19    Description:
20    
21    Changed the interface to the KMP routine in PreString and fixed
22    a minor bug in one place where it was used.

35    Tag: leunga-20020321-x86-fp-cfg
36    Description:
37    
38      1. Recoded the buggy parts of x86-fp.
39    
40         a. All the block reordering code has been removed.
41            We now depend on the block placement phases to do this work.
42    
43         b. Critical edge splitting code has been simplified and moved into the
44            CFG modules, as where they belong.
45    
46         Both of these were quite buggy and complex.  The code is now much, much
47         simpler.
48    
49      2. X86 backend.
50    
51         a. Added instructions for 64-bit support.  Instruction selection for
52            64-bit has not been committed, however, since that
53            requires changes to MLTREE which haven't been approved by
54            Lal and John.
55    
56         b. Added support for FUCOMI and FUCOMIP when generating code for
57            PentiumPro and above.  We only generate these instructions in
58            the fast-fp mode.
59    
60         c. Added cases for JP and JNP in X86FreqProps.
61    
62      3. CFG
63    
64         CFG now has a bunch of methods for edge splitting and merging.
65    
66      4. Machine description.
67    
68         John's simplification of MLTREE_BASIS.fcond broke a few machine
69         description things:
70    
71         rtl-build.{sig,sml} and hppa.mdl fixed.
72    
73         NOTE: the machine description stuff in the repository is still broken.
74               Again, I can't put my fixes in because that involves
75               changes to MLTREE.

81    Description:
82    
83    Implemented Knuth-Morris-Pratt string matching in PreString and used
84    it for String.isSubstring, Substring.isSubstring, and
85    Substring.position.
86    
87    (Might need some stress-testing.  Simple examples worked fine.)

92    Tag: blume-20020319-witnesses
93    Description:
94    
95    Added a structure C.W and functions convert/Ptr.convert to ml-nlffi-lib.
96    
97    This implements a generic mechanism for changing constness qualifiers
98    anywhere within big C types without resorting to outright "casts".
99    (So far, functions such as C.rw/C.ro or C.Ptr.rw/C.Ptr.ro only let you
100    modify the constness at the outermost level.)
101    The implementation of "convert" is based on the idea of "witness"
102    values -- values that are not used by the operation but whose types
103    "testify" to their applicability.  On the implementation side, "convert"
104    is simply a projection (returning its second curried argument).  With
105    cross-module inlining, it should not result in any machine code being
106    generated.

111    Tag: blume-20020315-basis
112    Description:
113    
114    Provided (preliminary?) implementations for
115    
116      {String,Substring}.{concatWith,isSuffix,isSubstring}
117    
118    and
119    
120      Substring.full
121    
122    Those are in the Basis spec but they were missing in SML/NJ.

127    Tag: blume-20020314-controls
128    Description:
129    
130    Controls:
131    ---------
132    
133    1. Factored out the recently-added Controls : CONTROLS stuff and put
134       it into its own library $/controls-lib.cm.  The source tree for
135       this is under src/smlnj-lib/Controls.
136    
137    2. Changed the names of types and functions in this interface, so they
138       make a bit more "sense":
139    
140          module -> registry
141          'a registry -> 'a group
142    
143    3. The interface now deals in ref cells only.  The getter/setter interface
144       is (mostly) gone.
145    
146    4. Added a function that lets one register an already-existing ref cell.
147    
148    5. Made the corresponding modifications to the rest of the code so that
149       everything compiles again.
150    
151    6. Changed the implementation of Controls.MLRISC back to something closer
152       to the original.  In particular, this module (and therefore MLRISC)
153       does not depend on Controls.  There now is some link-time code in
154       int-sys.sml that registers the MLRISC controls with the Controls
155       module.
156    
157    CM:
158    ---
159    
160      * One can now specify the lambda-split aggressiveness in init.cmi.
