27    Description:
28    
29    * Implemented access to signed and unsigned long long data in NLFFI.
30    (The parameter-passing part of the picture has not complete. But
31    data structure access seems to work.)
32    
33    * Fixed CM's incorrect assumption that the PPC is little-endian.
34      (On the Mac, it is big-endian.  And that's currently our only
35      PPC platform.)

41    Description:
42    
43    Some cleanup in the $c/memory.cm library: separated some concerns by
44    moving allocation code and memory access code each into their own
45    files.

51    Description:
52    
53        The Unix I/O library of SML/NJ on cygwin does not understand
54    Windows style pathname, so problems arise when SMLNJ_HOME is set
55    to a Windows style pathname.  _run-sml now converts SMLNJ_HOME
56    to a POSIX pathname on cygwin.

101    Description:
102    
103    Hacked some of the scripts (in particular: the installer) to cope with
104    spaces in filenames a bit better.  But beware: the current "solution"
105    is likely still full of bugs and inherently incomplete.  (We need to
106    do away with those shell scripts for a comprehensive solution.)

143    Description:
144    
145    Made sure CML compiles when Position = Int64.

148    Name: Matthias Blume (blume (at) tti - c (dot) org)
149    Date: 2004/11/24 14:30:00 CST
150    Tag: blume-20041124-position
151    Description:
152    
153    The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
154    equal to Int64.  The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
155    for the time being.
156    
157    To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
158    
159    1. Start sml
160    2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
161    3. Type
162          #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
163    4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
164    
165    This is barely tested.  The only test so far was a little SML program
166    counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
167    reading it character-by-character.  That test was successful.
168    
169    In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
170    added to the runtime system.

176    Description:
177    
178    Fixed a problem with unhelpful error messages related to problems with
179    .cm- or .sml files that appear as part of the sml command line.

210    Tag: blume-20041113-versiontool
211    Description:
212    
213    - Stripped down the versiontool: It now only handles the version number.
214      The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
215    
216    - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
217      translated.  In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
218      This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
219      more efficient code.  Important examples for where this matters are
220      the new int64 and word64 types.

234    Tag: blume-20041111-more64
235    Description:
236    
237    All the pieces of Word64 are now there, with the exception of the
238    conversions from and to LargeWord. (Eventually these need to be identities,
239    but for the time being they don't even make sense because LargeWord is
240    32-bit wide.)
241    
242    Also started to add similar support for Int64, but major pieces of that
243    are still missing.
244

248    Tag: blume-20041111-word64
249    Description:
250    
251    Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
252    seem to work.  There are a few odd pieces missing.  In particular,
253    I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
254    at the moment.
255    
256    Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64.  But
257    this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
258    go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
259    worse.  Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
260    simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

266    Description:

268    More 64-bit hacking (but still not even half-way there yet).
269    Also, some assorted improvements to the handling of 8-bit words.

286    New working version (110.50).  NEW BOOTFILES!
287    
288                 =====================
289    
290    Also:
291    
292      - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just
293        containing the URL string into a file containing
294        shell script code.  The code has access to the $VERSION variable.
295      - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
296      - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
297        normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
298    
299      (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
300       config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

316    
317    This is the HISTORY entry for two earlier commits, both concerning
318    the x86 c-calls code in MLRISC:
319    
320      - added a missing LOAD in the code that deals with struct arguments
321      - made sure the caller does not add the wrong number of bytes to the
322        stack pointer after a call of a function returning a struct
323        (the callee already pops the implicit argument which points to
324         the space reserved for the result)

340    Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
341    Description:
342    
343    Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
344    programs.  Here is how it works:
345    
346       1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
347          information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
348          BackTrace.monitor.  This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
349          main program could be modified from something like
350    
351             fun main (pgm, args) = ...
352    
353         to
354    
355            fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
356    
357       2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
358          library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
359          main function.
360    
361       3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
362          CM might have created in the past for your project).
363    
364       4. Build the system using this command line:
365    
366             ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
367                      myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
368    
369          instead of the usual
370    
371             ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
372    
373    I changed a library name:
374    
375       $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
376    
377    New libraries:
378    
379       $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
380          -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
381       $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
382          -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

397    Tag: blume-20041015-coverage
398    Description:
399    
400    * Test coverage tool added!
401    * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
402    
403        - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
404          library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
405        - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
406        - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
407        - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
408        - Coverage module is another such plugin
409    
410    To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
411    question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on.  This
412    can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
413    (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
414    
415    Plugins are selected at link time.  (Pre-compiled instrumented code
416    can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.)  When an
417    instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
418    enabled will come into effect for that module.
419    
420    To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
421    and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
422    To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
423    Coverage.install().
424    
425    Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
426    when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
427    
428    Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
429    explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

445    
446    Some rationalization of names:

448       structure BTrace -> structure TDPInstrument
449       etc.
450    
451    This is is preparation of using the original back-trace
452    instrumentation for other purposes.  "TDP" stands for
453    Trace/Debug/Profile.
454    
455    The control flag controlling whether instrumentation is on or off is now
456    registered under a different name, so instead of running sml as
457    
458     sml -Cinstrument.btrace-mode=true
459    
460    one has to say
461    
462     sml -Ctdp.instrument=true

472    regions being reported in error- and debug messages.

478    Description:
479    
480    Fixed handling of keywords in .cm files: After seeing "is" the lexer
481    treats subsequent occurrences of "group", "library", "source", "is",
482    "*", and "-" as ordinary identifiers rather than keywords.
483    
484    Most seriously, this fixes a problem with CM's "shell" tool.  The tool
485    is supposed to accept a tool argument called "source", but this did
486    not work because of the clash with the keyword.

529    Description:
530    
531    * Moved the "version" magic into its own little library under
532      src/system/smlnj/internal.  This avoids expensive reconstruction of
533      a stable src/compiler/core.cm.
534    
535    * At the same time, structure CompilerVersion is now known as
536      structure SMLNJVersion.
537    
538    * Arranged for the version tool to NOT kick in when rebuilding the system
539      (makeml -rebuild, fixpt).  Otherwise one would never reach a fixpoint.
540      Also, loading the versiontool does not work when rebuilding the system
541      because CM is not properly initialized at that time.

546    Tag: blume-20040929-autoversion
547    Description:
548    
549    Implemented some CM magic to have
550        file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
551    generated automagically.
552    The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
553    The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
554    The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
555    
556    If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
557    time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
558    then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
559    time CMB.make is invoked.
560    
561    The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
562    two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
563    binfiles incompatible.  Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
564    during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
565    
566    In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.
567    (This is the date that is printed in the banner.)

580    Tag: blume-20040927-controls
581    Description:
582    
583    Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
584    
585    1.   val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
586    
587       grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
588       in stage 2.
589    
590    2.   val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
591    
592       stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
593       but does all error checking in stage 1.
594       (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
595        something that might fail.  In some cases, notably in CM, one
596        already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
597        assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
598    
599    Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
600    "lazysml":
601       - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
602         old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
603       - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
604         (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

609    Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
610    Description:
611    
612    Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest.  The only
613    difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
614    set to true.  A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
615    by a file name suffix of ".lml".
616    
617    In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
618    supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect.  As a
619    result, the following three lines are equivalent:
620    
621        foo.sml : lazysml
622        foo.sml : sml (lazy)
623        foo.sml (lazy)
624    
625    The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
626    compilation.  The original setting is restored right after parsing and
627    after compilation, respectively.
628    
629    In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
630    ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
631    "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis.  The same rules that apply for "lazy"
632    apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
633    the general mechanism.)
634    
635    The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
636    There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
637    
638        foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
639        foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
640        foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
641        foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
642        foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
643    
644        etc.
645    
646    Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
647    if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
648    taken to be true).  Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
649    
650        foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
651        foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
652        foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
653        foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

952    - use paramAlloc to report c-calls with too many arguments

954    - added ccall_maxargspace to machspec (to implement the above)

956    - added option (default: on) for passing the name of the SML/NJ's "bin"
957      directory to "make"; the call looks like this:
958    
959         make <options> SMLNJ_BINDIR=<dir> <target>

971    NLFFI under Mac OS X now working (sort of).  This is largely untested,

973    
974    Note:  1. You have to make a new, clean build of the runtime system.
975           2. There are new BOOTFILES, you have to use them!
976              (Doing the bootstrap process yourself would be *very* painful!
977               If you absolutely have to do it, build the system under
978               a different architecture and then cross-compile.)

1005    Description:
1006    
1007    Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
1008    recent Basis spec.
1009    
1010    In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
1011    
1012       The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
1013       fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
1014       return the same stream every time.  This design is supposed to
1015       prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
1016    
1017       The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
1018       streams.  This cannot be done without having a handle on the
1019       stream in proc after all...
1020    
1021    I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
1022    
1023      The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
1024      Reap closes those.  If either or both of the two streams hadn't
1025      been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
1026      file descriptors directly.
1027    
1028    PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore.  If
1029    a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
1030    will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

1044    Description:
1045    
1046    CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
1047    descriptions.  The owner of a group is its next enclosing
1048    library. Each group must have a unique owner.  (There is a virtual
1049    "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
1050    library.)  Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
1051    and CM would check that such a declaration is correct.  The new scheme
1052    is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
1053    library.
1054    
1055    The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
1056    to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information.  The downside is
1057    that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
1058    CM.make.  Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
1059    libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
1060    cause real problems.

1079    Description:
1080    
1081    Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
1082    The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
1083    CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it.  It now
1084    gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
1085    
1086    This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the
1087    metadata directory (default: .cm) is actually configurable at
1088    installation time.

1104    
1105    Added previously missing support for many socket-related functions
1106    under win32.  Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
1107    for the voluminous patch!
1108    
1109    (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
1110    
1111    Here is David's e-mail:
1112    
1113    Hi,
1114    
1115    Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
1116    that will enable socket support under Windows.
1117    
1118    To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
1119    1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
1120    2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
1121       110.45 installation.
1122    3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
1123    
1124    The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
1125    I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
1126    (which worked fine).  Especially the functions that use ioctl
1127    are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
1128    
1129    I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
1130    but need socket support in order to use it.  This is the first time I
1131    even had a look at the sml/nj source,  so please review my changes
1132    before making this part of the distribution!  Here are a few issues
1133    that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
1134    familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
1135    
1136    - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
1137      exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
1138      of these functions is
1139    
1140    - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
1141      only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
1142    
1143    - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
1144      does not process its return value since I don't know how to
1145      report an error upwards.
1146    
1147    - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
1148      the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
1149      Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
1150      when the process finishes.
1151    
1152    - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
1153      no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
1154    
1155    - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
1156    
1157    We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
1158    with it.  I hope this contribution will help you.
1159    
1160    Keep up the good work!
1161

1200    in the "targets" file, then the installer will pull in sources for
1201    everything.  (Notice that this refers to source code only.  Compiled
1202    code is still only installed for modules that were requested explicitly
1203    or which are required for other modules that were requested explicitly.)

1239    Fixed the runtime so that ml-nlffi-lib runs on the cygwin version

1241    
1242       lib = dlopen(NULL, ...)
1243       f   = dlsym(lib, "malloc");
1244    
1245    does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
1246    such as 'malloc' during linking.  We fixed this by explicitly
1247    exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
1248    
1249        -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
1250    
1251    where cygwin.def is a file containing all the symbols that
1252    we wish to export.
1253    
1254    I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
1255    do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
1256    we build the native win32 version with the system
1257    calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

1383    Description:
1384    
1385    I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
1386    invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
1387    is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
1388    appears in CM's autoload registry.  As a result, we see far fewer of
1389    those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
1390    
1391    In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
1392    implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
1393    instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
1394    
1395    The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
1396    (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
1397    be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
1398    "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
1399    "A.t" in this case.  In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
1400    a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
1401    names in the current environment.)

1407    Description:
1408    
1409    Another installer tweak:  All the ML code for the installer is now
1410    compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
1411    $smlnj/installer.cm.  The installation then simply invokes
1412    
1413       sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
1414    
1415    and everything happens automagically.
1416    
1417    Win32:  ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
1418    Unix:   ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
1419            and BINDIR.
1420    
1421    The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
1422    is in sync with the APIs of the main system.  Also, the installer is
1423    somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.
