19    Description:
20    
21    Drastically improved link traversal code for the case that the dynamic
22    value was already loaded at bootstrap time.  As a result, CM and CMB
23    now both load blazingly fast -- even on a very slow machine.  Also,
24    memory consumption has been further reduced by this.
25    
26    Warning: The format of the PIDMAP file has changed.  THerefore, to
27    bootstrap you have to do this:
28    
29    1. Run CMB.make
30    2. Make a symbolic link for the boot directory:
31         ln -s sml.boot.ARCH-OS xxx
32    3. "Rebuild" the boot directory:
33         ./makeml -boot xxx -rebuild sml ; rm xxx
34    4. Boot normally:
35          ./makeml

51    
52    Some hacking to make autoloading faster.  Success for CMB, no success
53    so far for CM.  There is a reduced structure CM' that autoloads faster.
54    (This is a temporary, non-documented hack to be eliminated again when
55    the general problem is solved.)

61    Description:
62    
63    1. Eliminated comp-lib.cm
64    2. Made pickle-lib.cm
65    3. Eliminated all uses of intset.sml (from comp-lib.cm)
66    4. Replaced all uses of intmap.{sig,sml} (from comp-lib.cm) with
67       equivalent constructs from smlnj-lib.cm (INtHashTable).
68    5. Point 4. also goes for those uses of intmap.* in MLRISC.
69       Duplicated intmap modules thrown out.
70    6. Hunted down all duplicated SCC code and replaced it with
71       equivalent stuff (GraphSCCFn from smlnj-lib.cm).
72    7. Rewrote Feedback module.
73    8. Moved sortedlist.sml into viscomp-lib.cm.  Eventually it
74       should be thrown out and equivalent modules from smlnj-lib.cm
75       should be used (IntRedBlackSet, IntListSet, ...).
76    
77    Confirmed that compiler compiles to fixpoint.

82    Tag: leunga-20001110-new-x86-fp
83    
84    A new x86 floating point code generator has been added.
85    By default this is turned off.  To turn this on, do:
86    
87        CM.autoload "$smlnj/compiler.cm";
88        Compiler.Control.MLRISC.getFlag "x86-fast-fp" := true;
89    
90    Changes:
91    
92    1.  Changed FTAN to FPTAN so that the assembly output is correct.
93    2.  Changed the extension callback for FTANGENT to generate:
94    
95              fptan
96              fstp  %st(0)
97        instead of
98              fptan
99              fstpl ftempmem
100    
101    3.  Numerous assembly fixes for x86.
102    
103    5.  Cleaned up the machine code output module x86/x86MC.sml and added
104        support for a whole bunch of instructions and addressing modes:
105    
106          fadd/fsub/fsubr/fmul/fdiv/fdivr  %st, %st(n)
107          faddp/fsubp/fsubrp/fmulp/fdivp/fdivrp  %st, %st(n)
108          fadd/fsub/fsubr/fmul/fdiv/fdivr  %st(n), %st
109          fiadd/fisub/fisubr/fimul/fidiv/fidivr mem
110          fxch %st(n)
111          fld %st(n)
112          fst %st(n)
113          fst mem
114          fstp %st(n)
115          fucom %st(n)
116          fucomp %st(n)
117    
118        All these are now generated when the fast fp mode is turned on.
119    
120    6.  Removed the dedicated registers %st(0), ..., %st(7) from X86CpsRegs

126    Description:
127    
128    Eliminated some code duplication:
129    
130    1. Added "where" clause to GraphSCCFn in SML/NJ Library.
131       (Otherwise the functor is useless.)
132    2. Used GraphSCCFn where SCCUtilFun was used previously.
133    3. Got rid of SCCUtilFun (in comp-lib.cm).

231      Moby, C--, SSA, x86, machine descriptions etc.  Should only affect C--
232    and Mobdy.
233    
234    1.  x86
235    
236       a.  Fixes to peephole module by John and Dan.
237       b.  Assembly fix to SETcc by Allen.
238       c.  Fix to c-call by John.
239       d.  Fix to spilling by John.  (This one deals with the missing FSTPT case)
240       e.  Instruction selection optimization to SETcc as suggested by John.
241    
242           For example,
243    
244            MV(32, x, COND(32, CMP(32, LT, a, b), LI 1, LI 0))
245    
246           should generate:
247    
248            MOVL a, x
249            SUBL b, x
250            SHRL 31, x
251    
252    2.  IR stuff
253    
254         A bunch of new DJ-graph related algorithms added.  These
255         speed up SSA construction.
256    
257    3.  SSA + Scheduling
258    
259         Added code for SSA and scheduling to the repository

275    Description:
276    
277    !!!! WARNING !!!!
278    You must recompile the runtime system!
279    !!!! WARNING !!!!
280    
281    This is basically another round of script-enhancements:
282    
283    1. sml, ml-build, and ml-makedepend accept options -D and -U to define
284       and undefine CM preprocessor symbols.
285    
286    2. ml-build avoids generating a new heap image if it finds that the
287       existing one is still ok.  (The condition is that no ML file had to
288       be recompiled and all ML files are found to be older that the heap
289       file.)
290    
291       To make this work smoothly, I also hacked the runtime system as
292       well as SMLofNJ.SysInfo to get access to the heap image suffix
293       (.sparc-solaris, ...) that is currently being used.
294    
295       Moreover, the signature of CM.mk_standalone has changed.  See the
296       CM manual.
297    
298    3. ml-makedepend accepts additional options -n, -a, and -o.  (See the
299       CM manual for details.)
300    
301    4. More CM manual updates:
302        - all of the above has been documented.
303        - there is now a section describing the (CM-related) command line
304          arguments that are accepted by the "sml" command

309    Tag: blume-20000725-makedepend
310    Description:
311    
312    Added a script called ml-makedepend.  This can be used in makefiles
313    for Unix' make in a way very similar to the "makedepend" command for
314    C.
315    
316    The script internally uses function CM.sources.
317    
318    Synopsis:
319    
320        ml-makedepend [-f makefile] cmfile targetname
321    
322    The default for the makefile is "makefile" (or "Makefile" should
323    "makefile" not exist).
324    
325    ml-makedepend adds a cmfile/targetname-specific section to this
326    makefile (after removing the previous version of this section).  The
327    section contains a single dependency specification with targetname on
328    the LHS (targetname is an arbitrary name), and a list of files derived
329    from the cmfile on the RHS.  Some of the files on the RHS are
330    ARCH/OPSYS-specific.  Therefore, ml-makedepend inserts references to
331    "make" variables $(ARCH) and $(OPSYS) in place of the corresponding
332    path names.  The makefile writer is responsible for making sure that
333    these variables have correct at the time "make" is invoked.

383    Description:
384    
385    1. Improvements to CM manual.
386    2. SMLofNJ.Internals.BTrace.trigger reinstated as an alternative way
387       of getting a back-trace.  The function, when called, raises an
388       internal exception which explicitly carries the full back-trace history,
389       so it is unaffected by any intervening handle-raise pairs ("trivial"
390       or not).  The interactive loop will print that history once it arrives
391       at top level.
392       Short of having all exceptions implicitly carry the full history, the
393       recommended way of using this facility is:
394         - compile your program with instrumentation "on"
395         - run it, when it raises an exception, look at the history
396         - if the history is "cut off" because of some handler, go and modify
397           your program so that it explicitly calls BTrace.trigger
398         - recompile (still instrumented), and rerun; look at the full history

427    Description:
428    
429    Changes:
430    
431     1. Implemented "subdir" and "witness" options for noweb tool.
432        This caused some slight internal changes in CM's tool implementation.
433     2. Fixed bug in "tool plugin" mechanism.  This is essentially cleaning
434        some remaining issues from earlier path anchor changes.
435     3. Updated CM manual accordingly.
436    
437     4. Changed implementation of back-tracing so that I now consider it
438        ready for prime-time.
439    
440        In particular, you don't have to explicitly trigger the back-trace
441        anymore.  Instead, if you are running BTrace-instrumented code and
442        there is an uncaught exception (regardless of whether or not it was
443        raised in instrumented code), the top-level evalloop will print
444        the back-trace.
445    
446        Features:
447    
448          - Instrumented and uninstrumented code work together seemlessly.
449            (Of course, uninstrumented code is never mentioned in actual
450             back-traces.)
451    
452          - Asymptotic time- and space-complexity of instrumented code is
453            equal to that of uninstrumented code.  (This means that
454            tail-recursion is preserved by the instrumentation phase.)
455    
456          - Modules whose code has been instrumented in different sessions
457            work together without problem.
458    
459          - There is no penalty whatsoever on uninstrumented code.
460    
461          - There is no penalty on "raise" expressions, even in
462            instrumented code.
463    
464        A potential bug (or perhaps it is a feature, too):
465    
466          A back-trace reaches no further than the outermost instrumented
467          non-trivial "raise".  Here, a "trivial" raise is one that is the
468          sole RHS of a "handle" rule.  Thus, back-traces reach trough
469    
470               <exp> handle e => raise e
471    
472          and even
473    
474               <exp> handle Foo => raise Bar
475    
476          and, of course, through
477    
478               <exp> handle Foo => ...
479    
480         if the exception was not Foo.

482         Back-traces always reach right through any un-instrumented code
483         including any of its "handle" expressions, trivial or not.
484    
485       To try this out, do the following:
486    
487         - Erase all existing binfiles for your program.
488           (You may keep binfiles for those modules where you think you
489            definitely don't need back-tracing.)
490         - Turn on back-trace instrumentation:
491              SMLofNJ.Internals.BTrace.mode (SOME true);
492         - Recompile your program.  (I.e., run "CM.make" or "use".)
493         - You may now turn instrumentation off again (if you want):
494              SMLofNJ.Internals.BTrace.mode (SOME false);
495         - Run your program as usual.  If it raises an exception that
496           reaches the interactive toplevel, then a back-trace will
497           automatically be printed.  After that, the toplevel loop
498           will print the exception history as usual.
