {|
#define put_own(s) \

external puts_own: string -> int = "puts_own"

The generated c file is of course flat and without any scope. It might be good idea to only add a single let%c () header {| ... |} statement at the top of your file and don’t spread several statements across your file or in different modules. Otherwise a casual reader of your code might draw a wrong conclusion …
