Dear all,

First of all, I'd like to thank Stephen for his warm welcome and I'd
like to say that I'm just starting to work with MLton and SML at all so
I think I'll have a lot of time ahead of me to work in to it.

I've created a MLton binary ebuild for Gentoo GNU/Linux, which will be
available tomorrow at my homepage, if anyone is interested. I've also
send a enhancement report for Gentoo bug tracking system so that they
had the ebuild to portage (their base package system).

I'm working in Automated Theorem Prover, trying to integrate NuPRL5 and
Isabelle and I hope to be able to port Isabelle to MLton. 

Well, I think it's all for now. I'll just post a question to the user
mailing list. ;) And when I have some deeper questions regarding MLton
I'll post here. 

Oh, I was about to forget... My personal email is pocm at
mega.ist.utl.pt. This one pocm at netvisao.pt is only used for mailing
list archiving. If you want to contact me please send the email to the
former address.

Thanks you all once again,

Best Regards,

Paulo Matos
