I’m doing a project to modify MLton’s garbage collector. But working with MLton’s source code is a bit painful. The only way to do it was to use the good old “grep” command. Since I’m not quite familiar with Standard ML, I want more hints / error checks while I’m editing the code.

What to Expect from this Post

Currently the MLton runtime compiles against Sparc RTEMS (Leon 3 BSP). The MLton is capable of recognizing RTEMS and Sparc in -target flag. But the compiled executable does not work.
