27    Tag: leunga-20040319-cygwin-nlffi
28    Description:
29    
30    Fixed the runtime so that ml-nlffi-lib runs on the cygwin version
31    of SML/NJ.  The problem is that
32    
33       lib = dlopen(NULL, ...)
34       f   = dlsym(lib, "malloc");
35    
36    does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
37    such as 'malloc' during linking.  We fixed this by explicitly
38    exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
39    
40        -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
41    
42    where cygwin.def is a file containing all the symbols that
43    we wish to export.
44    
45    I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
46    do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
47    we build the native win32 version with the system
48    calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

54    Description:
55    
56    Fixed problem with IntInf.fmt (sign would show up on the right instead
57    of on the left for BIN, OCT, and HEX).

63    Description:
64    
65    Fixed problem with installer script (unix only) where bin/ml-yacc and
66    friends pointed (via symlinks) to absolute locations instead of just
67    .run-sml.  This was reported by Vesa A Norrman.

115    Tag: blume-20031104-move-libraries
116    Description:
117    
118    Eliminated the "dont_move_libraries" directive in config/targets.
119    (The mechanism was broken and could not be fixed easily.  Moreover,
120    there does not seem to be any reason not to move all libraries into
121    lib during installation.  I originally implemented this directive as a
122    backward-compatibility feature when I first introduced the new CM.
123    Now that things have been stable for a long time and going back to the
124    old CM is not an option, there is no reason to keep it around.)

173    Tag: blume-20030926-ppautoload
174    Description:
175    
176    I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
177    invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
178    is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
179    appears in CM's autoload registry.  As a result, we see far fewer of
180    those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
181    
182    In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
183    implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
184    instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
185    
186    The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
187    (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
188    be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
189    "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
190    "A.t" in this case.  In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
191    a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
192    names in the current environment.)

197    Tag: blume-20030924-installer
198    Description:
199    
200    Another installer tweak:  All the ML code for the installer is now
201    compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
202    $smlnj/installer.cm.  The installation then simply invokes
203    
204       sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
205    
206    and everything happens automagically.
207    
208    Win32:  ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
209    Unix:   ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
210            and BINDIR.
211    
212    The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
213    is in sync with the APIs of the main system.  Also, the installer is
214    somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.
