27    Description:
28    
29    Drastically improved link traversal code for the case that the dynamic
30    value was already loaded at bootstrap time.  As a result, CM and CMB
31    now both load blazingly fast -- even on a very slow machine.  Also,
32    memory consumption has been further reduced by this.
33    
34    Warning: The format of the PIDMAP file has changed.  THerefore, to
35    bootstrap you have to do this:
36    
37    1. Run CMB.make
38    2. Make a symbolic link for the boot directory:
39         ln -s sml.boot.ARCH-OS xxx
40    3. "Rebuild" the boot directory:
41         ./makeml -boot xxx -rebuild sml ; rm xxx
42    4. Boot normally:
43          ./makeml

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

69    Description:
70    
71    1. Eliminated comp-lib.cm
72    2. Made pickle-lib.cm
73    3. Eliminated all uses of intset.sml (from comp-lib.cm)
74    4. Replaced all uses of intmap.{sig,sml} (from comp-lib.cm) with
75       equivalent constructs from smlnj-lib.cm (INtHashTable).
76    5. Point 4. also goes for those uses of intmap.* in MLRISC.
77       Duplicated intmap modules thrown out.
78    6. Hunted down all duplicated SCC code and replaced it with
79       equivalent stuff (GraphSCCFn from smlnj-lib.cm).
80    7. Rewrote Feedback module.
81    8. Moved sortedlist.sml into viscomp-lib.cm.  Eventually it
82       should be thrown out and equivalent modules from smlnj-lib.cm
83       should be used (IntRedBlackSet, IntListSet, ...).
84    
85    Confirmed that compiler compiles to fixpoint.

90    Tag: leunga-20001110-new-x86-fp
91    
92    A new x86 floating point code generator has been added.
93    By default this is turned off.  To turn this on, do:
94    
95        CM.autoload "$smlnj/compiler.cm";
96        Compiler.Control.MLRISC.getFlag "x86-fast-fp" := true;
97    
98    Changes:
99    
100    1.  Changed FTAN to FPTAN so that the assembly output is correct.
101    2.  Changed the extension callback for FTANGENT to generate:
102    
103              fptan
104              fstp  %st(0)
105        instead of
106              fptan
107              fstpl ftempmem
108    
109    3.  Numerous assembly fixes for x86.
110    
111    5.  Cleaned up the machine code output module x86/x86MC.sml and added
112        support for a whole bunch of instructions and addressing modes:
113    
114          fadd/fsub/fsubr/fmul/fdiv/fdivr  %st, %st(n)
115          faddp/fsubp/fsubrp/fmulp/fdivp/fdivrp  %st, %st(n)
116          fadd/fsub/fsubr/fmul/fdiv/fdivr  %st(n), %st
117          fiadd/fisub/fisubr/fimul/fidiv/fidivr mem
118          fxch %st(n)
119          fld %st(n)
120          fst %st(n)
121          fst mem
122          fstp %st(n)
123          fucom %st(n)
124          fucomp %st(n)
125    
126        All these are now generated when the fast fp mode is turned on.
127    
128    6.  Removed the dedicated registers %st(0), ..., %st(7) from X86CpsRegs

134    Description:
135    
136    Eliminated some code duplication:
137    
138    1. Added "where" clause to GraphSCCFn in SML/NJ Library.
139       (Otherwise the functor is useless.)
140    2. Used GraphSCCFn where SCCUtilFun was used previously.
141    3. Got rid of SCCUtilFun (in comp-lib.cm).

238    
239      Moby, C--, SSA, x86, machine descriptions etc.  Should only affect C--
240    and Mobdy.
241    
242    1.  x86
243    
244       a.  Fixes to peephole module by John and Dan.
245       b.  Assembly fix to SETcc by Allen.
246       c.  Fix to c-call by John.
247       d.  Fix to spilling by John.  (This one deals with the missing FSTPT case)
248       e.  Instruction selection optimization to SETcc as suggested by John.
249    
250           For example,
251    
252            MV(32, x, COND(32, CMP(32, LT, a, b), LI 1, LI 0))
253    
254           should generate:
255    
256            MOVL a, x
257            SUBL b, x
258            SHRL 31, x
259    
260    2.  IR stuff
261    
262         A bunch of new DJ-graph related algorithms added.  These
263         speed up SSA construction.
264    
265    3.  SSA + Scheduling
266    
267         Added code for SSA and scheduling to the repository

283    Description:
284    
285    !!!! WARNING !!!!
286    You must recompile the runtime system!
287    !!!! WARNING !!!!
288    
289    This is basically another round of script-enhancements:
290    
291    1. sml, ml-build, and ml-makedepend accept options -D and -U to define
292       and undefine CM preprocessor symbols.
293    
294    2. ml-build avoids generating a new heap image if it finds that the
295       existing one is still ok.  (The condition is that no ML file had to
296       be recompiled and all ML files are found to be older that the heap
297       file.)
298    
299       To make this work smoothly, I also hacked the runtime system as
300       well as SMLofNJ.SysInfo to get access to the heap image suffix
301       (.sparc-solaris, ...) that is currently being used.
302    
303       Moreover, the signature of CM.mk_standalone has changed.  See the
304       CM manual.
305    
306    3. ml-makedepend accepts additional options -n, -a, and -o.  (See the
307       CM manual for details.)
308    
309    4. More CM manual updates:
310        - all of the above has been documented.
311        - there is now a section describing the (CM-related) command line
312          arguments that are accepted by the "sml" command

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

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

435    Description:
436    
437    Changes:
438    
439     1. Implemented "subdir" and "witness" options for noweb tool.
440        This caused some slight internal changes in CM's tool implementation.
441     2. Fixed bug in "tool plugin" mechanism.  This is essentially cleaning
442        some remaining issues from earlier path anchor changes.
443     3. Updated CM manual accordingly.
444    
445     4. Changed implementation of back-tracing so that I now consider it
446        ready for prime-time.
447    
448        In particular, you don't have to explicitly trigger the back-trace
449        anymore.  Instead, if you are running BTrace-instrumented code and
450        there is an uncaught exception (regardless of whether or not it was
451        raised in instrumented code), the top-level evalloop will print
452        the back-trace.
453    
454        Features:
455    
456          - Instrumented and uninstrumented code work together seemlessly.
457            (Of course, uninstrumented code is never mentioned in actual
458             back-traces.)
459    
460          - Asymptotic time- and space-complexity of instrumented code is
461            equal to that of uninstrumented code.  (This means that
462            tail-recursion is preserved by the instrumentation phase.)
463    
464          - Modules whose code has been instrumented in different sessions
465            work together without problem.
466    
467          - There is no penalty whatsoever on uninstrumented code.
468    
469          - There is no penalty on "raise" expressions, even in
470            instrumented code.
471    
472        A potential bug (or perhaps it is a feature, too):
473    
474          A back-trace reaches no further than the outermost instrumented
475          non-trivial "raise".  Here, a "trivial" raise is one that is the
476          sole RHS of a "handle" rule.  Thus, back-traces reach trough
477    
478               <exp> handle e => raise e
479    
480          and even
481    
482               <exp> handle Foo => raise Bar
483    
484          and, of course, through
485    
486               <exp> handle Foo => ...
487    
488         if the exception was not Foo.
489    
490         Back-traces always reach right through any un-instrumented code
491         including any of its "handle" expressions, trivial or not.
492    
493       To try this out, do the following:
494    
495         - Erase all existing binfiles for your program.
496           (You may keep binfiles for those modules where you think you
497            definitely don't need back-tracing.)
498         - Turn on back-trace instrumentation:
499              SMLofNJ.Internals.BTrace.mode (SOME true);
500         - Recompile your program.  (I.e., run "CM.make" or "use".)
501         - You may now turn instrumentation off again (if you want):
502              SMLofNJ.Internals.BTrace.mode (SOME false);
503         - Run your program as usual.  If it raises an exception that
504           reaches the interactive toplevel, then a back-trace will
505           automatically be printed.  After that, the toplevel loop
506           will print the exception history as usual.
