The easiest way to install LML is to use the Debian GNU/Linux operating system. You can then use the command apt-get install cl-lml2 to automatically download and install the LML2 package.

On a non-Debian system, you need to have ASDF installed to load the system definition file. You will need to change the source pathname in the system file to match the location where you have installed LML.


Currently, there is no documentation on the functions provided by LML2. However, the source code is instructive and there are example files included in the LML2 package.


   (:i "The square of the first five integers are: )"
   (loop as x from 1 to 5 
     (lml-format " ~D" (* x x))))
The square of the first five integers are: 1 4 9 16 25
