18    Tag: blume-20041124-position
19    Description:
20    
21    The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
22    equal to Int64.  The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
23    for the time being.
24    
25    To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
26    
27    1. Start sml
28    2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
29    3. Type
30          #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
31    4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
32    
33    This is barely tested.  The only test so far was a little SML program
34    counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
35    reading it character-by-character.  That test was successful.
36    
37    In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
38    added to the runtime system.

78    Tag: blume-20041113-versiontool
79    Description:
80    
81    - Stripped down the versiontool: It now only handles the version number.
82      The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
83    
84    - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
85      translated.  In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
86      This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
87      more efficient code.  Important examples for where this matters are
88      the new int64 and word64 types.

102    Tag: blume-20041111-more64
103    Description:
104    
105    All the pieces of Word64 are now there, with the exception of the
106    conversions from and to LargeWord. (Eventually these need to be identities,
107    but for the time being they don't even make sense because LargeWord is
108    32-bit wide.)
109    
110    Also started to add similar support for Int64, but major pieces of that
111    are still missing.
112

116    Tag: blume-20041111-word64
117    Description:
118    
119    Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
120    seem to work.  There are a few odd pieces missing.  In particular,
121    I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
122    at the moment.
123    
124    Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64.  But
125    this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
126    go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
127    worse.  Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
128    simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

134    Description:
135    
136    More 64-bit hacking (but still not even half-way there yet).
137    Also, some assorted improvements to the handling of 8-bit words.

154    New working version (110.50).  NEW BOOTFILES!
155    
156                 =====================
157    
158    Also:
159    
160      - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just
161        containing the URL string into a file containing
162        shell script code.  The code has access to the $VERSION variable.
163      - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
164      - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
165        normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
166    
167      (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
168       config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

183    Description:
184    
185    This is the HISTORY entry for two earlier commits, both concerning
186    the x86 c-calls code in MLRISC:
187    
188      - added a missing LOAD in the code that deals with struct arguments
189      - made sure the caller does not add the wrong number of bytes to the
190        stack pointer after a call of a function returning a struct
191        (the callee already pops the implicit argument which points to
192         the space reserved for the result)

208    Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
209    Description:
210    
211    Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
212    programs.  Here is how it works:
213    
214       1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
215          information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
216          BackTrace.monitor.  This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
217          main program could be modified from something like
218    
219             fun main (pgm, args) = ...
220    
221         to
222    
223            fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
224    
225       2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
226          library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
227          main function.
228    
229       3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
230          CM might have created in the past for your project).
231    
232       4. Build the system using this command line:
233    
234             ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
235                      myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
236    
237          instead of the usual
238    
239             ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
240    
241    I changed a library name:
242    
243       $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
244    
245    New libraries:
246    
247       $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
248          -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
249       $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
250          -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

265    Tag: blume-20041015-coverage
266    Description:
267    
268    * Test coverage tool added!
269    * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
270    
271        - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
272          library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
273        - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
274        - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
275        - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
276        - Coverage module is another such plugin
277    
278    To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
279    question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on.  This
280    can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
281    (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
282    
283    Plugins are selected at link time.  (Pre-compiled instrumented code
284    can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.)  When an
285    instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
286    enabled will come into effect for that module.
287    
288    To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
289    and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
290    To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
291    Coverage.install().
292    
293    Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
294    when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
295    
296    Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
297    explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

303    Description:

305    Snapshot of a significant overhaul of how the trace/debug/profile support
306    is hooked into the system (specifically: Core and SMLofNJ.Internals).

312    Description:
313    
314    Some rationalization of names:
315    
316       structure BTrace -> structure TDPInstrument
317       etc.
318    
319    This is is preparation of using the original back-trace
320    instrumentation for other purposes.  "TDP" stands for
321    Trace/Debug/Profile.
322    
323    The control flag controlling whether instrumentation is on or off is now
324    registered under a different name, so instead of running sml as
325    
326     sml -Cinstrument.btrace-mode=true
327    
328    one has to say
329    
330     sml -Ctdp.instrument=true

336    Description:
337    
338    Made some minor modifications to elabcore.sml to have source regions

340    regions being reported in error- and debug messages.

345    Tag: blume-20041008-cmkw
346    Description:
347    
348    Fixed handling of keywords in .cm files: After seeing "is" the lexer
349    treats subsequent occurrences of "group", "library", "source", "is",
350    "*", and "-" as ordinary identifiers rather than keywords.
351    
352    Most seriously, this fixes a problem with CM's "shell" tool.  The tool
353    is supposed to accept a tool argument called "source", but this did
354    not work because of the clash with the keyword.

362    Assorted cleanup work:
363    
364      - got rid of intstrmap in favor of using the library's

366      - threw out most of the pathnames stuff, as it was not used anyway
367      - simplified tokentable implementation
368      - fixed some minor spelling errors

387    
388    Added hack to make slave mode work in the presence of the version
389    tool.  (Still, since the master does two passes over the code for
390    CMB.make, the release number gets bumped twice when slaves are
391    attached.  I don't know if this is worth fixing...)

397    Description:
398    
399    * Moved the "version" magic into its own little library under
400      src/system/smlnj/internal.  This avoids expensive reconstruction of
401      a stable src/compiler/core.cm.
402    
403    * At the same time, structure CompilerVersion is now known as
404      structure SMLNJVersion.
405    
406    * Arranged for the version tool to NOT kick in when rebuilding the system
407      (makeml -rebuild, fixpt).  Otherwise one would never reach a fixpoint.
408      Also, loading the versiontool does not work when rebuilding the system
409      because CM is not properly initialized at that time.

414    Tag: blume-20040929-autoversion
415    Description:
416    
417    Implemented some CM magic to have
418        file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
419    generated automagically.
420    The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
421    The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
422    The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
423    
424    If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
425    time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
426    then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
427    time CMB.make is invoked.
428    
429    The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
430    two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
431    binfiles incompatible.  Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
432    during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
433    
434    In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.
435    (This is the date that is printed in the banner.)

448    Tag: blume-20040927-controls
449    Description:
450    
451    Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
452    
453    1.   val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
454    
455       grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
456       in stage 2.
457    
458    2.   val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
459    
460       stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
461       but does all error checking in stage 1.
462       (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
463        something that might fail.  In some cases, notably in CM, one
464        already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
465        assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
466    
467    Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
468    "lazysml":
469       - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
470         old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
471       - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
472         (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

477    Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
478    Description:
479    
480    Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest.  The only
481    difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
482    set to true.  A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
483    by a file name suffix of ".lml".
484    
485    In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
486    supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect.  As a
487    result, the following three lines are equivalent:
488    
489        foo.sml : lazysml
490        foo.sml : sml (lazy)
491        foo.sml (lazy)
492    
493    The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
494    compilation.  The original setting is restored right after parsing and
495    after compilation, respectively.
496    
497    In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
498    ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
499    "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis.  The same rules that apply for "lazy"
500    apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
501    the general mechanism.)
502    
503    The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
504    There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
505    
506        foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
507        foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
508        foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
509        foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
510        foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
511    
512        etc.
513    
514    Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
515    if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
516    taken to be true).  Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
517    
518        foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
519        foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
520        foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
521        foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

873    Description:
874    
875    Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
876    recent Basis spec.
877    
878    In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
879    
880       The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
881       fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
882       return the same stream every time.  This design is supposed to
883       prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
884    
885       The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
886       streams.  This cannot be done without having a handle on the
887       stream in proc after all...
888    
889    I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
890    
891      The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
892      Reap closes those.  If either or both of the two streams hadn't
893      been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
894      file descriptors directly.
895    
896    PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore.  If
897    a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
898    will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

916    library. Each group must have a unique owner.  (There is a virtual
917    "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
918    library.)  Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
919    and CM would check that such a declaration is correct.  The new scheme
920    is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
921    library.
922    
923    The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
924    to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information.  The downside is
925    that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
926    CM.make.  Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
927    libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
928    cause real problems.

936    Made the win32 version work again.  (Strangely, a misplaced comma had

940    Also, included a minor addition to ml-build.bat analogous to what was
941    done in blume-20040519-ml-build.

947    Description:
948    
949    Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
950    The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
951    CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it.  It now
952    gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
953    
954    This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the
955    metadata directory (default: .cm) is actually configurable at
956    installation time.

971    Description:
972    
973    Added previously missing support for many socket-related functions
974    under win32.  Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
975    for the voluminous patch!
976    
977    (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
978    
979    Here is David's e-mail:
980    
981    Hi,
982    
983    Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
984    that will enable socket support under Windows.
985    
986    To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
987    1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
988    2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
989       110.45 installation.
990    3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
991    
992    The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
993    I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
994    (which worked fine).  Especially the functions that use ioctl
995    are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
996    
997    I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
998    but need socket support in order to use it.  This is the first time I
999    even had a look at the sml/nj source,  so please review my changes
1000    before making this part of the distribution!  Here are a few issues
1001    that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
1002    familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
1003    
1004    - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
1005      exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
1006      of these functions is
1007    
1008    - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
1009      only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
1010    
1011    - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
1012      does not process its return value since I don't know how to
1013      report an error upwards.
1014    
1015    - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
1016      the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
1017      Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
1018      when the process finishes.
1019    
1020    - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
1021      no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
1022    
1023    - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
1024    
1025    We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
1026    with it.  I hope this contribution will help you.
1027    
1028    Keep up the good work!
1029

1068    in the "targets" file, then the installer will pull in sources for
1069    everything.  (Notice that this refers to source code only.  Compiled
1070    code is still only installed for modules that were requested explicitly
1071    or which are required for other modules that were requested explicitly.)

1105    Description:
1106    
1107    Fixed the runtime so that ml-nlffi-lib runs on the cygwin version
1108    of SML/NJ.  The problem is that
1109    
1110       lib = dlopen(NULL, ...)
1111       f   = dlsym(lib, "malloc");
1112    
1113    does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
1114    such as 'malloc' during linking.  We fixed this by explicitly
1115    exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
1116    
1117        -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
1118    
1119    where cygwin.def is a file containing all the symbols that
1120    we wish to export.
1121    
1122    I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
1123    do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
1124    we build the native win32 version with the system
1125    calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

1251    Description:
1252    
1253    I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
1254    invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
1255    is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
1256    appears in CM's autoload registry.  As a result, we see far fewer of
1257    those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
1258    
1259    In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
1260    implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
1261    instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
1262    
1263    The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
1264    (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
1265    be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
1266    "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
1267    "A.t" in this case.  In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
1268    a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
1269    names in the current environment.)

1275    Description:
1276    
1277    Another installer tweak:  All the ML code for the installer is now
1278    compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
1279    $smlnj/installer.cm.  The installation then simply invokes
1280    
1281       sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
1282    
1283    and everything happens automagically.
1284    
1285    Win32:  ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
1286    Unix:   ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
1287            and BINDIR.
1288    
1289    The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
1290    is in sync with the APIs of the main system.  Also, the installer is
1291    somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

1309    Description:
1310    
1311    1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
1312       This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
1313       that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
1314       blocking or non-blocking.  This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
1315       call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
1316    
1317    2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
1318       making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
1319       between Unix and Win32.
1320    
1321    3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
1322       (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
1323       since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
1324    
1325    4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
1326       provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
1327       of CML.
1328    
1329    5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53.  Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

1348    1. new-install.sh -> install.sh
1349    2. changed default CM "metadata" directory name to ".cm" (instead of "CM")
1350    3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen
1351       at install time (by setting the CM_DIR_ARC environment variable
1352       during installation); once installation is complete, the name is

1372    1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as
1373       this seems to be controversial at the moment) and used those in
1374       Posix.ProcEnv.times.
1375    
1376    2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
1377    
1378    3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.
1379       For example, fromLargeInt never needs to look at more than 3 "big
1380       digits" to get its 53 bits of precision.

1391    
1392    Removed some of the "magic" constants in real64.sml and replaced them
1393    with code that generates these values from their corresponding
1394    integer counterparts.
1395    
1396    Made all(?) the slice-related changes to the Basis and made everything

1442    Description:
1443    
1444    Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
1445    Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it.  Also modified
1446    config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
1447    of it on Unix systems.  (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
1448    independent.)
1449    
1450    The installer can now install everything under Win32
1451    as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
1452    
1453    Other changes:
1454    
1455      - made CML compile again under Win32
1456      - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
1457        and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
1458      - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
1459        same as type int;  under Win32 it isn't
1460      - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
1461      - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
1462        (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
1463        OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

1480    Description:
1481    
1482      1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
1483         (draft) Basis spec.
1484      2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
1485         Basis spec.
1486      3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
1487         under 1. and 2.  (In some cases code had to be added to have it
1488         match the new signatures.)
1489      4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
1490         of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
1491         check the compiler version number and use old versions when
1492         appropriate.
1493      5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
1494         dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
1495      6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
1496         CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
1497         This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
1498         CharVectorSlice.  (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
1499      7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
1500         new MONO_ARRAY signature.  (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
1501      8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
1502         (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
1503      9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
1504     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
1505         Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
1506         (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
1507     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
1508     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
1509         mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
1510     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
1511         value counting microseconds.  This considerably simplified the
1512         implementation of structure Time.  We now support negative time
1513         values; scan and fromString handle signs.
1514     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
1515         ArraySlice).

1521    Description:
1522    
1523    This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
1524    (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
1525    and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
1526    
1527    There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
1528    the system:
1529    
1530    Basis:
1531            - Implemented IntInf.
1532            - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
1533            - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
1534            - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
1535    
1536    compiler:
1537            * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
1538              - literals
1539              - pattern matching
1540              - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
1541              - overloading on literals and operations
1542    
1543            This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
1544            primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
1545            operations in Core.  (The intinf type is completely abstract
1546            to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
1547    
1548            * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal.  However, the compiler
1549            does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
1550            is the right thing to do there).
1551    
1552            * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
1553    
1554            * A word about conversion primops:
1555            If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
1556            CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
1557            Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
1558            translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
1559            to add new Core calls.  For this reason, conversion primops
1560            for intinf carry two arguments:  1. the numeric argument that
1561            they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
1562            can help with this conversion if necessary.  If CPS contract
1563            eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
1564            dead and goes away.  Intinf conversion primops that do not get
1565            eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
1566            core functions by a separate, new phase.
1567    
1568    interactive system:
1569            - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
1570            being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
1571            - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
1572            duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
1573            use of library functionality.
1574    
1575    CM:
1576            Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
1577            are no longer silent.
1578    
1579    CKIT:
1580            Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt.  I always decided
1581            in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
1582            CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
1583            intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
1584            FixedInt.
1585    
1586    Throughout the code:
1587            Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
1588            (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

1608    Description:
1609    
1610    Version number bumped to 110.42.9.  NEW BOOTFILES!!!
1611    
1612        http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
1613    
1614    This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32.  There are a
1615    number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
1616    unnoticed until now:
1617    
1618      - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
1619        trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
1620    
1621      - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
1622        corresponding Unix shell-scripts.  (See below.)
1623    
1624      - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly.  The main
1625        difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
1626        using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
1627        to the script.  Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
1628        as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
1629        where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
1630    
1631      - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
1632        is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation.  The new pickle format
1633        is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
1634    
1635      - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
1636        between native and standard syntax.  Placing a line of the form
1637    
1638            standard!
1639    
1640        into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
1641        CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
1642    
1643            native!
1644    
1645        switches back to native style.  This was needed so that
1646        path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
1647    
1648      - Runtime system:
1649    
1650          - win32-filesys.c:  get_file_time and set_file_time now
1651            access modification time, not creation time.
1652    
1653          - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
1654    
1655          - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
1656    
1657       - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
1658            and other Unix-environments for windows.)
1659    
1660       - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
1661         which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
1662    
1663    .bat scripts:
1664    
1665       Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
1666    
1667       - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat:  Driver scripts for standalone
1668         applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
1669       - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
1670       - config\install.bat:  Analogous to config/install.sh.  This requires
1671         that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
1672         (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
1673         Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
1674         and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
1675         sml.boot.x86-win32.
1676         The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
1677         It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc.  No other
1678         libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
1679         are part of the compiler.)
1680       - link-sml.bat:  analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
1681    
1682    Unrelated bug fixes:
1683    
1684      - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
1685        types.
1686      - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml.  (Would not compile
1687        otherwise.)

1717      2. Cleaned up the *entire* source tree so that CMB.make goes through
1718         without a single non-exhaustive match- or bind warning.

1725    
1726    1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
1727    
1728       This mainly affects the quality of error messages.  However, some
1729       of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
1730       the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
1731       the "macro-expansion" that was going on before.  Plus, the mach-
1732       compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
1733       if-expression.)
1734    
1735    2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
1736       interactive loop.

1756       This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.
1757       Other x86 versions can use the existing binfiles.

1773    Description:
1774    
1775    Fixed a bug in Int.rem(x,y) where y is a power of 2 on x86.
1776    The arguments to the SUBL instruction were swapped.

1782    Description:
1783    
1784    Fixed a serious bug in the rewrite code for FP spilling/reloading that
1785    sent the RA into an infinite loop when floating point registers get
1786    spilled.  (Because of this bug, e.g., nucleic stopped compiling between
1787    110.37 and 110.38.)
1788    There was another set of potential problems related to the handling of
1789    MLRISC annotations (but those did not yet cause real problems, apparently).

1795    Description:
1796    
1797    Added a call of SrcPath.sync at the beginning of Parse.parse (in CM).
1798    This fixes the problem of CM getting confused by files that suddenly
1799    change their identity (e.g., by getting unlinked and recreated by some
1800    text editor such as vi).  There might be a better/cheaper/cleaner way
1801    of doing this, but for now this will have to do.

1815    Description:
1816    
1817    In good old tradition, there has been a slight hiccup so that we have
1818    to patch 110.42 after the fact.   The old release tag has been replaced
1819    (see below).
1820    
1821    The change solves a problem with two competing approaches the
1822    configuration problem regarding MacOS 10.1 vs. MacOS 10.2 which got in
1823    each other's way.
1824    
1825    This change only affects the runtime system code and the installer script.
1826    (No new bootfiles.)

1840    Description:
1841    
1842    The mltree operator DIVS must be implemented with an overflow check on
1843    the PPC because the hardware indicates divide-by-zero using "overflow" as
1844    well.

1850    Description:
1851    
1852    Sml now senses the SMLNJ_HOME environment variable.  If this is set,
1853    then the bin dir is assumed to be in $SMLNJ_HOME/bin and (unless
1854    CM_PATHCONFIG is also set), the path configuration file is assumed
1855    to be in $SMLNJ_HOME/lib/pathconfig.  This way one can easily move
1856    the entire tree to some other place and everything will "just work".
1857    
1858    (Companion commands such as ml-build and ml-makedepend also sense this
1859    variable.)

1891    
1892    Fixed a bug in translation of INLMAX (and INLMIN) for the floating-point
1893    case.  (The sense of the isNaN test was reversed -- which made min and
1894    max always return their first argument.)

1908    Description:
1909    
1910    I back-ported my implementation of IEEEReal.fromString from the
1911    idlbasis-devel branch so that we can test it.
1912    
1913    Another small change is that ppDec tries to give more information
1914    than just "<sig>" in the case of functors.  However, this code is
1915    broken in some mysterious way if the functor's body's signature
1916    has not been declared by ascription but gets inferred from the
1917    implementation.  This needs fixing...
