ml1 is a general purpose macro processor which allows its users to augment any existing programming language by adding new statements (or other syntactic forms) of their own choosing and in their own notation. These new features must be expandable in terms of the existing language.
ml1 is also useful for systematic editing, i.e. the replacement of one string, possibly involving parameters, by another string throughout a program or any other piece of text.
This manual page merely summarises the ml1 command line options; consult the full ML/I documentation for anything else.
The options are as follows:
 
Print the version number of this implementation of ml1.
n
 
n
Set the amount of workspace available to ml1 to n words (the default is 5000 words).
file
 
file
Nominate file as the listing file. The default is that no listing is produced. The name - is taken to mean the standard output.
file
 
file
Nominate file as the debugging file. By default, this is the standard error stream (usually the user's terminal). The name - is taken to mean the standard output.
file
 
file
Nominate file as an output file. Up to four output files may be specified; each must be preceded by the -o flag. If no output files are specified, the standard output is used. An output file named - is also taken to be the standard output.
All other arguments to ml1 are taken to be the names of input files; there may be no more than five of these. If no input file is specified, the standard input is used. The name - is also taken to mean the standard input.

The ml1 utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
