To install this package, run in Emacs:
M-x package-install RET sml-mode RET
SML-MODE is a major Emacs mode for editing Standard ML. It provides syntax highlighting and automatic indentation and comes with sml-proc which allows interaction with an inferior SML interactive loop. This release should work on any recent version of Emacs or XEmacs. If it doesn't: complain. Some more or less out of date documentation can be found in TeXinfo format. Check the INSTALL file for installation instructions. Check the NEWS file for a list of changes in this version. Check the BUGS and TODO file before sending me bug reports and requests for enhancements. Send any complaint/question/praise/ice-cream to me, Stefan Monnier <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Changes since 6.8: - new var sml-abbrev-skeletons to control whether to include skeletons in the main abbrev table. Changes since 5.0: - sml-electric-pipe-mode to make the | key electric. - Removal of a lot of compatibility code. Requires Emacs-24. - Integrate in GNU ELPA. Changes since 4.1: - New indentation code using SMIE when available. - `sml-back-to-outer-indent' is now on S-tab (aka `backtab') rather than M-tab. - Support for electric-layout-mode and electric-indent-mode. - `sml-mark-defun' tries to be more clever. - A single file (sml-mode.el) is needed unless you want to use an interactive process like SML/NJ, or if your Emacs does not provide SMIE. Changes since 4.0: - Switch to GPLv3+. - When possible (i.e. running under Emacs>=23), be case-sensitive when expanding abbreviations, and don't expand them in comments and strings. - When you `next-error' to a type error, highlight the actual parts of the types that differ. - Flush the recorded errors not only upon sml-compile and friends, but also when typing commands directly at the prompt. - New command sml-mlton-typecheck. - Simple support to parse errors and warnings in MLton's output. - Simple support for MLton's def-use files. Changes since 3.9.5: - No need to add the dir to your load-path any more. The sml-mode-startup.el file does it for you. - Symbols like -> can be displayed as real arrows. See sml-font-lock-symbols. - Fix some incompatibilities with the upcoming Emacs-21.4. - Indentation rules improved. New customizable variable `sml-rightalign-and'. Also `sml-symbol-indent' is now customizable. Changes since 3.9.3: - New add-log support (try C-x 4 a from within an SML function). - Imenu support - sml-bindings has disappeared. - The code skeletons are now abbrevs as well. - A new *sml* process is sent the content of sml-config-file (~/.sml-proc.sml) if it exists. - `sml-compile' works yet a bit differently. The command can begin with `cd "path";' and it will be replaced by OS.FileSys.chDir. - run-sml now pops up the new buffer. It can also run the command on another machine. And it always prompts for the command name. Use a prefix argument if you want to give args or to specify a host on which to run the command. - mouse-2 to yank in *sml* should work again (but won't work for next-error any more). - New major-modes sml-cm-mode, sml-lex-mode and sml-yacc-mode. - sml-load-hook has disappeared as has inferior-sml-load-hook. - sml-mode-startup.el is now automatically generated and you're supposed to `load' it from .emacs or site-start.el. - Minor bug fixes.
