37    Description:
38    
39    Eliminated the "dont_move_libraries" directive in config/targets.
40    (The mechanism was broken and could not be fixed easily.  Moreover,
41    there does not seem to be any reason not to move all libraries into
42    lib during installation.  I originally implemented this directive as a
43    backward-compatibility feature when I first introduced the new CM.
44    Now that things have been stable for a long time and going back to the
45    old CM is not an option, there is no reason to keep it around.)

94    Tag: blume-20030926-ppautoload
95    Description:
96    
97    I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
98    invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
99    is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
100    appears in CM's autoload registry.  As a result, we see far fewer of
101    those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
102    
103    In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
104    implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
105    instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
106    
107    The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
108    (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
109    be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
110    "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
111    "A.t" in this case.  In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
112    a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
113    names in the current environment.)

119    Description:
120    
121    Another installer tweak:  All the ML code for the installer is now
122    compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
123    $smlnj/installer.cm.  The installation then simply invokes
124    
125       sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
126    
127    and everything happens automagically.
128    
129    Win32:  ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
130    Unix:   ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
131            and BINDIR.
132    
133    The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
134    is in sync with the APIs of the main system.  Also, the installer is
135    somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

140    Tag: blume-20030924-synsock
141    Description:
142    
143    Added a signature SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET to basis.cm.  This is like SOCKET
144    but excludes all non-blocking operations.  Defined SOCKET (in Basis)
145    and CML_SOCKET in terms of SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET.  Removed superfluous
146    implementations of non-blocking operations from CML's Socket
147    structure.

152    Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
153    Description:
154    
155    1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
156       This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
157       that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
158       blocking or non-blocking.  This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
159       call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
160    
161    2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
162       making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
163       between Unix and Win32.
164    
165    3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
166       (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
167       since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
168    
169    4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
170       provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
171       of CML.
172    
173    5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53.  Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

189    Tag: blume-20030919-cmdir
190    Description:
191    
192    1. new-install.sh -> install.sh
193    2. changed default CM "metadata" directory name to ".cm" (instead of "CM")
194    3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen
195       at install time (by setting the CM_DIR_ARC environment variable
196       during installation); once installation is complete, the name is
197       fixed

214    Description:
215    
216    1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as
217       this seems to be controversial at the moment) and used those in
218       Posix.ProcEnv.times.
219    
220    2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
221    
222    3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.
223       For example, fromLargeInt never needs to look at more than 3 "big
224       digits" to get its 53 bits of precision.
