18    Description:
19    
20    The main change is that I added function CM.sources as a generalized
21    version of the earlier CM.makedepend.  This entails the following
22    additional changes:
23    
24      - CM.makedepend has been dropped.
25    
26      - CM manual has been updated.
27    
28      - TOOLS signature and API have been changed.

34    Description:
35    
36      Various bug fixes and new features for C--, Moby and MLRISC optimizations.
37    None of these affect SML/NJ.
38    
39    1. Register Allocation
40    
41        a. A new ra spilling module (ra/ra-spill-with-renaming) is implemented.
42           This module tries to remove local (i.e. basic block level) redundancies
43           during spilling.
44    
45        b. A new framework for performing region based register allocation.
46           Not yet entirely functional.
47    
48    2. X86
49    
50       a. DefUse for POP was missing the stack pointer [found by Lal]
51       b. Reload for CALL was incorrect in X86Spill [found by John]
52       c. Various fixes in X86Spill so that it can be used correctly for
53          the new spilling module.
54    
55    3. SSA/IR
56    
57       a. New module ir/dj-dataflow.sml implements elimination based
58          data flow analysis.
59    
60    4. MLRiscGen
61    
62       a. Fix for gc type annotation
63    
64    5. MDGen
65    
66       Various fixes for machine description -> ml code translation.  For ssa
67       only.

73    Description:
74    
75      Fermin has found a few assembly problems with constant expressions
76      generated in LabelExp.  Mostly, the problems involve extra parentheses,
77      which choke on dumb assemblers.  This is his fix.

98    Description:
99    
100    A new noweb tool has been added.  The existing system is entirely
101    unaffected by this, but some CM users have asked for renewed noweb
102    support.  Everything is documented in the CM manual.
103    
104    New (plugin) libraries:
105    
106       noweb-tool.cm
107       nw-ext.cm

113    Description:
114    
115    1. Fix for bug 1498
116       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sig
117       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sml
118         added toRealArray function
119       smlnj/src/compiler/MiscUtil/print/ppobj.sml
120         added check for tag Obj.RealArray to array printing case in ppObj
121    
122    2. Fix for bug 1510
123       smlnj/src/compiler/Semant/types/typesutil.sml
124         fixed definition of dummyargs (used by equalTycon) so that
125         dummy args are distinct types

130    Tag: blume-20000430-versions
131    Description:
132    
133    1. CM version numbering added.  This is an implementation of Lal's
134       proposal for adding version numbers and version checking to .cm
135       files.  Lal said that his proposal was just that -- a proposal.
136       For the time being I went ahead and implemented it so that people
137       can comment on it.  Everything is completely backward-compatible
138       (except for the stable library format, i.e., new bootfiles!).
139    
140       As usual, see the CM manual for details.
141    
142    2. An alternative syntax for anchored paths has been implemented.
143       Dave has recently voiced the same concerns that I had when I did
144       this, so there should be some support.  My take is that eventually
145       I will let support for the current syntax (where anchors are
146       "implicit") fade out in favor of the new, explicit syntax.
147       In order to be backward-compatible, both old and new syntax are
148       currently supported.
149    
150       Again, see the CM manual for details.
151    
152    3. Parallel make is trying to be slightly smarter:  When the master
153       process finds a "bottleneck", i.e., when there is only one
154       compilation unit that can be compiled and everybody else is
155       waiting on it, then it will simply compile it directly instead
156       of clumsily telling one of the slaves to do it.
157    
158    4. Support for "unsharing" added.  This is necessary in order to be
159       able to have two different versions of the same library running
160       at the same time (e.g., for trying out a new MLRISC while still
161       having the old MLRISC linked into the current compiler, etc.)
162       See the CM manual.
163    
164    5. Simple "makedepend" functionality added for generating Makefile
165       dependency information.  (This is rather crude at the moment.
166       Expect some changes here in the future.)
167    
168    6. ".fun" added as a recognized suffix for ML files. Also documented
169       explicitly in the manual that the fallback behavior (unknown suffix
170       -> ML file) is not an official feature!
171    
172    7. Small changes to the pickler for stable libraries.
173    
174    8. Several internal changes to CM (for cleanup/improvement).
175    
176    
177    !!!! NEW BINFILES !!!!

182    Tag: blume-20000428-pathconfig
183    Description:
184    
185    1. I changed config/install.sh to remove duplicate entries from the
186       lib/pathconfig file at the end.  Moreover, the final version of
187       lib/pathconfig is sorted alphabetically.  The same (sorting) is done
188       in src/system/installml.
189    
190    2. The config/install.sh script now consistently uses relative
191       pathnames in lib/pathconfig whenever the anchor is in the lib
192       directory.  (So far this was true for the libraries that come
193       pre-compiled and bundled as part of the bootfiles but not for
194       libraries that are compiled by the script itself.)

208    Description:
209    
210    1. Alpha
211    
212        PSEUDOARITH was missing in AlphaRewrite.  This causes an endless loop
213    in C--.
214    
215    2. RA
216    
217       Added a flag "ra-dump-size" to print out the size of the flowgraph
218       and the interference graph.

232    Tag: leunga-20000420-ssa-c---stuff
233    Description:
234    
235      This update synchronizes my repository with Yale's.  Most of these
236    changes, however, do not affect SML/NJ at all (the RA is an exception).
237    
238    1. Register Allocator
239    
240       a. An improvement in the interference graph construction:
241          Given a copy
242    
243                s <- t
244    
245          no interference edge between s and t is added for this definition of s.
246    
247       b. I've added two new spill heuristic modules that Fermin and I developed
248          (in the new library RA.cm). These are unused in SML/NJ but maybe
249          useful for others (Moby?)
250    
251    2. X86
252    
253       a. Various fixes in the backend provided by Fermin [C--] and Lal.
254    
255    3. Alpha
256    
257       a. Added the BSR instruction and code generation that goes with it [C--]
258       b. Other fixes too numerous to recount provided by Fermin [C--]
259    
260    4. Regmaps
261    
262       a. The regmaps are not initialized with the identity physical bindings
263          at creation time.  This is unneeded.
264    
265    5. MLRISC Optimizations
266    
267       a. The DJ-Graph module can now compute the iterated dominance frontiers
268          intersects with liveness incrementally in linear time! Woohoo!
269          This is now used in my new SSA construction algorithm.
270    
271       b. THe branch reorganization module is now smarter about linear chains of
272          basic blocks.

351    Description:
352    
353    1.  Fixed a problem in X86 assembly.
354    
355        Things like
356    
357           jmp %eax
358           jmp (%eax)
359    
360        should be output as
361    
362           jmp *%eax
363           jmp *(%eax)
364    
365    2.  Assembly output
366    
367          Added a new flag
368    
369              "asm-indent-copies" (default to false)
370    
371          When this flag is on, parallel copies will be indented an extra level.

376    Tag: leunga-20000404-C--Moby
377    Description:
378    
379        All of these fixes are related to C--, Moby, and my own optimization
380        stuff; so they shouldn't affect SML/NJ.
381    
382    1.  X86
383    
384        Various fixes related floating point, and extensions.
385    
386    2.  Alpha
387    
388        Some extra patterns related to loads with signed/zero extension
389        provided by Fermin.
390    
391    3.  Assembly
392    
393        When generating assemby, resolve the value of client defined constants,
394        instead of generating symbolic values.  This is controlled by the
395        new flag "asm-resolve-constants", which is default to true.
396    
397    4.  Machine Descriptions
398    
399        a. The precedence parser was slightly broken when parsing infixr symbols.
400        b. The type generalizing code had the bound variables reversed, resulting
401           in a problem during arity raising.
402        c. Various fixes in machine descriptions.

407    Tag: blume_main_v110p26p2_2
408    Description:
409    
410    I eliminated coreEnv from compInfo.  Access to the "Core" structure is
411    now done via the ordinary static environment that is context to each
412    compilation unit.
413    
414    To this end, I arranged that instead of "structure Core" as "structure
415    _Core" is bound in the pervasive environment.  Core access is done via
416    _Core (which can never be accidentially rebound because _Core is not a
417    legal surface-syntax symbol).
418    
419    The current solution is much cleaner because the core environment is
420    now simply part of the pervasive environment which is part of every
421    compilation unit's context anyway.  In particular, this eliminates all
422    special-case handling that was necessary until now in order to deal
423    with dynamic and symbolic parts of the core environment.
424    
425    Remaining hackery (to bind the "magic" symbol _Core) is localized in the
426    compilation mananger's bootstrap compiler (actually: in the "init group"
427    handling).  See the comments in src/system/smlnj/init/init.cmi for
428    more details.
429    
430    I also tried to track down all mentions of "Core" (as string argument
431    to Symbol.strSymbol) in the compiler and replaced them with a
432    reference to the new CoreSym.coreSym.  Seems cleaner since the actual
433    name appears in one place only.
434    
435    Binfile and bootfile format have not changed, but the switchover from
436    the old "init.cmi" to the new one is a bit tricky, so I supplied new
437    bootfiles anyway.

453    Description:
454    
455    This update contains a rewritten (and hopefully more correct) module
456    for extracting aliasing information from CPS.
457    
458       To turn on this feature:
459    
460            Compiler.Control.CG.memDisambiguate := true
461    
462       To pretty print the region information with assembly
463    
464           Compiler.Control.MLRISC.getFlag "asm-show-region" := true;
465    
466       To control how many levels of aliasing information are printed, use:
467    
468           Compiler.Control.MLRISC.getInt "points-to-show-level" := n
469    
470       The default of n is 3.
