1 : jhr 3992 Standard ML of New Jersey Change Log
2 :     ====================================
3 :     The Fellowship of SML/NJ
4 : jhr 3998 {version}, {releasedate}:
5 : jhr 3992
6 : jhr 4002 This file documents changes to the Standard ML of New Jersey system since
7 :     March of 2000 (around Version 110.26). The change log primarily covers
8 :     the compiler, the compilation manager (*CM*), the *MLRISC* library, and
9 :     the runtime system. There are occasional entries about other components
10 :     (_e.g._, the *SML/NJ Library* and *ML-LPT*), but these components have
11 :     their own change logs that should be consulted.
12 :    
13 : jhr 3992 //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
14 :     This change log is in ASCII doc format. An HTML version of the
15 :     change log can be generated using the command
16 :    
17 : jhr 4049 make html
18 : jhr 3992
19 :     An entry should be made for _every_ commit to the repository.
20 :     The entries in this file will be used when creating the README
21 :     for new versions, so keep that in mind when writing the
22 :     description.
23 :    
24 :     The structure of the HISTORY is that there is a section for
25 :     each release, which starts with a section header of the form
26 :    
27 :     == Version xxx.yy; yyyy/mm/dd
28 :    
29 :     The content of a section is a list of entries. The form of an
30 :     entry should be:
31 :    
32 :     [yyy/mm/dd]::
33 :     +
34 : jhr 3995 Description ...
35 : jhr 3992 +
36 :     owner:[Your Name,URL]
37 :    
38 : jhr 3995 Note that we put "+" at the beginning of blank lines. Entries are items
39 :     in a labeled list and the "+" character keeps eveything in the same list
40 :     element.
41 :    
42 : jhr 3992 Here is a quick asciidoc cheat sheet:
43 :    
44 :     + new paragraph
45 :     *foo* bold "foo"
46 :     _foo_ italic "foo"
47 :     +foo+ teletype "foo"
48 :     http:/some.website.org/path[] URL
49 :     bugref:[123] displays as "#123" with
50 :     a link to the bug report.
51 : jhr 4134 reqref:[123] displays as "#123" with a
52 :     link to the feature request.
53 : jhr 3992 owner:[name,url] displays name with URL link.
54 :    
55 : jhr 3995 Sub lists should be bracketed with lines containing just "--".
56 : jhr 3992 Bulleted list items start with a single dash or one to five
57 :     asterisks followed by some white space then some text. Numberd
58 :     list items begin one to five period characters, followed by
59 :     some white space then the item text.
60 :    
61 : jhr 3995 Literal (verbatim) blocks are delimited by
62 :     .....................
63 :     stuff
64 :     .....................
65 :    
66 : jhr 3992 Superscripts and subscripts are denoted by putting ^ (or ~)
67 :     around the text to superscripted (superscripted). For example,
68 :     the number 256 can be written as 2^8^.
69 :    
70 :     SML source code displays can be included as source blocks:
71 :    
72 :     [source,sml]
73 :     ------------
74 :     structure Foo = struct val x = 1 end
75 :     ------------
76 :    
77 :     Source code will be stylized using the pygmentize (http://pygments.org)
78 :     tool.
79 :    
80 :     More information about asciidoc can be found at http://asciidoc.org.
81 :    
82 : jhr 4002 NOTE: the original HISTORY file was converted to ASCIIDOC using a Perl
83 :     script. This script gets the basic structure for entries correct,
84 :     but there still needs to be a fair bit of editing to add ASCIIDOC
85 :     markup, fix indentation issues, nested lists, etc. Working from most
86 :     recent to oldest, I've edited back to release 110.46 (2004/06/17).

90 : jhr 4126 == Recent updates
91 : jhr 3992
92 : jhr 4126 //====================================================================
93 :     // == Version 110.79; 2015/10/01
94 :    
95 : jhr 4060 //--------------------------------------------------------------------
96 : jhr 4141 [2015/09/28]::
97 :     +
98 : jhr 4147 Added the directory +base/old-basis+ to support backward-compatible
99 :     views of the *Basis Library*. You can use these by replacing the
100 :     line
101 :     +
102 :     --------
103 :     $/basis.cm
104 :     --------
105 :     +
106 :     with

108 :     --------
109 :     $/basis-2004.cm

111 :     +
112 :     in your CM files.
113 :    
114 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
115 :     [2015/09/28]::
116 :     +
117 : jhr 4141 New implementation of +Date+ structure in the Basis, which fixes bugs
118 :     bugref:[138] (Incorrect behavior for Date.fromTimeLocal) and
119 :     bugref:[139] (Date.date is broken). Note that some more thought should
120 :     be given to the correct semantics of +Date.date+ when dealing with
121 :     offsets. For example, should an offset of +23 hours produce the same
122 :     date as an offset of -1 hours? Currently our implementation produces
123 :     different results (by a day) for these two situations.
124 :     +

126 :    
127 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
128 : jhr 4126 [2015/09/25]::
129 :     +
130 : jhr 4134 Implemented the changes for
131 :     https://github.com/SMLFamily/BasisLibrary/wiki/2015-003-Additional-operations-on-sequences[
132 : jhr 4147 Basis Library Proposal 2015-003]. This proposal added operations to
133 : jhr 4134 the following signatures:
134 :     +
135 :     [source,sml]
136 :     ------------
137 :     signature ARRAY
138 :     signature LIST
139 :     signature LIST_PAIR
140 :     signature MONO_ARRAY
141 :     signature MONO_VECTOR
142 :     signature OPTION
143 :     signature STRING
144 :     signature TEXT
145 :     signature VECTOR
146 :     ------------
147 :     +
148 :     and the following structures:
149 :     +
150 :     [source,sml]
151 :     ------------
152 :     structure Array : ARRAY
153 :     structure CharArray : MONO_ARRAY
154 :     structure CharVector : MONO_VECTOR
155 :     structure List : LIST
156 :     structure ListPair : LIST_PAIR
157 :     structure Option : OPTION
158 :     structure Real64Array : MONO_ARRAY
159 :     structure Real64Vector : MONO_VECTOR
160 :     structure String : STRING
161 :     structure Text : TEXT
162 :     structure Vector : VECTOR
163 :     structure Word8Array : MONO_ARRAY
164 :     structure Word8Vector : MONO_VECTOR
165 :     ------------
166 :     +
167 :     While it is very unlikely that these changes will break existing code, there are
168 : jhr 4139 a a couple scenarios in which the code might break. Namely, when use of +open+
169 :     introduces conflicts and when user code implements one of the affected Basis Library
170 :     signatures. Both of these examples occurred in the *SML/NJ* source code; the former
171 :     in the *ml-yacc* sources and the latter in the *MLRISC* sources.

174 :    
175 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
176 :     [2015/09/25]::
177 :     +
178 :     Added the optional implementations of +PackReal64Big+ and +PackReal64Little+.
179 : jhr 4126 This addition addresses feature request reqref:[82]
180 :     (Implementations of +PACK_REAL+ missing). The implementation
181 :     uses the approach suggested by
182 :     https://github.com/msullivan/sml-util/blob/master/libs/pack-real.sml[Michael Sullivan].

187 : jhr 4122 [2015/09/24]::
188 :     +
189 :     Fixed bug bugref:[45] (Compiler bug in specialize phase). This bug
190 :     was in +compiler/FLINT/opt/fcontract.sml+ and was the result of a bad
191 :     interaction between eta contraction and inlining. As part of the fix,
192 :     I cleaned up the code in this part of FLINT a bit.

243 : jhr 4076 [2015/07/08]::
244 :     +
245 : jhr 4077 Added Linux 4.* kernels to the list of operating systems recognized
246 :     by the ++.arch-n-opsys++ script (fixes bug bugref:[134]).
247 : jhr 4076 +
248 :     owner:[John Reppy,http://cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr]

250 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
251 : jhr 4074 [2015/06/11]::
252 :     +
253 :     Added Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) to the list of operating systems
254 :     recognized by the ++.arch-n-opsys++ script.

257 :    
258 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
259 : jhr 4060 [2015/05/27]::
260 :     +
261 : jhr 4105 Added support for *Successor ML* lexical extensions. These can be enabled
262 : jhr 4107 using the command-line option ++-Cparser.succ-ml=true++ or by the assignment
263 : jhr 4062 +
264 :     [source,sml]
265 :     ------------
266 :     Control.succML := true;
267 :     ------------
268 :     +
269 :     at the REPL. The extensions are as follows:
270 : jhr 4105 +
271 : jhr 4060 --
272 : jhr 4105 - Underscore ("++_++") as a separator in numeric literals; __e.g.__, ++123_456++,
273 :     ++0wxff_ff_ff_f3++, ++123_456.1++, ...
274 : jhr 4060
275 :     - end-of-line comments, which are denoted using ++(*)++. End-of-line comments
276 :     properly nest into conventional block comments. For example, the following
277 :     block comment is well formed:
278 :     +
279 :     [source,sml]
280 :     ------------
281 :     (*
282 :     fun f x = x (*) my identity function *)
283 :     *)
284 :     ------------
285 :     +
286 : jhr 4062 - binary literals for both integers and words; __e.g.__, ++0b0101_1110++, or
287 : jhr 4060 ++0wb1101++.
288 :     --
289 : jhr 4105 +
290 :     This change is the beginning of a program to add *Successor ML* feature to *SML/NJ*;
291 :     See https://github.com/SMLFamily/Proposed-Definition-of-Successor-ML[] for more
292 :     details.

298 : jhr 4002
299 : jhr 3992 //--------------------------------------------------------------------
300 : dbm 4001 [2014/12/19]::
301 :     +
302 :     Major revision of the machinery for overloading resolution for both
303 :     operators (vars) and literals, now using a common mechanism. This fixes
304 :     bug bugref:[52] by improving the error message when an overloaded
305 : jhr 4049 operator is inconsistent with its context. Updated 23 files, including
306 : dbm 4001 major changes in +overload.sml+, +types.sml+, +unify.sml+, +elabcore.sml+,
307 :     +typesutil.sml+. The overload declaration is still used in
308 :     +pervasives.sml+, where the order of the specified instances of an
309 : jhr 4002 ordering determines the default interpretation (_i.e._, the first one).
310 : dbm 4001 +
311 :     The +SCHEME+ and +LITERAL+ forms of tyvars are replaced by a new
312 :     +OVLD+ form that tracks potential instantiations of the type of the
313 :     overloaded vars or literals.

317 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
318 : jhr 4002 [2014/12/18]::
319 :     +
320 :     Moved +base/NOTES/HISTORY+ file to +doc/src/changelog/HISTORY.txt+
321 :     and converted it to http://asciidoc.org[ASCIIDOC] format. Have also
322 :     moved the +README+ files from +base/READMES+ to +doc/src/release-notes+.
323 :     These changes are part of a general effort to rationalize and improve
324 :     the documentation of the *SML/NJ* system.

329 : jhr 3994 [2014/12/13]::
330 :     +
331 : jhr 4002 Preliminary cleanups before changes to overloading
332 :     +
333 : jhr 3994 Minor cleanup in +Elaborator/elaborate/elabcore+ (function +elabOVERLOADdec+)
334 :     and in +ElabData/types/typesutil.sml+ (function +matchScheme+). Preparing for
335 :     a new method of handling type checking of overloaded operators. [Note
336 :     that there is no reason for the options field of +OVLDvar+ to be a
337 :     reference -- it is never updated. Changing this requires corresponding
338 :     change in pickling.]
339 :     +
340 :     Also added an +etopdebugging+ flag (+ElabControl+) for debugging in
341 :     +elabtop.sml+. Modified ++elabcontrol.++{++sml++,++sig++} and
342 :     +elabtop.sml+. Also rearranged ast and absyn printing in +evalloop.sml+.

347 : jhr 3992 [2014/10/23]::
348 :     +
349 :     Improved error messages in *ml-ulex* for unclosed strings. Also made
350 :     documentation improvements.

353 :    
354 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
355 :     [2014/10/11]::
356 :     +
357 :     Added +-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64+ flag to +x86-linux+ makefile. This flag
358 :     is necessary to avoid spurious +EOVERFLOW+ errors on some versions of
359 :     Linux. The problem appears to be limited to large file systems that
360 :     have more than 2^32^ inodes.

365 :     [2014/09/13]::
366 :     +
367 :     Added +%value+ directive to *ml-antlr*; this addition improves the
368 :     error repair choices by allowing non-nullary tokens to be inserted
369 :     when making repairs.

378 : jhr 4002 [2014/08/21]::
379 :     +
380 :     Created new +doc+ tree in *SML/NJ* repository. Currently this
381 :     tree just holds the sources for UNIX-style manual pages for
382 :     the command-line tools (fixing bug bugref:[35]). The documentation
383 :     is written using the http://asciidoc.org[ASCIIDOC] format. Use

394 : jhr 3992 [2014/08/19]::
395 :     +
396 :     Compiling the runtime system on *cygwin* was failing because the file
397 :     +exceptions.h+ was missing. It appears to have been part of previous
398 :     versions, so a version has been incorporated verbatim in the
399 :     file +runtime/mach-base/cygwin-fault.c+ file (fixes bug bugref:[125]).

404 :     [2014/08/19]::
405 :     +
406 : jhr 4002 Added the +actionToString'+ and +repairToString'+ functions
407 :     to the +AntlrRepair+ structure. These functions allow one to
408 : jhr 3992 specialize the printing of tokens based on whether they are
409 :     being added or deleted.

920 :     Fixed a bug in the register-spill generator that is part of the MLRISC
921 :     register allocator. The problem was that the code in +RASpillWithRenaming+

1405 :     +
1406 :     CMB (and CM) now automatically defines the CM "preprocessor" symbol
1407 :     NO_PLUGINS during "makeml -rebuild" or when CM operates in "slave" mode.
1408 :     +
1409 :     (In addition, CMB_REBUILD_MODE is defined for +makeml -rebuild+,
1410 :     CM_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves while running CM.make
1411 :     or CM.rebuild, and CMB_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves
1412 :     while running +CMB.make+. The point is that the single symbol
1413 :     NO_PLUGINS is definde in all three cases.)
1414 :     +
1415 :     I changed the three locations within the sources that get compiled
1416 :     during +CMB.make+ where *ml-yacc* or *ml-lex* input is processed: When
1417 :     NO_PLUGINS defined, then the use of the mlyacc and mllex tools
1418 :     is bypassed.
1419 :     +
1420 :     When bootstrapping new versions of the compiler, there can be
1421 :     situations where the plugin tools for *ml-yacc* and *ml-lex* (or *ml-ulex*)
1422 :     are not available or otherwise not operational. In this case one can
1423 :     manually define the NO_PLUGINS symbol prior to running +CMB.make()+. To
1424 :     do so, the following command should be issued at the interactive
1425 :     prompt:
1426 :     +
1427 :     [source,sml]
1428 :     ------------
1429 :     #set (CMB.symval "NO_PLUGINS") (SOME 1);
1430 :     ------------
1431 :     +
1432 :     A +CMB.make+ with NO_PLUGINS defined relies on the existence of the
1433 :     files that normally would be generated by *ml-yacc* and *ml-lex*.
1434 :     (Copies of these files are in the repository.)

1455 :     +
1456 :     There are now a number of new installation targets that give some

1472 :     CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status. If

1492 :     | +EBNF+ | => | +AntlrEBNF+
1493 :     |===============================================
1494 :     +
1495 :     The *ml-antlr* specification format has changed: declarations such as
1496 :     +%tokens+ and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1497 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1498 :     extends the previous ones. This does not apply to +%start+ or +%name+,
1499 :     of course.
1500 :     +
1501 :     Importing a grammar via +%import+ now includes *all* declarations in from
1502 :     the imported grammar, except for +%name+, +%entry+, and +%start+. Tokens
1503 :     and nonterminals can be dropped using the new +%dropping+ clause of the
1504 :     +%import+ directive; the separate +%drop+ and +%extend+ have been removed.
1505 :     +
1506 :     We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the +%nonterms+
1507 :     directive as in *ml-yacc*.
1508 :     +
1509 :     The +refcell+ construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1510 :     cells, so the +:==+ and +!!+ notation has been deprecated.
1511 :     +
1512 :     The *ml-antlr* tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1513 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. Error repair for
1514 :     generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
1515 :     much faster and more accurate.
1516 :     +
1517 :     *ml-ulex* is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
1518 :     escape codes are now interpreted literally, so _e.g._, +\|+ denotes "+|+").
1519 :     Also, character classes may now include a "+-+" character at the beginning
1520 :     as is standard in most other regexp tools.
1521 :     +
1522 :     All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
1523 :     been updated and improved with this merge.

1543 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1544 :     extends the previous ones. Grammar extension constructs have also
1545 :     changed. We now allow type annotations on nonterminals. Finally,
1546 :     the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1547 :     cells, so the +:==+ and +!!+ notation has been deprecated. All of these
1548 :     changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for *ml-lpt*.
1549 :     +
1550 :     The *ml-antlr* tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1551 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. There has also been
1552 :     some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this

1803 :     [2006/12/08]::
1804 :     +
1805 :     Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
1806 :     causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
1807 :     command fails (_e.g._, due to the shell command's non-existence)
1808 :     as long as all target files exist.
1809 :     +
1810 :     This makes it possible to, _e.g._, build *ml-yacc* from sources even if
1811 :     svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
1812 :     +yacc.grm+ is younger than yacc.grm.sml or +yacc.grm.sig+. (*Ml-yacc*
1813 :     would be needed to re-process +yacc.grm+, but obviously it might not yet be
1814 :     available at that time.)

1894 :     (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
1895 :     +
1896 :     In addition, there is also a new
1897 :     +
1898 :     ...........
1899 :     ml-lpt
1900 :     ...........
1901 :     +
1902 :     directory containing two new program generator tools: *ml-ulex* and
1903 :     *ml-antlr* (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
1904 :     LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
1905 :     +
1906 :     The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
1907 :     via subversion. For this, it is useful to first check out
1908 :     +
1909 :     ...........
1910 :     svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
1911 :     ...........
1912 :     +
1913 :     and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH. This provides
1914 :     access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
1915 :     and refresh-all.sh.
1916 :     +
1917 :     To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
1918 :     +
1919 :     ...........
1920 :     checkout-all.sh [dir]
1921 :     ...........
1922 :     +
1923 :     where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
1924 :     +
1925 :     This creates the above directory layout. Each subdirectory of
1926 :     the root is under individual subversion control. The stat-all.sh
1927 :     and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
1928 :     each of these subtrees.

1931 :    
1932 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
1933 :     [2006/11/02]::
1934 :     +
1935 :     Reorganized directory layout.
1936 :     +
1937 :     This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
1938 :     +
1939 :     The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
1940 :     to a well-defined part of the overall system. Each part can be
1941 :     maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
1942 :     although currently we still serve everything out of the main
1943 :     smlnj-gforge tree.
1944 :     +
1945 :     Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
1946 :     layout. The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
1947 :     "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
1948 :     layout into SML source code. The main script used by the installer
1949 :     is in config/actions.
1950 :     +
1951 :     The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
1952 :     be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel. The "src" directory
1953 :     itself has moved down into a subtree called "base". (We may eventually
1954 :     get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
1955 :     +
1956 :     The layout is now as follows:
1957 :     +
1958 : jhr 4002 [frame="none",width="90%",cols="<2,<3",options="header"]

1984 :     In +$gf/admin+ there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
1985 : jhr 3992 and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
1986 :     +
1987 : jhr 4002 --
1988 :     +admin/checkout-all.sh+ [__dir__]::
1989 : jhr 3992 +
1990 : jhr 4002 optionally creates _dir_ and checks out all trees from their
1991 :     default repositories; if _dir_ is missing, checkout into the
1992 :     current working directory.
1993 :     +
1994 :     +admin/refresh-all.sh+ [__dir__]::
1995 :     looks at all trees (from the above list) in _dir_ (default: .)
1996 :     and runs "+svn update+" if the tree exists and is under
1997 :     subversion control;
1998 :     non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
1999 :     +
2000 :     +admin/stat-all.sh+ [__dir__]::
2001 :     like +refresh-all.sh+, but runs "+svn stat+" instead

2225 :     +
2226 : jhr 4002 Reversed change to +src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm+. This
2227 : jhr 3992 file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
2228 : jhr 4002 run of +CMB.make+. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
2229 : jhr 3992 it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
2230 : jhr 4002 +$/basis.cm+ to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
2231 : jhr 3992 the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
2232 : jhr 4002 might make sense to have +versiontool.cm+ refer to
2233 :     +$smlnj/basis/basis.cm+, _i.e._, the version of the Basis that the
2234 : jhr 3992 compiler itself uses.)
2235 :     +
2236 : jhr 4002 Also patched +src/system/testml+ to have it activate those extra anchor
2237 :     bindings in +config/extrapathconfig+.

2242 :     [2005/11/15]::
2243 :     +
2244 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
2245 :     the system:
2246 :     +
2247 : jhr 4002 ....................
2248 : jhr 3992 $/basis.cm
2249 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
2250 :     $/pp-lib.cm
2251 :     $/controls-lib.cm
2252 :     $/html-lib.cm
2253 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
2254 : jhr 4002 ....................
2255 : jhr 3992 +
2256 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
2257 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
2258 :     +
2259 : jhr 4002 ....................
2260 : jhr 3992 $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
2261 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
2262 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm

2264 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
2265 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
2266 : jhr 4002 ....................
2267 : jhr 3992 +
2268 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
2269 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
2270 :     their "default" names (_i.e._, the first set of names above). In other
2271 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
2272 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
2273 :     +
2274 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
2275 : jhr 4002 *MLRISC* libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
2276 : jhr 3992 cleanup on this code.
2277 :     +
2278 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
2279 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
2280 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

2449 :     Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system

2451 :     +
2452 : jhr 4002 [source,sml]
2453 :     ------------
2454 : jhr 3992 CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
2455 : jhr 4002 ------------
2456 : jhr 3992 +
2457 : jhr 4002 This is much like +SMLofNJ.exportML+, but starting from the resulting
2458 :     heap does not return to the caller of +CM.redump_heap+ but
2459 : jhr 3992 restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
2460 : jhr 4002 +CM.redump_heap+ does not return but ends the interactive session.
2461 :     Thus, +CM.redump_heap+ is a lot like +SMLofNJ.exportFn+.
2462 : jhr 3992 +
2463 : jhr 4002 Internally, +redump_heap+ winds the dynamic execution context back to
2464 : jhr 3992 the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
2465 :     the heap image generation code in the boot code.

2784 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being

2786 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
2787 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are

2805 :     but for the time being they don't even make sense because +LargeWord+ is
2806 : jhr 3992 32-bit wide.)
2807 :     +
2808 : jhr 3995 Also started to add similar support for +Int64+, but major pieces of that
2809 : jhr 3992 are still missing.

2814 :     [2004/11/11]::
2815 :     +
2816 : jhr 3995 Structure +Word64+ is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
2817 : jhr 3992 seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
2818 : jhr 3995 I didn't do the {++from++,++to++}++LargeWord++ parts because +LargeWord+
2819 :     is still +Word32+ at the moment.
2820 : jhr 3992 +
2821 : jhr 3995 Making +Word64+ official would mean that +LargeWord+ becomes +Word64+. But
2822 : jhr 3992 this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
2823 : jhr 3995 go through +LargeWord+, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
2824 : jhr 3992 worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
2825 : jhr 3995 simpler than) what I did with +IntInf+.

2899 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
2900 :     programs. Here is how it works:
2901 :     +
2902 : jhr 4002 --
2903 :     . The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
2904 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
2905 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a +(unit->'a)->'a+ function, and your
2906 :     main program could be modified from something like
2907 : jhr 3992 +
2908 : jhr 4002 [source,sml]
2909 :     ------------

2918 :     ------------
2919 : jhr 3992 +
2920 : jhr 4002 . To be able to access +BackTrace.monitor+, you have to add the
2921 :     library +$smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm+ to the +.cm+ file that contains your
2922 :     main function.
2923 : jhr 3992 +
2924 : jhr 4002 . Remove all compiled code (_i.e._, all the .cm/ subdirectories that

3048 :     treats subsequent occurrences of "group", "library", "source", "is",
3049 :     "*", and "-" as ordinary identifiers rather than keywords.
3050 :     +
3051 :     Most seriously, this fixes a problem with CM's "shell" tool. The tool
3052 :     is supposed to accept a tool argument called "source", but this did
3053 :     not work because of the clash with the keyword.

3094 :     * Moved the "version" magic into its own little library under

3097 :     +
3098 :     * At the same time, structure CompilerVersion is now known as

3100 :     +
3101 :     * Arranged for the version tool to NOT kick in when rebuilding the system
3102 :     (makeml -rebuild, fixpt). Otherwise one would never reach a fixpoint.
3103 :     Also, loading the versiontool does not work when rebuilding the system

3107 : jhr 3992
3108 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3109 :     [2004/09/29]::
3110 :     +
3111 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
3112 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
3113 :     generated automagically.
3114 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
3115 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
3116 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
3117 :     +
3118 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
3119 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
3120 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
3121 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
3122 :     +
3123 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
3124 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
3125 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
3126 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
3127 :     +
3128 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.

3140 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3141 :     [2004/09/27]::
3142 :     +
3143 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
3144 :     +
3145 : jhr 3995 [source,sml]
3146 :     ------------
3147 :     val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
3148 :     ------------
3149 : jhr 3992 +
3150 : jhr 3995 grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
3151 :     in stage 2.
3152 : jhr 3992 +
3153 : jhr 3995 [source,sml]
3154 :     ------------
3155 :     val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
3156 :     ------------
3157 : jhr 3992 +
3158 : jhr 3995 stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (_i.e._, delayed)
3159 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
3160 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
3161 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
3162 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
3163 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
3164 : jhr 3992 +
3165 : jhr 3995 Also changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "+sml+" and
3166 :     "+lazysml+":
3167 : jhr 4002 +
3168 : jhr 3995 --
3169 :     - use +Controls.save'restore+ as a more robust way of restoring the
3170 : jhr 3992 old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
3171 : jhr 3995 - use controls to handle the "+overload+" keyword in the init group
3172 : jhr 3992 (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)
3173 : jhr 3995 --
3174 : jhr 3992 +
3175 : jhr 3995 owner:[Matthias Blume,http://www.tti-c.org/blume/]
3176 : jhr 3992
3177 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3178 :     [2004/09/27]::
3179 :     +
3180 : jhr 3995 Added a new tool class called "+lazysml+" to CM's tool chest. The only
3181 :     difference to "+sml+" is that compilation is done with +Control.lazysml+
3182 :     set to true. A source of class "+lazysml+" is automatically recognized
3183 :     by a file name suffix of "+.lml+".
3184 : jhr 3992 +
3185 : jhr 3995 In addition to the above feature, the original class "+sml+" now also
3186 :     supports a tool argument "+lazy+" which has the same effect. As a
3187 : jhr 3992 result, the following three lines are equivalent:
3188 :     +
3189 : jhr 3995 ....................
3190 : jhr 3992 foo.sml : lazysml
3191 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
3192 :     foo.sml (lazy)
3193 : jhr 3995 ....................
3194 : jhr 3992 +
3195 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
3196 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
3197 :     after compilation, respectively.
3198 :     +
3199 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
3200 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
3201 : jhr 3995 "+-C...+" on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "+lazy+"
3202 :     apply as well. (In fact, "+lazy+" is implemented as a special case of
3203 : jhr 3992 the general mechanism.)
3204 :     +
3205 : jhr 3995 The +.cm+ file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "+with+".
3206 : jhr 3992 There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
3207 :     +
3208 : jhr 3995 ....................
3209 : jhr 3992 foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
3210 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
3211 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
3212 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
3213 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
3214 : jhr 3995 ....................
3215 : jhr 3992 +
3216 : jhr 3995 Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the +=v+ or +value:v+ part
3217 : jhr 3992 if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
3218 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
3219 :     +
3220 : jhr 3995 ....................
3221 : jhr 3992 foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
3222 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
3223 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
3224 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

3561 :     [2004/06/17]::
3562 :     +
3563 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
3564 :     recent Basis spec.
3565 :     +
3566 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
3567 :     +
3568 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
3569 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
3570 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
3571 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
3572 :     +
3573 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
3574 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
3575 :     stream in proc after all...
3576 :     +
3577 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
3578 :     +
3579 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
3580 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
3581 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
3582 :     file descriptors directly.
3583 :     +
3584 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
3585 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
3586 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

3599 :     +
3600 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
3601 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
3602 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
3603 :     "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
3604 :     library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
3605 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
3606 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
3607 :     library.
3608 :     +
3609 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
3610 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
3611 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
3612 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
3613 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
3614 :     cause real problems.

3636 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.

3657 :     for the voluminous patch!
3658 :     +
3659 :     (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
3660 :     +
3661 :     Here is David's e-mail:
3662 :     +
3663 :     Hi,
3664 :     +
3665 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
3666 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
3667 :     +
3668 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
3669 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
3670 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
3671 :     110.45 installation.
3672 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
3673 :     +
3674 :     The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
3675 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
3676 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
3677 :     are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
3678 :     +
3679 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
3680 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
3681 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
3682 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
3683 :     that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
3684 :     familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
3685 :     +
3686 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
3687 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
3688 :     of these functions is
3689 :     +
3690 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
3691 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
3692 :     +
3693 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
3694 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
3695 :     report an error upwards.
3696 :     +
3697 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
3698 :     the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
3699 :     Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
3700 :     when the process finishes.
3701 :     +
3702 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
3703 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
3704 :     +
3705 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
3706 :     +
3707 :     We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
3708 :     with it. I hope this contribution will help you.
3709 :     +
3710 :     Keep up the good work!

3852 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3853 :     [2003/11/04]::
3854 :     +
3855 :     Eliminated the "dont_move_libraries" directive in config/targets.
3856 :     (The mechanism was broken and could not be fixed easily. Moreover,
3857 :     there does not seem to be any reason not to move all libraries into
3858 :     lib during installation. I originally implemented this directive as a
3859 :     backward-compatibility feature when I first introduced the new CM.
3860 :     Now that things have been stable for a long time and going back to the
3861 :     old CM is not an option, there is no reason to keep it around.)

3882 :     +
3883 :     1. Added openVector, nullRd, and nullWr to PRIM_IO.
3884 :     2. Improved .bat files (for *Win32* port) to make things work under Win95.

3899 :    
3900 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3901 :     [2003/09/26]::
3902 :     +
3903 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
3904 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
3905 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
3906 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
3907 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
3908 :     +
3909 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
3910 :     implementation (_e.g._, Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
3911 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
3912 :     +
3913 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
3914 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
3915 :     be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
3916 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
3917 :     "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
3918 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
3919 :     names in the current environment.)

3923 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3924 :     [2003/09/24]::
3925 :     +
3926 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
3927 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
3928 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
3929 :     +
3930 :     ....................
3931 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
3932 :     ....................
3933 :     +
3934 :     and everything happens automagically.
3935 :     +
3936 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable +SMLNJ_HOME+.
3937 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables +ROOT+, +CONFIGDIR+,
3938 :     and +BINDIR+.
3939 :     +
3940 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
3941 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
3942 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.
3943 :     +
3944 : jhr 3995 owner:[Matthias Blume,http://www.tti-c.org/blume/]
3945 : jhr 3992
3946 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3947 :     [2003/09/24]::
3948 :     +
3949 :     Added a signature SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET to basis.cm. This is like SOCKET
3950 :     but excludes all non-blocking operations. Defined SOCKET (in Basis)
3951 :     and CML_SOCKET in terms of SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET. Removed superfluous
3952 :     implementations of non-blocking operations from CML's Socket
3953 :     structure.
3954 :     +
3955 : jhr 3995 owner:[Matthias Blume,http://www.tti-c.org/blume/]
3956 : jhr 3992
3957 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3958 :     [2003/09/24]::
3959 :     +
3960 :     1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
3961 :     This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
3962 :     that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
3963 :     blocking or non-blocking. This state is maintained lazily (_i.e._, a system
3964 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
3965 :     +
3966 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
3967 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
3968 :     between Unix and Win32.
3969 :     +
3970 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
3971 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
3972 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
3973 :     +
3974 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
3975 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
3976 :     of CML.
3977 :     +
3978 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

3994 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
3995 :     [2003/09/19]::
3996 :     +
3997 :     1. new-install.sh -> install.sh
3998 :     2. changed default CM "metadata" directory name to ".cm" (instead of "CM")
3999 :     3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen
4000 :     at install time (by setting the CM_DIR_ARC environment variable
4001 :     during installation); once installation is complete, the name is
4002 :     fixed

4018 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
4019 :     [2003/09/18]::
4020 :     +
4021 :     1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as
4022 :     this seems to be controversial at the moment) and used those in
4023 :     Posix.ProcEnv.times.
4024 :     +
4025 :     2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
4026 :     +
4027 :     3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.
4028 :     For example, fromLargeInt never needs to look at more than 3 "big
4029 :     digits" to get its 53 bits of precision.

4033 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
4034 :     [2003/09/17]::
4035 :     +
4036 :     Added an entry to the primitive environment
4037 :     (compiler/Semant/statenv/prim.sml) for int32->real64 conversion and
4038 :     added code to compiler/CodeGen/main/mlriscGen.sml to implement it.
4039 :     +
4040 :     Removed some of the "magic" constants in real64.sml and replaced them
4041 :     with code that generates these values from their corresponding
4042 :     integer counterparts.
4043 :     +
4044 :     Made all(?) the slice-related changes to the Basis and made everything
4045 :     compile again...

4058 :     +
4059 :     Minor bugfix in config/libinstall (set anchor with path to
4060 :     standalone tool after installing it, otherwise libraries that
4061 :     need *ml-lex* or *ml-yacc* won't compile the first time the installer

4071 :     - changed inputLine functions to return an option

4080 :    
4081 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
4082 :     [2003/09/09]::
4083 :     +
4084 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
4085 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
4086 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
4087 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
4088 :     independent.)
4089 :     +
4090 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
4091 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
4092 :     +
4093 :     Other changes:
4094 :     +
4095 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
4096 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
4097 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
4098 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
4099 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
4100 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
4101 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
4102 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
4103 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

4107 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
4108 :     [2003/09/08]::
4109 :     +
4110 :     Made Win32 version of OS.FileSys.fullPath return current directory
4111 :     when given an empty string. This is what the spec says, and incidentally,
4112 :     CM depends on it. (CM otherwise goes into an infinite loop in certain
4113 :     cases when presented with the name of a non-existing .cm file.)

4116 : jhr 3992
4117 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
4118 :     [2003/09/04]::
4119 :     +
4120 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
4121 :     (draft) Basis spec.
4122 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
4123 :     Basis spec.
4124 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
4125 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
4126 :     match the new signatures.)
4127 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
4128 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
4129 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
4130 :     appropriate.
4131 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
4132 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
4133 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, *ml-lex* used function
4134 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
4135 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
4136 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
4137 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
4138 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
4139 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
4140 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
4141 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
4142 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
4143 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
4144 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
4145 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
4146 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
4147 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
4148 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
4149 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
4150 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
4151 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
4152 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
4153 :     ArraySlice).

4157 :     //--------------------------------------------------------------------
4158 :     [2003/08/28]::
4159 :     +
4160 :     This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
4161 :     (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
4162 : jhr 4101 and an implementation of +IntInf+ in the Basis.
4163 :    
4164 : jhr 3992 There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
4165 :     the system:
4166 :     +
4167 :     Basis:
4168 :     - Implemented IntInf.
4169 :     - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
4170 :     - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
4171 :     - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
4172 :     +
4173 :     compiler:
4174 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
4175 : jhr 4101 --
4176 : jhr 3992 - literals
4177 :     - pattern matching
4178 : jhr 4101 - conversion shortcuts (+Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge+ etc.)
4179 : jhr 3992 - overloading on literals and operations
4180 : jhr 4101 --
4181 : jhr 3992 This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
4182 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
4183 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
4184 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
4185 :     +
4186 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
4187 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
4188 :     is the right thing to do there).
4189 :     +
4190 : jhr 4101 * Improved the organization of structure +InlineT+.
4191 : jhr 3992 +
4192 :     * A word about conversion primops:
4193 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
4194 :     CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
4195 :     Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
4196 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
4197 :     to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
4198 :     for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
4199 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
4200 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
4201 :     eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
4202 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
4203 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
4204 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
4205 :     +
4206 :     interactive system:
4207 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
4208 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
4209 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
4210 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
4211 :     use of library functionality.
4212 :     +
4213 :     CM:
4214 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
4215 :     are no longer silent.
4216 :     +
4217 :     CKIT:
4218 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
4219 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
4220 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
4221 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
4222 :     FixedInt.
4223 :     +
4224 :     Throughout the code:
4225 :     Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
4226 :     (_e.g._, comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

4234 :     Merging changes from the mcz-branch development branch into trunk.
4235 :     These changes involve replacement of the emulated old prettyprinter
4236 :     interface with direct use of the SML/NJ Lib PP library, and fixing
4237 :     of a couple of bugs (895, 1186) relating to error messages. A new

4250 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a

4252 :     unnoticed until now:
4253 :     +
4254 : jhr 4101 --
4255 :     * uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
4256 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
4257 :    
4258 :     * There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
4259 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
4260 :    
4261 :     * The internals of *ml-build* have been modified slightly. The main
4262 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
4263 :     using +OS.Process.system+, the ML process delegates this task back
4264 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
4265 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
4266 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
4267 :    
4268 :     * In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
4269 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
4270 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
4271 :    
4272 :     * Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
4273 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
4274 : jhr 3992 +
4275 :     standard!
4276 :     +
4277 : jhr 4101 into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
4278 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
4279 : jhr 3992 +
4280 :     native!
4281 :     +
4282 : jhr 4101 switches back to native style. This was needed so that
4283 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
4284 :    
4285 :     * Runtime system:
4286 : jhr 3992 +
4287 : jhr 4101 - ++win32-filesys.c++: +get_file_time+ and +set_file_time+ now
4288 :     access modification time, not creation time.
4289 :    
4290 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
4291 :    
4292 :     - Bug fixes in +X86.prim.masm+.
4293 :    
4294 :     - +src/system/makeml+ made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
4295 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
4296 :    
4297 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
4298 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
4299 :    
4300 :     * .bat scripts:
4301 : jhr 3992 +
4302 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that +SMLNJ_HOME+ is defined.
4303 :     +
4304 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
4305 :     applications (sml, *ml-yacc*, *ml-lex*).
4306 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to *ml-build*.
4307 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
4308 :     that +SMLNJ_HOME+ is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
4309 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
4310 :     Moreover, sources for *ml-lex* and *ml-yacc* need to exist under src,
4311 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
4312 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
4313 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
4314 :     It only installs the base system, *ml-lex*, and *ml-yacc*. No other
4315 :     libraries are being installed (_i.e._, you get only those that
4316 :     are part of the compiler.)
4317 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
4318 : jhr 4101
4319 :     * Unrelated bug fixes:
4320 :    
4321 : jhr 3992 - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
4322 :     types.
4323 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
4324 :     otherwise.)
