 +<​code>​ 
 +$ cd MFM 
 +MFM$ make 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +This should build the MFM software as long as the repo does not contain any errors. ​ Depending on your machine, the build may take quite a while. 
 + 
 +After that succeeds, you can build the ULAM compiler:

 + 
 +Once the ULAM compiler is built, you need to use it to build "ulam exports"​ -- various libraries and demos that are part of the system:
