Installer (programming language)

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Example dialog

Installer is a scripting language developed by Sylvan Technical Arts and published by Commodore International for AmigaOS, first released for version 2.1 in 1992.[1] Its grammar is based on the LISP programming language. A compatible re-implementation named InstallerLG is actively developed as of October 2018.[2]

Example from the developer guide:

(makedir "T:fred" 	(prompt "I will now create the directory \"T:Fred\"") 	(help @makedir-help) 	(infos) 	(confirm) ) 

The InstallerGen tool can be used as an alternative for writing scripts by hand.[3]
