This distribution also contains an interpreter for GraNoLa/M written in

You need an Erlang compiler at least at language version 4.4 to compile

To build the
granolam module, run the script
After the module is built, run the script
granolam_shell in the
directory to start a GraNoLa/M shell.
Or you can run
bin/granolam run filename to run a GraNoLa/M program
written in a text file on the filesystem. This uses
escript, so you
don't have to build the module first. But you need
To run the built-in test cases, start an Erlang shell and run
where N is an integer from 1 to 7.
