(** cmt and cmti files format. *)

(** The layout of a cmt file is as follows:
      <cmt> := \{<cmi>\} <cmt magic> \{cmt infos\} \{<source info>\}
    where <cmi> is the cmi file format:
      <cmi> := <cmi magic> <cmi info>.
    More precisely, the optional <cmi> part must be present if and only if
    the file is:
    - a cmti, or
    - a cmt, for a ml file which has no corresponding mli (hence no
    corresponding cmti).

    Thus, we provide a common reading function for cmi and cmt(i)
    files which returns an option for each of the three parts: cmi
    info, cmt info, source info. *)

(** [read filename] opens filename, and extract both the cmi_infos, if
    it exists, and the cmt_infos, if it exists. Thus, it can be used
    with .cmi, .cmt and .cmti files.

    .cmti files always contain a cmi_infos at the beginning. .cmt files
    only contain a cmi_infos at the beginning if there is no associated
    .cmti file.
