NOTE: After cloning the repo, you might want to invoke "sbcl --script scripts/relinj.lisp" to compile the supporting classes in linj/ defined in Linj itself to Java. The resulting Java files (but not their compilation to class files) are actually checked into the repo. Currently, by invoking relinj.lisp no changes to them should be visible. README for Linj_1.x January 22, 2011 Overview -------- Linj is a Common Lisp-like language that tries to be as similar to Common Lisp as possible but allowing Linj programs to be compiled into human-readable Java code. Linj was originally created by eValuator, Lda, and this code was last updated in 2004. The software is no longer supported or maintained by eValuator or António Menezes Leitão. In January, 2011, António Menezes Leitão gave Zachary Beane permission to publish the sources under the MIT license. License ------- This Linj distribution is available under the MIT license. See the file LICENSE.txt for details. Requirements ------------ The Linj compiler is written in Common Lisp and currently runs on - CMU Common Lisp 19a for Linux - SBCL 0.8.15 for Linux and MacOSX - Allegro CL 6.2 for Linux and Windows You should download the version that matches your working environment. Linj requires a JDK that conforms to the Java 1.1 Core API. Installation ----------- Assuming that you extracted the files in the Linj distribution to the path <path>, start your Common Lisp environment and evaluate the expression: (load "<path>/load") Use ---------- Put your Linj program into a file named according to the Linj conventions for classes (lowercase with hyphens), e.g., test.linj and invoke the Linj compiler using the (quoted) name of the file (without extension) and (optionally) the pathname to the directory containing that file. As an example, assuming that test.linj is in /tmp, use: (linj2java 'test "/tmp/") If the file test.linj is in the current directory, you can omit the second argument. If you have several linj files in a directory you can compile all of them using (linj2java-directory <path to the directory>) The <path to the directory> defaults to the current directory. Support Files ------------- This Linj distribution also includes several pre-defined supporting classes (defined in Linj itself). You will find them on the <path>/linj/ subdirectory. For these classes to be useful, you must define your CLASSPATH to include the directory containing the file you are just reading. As an example, if your Linj distribution is on the path "/home/user/linj_1.0/" then you should set your CLASSPATH as follows: export CLASSPATH=/home/user/linj1.0/:$CLASSPATH Documentation ------------- You can find a Linj tutorial in doc/tutorial.pdf. One (unfinished) manual can be found at doc/linj-manual.pdf Feedback & Support ------------------ Linj is no longer officially supported or maintained and is available only on an as-is basis. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- "Java" is a registered trademark of Sun Microsystems.
