61    Tag: blume-20031104-move-libraries
62    Description:
63    
64    Eliminated the "dont_move_libraries" directive in config/targets.
65    (The mechanism was broken and could not be fixed easily.  Moreover,
66    there does not seem to be any reason not to move all libraries into
67    lib during installation.  I originally implemented this directive as a
68    backward-compatibility feature when I first introduced the new CM.
69    Now that things have been stable for a long time and going back to the
70    old CM is not an option, there is no reason to keep it around.)

119    Tag: blume-20030926-ppautoload
120    Description:
121    
122    I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
123    invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
124    is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
125    appears in CM's autoload registry.  As a result, we see far fewer of
126    those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
127    
128    In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
129    implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
130    instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
131    
132    The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
133    (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
134    be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
135    "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
136    "A.t" in this case.  In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
137    a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
138    names in the current environment.)

143    Tag: blume-20030924-installer
144    Description:
145    
146    Another installer tweak:  All the ML code for the installer is now
147    compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
148    $smlnj/installer.cm.  The installation then simply invokes
149    
150       sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
151    
152    and everything happens automagically.
153    
154    Win32:  ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
155    Unix:   ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
156            and BINDIR.
157    
158    The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
159    is in sync with the APIs of the main system.  Also, the installer is
160    somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

165    Tag: blume-20030924-synsock
166    Description:
167    
168    Added a signature SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET to basis.cm.  This is like SOCKET
169    but excludes all non-blocking operations.  Defined SOCKET (in Basis)
170    and CML_SOCKET in terms of SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET.  Removed superfluous
171    implementations of non-blocking operations from CML's Socket
172    structure.

177    Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
178    Description:
179    
180    1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
181       This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
182       that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
183       blocking or non-blocking.  This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
184       call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
185    
186    2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
187       making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
188       between Unix and Win32.
189    
190    3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
191       (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
192       since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
193    
194    4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
195       provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
196       of CML.
197    
198    5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53.  Minor cleanup in Real64 code.
