;; caml-info.el --- contextual completion and help to caml-mode

;; Didier Remy, November 2001.

;; This provides two functions completion and help
;; look for caml-complete and caml-help

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;;
;;  This is a preliminary version.
;;
;;  Possible improvements?
;;   - dump some databaes: Info, Lib, ...
;;   - accept a search path for local libraries instead of current dir
;;     (then distinguish between different modules lying in different
;;     directories)
;;   - improve the construction for info files.
;;
;;  Abstract over
;;   - the viewing method and the database, so that the documentation for
;;     and identifier could be search in
;;       * info / html / man / mli's sources
;;       * viewed in emacs or using an external previewer.
;;
;;  Take all identifiers (labels, Constructors, exceptions, etc.)

  "Find documentation for OCaml qualified identifiers.

It attemps to recognize an qualified identifier of the form
``Module . entry'' around point using function `ocaml-qualified-identifier'.

If Module is undetermined it is temptatively guessed from the identifier name
and according to visible modules. If this is still unsucessful,  the user is
then prompted for a Module name.

The documentation for Module is first seach in the info manual if available,
then in the ``module.mli'' source file. The entry is then searched in the
documentation.

Visible modules are computed only once, at the first call.
Modules can be made visible explicitly with `ocaml-open-module' and
hidden with `ocaml-close-module'.

Prefix arg 0 forces recompilation of visible modules (and their content)
from the file content.

Prefix arg 4 prompts for Module and identifier instead of guessing values
from the possition of point in the current buffer.
