Deren, In addition to what Matthew has said, I guess you need to have a 'main' module in your language, and provide it to raco exe, too. It can be a dummy module or not. The requirement of such a module is unclear to me, but it exists.
Here is my working script to pack a standalone interpreter of a language 'slon' on Windows: raco exe -o slon-racket ++lib slon/slon-language ++lib slon/lang/reader ++lib slon/main slon-interpreter.rkt raco distribute slon-racket slon-racket.exe Regards, Dmitry On February 1, 2018 8:53:50 PM EET, Deren Dohoda <deren.doh...@gmail.com> wrote: >Hi everyone, > >I'm having a hard time understanding the docs for raco exe and raco >distribute. > >tl;dr main.rkt has to (dynamic-require user-selected.rkt) and >user-selected.rkt is written in a different #lang and requires a file >from >this program.
