Running Rascal with Maven


After the minimal installation procedure and creating a Rascal Maven project, running Rascal with maven is a matter of starting the Rascal Shell like so:

test-project $ mvn rascal:console

Hello REPL!

Here we have assumed a Un*x-like shell environment, but for Windows Powershell or Command shell usages the interaction is similar.
