*System Requirements
*Downloading LaViT:  LMNtal Visual Tools (recommended) [#ke9e7abc]

The LMNtal system runs on virtually any platform
(including Windows, Cygwin, and UNIX/Linux) running the
Java Development Kit (JDK) or the Java Runtime Environment (JRE),
version 1.5 or higher.
The simplest way to get started with LMNtal is to ''[[download LaViT (click here)>http://www.ueda.info.waseda.ac.jp/lmntal/lavit/index.php?Download]]'', an integrated development environment (IDE) for LMNtal.
LaViT comes with the whole family of LMNtal subsystems: compiler, runtime, model checker, and visualizer.

To use ''lmnc'' and ''lmnr'' commands (see [[How to Use]] page) or the foreign-language interface, or to create libraries, JDK is required to compile Java programs you provide or generated by
the LMNtal compiler.  Otherwise, JRE should be fine.

*Downloading LMNtal

Click [[''here'':http://www.ueda.info.waseda.ac.jp/lmntal/lmntal-20080828.zip]]
to download the latest version (1.00.20080828) of the LMNtal system.

- The version 0.7 (and up)
supports compilation into Java.
- The version 0.8 (and up) supports
nondeterministic execution mode that explores all reduction paths.
//Click [['''''HERE'''''>http://www.ueda.info.waseda.ac.jp/lmntal/lavit///index.php?Download]] to download the latest version of the LaViT system.

In case you
encounter a problem, [[here:http://www.ueda.info.waseda.ac.jp/lmntal/lmntal-20061218.zip]] is a stable old version (0.86.20061218).
*Downloading the LMNtal Family [#ie8f3d9a]

The old, interpreter version coming as a single .jar file
is still available from the [[Download Interpreter]] page.
If you wish to use different versions of the LMNtal compiler and runtime,
please download one or more of the following.

Downloading SLIM
-SLIM is a lightweight LMNtal runtime written in C.
-Click [[''here'':http://code.google.com/p/slim-runtime]]

- SLIM, a lightweight LMNtal runtime at  [[''[download from github]''>https://github.com/lmntal/slim]]
--An LMNtal runtime written in C, which features nondeterministic search, model checking, and hypergraphs.  When given an LMNtal source file, SLIM internally calls an LMNtal compiler to generate intermediate code.

- UNYO-UNYO, an LMNtal graph visualizer. [[''[download]''>UNYO-UNYO]]

Create a new folder/directory (referred to as $LMNTAL_HOME in
this online manual) and expand the downloaded .zip file there.
That's all!

'''Note''':  The $LMNTAL_HOME folder should '''not''' be created under
"Documents and Settings", "My Documents", or any other folder
whose name contains white spaces.

Three subdirectories, ''bin'', ''lib'', and ''sample'' will be created:
-The ''bin'' subdirectory contains the system (.jar file) and several
shellscripts for Windows NT/2000/XP, Cygwin and UNIX/Linux.
-The ''lib'' subdirectory contains the library API (source and class files).
-The ''sample'' subdirectory contains program examples.

Please note that the API and examples are constantly growing.

Now proceed to the [[How to Use]] page and enjoy.
