18    Description:
19    
20    1. Tools.registerStdShellCmdTool (from smlnj/cm/tool.cm) takes an
21    additional argument called "template" which is an optional string that
22    specifiel the layout of the tool command line.  See the CM manual for
23    explanation.
24    
25    2. A special-purpose tool can be "regisitered" by simply dropping the
26    corresponding <...>-tool.cm (and/or <...>-ext.cm) into the same
27    directory where the .cm file lives that uses this tool.  (The
28    behavior/misfeature until now was to look for the tool description
29    files in the current working directory.)  As before, tool description
30    files could also be anchored -- in which case they can live anywhere
31    they like.  Following the recent e-mail discussion, this change should
32    make it easier to have special-purpose tools that are shipped together
33    with the sources of the program that uses them.

39    Description:
40    
41    I added a re-written version of Dave's fixpt script to src/system.
42    Changes relative to the original version:
43      - sh-ified (not everybody has ksh)
44      - automatically figures out which architecture it runs on
45      - uses ./makeml a bit more cleverly
46      - never invokes ./installml (and, thus, does not clobber your
47        good and working installation of sml in case something goes wrong)
48      - accepts max iteration count using option "-iter <n>"
49      - accepts a "base" name using option "-base <base>"
50    
51    It does not build any extraneous heap images but directly rebuilds
52    bin- and boot-hierarchies using makeml's "-rebuild" switch. Finally,
53    it can incorporate existing bin- and boot- hierarchies.  For example,
54    suppose the base is set to "sml" (which is the default).  Then it
55    successively builds
56    
57            sml.bin.<arch>-unix and sml.boot.<arch>-unix
58    then    sml1.bin.<arch>-unix and sml1.boot.<arch>-unix
59    then    sml2.bin.<arch>-unix and sml2.boot.<arch>-unix
60    ...
61    then    sml<n>.bin.<arch>-unix and sml<n>.boot.<arch>-unix
62    
63    and so on.  If any of these already exist, it will just use what's
64    there.  In particular, many people will have the initial set of bin
65    and boot files around, so this saves time for at least one full
66    rebuild.  Having sets of the form <base><k>.{bin,boot}.<arch>-unix for
67    <k>=1,2,... is normally not a good idea when invoking fixpt.  However,
68    they might be the result of an earlier partial run of fixpt (which
69    perhaps got accidentially killed).  In this case, fixpt will quickly
70    move through what exists before continuing where it left off earlier,
71    and, thus, saves a lot of time.
