19    Description:
21    Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
22    The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
23    CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it.  It now
24    gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
26    This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the
27    metadata directory (default: .cm) is actually configurable at
28    installation time.

34    Description:
36    Added Posix.IO.mk{Bin,Text}{Reader,Writer} by lifting their respective
37    implementations from internal modules PosixBinPrimIO and PosixTextPrimIO.

51    Here is David's e-mail:
53    Hi,
55    Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
56    that will enable socket support under Windows.
58    To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
59    1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
60    2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
61       110.45 installation.
62    3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
64    The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
65    I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
66    (which worked fine).  Especially the functions that use ioctl
67    are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
69    I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
70    but need socket support in order to use it.  This is the first time I
71    even had a look at the sml/nj source,  so please review my changes
72    before making this part of the distribution!  Here are a few issues
73    that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
74    familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
76    - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
77      exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
78      of these functions is
80    - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
81      only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
83    - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
84      does not process its return value since I don't know how to
85      report an error upwards.
87    - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
88      the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
89      Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
90      when the process finishes.
92    - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
93      no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
95    - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
97    We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
98    with it.  I hope this contribution will help you.
100    Keep up the good work!
