26    Tag: Release_110_42
27    Description:
28    
29    In good old tradition, there has been a slight hiccup so that we have
30    to patch 110.42 after the fact.   The old release tag has been replaced
31    (see below).
32    
33    The change solves a problem with two competing approaches the
34    configuration problem regarding MacOS 10.1 vs. MacOS 10.2 which got in
35    each other's way.
36    
37    This change only affects the runtime system code and the installer script.
38    (No new bootfiles.)

52    Description:
53    
54    The mltree operator DIVS must be implemented with an overflow check on
55    the PPC because the hardware indicates divide-by-zero using "overflow" as
56    well.

61    Tag: blume-20020723-smlnj-home
62    Description:
63    
64    Sml now senses the SMLNJ_HOME environment variable.  If this is set,
65    then the bin dir is assumed to be in $SMLNJ_HOME/bin and (unless
66    CM_PATHCONFIG is also set), the path configuration file is assumed
67    to be in $SMLNJ_HOME/lib/pathconfig.  This way one can easily move
68    the entire tree to some other place and everything will "just work".
69    
70    (Companion commands such as ml-build and ml-makedepend also sense this
71    variable.)

102    Description:
103    
104    Fixed a bug in translation of INLMAX (and INLMIN) for the floating-point
105    case.  (The sense of the isNaN test was reversed -- which made min and
106    max always return their first argument.)

121    
122    I back-ported my implementation of IEEEReal.fromString from the
123    idlbasis-devel branch so that we can test it.
124    
125    Another small change is that ppDec tries to give more information
126    than just "<sig>" in the case of functors.  However, this code is
127    broken in some mysterious way if the functor's body's signature
128    has not been declared by ascription but gets inferred from the
129    implementation.  This needs fixing...

182    - John tweaked runtime to be silent on heap export (except when

191    Description:
192    
193    - Added ControlUtil structure to control-lib.cm.
194    - Use it throughout.
195    - Used Controls facility to define MLRISC controls (as opposed to
196      registering MLRISC control ref cells with Controls after the fact)
197    - Fixed messed-up controls priorities.
198    
199    * Removed again all the stuff from config/preloads that one wouldn't
200      be able to preload at the time the initial heap image is built.
201      (Many libraries, e.g., CML, do not exist yet at this time.  The
202       only libraries that can be preloaded via config/preloads are those
203       that come bundled with the bootfiles.)

228    Description:
229    
230    0. John Reppy made several modifications to the SML/NJ library.
231       In particular, there is a shiny new controls-lib.cm.
232    
233    1. Pushed new controls interface through compiler so that everything
234       compiles again.
235    
236    2. Added FormatComb and FORMAT_COMB to the CML version of the
237       SML/NJ library (so that CML compiles again).
238    
239    3. Modified init scripts because XXX_DEFAULT environment variables
240       are no longer with us.  (Boot-time initialization is now done
241       using the same environment variables that are also used for
242       startup-time initialization of controls.)

247    Tag: george-20020515-pseudo-op-decls
248    Description:
249    
250            All pseudo-ops emitted before the first segment declaration
251    such as TEXT, DATA, and BSS directives are assumed to be global
252    declarations and are emitted first in the assembly file. This is
253    useful in a number of situations where one has pseudo-ops that are not
254    specific to any segment, and also works around the constraint that one
255    cannot have client pseudo-ops in the TEXT segment.
256    
257            Because no segment is associated with these declarations it is
258    an error to allocate any space or objects before the first segment
259    directive and an exception will be raised. However, we cannot make
260    this check for client pseudo-ops.
261    
262            These top level declarations are a field in the CFG graph_info.
263    In theory you can continue to add to this field after the CFG has been
264    built -- provided you know what you are doing;-)

271    
272    A few minor bugfixes:
273    
274      - Stopgap measure for bug recently reported by Elsa Gunter (ppDec).
275        (Bogus printouts for redefined bindings still occur.  Compiler
276        bug should no longer occur now.  We need to redo the prettyprinter
277        from scratch.)
278    
279      - CM pathname printer now also adds escape sequences for ( and )
280    
281      - commend and docu fixes for ml-nlffi

286    Tag: blume-20020510-erg-textio
287    Description:
288    
289    Applied the following bugfix provided by Emden Gansner:
290    
291        Output is corrupted when outputSubstr is used rather than output.
292    
293        The problem occurs when a substring
294    
295            ss = (s, dataStart, dataLen)
296    
297        where dataStart > 0, fills a stream buffer with avail bytes left.
298        avail bytes of s, starting at index dataStart, are copied into the
299        buffer, the buffer is flushed, and then the remaining dataLen-avail
300        bytes of ss are copied into the beginning of the buffer. Instead of
301        starting this copy at index dataStart+avail in s, the current code
302        starts the copy at index avail.
303    
304        Fix:
305        In text-io-fn.sml, change line 695 from
306             val needsFlush = copyVec(v, avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)
307        to
308             val needsFlush = copyVec(v, dataStart+avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)

323    Tag: blume-20020401-x86div
324    Description:
325    
326    Added full support for div/mod/rem/quot on the x86, using the machine
327    instruction's two results (without clumsily recomputing the remainder)
328    directly where appropriate.
329    
330    Some more extensive power-of-two support was added to the x86 instruction
331    selector (avoiding expensive divs, mods, and muls where they can be
332    replaced with cheaper shifts and masks).  However, this sort of thing
333    ought to be done earlier, e.g., within the CPS optimizer so that
334    all architectures benefit from it.
335    
336    The compiler compiles to a fixed point, but changes might be somewhat
337    fragile nevertheless.  Please, report any strange things that you might
338    see wrt. div/mod/quot/rem...

344    Description:
345    
346    Fixed my broken div/mod logic.  Unfortunately, this means that the
347    inline code for div/mod now has one more comparison than before.
348    Fast paths (quotient > 0 or remainder = 0) are not affected, though.
349    The problem was with quotient = 0, because that alone does not tell
350    us which way the rounding went.  One then has to look at whether
351    remainder and divisor have the same sign...  :(
352    
353    Anyway, I replaced the bootfiles with fresh ones...

359    Description:
360    
361    NEW BOOTFILES!!!    Version number bumped to 110.39.3.
362    
363    Primops have changed. This means that the bin/boot-file formats have
364    changed as well.
365    
366    To make sure that there is no confusion, I made a new version.
367    
368    
369    CHANGES:
370    
371    * removed REMT from mltree (remainder should never overflow).
372    
373    * added primops to deal with divisions of all flavors to the frontend
374    
375    * handled these primops all the way through so they map to their respective
376      MLRISC support
377    
378    * used these primops in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32
379    
380    * removed INLDIV, INLMOD, and INLREM as they are no longer necessary
381    
382    * parameterized INLMIN, INLMAX, and INLABS by a numkind
383    
384    * translate.sml now deals with all flavors of INL{MIN,MAX,ABS}, including
385      floating point
386    
387    * used INL{MIN,MAX,ABS} in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32,
388      and Real (but Real.abs maps to a separate floating-point-only primop)
389    
390    
391    TODO items:
392    
393    * Hacked Alpha32 instruction selection, disabling the selection of REMx
394      instructions because the machine instruction encoder cannot handle
395      them.  (Hppa, PPC, and Sparc instruction selection did not handle
396      REM in the first place, and REM is supported by the x86 machine coder.)
397    
398    * Handle DIV and MOD with DIV_TO_NEGINF directly in the x86 instruction
399      selection phase.  (The two can be streamlined because the hardware
400      delivers both quotient and remainder at the same time anyway.)
401    
402    * Think about what to do with "valOf(Int32.minInt) div ~1" and friends.
403      (Currently the behavior is inconsistent both across architectures and
404      wrt. the draft Basis spec.)
405    
406    * Word8 should eventually be handled natively, too.
407    
408    * There seems to be one serious bug in mltree-gen.sml.  It appears, though,
409      as if there currently is no execution path that could trigger it in
410      SML/NJ.  (The assumptions underlying functions arith and promotable do not
411      hold for things like multiplication and division.)

416    Tag: blume-20020327-mlrisc-divisions
417    Description:
418    
419    Added support for all four division operations (ML's div, mod, quot,
420    and rem) to MLRISC.  In the course of doing so, I also rationalized
421    the naming (no more annoying switch-around of DIV and QUOT), by
422    parameterizing the operation by div_rounding_mode (which can be either
423    DIV_TO_ZERO or DIV_TO_NEGINF).
424    
425    The generic MLTreeGen functor takes care of compiling all four
426    operations down to only round-to-zero div.
427    
428    Missing pieces:
429    
430      * Doing something smarter than relying on MLTreeGen on architectures
431        like, e.g., the x86 where hardware division delivers both quotient and
432        remainder at the same time.  With this, the implementation of the
433        round-to-neginf operations could be further streamlined.
434    
435      * Remove inlining support for div/mod/rem from the frontend and replace it
436        with primops that get carried through to the backend.  Do this for all
437        int and word types.

443    Description:
444    
445    I improved (hopefully without breaking them) the implementation of Int.div,
446    Int.mod, and Int.rem.   For this, the code in translate.sml now takes
447    advantage of the following observations:
448    
449      Let  q = x quot y      r = x rem y
450           d = x div  y      m = x mod y
451    
452    where "quot" is the round-to-zero version of integer division that
453    hardware usually provides.  Then we have:
454    
455         r = x - q * y        where neither the * nor the - will overflow
456         d = if q >= 0 orelse x = q * y then q else q - 1
457                              where neither the * nor the - will overflow
458         m = if q >= 0 orelse r = 0 then r else r + y
459                              where the + will not overflow
460    
461    This results in substantial simplification of the generated code.
462    The following table shows the number of CFG nodes and edges generated
463    for
464            fun f (x, y) = x OPER y
465            (* with OPER \in div, mod, quot, rem *)

506    Description:
507    
508      1. Changes to FLINT primops:
509    
510        (* make a call to a C-function;
511         * The primop carries C function prototype information and specifies
512         * which of its (ML-) arguments are floating point. C prototype
513         * information is for use by the backend, ML information is for
514         * use by the CPS converter. *)
515      | RAW_CCALL of { c_proto: CTypes.c_proto,
516                       ml_args: ccall_type list,
517                       ml_res_opt: ccall_type option,
518                       reentrant : bool
519                     } option
520       (* Allocate uninitialized storage on the heap.
521        * The record is meant to hold short-lived C objects, i.e., they
522        * are not ML pointers.  With the tag, the representation is
523        * the same as RECORD with tag tag_raw32 (sz=4), or tag_fblock (sz=8)
524        *)
525      | RAW_RECORD of {tag:bool,sz:int}
526      and ccall_type = CCALL_INT32 | CCALL_REAL64 | CCALL_ML_PTR
527    
528      2.  These CPS primops are now overloaded:
529    
530           rawload of {kind:numkind}
531           rawstore of {kind:numkind}
532    
533          The one argument form is:
534    
535             rawload {kind} address
536    
537          The two argument form is:
538    
539             rawload {kind} [ml object, byte-offset]
540    
541      3. RAW_CCALL/RCC now takes two extra arguments:
542    
543         a. The first is whether the C call is reentrant, i.e., whether
544            ML state should be saved and restored.
545         b. The second argument is a string argument specifying the name of
546            library and the C function.
547    
548         These things are currently not handled in the code generator, yet.
549    
550      4. In CProto,
551    
552         An encoding type of "bool" means "ml object" and is mapped into
553         C prototype of PTR.  Note that "bool" is different than "string",
554         even though "string" is also mapped into PTR, because "bool"
555         is assigned an CPS type of BOGt, while "string" is assigned INT32t.
556    
557      5. Pickler/unpicker
558    
559         Changed to handle RAW_RECORD and newest RAW_CCALL
560    
561      6. MLRiscGen,
562    
563         1. Changed to handle the new rawload/rawstore/rawrecord operators.
564         2. Code for handling C Calls has been moved to a new module CPSCCalls,
565            in the file CodeGen/cpscompile/cps-c-calls.sml
566    
567      7. Added the conditional move operator
568    
569             condmove of branch
570    
571         to cps.  Generation of this is still buggy so it is currently
572         disabled.

578    Description:
579    
580    Implemented the Ball-Larus branch prediction-heuristics, and
581    incorporated graphical viewers for control flow graphs.
582    
583    Ball-Larus Heuristics:
584    ---------------------
585    See the file compiler/CodeGen/cpscompile/cpsBranchProb.sml.
586    
587    By design it uses the Dempster-Shafer theory for combining
588    probabilities.  For example, in the function:
589    
590        fun f(n,acc) = if n = 0 then acc else f(n-1, n*acc)
591    
592    the ball-larus heuristics predicts that the n=0 is unlikely
593    (OH-heuristic), and the 'then' branch is unlikely because of the
594    RH-heuristic -- giving the 'then' branch an even lower combined
595    probability using the Dempster-Shafer theory.
596    
597    Finally, John Reppy's loop analysis in MLRISC, further lowers the
598    probability of the 'then' branch because of the loop in the else
599    branch.
600    
601    
602    Graphical Viewing:
603    ------------------
604    I merely plugged in Allen's graphical viewers into the compiler. The
605    additional code is not much. At the top level, saying:
606    
607            Control.MLRISC.getFlag "cfg-graphical-view" := true;
608    
609    will display the graphical view of the control flow graph just before
610    back-patching.  daVinci must be in your path for this to work. If
611    daVinci is not available, then the default viewer can be changed
612    using:
613    
614            Control.MLRISC.getString "viewer"
615    
616    which can be set to "dot" or "vcg" for the corresponding viewers. Of
617    course, these viewers must be in your path.
618    
619    The above will display the compilation unit at the level of clusters,
620    many of which are small, boring, and un-interesting. Also setting:
621    
622            Control.MLRISC.getInt "cfg-graphical-view_size"
623    
624    will display clusters that are larger than the value set by the above.

647    Tag: leunga-20020321-x86-fp-cfg
648    Description:
649    
650      1. Recoded the buggy parts of x86-fp.
651    
652         a. All the block reordering code has been removed.
653            We now depend on the block placement phases to do this work.
654    
655         b. Critical edge splitting code has been simplified and moved into the
656            CFG modules, as where they belong.
657    
658         Both of these were quite buggy and complex.  The code is now much, much
659         simpler.
660    
661      2. X86 backend.
662    
663         a. Added instructions for 64-bit support.  Instruction selection for
664            64-bit has not been committed, however, since that
665            requires changes to MLTREE which haven't been approved by
666            Lal and John.
667    
668         b. Added support for FUCOMI and FUCOMIP when generating code for
669            PentiumPro and above.  We only generate these instructions in
670            the fast-fp mode.
671    
672         c. Added cases for JP and JNP in X86FreqProps.
673    
674      3. CFG
675    
676         CFG now has a bunch of methods for edge splitting and merging.
677    
678      4. Machine description.
679    
680         John's simplification of MLTREE_BASIS.fcond broke a few machine
681         description things:
682    
683         rtl-build.{sig,sml} and hppa.mdl fixed.
684    
685         NOTE: the machine description stuff in the repository is still broken.
686               Again, I can't put my fixes in because that involves
687               changes to MLTREE.

705    Description:
706    
707    Added a structure C.W and functions convert/Ptr.convert to ml-nlffi-lib.
708    
709    This implements a generic mechanism for changing constness qualifiers
710    anywhere within big C types without resorting to outright "casts".
711    (So far, functions such as C.rw/C.ro or C.Ptr.rw/C.Ptr.ro only let you
712    modify the constness at the outermost level.)
713    The implementation of "convert" is based on the idea of "witness"
714    values -- values that are not used by the operation but whose types
715    "testify" to their applicability.  On the implementation side, "convert"
716    is simply a projection (returning its second curried argument).  With
717    cross-module inlining, it should not result in any machine code being
718    generated.

740    Description:
741    
742    Controls:
743    ---------
744    
745    1. Factored out the recently-added Controls : CONTROLS stuff and put
746       it into its own library $/controls-lib.cm.  The source tree for
747       this is under src/smlnj-lib/Controls.
748    
749    2. Changed the names of types and functions in this interface, so they
750       make a bit more "sense":
751    
752          module -> registry
753          'a registry -> 'a group
754    
755    3. The interface now deals in ref cells only.  The getter/setter interface
756       is (mostly) gone.
757    
758    4. Added a function that lets one register an already-existing ref cell.
759    
760    5. Made the corresponding modifications to the rest of the code so that
761       everything compiles again.
762    
763    6. Changed the implementation of Controls.MLRISC back to something closer
764       to the original.  In particular, this module (and therefore MLRISC)
765       does not depend on Controls.  There now is some link-time code in
766       int-sys.sml that registers the MLRISC controls with the Controls
767       module.
768    
769    CM:
770    ---
771    
772      * One can now specify the lambda-split aggressiveness in init.cmi.

791    >   raised at: ../MLRISC/control/mlriscErrormsg.sml:16.14-16.19
792    
793    The problem was that the code generator did not generate any fp registers
794    in this case, and the ra didn't know that it needed to run the X86FP phase to
795    translate the pseudo fp instruction.   This only happened with unary fp
796    operators in certain situations.
