To run the tests you will need
OUnit. Install it using
opam install ounit
A Makefile is provided with a default target to compile your solution and run the tests. At the command line, type:
utop is a command line program which allows you to run Ocaml code interactively. The easiest way to install it is via opam:
opam install utop
Consult utop for more detail.
