ROTOR is a tool for refactoring large, multi-file OCaml codebases. It is written in OCaml.
ROTOR has been developed at the University of Kent, as part of an EPSRC-funded project on Trustworthy Refactoring.
Currently, ROTOR can perform renaming of top-level value bindings within
modules, and also carry out a fine-grained module dependency analysis of an
OCaml codebase. It uses

ROTOR can be installed via OPAM.
> opam install rotor
It is invoked on the command line.
> rotor rename <identifier> <new-name>
ROTOR outputs a
diff patch which can be applied to your codebase to effect the
