Using DrRacket version

It installs 1:13 package and responds to

$ ./whalesong
Usage: whalesong <subcommand> [option ...] <arg ...>
  where any unambiguous prefix can be used for a subcommand

The Whalesong command-line tool for compiling Racket to JavaScript

For help on a particular subcommand, use 'whalesong <subcommand> --help'
  whalesong version           Print the current version
  whalesong build             build a standalone html and javascript package
  whalesong get-runtime       print the runtime library to standard output
  whalesong get-javascript    Gets just the JavaScript code and prints
it to standard output

Have not tried out other examples yet.
