Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed SML/NJ according this instruction Downloads Unix:

The only file you need to download manually is config.tgz. Unpack, configure by editing config/targets, and install by running config/install.sh. The installer automatically downloads any additional files it might need. For more information, see INSTALL.

I didn't configure config/targets and let it by default.
I installed all this in /usr/local/SML/configure

After this I run from SML folder - config/install.sh

It build all necessary dependance as ml-lpt.tgz, cml.tgz ... into SML folder (I checked).

But after prompt config/install.sh: Installation complete.

I checked typed sml at terminal:

nazar_art@nazar-desctop:/usr/local/SML$ sml
No command 'sml' found, did you mean:
 Command 'wml' from package 'wml' (universe)
 Command 'smi' from package 'scmxx' (universe)
 Command 'smc' from package 'smc' (universe)
 Command 'sma' from package 'sma' (universe)
 Command 'sol' from package 'aisleriot' (main)
 Command 'sm' from package 'sm' (universe)
 Command 'sl' from package 'sl' (universe)
sml: command not found

It should be smt like this - Standard ML of New Jersey v110.75 [built: ...]

Edit:

after running ls -l /usr/local/SML/:

nazar_art@nazar-desctop:~$ ls -l /usr/local/SML/

If sml is in /usr/local/SML directory, you should use it's relative path:

cd /usr/local/SML/bin
./sml

or absolute path:

/usr/local/SML/bin/sml

Or add /usr/local/SML/bin directory to your PATH.

I did this about ./sml it shows bash: ./sml: No such file or directory. But about adding this to my path. At this tutorial they didn't write nothing necessary about this, and this is their main site http://www.smlnj.org. What do you thisnk about this? –  nazar_art Sep 2 '13 at 21:34
    
@What is the output of ls -l /usr/local/SML/ command? As you can see there is no sml file there. –  Radu Rădeanu Sep 3 '13 at 4:06
    
I updated question. But sml at console should open the SML console - Standard ML of New Jersey v110.75 [built: ...] and open SML console, you can type 1 + 1; + Enter. the SML interpreter should print something like this: val it = 2 : int. To exit the interpreter, type Control-D. –  nazar_art Sep 3 '13 at 9:35

@nazar_art Have you read smlnj.org/dist/working/110.75/NOTES/INSTALL ? There is a section: 2.5. What needs to be on my PATH? Also, I edited my answer. –  Radu Rădeanu Sep 3 '13 at 9:48
