I’m writing a new “Up and Running with OCaml” page for ocaml.org, and I really want to make sure all the instructions work on Windows.
The only thing still eluding me is getting merlin working with Vim on the recommended fdopen Windows distribution:
I have been to the oracle, but they do not know:
So, does anyone have a success report? Presently I am following the instructions printed when merlin is installed via opam. The ocamlmerlin executable is in the path. But :MerlinTypeOf, for example, just says “unknown command”. These instructions work fine for me on OS X and Linux.
I am using the vim installed by the cygwin installer, and running it from the OCaml64 window installed by the fdopen Windows OCaml Installer.
Thanks for any pointers.
