Additional InformationI am using Frama-C 19.0 Potassium, which I installed using opam pin. I am using version 2.0.4 of opam. I am using the default versions of OCaml and Clang for this version of Ubuntu: OCaml 4.05.0 and clang version 6.0.0.
TagsNo tags attached.

Indeed, this file inadvertently uses a construction that only appeared in OCaml 4.06.0. If it's possible for you, the quickest workaround would be to opam switch to a newer version of OCaml.

Of course, arguably Frama-Clang should support the same OCaml versions than Frama-C, hence OCaml 4.05 as well. We'll try to propose something in the next release.

After installing OCaml 4.06.0 using opam and trying again, there appear to be no errors. Thanks!
