[MLton] Install problem
Mon, 3 Nov 2003 08:23:22 -0600
Dear Stephen Weeks:
Thanks for your help. I'm using the gcc 3.3.1. I can try the other version.
I compiled the src in redhat linux 9 too, it works well.
By the way, do you have any suggestion for the debugging? I'm not familiar with ML language. Can I set breakpoints in my program or can I see the values of variant in the running time?
