18    Tag: blume-20030926-ppautoload
19    Description:
21    I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
22    invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
23    is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
24    appears in CM's autoload registry.  As a result, we see far fewer of
25    those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
27    In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
28    implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
29    instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
31    The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
32    (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
33    be B.y, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
34    "?.B.t" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
35    "A.t" in this case.  In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
36    a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
37    names in the current environment.)

42    Tag: blume-20030924-installer
43    Description:
45    Another installer tweak:  All the ML code for the installer is now
46    compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
47    $smlnj/installer.cm.  The installation then simply invokes
49       sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
51    and everything happens automagically.
53    Win32:  ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
54    Unix:   ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
55            and BINDIR.
57    The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
58    is in sync with the APIs of the main system.  Also, the installer is
59    somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

65    Description:
67    Added a signature SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET to basis.cm.  This is like SOCKET
68    but excludes all non-blocking operations.  Defined SOCKET (in Basis)
69    and CML_SOCKET in terms of SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET.  Removed superfluous
70    implementations of non-blocking operations from CML's Socket
71    structure.

76    Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
77    Description:
79    1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
80       This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
81       that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
82       blocking or non-blocking.  This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
83       call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
85    2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
86       making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
87       between Unix and Win32.
89    3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
90       (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
91       since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
93    4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
94       provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
95       of CML.
97    5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53.  Minor cleanup in Real64 code.
