36    Tag: blume-20040511-allsource
37    Description:
38    
39    The installer now honors the "src-smlnj" target again, although its meaning
40    has changed from "all sources required for the compiler" to "all sources
41    the installer knows about".  In other words, if you enable "src-smlnj"
42    in the "targets" file, then the installer will pull in sources for
43    everything.  (Notice that this refers to source code only.  Compiled
44    code is still only installed for modules that were requested explicitly
45    or which are required for other modules that were requested explicitly.)

51    Description:
52    
53    Fixed IEEEReal.scan (and .fromString) so that if there is an overflow
54    in the exponent calculation we get INF or ZERO (depending on the mantissa
55    and the sign of the exponent).

78    Tag: leunga-20040319-cygwin-nlffi
79    Description:
80    
81    Fixed the runtime so that ml-nlffi-lib runs on the cygwin version
82    of SML/NJ.  The problem is that
83    
84       lib = dlopen(NULL, ...)
85       f   = dlsym(lib, "malloc");
86    
87    does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
88    such as 'malloc' during linking.  We fixed this by explicitly
89    exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
90    
91        -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
92    
93    where cygwin.def is a file containing all the symbols that
94    we wish to export.
95    
96    I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
97    do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
98    we build the native win32 version with the system
99    calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

105    Description:
106    
107    Fixed problem with IntInf.fmt (sign would show up on the right instead
108    of on the left for BIN, OCT, and HEX).

114    Description:
115    
116    Fixed problem with installer script (unix only) where bin/ml-yacc and
117    friends pointed (via symlinks) to absolute locations instead of just
118    .run-sml.  This was reported by Vesa A Norrman.

166    Tag: blume-20031104-move-libraries
167    Description:
168    
169    Eliminated the "dont_move_libraries" directive in config/targets.
170    (The mechanism was broken and could not be fixed easily.  Moreover,
171    there does not seem to be any reason not to move all libraries into
172    lib during installation.  I originally implemented this directive as a
173    backward-compatibility feature when I first introduced the new CM.
174    Now that things have been stable for a long time and going back to the
175    old CM is not an option, there is no reason to keep it around.)

224    Tag: blume-20030926-ppautoload
225    Description:
226    
227    I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
228    invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
229    is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
230    appears in CM's autoload registry.  As a result, we see far fewer of
231    those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
232    
233    In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
234    implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
235    instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
236    
237    The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
238    (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
239    be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
240    "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
241    "A.t" in this case.  In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
242    a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
243    names in the current environment.)

248    Tag: blume-20030924-installer
249    Description:
250    
251    Another installer tweak:  All the ML code for the installer is now
252    compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
253    $smlnj/installer.cm.  The installation then simply invokes
254    
255       sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
256    
257    and everything happens automagically.
258    
259    Win32:  ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
260    Unix:   ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
261            and BINDIR.
262    
263    The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
264    is in sync with the APIs of the main system.  Also, the installer is
265    somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

270    Tag: blume-20030924-synsock
271    Description:
272    
273    Added a signature SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET to basis.cm.  This is like SOCKET
274    but excludes all non-blocking operations.  Defined SOCKET (in Basis)
275    and CML_SOCKET in terms of SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET.  Removed superfluous
276    implementations of non-blocking operations from CML's Socket
277    structure.

282    Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
283    Description:
284    
285    1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
286       This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
287       that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
288       blocking or non-blocking.  This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
289       call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
290    
291    2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
292       making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
293       between Unix and Win32.
294    
295    3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
296       (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
297       since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
298    
299    4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
300       provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
301       of CML.
302    
303    5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53.  Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

320    Description:
321    
322    1. new-install.sh -> install.sh
323    2. changed default CM "metadata" directory name to ".cm" (instead of "CM")
324    3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen
325       at install time (by setting the CM_DIR_ARC environment variable
326       during installation); once installation is complete, the name is
327       fixed

346    1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as
347       this seems to be controversial at the moment) and used those in
348       Posix.ProcEnv.times.
349    
350    2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
351    
352    3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.
353       For example, fromLargeInt never needs to look at more than 3 "big
354       digits" to get its 53 bits of precision.
