MPS issue job000542

TitleNo MPS user manual
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionThe MPS needs a user manual, for people writing clients.
AnalysisThere are some relevant documents in the old MMDoc, which can be redacted and imported. See also job000537 and job000538. Some subjects belong in a user manual, and some in a programmer's guide (see job000543).

Check in HTML version of the manual (writable on client) so that it will display automatically on the Ravenbrook server and so that we can easily include it in product releases.
157364 open 2006-02-22 12:28:08 Richard Kistruck MPS: a simple walkthrough of writing "hello world" using the MPS.
This version shows how to find and use:
  - the main "mps.h" header file;
  - the additional MPS header file "mpsacl.h";
  - (in "mpsacl.h") the identifier function "mps_arena_class_cl" for the "CL" arena class we want to use;
And build and link with:
  - the MPS library "mps.a";
  - the example plinth "mpsplan.a". Shell code lines must start with percent _and_ space.
