       cmigrep - search in ocaml compiled interface files


       cmigrep <options> <module-expression>


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the cmigrep command.  This manual
       page was written for the  Debian  GNU/Linux  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       cmigrep  allows  to  search  for  information in compiled interfaces of
       OCaml modules.  By default, the search applies to the modules described
       in  the  .cmi  files  in the curent directory and in the ocaml standard
       directory, but this can be changed with the -I option (see below).

       The argument <module-expr> can be an exact  module  name,  or  a  shell
       wildcard.  Multiple  modules  can  be  specified.  Example:  "ModA ModB
       Foo*.Make" means to search ModA, ModB, and  any  submodule  Make  of  a
       module that starts with Foo.


   General Options
       -I directory
              Add directory to the search path for modules

       -package packages
              comma separated list of findlib packages to search

       open modules
              comma separated list of open modules (in order!)

       -help, --help
              display list of options
