27    Description:
28    
29    Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
30    Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it.  Also modified
31    config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
32    of it on Unix systems.  (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
33    independent.)
34    
35    The installer can now install everything under Win32
36    as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
37    
38    Other changes:
39    
40      - made CML compile again under Win32
41      - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
42        and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
43      - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
44        same as type int;  under Win32 it isn't
45      - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
46      - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
47        (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
48        OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

54    Description:
55    
56    Made Win32 version of OS.FileSys.fullPath return current directory
57    when given an empty string.  This is what the spec says, and incidentally,
58    CM depends on it.  (CM otherwise goes into an infinite loop in certain
59    cases when presented with the name of a non-existing .cm file.)

64    Tag: blume-20030905-slices-etc
65    Description:
66    
67      1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
68         (draft) Basis spec.
69      2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
70         Basis spec.
71      3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
72         under 1. and 2.  (In some cases code had to be added to have it
73         match the new signatures.)
74      4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
75         of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
76         check the compiler version number and use old versions when
77         appropriate.
78      5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
79         dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
80      6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
81         CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
82         This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
83         CharVectorSlice.  (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
84      7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
85         new MONO_ARRAY signature.  (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
86      8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
87         (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
88      9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
89     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
90         Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
91         (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
92     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
93     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
94         mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
95     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
96         value counting microseconds.  This considerably simplified the
97         implementation of structure Time.  We now support negative time
98         values; scan and fromString handle signs.
99     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
100         ArraySlice).

105    Tag: blume-20030828-intinf
106    Description:
107    
108    This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
109    (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
110    and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
111    
112    There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
113    the system:
114    
115    Basis:
116            - Implemented IntInf.
117            - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
118            - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
119            - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
120    
121    compiler:
122            * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
123              - literals
124              - pattern matching
125              - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
126              - overloading on literals and operations
127    
128            This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
129            primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
130            operations in Core.  (The intinf type is completely abstract
131            to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
132    
133            * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal.  However, the compiler
134            does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
135            is the right thing to do there).
136    
137            * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
138    
139            * A word about conversion primops:
140            If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
141            CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
142            Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
143            translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
144            to add new Core calls.  For this reason, conversion primops
145            for intinf carry two arguments:  1. the numeric argument that
146            they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
147            can help with this conversion if necessary.  If CPS contract
148            eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
149            dead and goes away.  Intinf conversion primops that do not get
150            eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
151            core functions by a separate, new phase.
152    
153    interactive system:
154            - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
155            being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
156            - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
157            duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
158            use of library functionality.
159    
160    CM:
161            Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
162            are no longer silent.
163    
164    CKIT:
165            Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt.  I always decided
166            in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
167            CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
168            intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
169            FixedInt.
170    
171    Throughout the code:
172            Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
173            (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

180    Description:
181    
182    Merging changes from the mcz-branch development branch into trunk.
183    These changes involve replacement of the emulated old prettyprinter
184    interface with direct use of the SML/NJ Lib PP library, and fixing
185    of a couple of bugs (895, 1186) relating to error messages.  A new
186    prettyprinter for ast datatypes (Elaborator/print/ppast.{sig,sml})
187    has been added.

193    Description:
194    
195    Version number bumped to 110.42.9.  NEW BOOTFILES!!!
196    
197        http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
198    
199    This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32.  There are a
200    number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
201    unnoticed until now:
202    
203      - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
204        trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
205    
206      - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
207        corresponding Unix shell-scripts.  (See below.)
208    
209      - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly.  The main
210        difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
211        using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
212        to the script.  Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
213        as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
214        where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
215    
216      - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
217        is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation.  The new pickle format
218        is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
219    
220      - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
221        between native and standard syntax.  Placing a line of the form
222    
223            standard!
224    
225        into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
226        CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
227    
228            native!
229    
230        switches back to native style.  This was needed so that
231        path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
232    
233      - Runtime system:
234    
235          - win32-filesys.c:  get_file_time and set_file_time now
236            access modification time, not creation time.
237    
238          - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
239    
240          - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
241    
242       - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
243            and other Unix-environments for windows.)
244    
245       - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
246         which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
247    
248    .bat scripts:
249    
250       Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
251    
252       - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat:  Driver scripts for standalone
253         applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
254       - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
255       - config\install.bat:  Analogous to config/install.sh.  This requires
256         that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
257         (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
258         Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
259         and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
260         sml.boot.x86-win32.
261         The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
262         It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc.  No other
263         libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
264         are part of the compiler.)
265       - link-sml.bat:  analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
266    
267    Unrelated bug fixes:
268    
269      - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
270        types.
271      - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml.  (Would not compile
272        otherwise.)

297    
298    Two changes:
299    
300      1. Added a flag for controlling whether non-exhaustive bindings will
301         be treated as errors (default is false).
302      2. Cleaned up the *entire* source tree so that CMB.make goes through
303         without a single non-exhaustive match- or bind warning.

309    Description:
310    
311    1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
312    
313       This mainly affects the quality of error messages.  However, some
314       of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
315       the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
316       the "macro-expansion" that was going on before.  Plus, the mach-
317       compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
318       if-expression.)
319    
320    2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
321       interactive loop.

326    Tag: leunga-20030516-cygwin-runtime
327    Description:
328    
329        Ported the runtime system to cygwin, which uses the unix
330    x86-unix bin files.  Missing/buggy features:
331    
332       o getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr: these functions seem to be missing in
333         the Cygwin library.
334       o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
335       o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.
336    
337       A new set of binfiles is located at:
338    
339         http://www.dorsai.org/~leunga/boot.x86-unix.tgz
340    
341       This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.
342       Other x86 versions can use the existing binfiles.
