How To Install ocamlmktop.byte on CentOS 8
In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install ocamlmktop.byte on CentOS 8
yum package managers.
Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update
ocamlmktop.byte as well.
If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:
or if you use
sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install ocaml
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install ocaml
But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.
Short description: ML language implementation with a class-based object system
First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running CentOS 8. This guide was written specifically with a server running CentOS 8 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.
There are several ways to install ocamlmktop.byte on CentOS 8. You can use (links are clickable):
In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.
First, update dnf packages database with
dnf by running the next command:
sudo dnf makecache --refresh
After updating database,
You can install ocamlmktop.byte using
dnf by running the
sudo dnf -y install ocaml
Because ocamlmktop.byte is available in CentOS 8’s default
it is possible to install it from these repositories using the
To begin, update local packages database with
yum using the following command.
sudo yum makecache --refresh
Now can install ocamlmktop.byte package on your server/computer by running the following command:
sudo yum -y install ocaml
To update all the packages available on the system:
If you want to update a specific package like ocamlmktop.byte in this example you should use the following command:
yum update ocaml
To downgrade a package to an earlier version:
yum downgrade ocaml
When you run the
dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated.
However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as
the argument to the dnf update command.
dnf update ocaml
To uninstall only the
ocamlmktop.byte package you can execute
sudo dnf remove ocaml
Objective Caml (OCaml) is an implementation of the ML language, based on the Caml Light dialect extended with a complete class-based object system and a powerful module system in the style of Standard ML. OCaml comprises two compilers. One generates bytecode which is then interpreted by a C program. This compiler runs quickly, generates compact code with moderate memory requirements, and is portable to essentially any 32 or 64 bit Unix platform. Performance of generated programs is quite good for a bytecoded implementation: almost twice as fast as Caml Light 0.7. This compiler can be used either as a standalone, batch-oriented compiler that produces standalone programs, or as an interactive, toplevel-based system. The other compiler generates high-performance native code for a number of processors. Compilation takes longer and generates bigger code, but the generated programs deliver excellent performance, while retaining the moderate memory requirements of the bytecode compiler. It is not available on all arches though. This package contains everything needed to develop OCaml applications, including the graphics libraries.
You now have a full guide on how to install
yum package managers.
Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall
the ocamlmktop.byte from CentOS 8.
