MLton is a whole-program optimizing Standard ML (SML) compiler, currently limited to X86 machines with Linux, FreeBSD, or Cygwin/Windows.

MLton produces extremely small and fast executables (compared to SML/NJ, Poly/ML, Moscow ML, and MLKit), however it does not provide an interactive terminal (REPL) due to its whole-program compilation strategy.

The MLton team is anticipating a new release in February 2003, and is soliciting feedback on what the development community feels are important features and tools.
