OCaml, Eclipse and OcaIDE Setup
You may skip "Install OCaml" and "Install Eclipse" if working on SEAS lab machines.
Install OCaml. (The newest version is 4.0, but we have
encountered some issues with that version and Eclipse.) We recommend:
- To run Eclipse, a Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
must be installed. This will already be the case on
most modern machines, but you can use this link to
check if Java is installed on your machine.
Visit the Eclipse download page.
Click on the link for your platform on the right side of the screen
and install it by simply unpacking the downloaded file onto your desktop.
Note: The 64-bit Windows version of Eclipse
may not be able to locate Java installations. If this happens, use
the 32-bit Windows version instead.
Launch Eclipse. The first time you run Eclipse, you need to choose a workspace (a folder that stores your projects).
Use the default location that Eclipse suggests, or choose your own location.
