100 : allenleung 1890 Name: Allen Leung (leunga (at) reservoir (dot) com)
101 :     Date: 2006/02/22 15:07:00 EST
102 :     Tag: leunga-20060222-mdl-gen
103 :     Description:
104 :    
105 :     CM has changed. Updated the script for rebuilding the MLRISC generated
106 :     files.
107 :    
108 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
109 : mblume 1886 Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
110 :     Date: 2006/02/14 17:30:00 CST
111 :     Tag: blume-20060214-intel-mac
112 :     Description:
113 :    
114 :     Hooked code for Darwin-specific Intel ABI into main compiler.
115 :     (This is a temporary solution which relies on the fact that the
116 :     compiler itself does not use NLFFI. Eventually we need to divorce
117 :     intel mac from generic x86 unix code and make separate sets of binaries.)
118 :    
119 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
120 : jhr 1882 Name: John Reppy (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
121 : jhr 1885 Date: 2006/02/13
122 :     Tag: jhr-20060213-intel-mac
123 :     Description:
124 :     Changed MLRISC x86 CCalls for partial support of MacOS X ABI.
125 :    
126 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
127 :     Name: John Reppy (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
128 : jhr 1882 Date: 2006/02/06
129 :     Tag: jhr-20060206-intel-mac
130 :     Description:
131 :     Changes to support MacOS X on Intel hardware. The C-calls support in
132 :     MLRISC must also be updated to support the MacOS X ABI.
133 :    
134 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
135 : mblume 1863 Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
136 : mblume 1879 Date: 2005/12/16 00:15:00 CST
137 :     Tag: blume-20051216-cm
138 :     Description:
139 :    
140 :     Improved error reporting and handling in CM.
141 :    
142 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
143 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
144 : mblume 1878 Date: 2005/11/21 14:00:00 CST
145 :     Tag: blume-20051121-html-lib
146 :     Description:
147 :    
148 :     Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work. This is fixed
149 :     now. (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
150 :     at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
151 :     be referred to by another name. In 110.57 this would be
152 :     $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm. I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
153 :     to be valid as well.)
154 :    
155 :     Thanks to Todd Wilson (Fresno) for alerting me to this issue.

158 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
159 : mblume 1874 Date: 2005/11/19 13:45:00 CST
160 :     Tag: Release_110_57
161 :     Description:
162 :    
163 :     Moved release tag for 110.57.
164 :    
165 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
166 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
167 : mblume 1873 Date: 2005/11/19 23:35:00 CST
168 :     Tag: blume-20051119-fish
169 :     Description:
170 :    
171 :     Fixed a problem in config/install.sh where it tries to "fish" the
172 :     name of the CM metadata directory from the wrong place (because
173 :     the physical location of basis.cm has changed). Also, corrected the
174 :     path anchor for $/html-lib.cm. (Thanks to M. Fluet for pointing out
175 :     these problems.)

180 : mblume 1874 Tag: blume-orig-110_57
181 : mblume 1867 Description:
182 :    
183 :     New working version (110.57). NEW BOOTFILES!
184 :    
185 : mblume 1874 UPDATE: The release tag has been moved to include a fix for a brown-paper-
186 :     bag glitch (see above).
187 :    
188 : mblume 1867 ----------------------------------------------------------------------
189 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
190 : mblume 1866 Date: 2005/11/16 10:25:00 CST
191 :     Tag: blume-22051116-btrace
192 :     Description:
193 :    
194 :     Fixed problem with bogus exception message when using back-trace
195 :     facility.
196 :    
197 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
198 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
199 : mblume 1865 Date: 2005/11/15 22:35:00 CST
200 :     Tag: blume-22051115-array2copy
201 :     Description:
202 :    
203 :     Added simple implementation of Array2.copy. (Warning: mostly untested.)
204 :    
205 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
206 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
207 : mblume 1864 Date: 2005/11/15 21:35:00 CST
208 :     Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
209 :     Description:
210 :    
211 :     Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm. This
212 :     file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
213 :     run of CMB.make. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
214 :     it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
215 :     $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
216 :     the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
217 :     might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
218 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
219 :     compiler itself uses.)
220 :    
221 :     Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
222 :     bindings in config/extrapathconfig.
223 :    
224 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
225 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
226 : mblume 1863 Date: 2005/11/15 16:35:00 CST
227 :     Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
228 :     Description:
229 :    
230 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
231 :     the system:
232 :    
233 :     $/basis.cm
234 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
235 :     $/pp-lib.cm
236 :     $/controls-lib.cm
237 :     $/html-lib.cm
238 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
239 :    
240 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
241 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
242 :    
243 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
244 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
245 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
246 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
247 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
248 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
249 :    
250 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
251 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
252 :     their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above). In other
253 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
254 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
255 :    
256 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
257 :     MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
258 :     cleanup on this code.
259 :    
260 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
261 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
262 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

426 :     Added support scripts for Mac OS X PackageMaker and modified
427 :     config/install.sh so that it supports re-dumping a heap image
428 :     after customization.

441 :     Tag: blume-20050516-redump-heap
442 :     Description:
443 :    
444 :     Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
445 :     after configuration variables have been changed.
446 :    
447 :     CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
448 :    
449 :     This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
450 :     heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
451 :     restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
452 :     CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
453 :     Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
454 :    
455 :     Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
456 :     the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
457 :     the heap image generation code in the boot code.

467 :     as specified with respect to the interaction of radix and prefix.

573 :     Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
574 :     Description:
575 :    
576 :     Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility. This is
577 :     tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
578 :     It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
579 :    
580 :     - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
581 :    
582 :     To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
583 :     config/targets prior to installation. (Notice that this is different
584 :     from "heap2exec" mentioned below. Not a typo.)
585 :    
586 :     To perform an actual test, run the command
587 :    
588 :     $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
589 :    
590 :     (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
591 :    
592 :     For example, run
593 :    
594 :     $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
595 :    
596 :     This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
597 :     then invoke directly as a command.

623 :     data structure access seems to work.)
624 :    
625 :     * Fixed CM's incorrect assumption that the PPC is little-endian.

742 :     Tag: blume-20041124-position
743 :     Description:
744 :    
745 :     The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
746 :     equal to Int64. The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
747 :     for the time being.
748 :    
749 :     To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
750 :    
751 :     1. Start sml
752 :     2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
753 :     3. Type
754 :     #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
755 :     4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
756 :    
757 :     This is barely tested. The only test so far was a little SML program
758 :     counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
759 :     reading it character-by-character. That test was successful.
760 :    
761 :     In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
762 :     added to the runtime system.

807 :    
808 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
809 :     translated. In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
810 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
811 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are
812 :     the new int64 and word64 types.

843 :     Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
844 :     seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
845 :     I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
846 :     at the moment.
847 :    
848 :     Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64. But
849 :     this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
850 :     go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
851 :     worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
852 :     simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

877 :    
878 :     New working version (110.50). NEW BOOTFILES!
879 :    
880 :     =====================
881 :    
882 :     Also:
883 :    
884 :     - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just
885 :     containing the URL string into a file containing
886 :     shell script code. The code has access to the $VERSION variable.
887 :     - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
888 :     - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
889 :     normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
890 :    
891 :     (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
892 :     config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

932 :     Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
933 :     Description:
934 :    
935 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
936 :     programs. Here is how it works:
937 :    
938 :     1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
939 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
940 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
941 :     main program could be modified from something like
942 :    
943 :     fun main (pgm, args) = ...
944 :    
945 :     to
946 :    
947 :     fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
948 :    
949 :     2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
950 :     library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
951 :     main function.
952 :    
953 :     3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
954 :     CM might have created in the past for your project).
955 :    
956 :     4. Build the system using this command line:
957 :    
958 :     ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
959 :     myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
960 :    
961 :     instead of the usual
962 :    
963 :     ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
964 :    
965 :     I changed a library name:
966 :    
967 :     $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
968 :    
969 :     New libraries:
970 :    
971 :     $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
972 :     -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
973 :     $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
974 :     -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

989 :     Tag: blume-20041015-coverage
990 :     Description:
991 :    
992 :     * Test coverage tool added!
993 :     * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
994 :    
995 :     - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
996 :     library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
997 :     - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
998 :     - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
999 :     - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
1000 :     - Coverage module is another such plugin
1001 :    
1002 :     To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
1003 :     question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on. This
1004 :     can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
1005 :     (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
1006 :    
1007 :     Plugins are selected at link time. (Pre-compiled instrumented code
1008 :     can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.) When an
1009 :     instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
1010 :     enabled will come into effect for that module.
1011 :    
1012 :     To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
1013 :     and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
1014 :     To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
1015 :     Coverage.install().
1016 :    
1017 :     Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
1018 :     when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
1019 :    
1020 :     Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
1021 :     explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

1139 :     Description:
1140 :    
1141 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
1142 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
1143 :     generated automagically.
1144 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
1145 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
1146 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
1147 :    
1148 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
1149 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
1150 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
1151 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
1152 :    
1153 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
1154 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
1155 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
1156 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
1157 :    
1158 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.

1172 :     Tag: blume-20040927-controls
1173 :     Description:
1174 :    
1175 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
1176 :    
1177 :     1. val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
1178 :    
1179 :     grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
1180 :     in stage 2.
1181 :    
1182 :     2. val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
1183 :    
1184 :     stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
1185 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
1186 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
1187 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
1188 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
1189 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
1190 :    
1191 :     Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
1192 :     "lazysml":
1193 :     - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
1194 :     old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
1195 :     - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
1196 :     (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

1201 :     Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
1202 :     Description:
1203 :    
1204 :     Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest. The only
1205 :     difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
1206 :     set to true. A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
1207 :     by a file name suffix of ".lml".
1208 :    
1209 :     In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
1210 :     supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect. As a
1211 :     result, the following three lines are equivalent:
1212 :    
1213 :     foo.sml : lazysml
1214 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
1215 :     foo.sml (lazy)
1216 :    
1217 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
1218 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
1219 :     after compilation, respectively.
1220 :    
1221 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
1222 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
1223 :     "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "lazy"
1224 :     apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
1225 :     the general mechanism.)
1226 :    
1227 :     The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
1228 :     There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
1229 :    
1230 :     foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
1231 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
1232 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
1233 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
1234 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
1235 :    
1236 :     etc.
1237 :    
1238 :     Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
1239 :     if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
1240 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
1241 :    
1242 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
1243 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
1244 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
1245 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

1597 :     Description:
1598 :    
1599 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
1600 :     recent Basis spec.
1601 :    
1602 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
1603 :    
1604 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
1605 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
1606 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
1607 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
1608 :    
1609 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
1610 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
1611 :     stream in proc after all...
1612 :    
1613 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
1614 :    
1615 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
1616 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
1617 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
1618 :     file descriptors directly.
1619 :    
1620 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
1621 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
1622 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

1636 :     Description:
1637 :    
1638 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
1639 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
1640 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
1641 : mblume 1505 "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
1642 : mblume 1498 library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
1643 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
1644 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
1645 :     library.
1646 :    
1647 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
1648 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
1649 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
1650 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
1651 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
1652 :     cause real problems.

1660 :     Made the win32 version work again. (Strangely, a misplaced comma had
1661 :     slipped into win32-process.c which prevented the runtime from being
1662 :     compiled correctly.)
1663 :    
1664 :     Also, included a minor addition to ml-build.bat analogous to what was
1665 :     done in blume-20040519-ml-build.

1671 :     Description:
1672 :    
1673 :     Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
1674 :     The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
1675 :     CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it. It now
1676 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
1677 :    
1678 :     This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the
1679 :     metadata directory (default: .cm) is actually configurable at
1680 :     installation time.

1695 :     Description:
1696 :    
1697 :     Added previously missing support for many socket-related functions
1698 :     under win32. Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
1699 :     for the voluminous patch!
1700 :    
1701 :     (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
1702 :    
1703 : mblume 1490 Here is David's e-mail:
1704 :    
1705 :     Hi,
1706 :    
1707 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
1708 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
1709 :    
1710 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
1711 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
1712 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
1713 :     110.45 installation.
1714 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
1715 :    
1716 :     The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
1717 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
1718 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
1719 :     are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
1720 :    
1721 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
1722 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
1723 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
1724 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
1725 :     that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
1726 :     familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
1727 :    
1728 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
1729 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
1730 :     of these functions is
1731 :    
1732 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
1733 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
1734 :    
1735 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
1736 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
1737 :     report an error upwards.
1738 :    
1739 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
1740 :     the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
1741 :     Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
1742 :     when the process finishes.
1743 :    
1744 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
1745 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
1746 :    
1747 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
1748 :    
1749 :     We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
1750 :     with it. I hope this contribution will help you.
1751 :    
1752 :     Keep up the good work!
1753 :

1829 :     Description:
1830 :    
1831 :     Fixed the runtime so that ml-nlffi-lib runs on the cygwin version
1832 :     of SML/NJ. The problem is that
1833 :    
1834 :     lib = dlopen(NULL, ...)
1835 :     f = dlsym(lib, "malloc");
1836 :    
1837 :     does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
1838 :     such as 'malloc' during linking. We fixed this by explicitly
1839 :     exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
1840 :    
1841 :     -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
1842 :    
1843 :     where cygwin.def is a file containing all the symbols that
1844 :     we wish to export.
1845 :    
1846 :     I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
1847 :     do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
1848 :     we build the native win32 version with the system
1849 :     calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

1975 :     Description:
1976 :    
1977 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
1978 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
1979 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
1980 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
1981 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
1982 :    
1983 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
1984 :     implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
1985 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
1986 :    
1987 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
1988 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
1989 : mblume 1394 be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
1990 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
1991 : mblume 1393 "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
1992 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
1993 :     names in the current environment.)

1999 :     Description:
2000 :    
2001 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
2002 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
2003 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
2004 :    
2005 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
2006 :    
2007 :     and everything happens automagically.
2008 :    
2009 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
2010 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
2011 :     and BINDIR.

2013 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
2014 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
2015 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

2032 :     Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
2033 :     Description:
2034 :    
2035 :     1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
2036 :     This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
2037 :     that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
2038 :     blocking or non-blocking. This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
2039 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
2040 :    
2041 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
2042 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
2043 :     between Unix and Win32.
2044 :    
2045 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
2046 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
2047 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
2048 :    
2049 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
2050 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
2051 :     of CML.
2052 :    
2053 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

2071 :    
2072 :     1. new-install.sh -> install.sh
2073 :     2. changed default CM "metadata" directory name to ".cm" (instead of "CM")
2074 :     3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen
2075 :     at install time (by setting the CM_DIR_ARC environment variable

2094 :     Description:
2095 :    
2096 :     1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as
2097 :     this seems to be controversial at the moment) and used those in
2098 :     Posix.ProcEnv.times.
2099 :    
2100 :     2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
2101 :    
2102 :     3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.
2103 :     For example, fromLargeInt never needs to look at more than 3 "big
2104 :     digits" to get its 53 bits of precision.

2110 :     Description:
2111 :    
2112 :     Added an entry to the primitive environment
2113 :     (compiler/Semant/statenv/prim.sml) for int32->real64 conversion and
2114 :     added code to compiler/CodeGen/main/mlriscGen.sml to implement it.
2115 :    
2116 :     Removed some of the "magic" constants in real64.sml and replaced them
2117 :     with code that generates these values from their corresponding
2118 :     integer counterparts.
2119 :    
2120 :     Made all(?) the slice-related changes to the Basis and made everything
2121 :     compile again...

2165 :     Tag: blume-20030909-installer
2166 :     Description:
2167 :    
2168 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
2169 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
2170 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
2171 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
2172 :     independent.)
2173 :    
2174 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
2175 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
2176 :    
2177 :     Other changes:
2178 :    
2179 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
2180 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
2181 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
2182 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
2183 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
2184 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
2185 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
2186 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
2187 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

2193 :     Description:
2194 :    
2195 :     Made Win32 version of OS.FileSys.fullPath return current directory
2196 :     when given an empty string. This is what the spec says, and incidentally,
2197 :     CM depends on it. (CM otherwise goes into an infinite loop in certain
2198 :     cases when presented with the name of a non-existing .cm file.)

2203 : mblume 1352 Tag: blume-20030905-slices-etc
2204 : mblume 1350 Description:
2205 :    
2206 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
2207 :     (draft) Basis spec.
2208 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
2209 :     Basis spec.
2210 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
2211 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
2212 :     match the new signatures.)
2213 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
2214 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
2215 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
2216 :     appropriate.
2217 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
2218 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
2219 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
2220 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
2221 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
2222 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
2223 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
2224 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
2225 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
2226 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
2227 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
2228 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
2229 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
2230 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
2231 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
2232 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
2233 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
2234 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
2235 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
2236 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
2237 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
2238 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
2239 :     ArraySlice).

2244 :     Tag: blume-20030828-intinf
2245 :     Description:
2246 :    
2247 :     This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
2248 :     (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
2249 :     and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
2250 :    
2251 :     There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
2252 :     the system:
2253 :    
2254 :     Basis:
2255 :     - Implemented IntInf.
2256 :     - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
2257 : mblume 1348 - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
2258 : mblume 1347 - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
2259 :    
2260 :     compiler:
2261 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
2262 :     - literals
2263 :     - pattern matching
2264 :     - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
2265 :     - overloading on literals and operations
2266 :    
2267 :     This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
2268 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
2269 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
2270 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
2271 :    
2272 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
2273 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
2274 :     is the right thing to do there).
2275 :    
2276 :     * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
2277 :    
2278 :     * A word about conversion primops:
2279 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
2280 : mblume 1348 CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
2281 : mblume 1347 Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
2282 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
2283 : mblume 1348 to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
2284 : mblume 1347 for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
2285 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
2286 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
2287 : mblume 1348 eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
2288 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
2289 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
2290 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
2291 : mblume 1347
2292 :     interactive system:
2293 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
2294 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
2295 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
2296 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
2297 :     use of library functionality.
2298 :    
2299 :     CM:
2300 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
2301 :     are no longer silent.
2302 :    
2303 :     CKIT:
2304 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
2305 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
2306 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
2307 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
2308 :     FixedInt.
2309 :    
2310 :     Throughout the code:
2311 : mblume 1348 Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
2312 : mblume 1347 (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

2331 :     Tag: blume-20030811-windows
2332 :     Description:
2333 :    
2334 :     Version number bumped to 110.42.9. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
2335 :    
2336 :     http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
2337 :    
2338 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a
2339 :     number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
2340 :     unnoticed until now:
2341 :    
2342 :     - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
2343 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
2344 :    
2345 :     - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
2346 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
2347 :    
2348 :     - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly. The main
2349 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
2350 :     using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
2351 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
2352 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
2353 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
2354 :    
2355 :     - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
2356 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
2357 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
2358 :    
2359 :     - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
2360 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
2361 :    
2362 :     standard!
2363 :    
2364 :     into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
2365 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
2366 :    
2367 :     native!
2368 :    
2369 :     switches back to native style. This was needed so that
2370 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
2371 :    
2372 :     - Runtime system:
2373 :    
2374 :     - win32-filesys.c: get_file_time and set_file_time now
2375 :     access modification time, not creation time.
2376 :    
2377 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
2378 :    
2379 :     - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
2380 :    
2381 :     - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
2382 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
2383 :    
2384 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
2385 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
2386 :    
2387 :     .bat scripts:
2388 :    
2389 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
2390 :    
2391 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
2392 :     applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
2393 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
2394 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
2395 :     that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
2396 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
2397 :     Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
2398 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
2399 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
2400 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
2401 :     It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc. No other
2402 :     libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
2403 :     are part of the compiler.)
2404 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
2405 :    
2406 :     Unrelated bug fixes:
2407 :    
2408 :     - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
2409 :     types.
2410 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
2411 :     otherwise.)

2450 :     1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
2451 :    
2452 :     This mainly affects the quality of error messages. However, some
2453 :     of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
2454 :     the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
2455 :     the "macro-expansion" that was going on before. Plus, the mach-
2456 :     compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
2457 :     if-expression.)
2458 :    
2459 :     2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
2460 :     interactive loop.

2466 :     Description:
2467 :    
2468 :     Ported the runtime system to cygwin, which uses the unix
2469 :     x86-unix bin files. Missing/buggy features:
2470 :    
2471 :     o getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr: these functions seem to be missing in
2472 :     the Cygwin library.
2473 :     o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
2474 :     o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.
2475 :    
2476 :     A new set of binfiles is located at:
2477 :    
2478 :     http://www.dorsai.org/~leunga/boot.x86-unix.tgz
2479 :    
2480 :     This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.
2481 :     Other x86 versions can use the existing binfiles.

2509 :     sent the RA into an infinite loop when floating point registers get
2510 :     spilled. (Because of this bug, e.g., nucleic stopped compiling between
2511 :     110.37 and 110.38.)
2512 :     There was another set of potential problems related to the handling of
2513 :     MLRISC annotations (but those did not yet cause real problems, apparently).

2637 :     Another small change is that ppDec tries to give more information

2639 :     broken in some mysterious way if the functor's body's signature
2640 :     has not been declared by ascription but gets inferred from the

2741 :    
2742 :     0. John Reppy made several modifications to the SML/NJ library.
2743 :     In particular, there is a shiny new controls-lib.cm.
2744 :    
2745 :     1. Pushed new controls interface through compiler so that everything
2746 :     compiles again.
2747 :    
2748 :     2. Added FormatComb and FORMAT_COMB to the CML version of the
2749 :     SML/NJ library (so that CML compiles again).
2750 :    
2751 :     3. Modified init scripts because XXX_DEFAULT environment variables
2752 :     are no longer with us. (Boot-time initialization is now done
2753 :     using the same environment variables that are also used for
2754 :     startup-time initialization of controls.)

2760 :     Description:
2761 :    
2762 :     All pseudo-ops emitted before the first segment declaration
2763 :     such as TEXT, DATA, and BSS directives are assumed to be global
2764 :     declarations and are emitted first in the assembly file. This is
2765 :     useful in a number of situations where one has pseudo-ops that are not
2766 :     specific to any segment, and also works around the constraint that one
2767 :     cannot have client pseudo-ops in the TEXT segment.
2768 :    
2769 :     Because no segment is associated with these declarations it is
2770 :     an error to allocate any space or objects before the first segment
2771 :     directive and an exception will be raised. However, we cannot make
2772 :     this check for client pseudo-ops.
2773 :    
2774 :     These top level declarations are a field in the CFG graph_info.
2775 :     In theory you can continue to add to this field after the CFG has been
2776 :     built -- provided you know what you are doing;-)

2799 :     Description:
2800 :    
2801 :     Applied the following bugfix provided by Emden Gansner:
2802 :    
2803 :     Output is corrupted when outputSubstr is used rather than output.
2804 :    
2805 :     The problem occurs when a substring
2806 :    
2807 :     ss = (s, dataStart, dataLen)
2808 :    
2809 :     where dataStart > 0, fills a stream buffer with avail bytes left.
2810 :     avail bytes of s, starting at index dataStart, are copied into the
2811 :     buffer, the buffer is flushed, and then the remaining dataLen-avail
2812 :     bytes of ss are copied into the beginning of the buffer. Instead of
2813 :     starting this copy at index dataStart+avail in s, the current code
2814 :     starts the copy at index avail.
2815 :    
2816 :     Fix:
2817 :     In text-io-fn.sml, change line 695 from
2818 :     val needsFlush = copyVec(v, avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)
2819 :     to
2820 :     val needsFlush = copyVec(v, dataStart+avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)

2836 :     Description:
2837 :    
2838 :     Added full support for div/mod/rem/quot on the x86, using the machine
2839 :     instruction's two results (without clumsily recomputing the remainder)
2840 :     directly where appropriate.
2841 :    
2842 :     Some more extensive power-of-two support was added to the x86 instruction
2843 :     selector (avoiding expensive divs, mods, and muls where they can be
2844 :     replaced with cheaper shifts and masks). However, this sort of thing
2845 :     ought to be done earlier, e.g., within the CPS optimizer so that
2846 :     all architectures benefit from it.
2847 :    
2848 :     The compiler compiles to a fixed point, but changes might be somewhat
2849 :     fragile nevertheless. Please, report any strange things that you might
2850 :     see wrt. div/mod/quot/rem...

2860 :     Fast paths (quotient > 0 or remainder = 0) are not affected, though.
2861 :     The problem was with quotient = 0, because that alone does not tell
2862 :     us which way the rounding went. One then has to look at whether
2863 :     remainder and divisor have the same sign... :(
2864 :

2872 :    
2873 :     NEW BOOTFILES!!! Version number bumped to 110.39.3.
2874 :    
2875 :     Primops have changed. This means that the bin/boot-file formats have
2876 :     changed as well.
2877 :    
2878 :     To make sure that there is no confusion, I made a new version.
2879 :    
2880 :    
2881 :     CHANGES:
2882 :    
2883 :     * removed REMT from mltree (remainder should never overflow).
2884 :    
2885 :     * added primops to deal with divisions of all flavors to the frontend
2886 :    
2887 :     * handled these primops all the way through so they map to their respective
2888 :     MLRISC support
2889 :    
2890 :     * used these primops in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32
2891 :    
2892 :     * removed INLDIV, INLMOD, and INLREM as they are no longer necessary
2893 :    
2894 :     * parameterized INLMIN, INLMAX, and INLABS by a numkind
2895 :    
2896 :     * translate.sml now deals with all flavors of INL{MIN,MAX,ABS}, including
2897 :     floating point
2898 :    
2899 :     * used INL{MIN,MAX,ABS} in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32,
2900 :     and Real (but Real.abs maps to a separate floating-point-only primop)
2901 :    
2902 :    
2903 :     TODO items:
2904 :    
2905 :     * Hacked Alpha32 instruction selection, disabling the selection of REMx
2906 :     instructions because the machine instruction encoder cannot handle
2907 :     them. (Hppa, PPC, and Sparc instruction selection did not handle
2908 :     REM in the first place, and REM is supported by the x86 machine coder.)
2909 :    
2910 :     * Handle DIV and MOD with DIV_TO_NEGINF directly in the x86 instruction
2911 :     selection phase. (The two can be streamlined because the hardware
2912 :     delivers both quotient and remainder at the same time anyway.)
2913 :    
2914 :     * Think about what to do with "valOf(Int32.minInt) div ~1" and friends.
2915 :     (Currently the behavior is inconsistent both across architectures and
2916 :     wrt. the draft Basis spec.)
2917 :    
2918 :     * Word8 should eventually be handled natively, too.
2919 :    
2920 :     * There seems to be one serious bug in mltree-gen.sml. It appears, though,
2921 :     as if there currently is no execution path that could trigger it in
2922 :     SML/NJ. (The assumptions underlying functions arith and promotable do not
2923 :     hold for things like multiplication and division.)

2928 :     Tag: blume-20020327-mlrisc-divisions
2929 :     Description:
2930 :    
2931 :     Added support for all four division operations (ML's div, mod, quot,
2932 :     and rem) to MLRISC. In the course of doing so, I also rationalized
2933 :     the naming (no more annoying switch-around of DIV and QUOT), by
2934 :     parameterizing the operation by div_rounding_mode (which can be either
2935 :     DIV_TO_ZERO or DIV_TO_NEGINF).
2936 :    
2937 :     The generic MLTreeGen functor takes care of compiling all four
2938 :     operations down to only round-to-zero div.
2939 :    
2940 :     Missing pieces:
2941 :    
2942 :     * Doing something smarter than relying on MLTreeGen on architectures
2943 :     like, e.g., the x86 where hardware division delivers both quotient and
2944 :     remainder at the same time. With this, the implementation of the
2945 :     round-to-neginf operations could be further streamlined.
2946 :    
2947 :     * Remove inlining support for div/mod/rem from the frontend and replace it
2948 :     with primops that get carried through to the backend. Do this for all
2949 :     int and word types.

2954 :     Tag: blume-20020325-divmod
2955 :     Description:
2956 :    
2957 :     I improved (hopefully without breaking them) the implementation of Int.div,
2958 :     Int.mod, and Int.rem. For this, the code in translate.sml now takes
2959 :     advantage of the following observations:
2960 :    
2961 :     Let q = x quot y r = x rem y
2962 :     d = x div y m = x mod y
2963 :    
2964 :     where "quot" is the round-to-zero version of integer division that
2965 :     hardware usually provides. Then we have:
2966 :    
2967 :     r = x - q * y where neither the * nor the - will overflow
2968 :     d = if q >= 0 orelse x = q * y then q else q - 1
2969 :     where neither the * nor the - will overflow
2970 :     m = if q >= 0 orelse r = 0 then r else r + y
2971 :     where the + will not overflow
2972 :    
2973 :     This results in substantial simplification of the generated code.
2974 :     The following table shows the number of CFG nodes and edges generated
2975 :     for
2976 :     fun f (x, y) = x OPER y
2977 :     (* with OPER \in div, mod, quot, rem *)
2978 :    
2979 :    
2980 :     OPER | nodes(old) | edges(old) | nodes(new) | edges(new)
2981 :     --------------------------------------------------------
2982 :     div | 24 | 39 | 12 | 16
2983 :     mod | 41 | 71 | 12 | 16
2984 :     quot | 8 | 10 | 8 | 10
2985 :     rem | 10 | 14 | 8 | 10

3018 :     Description:
3019 :    
3020 :     1. Changes to FLINT primops:
3021 :    
3022 :     (* make a call to a C-function;
3023 :     * The primop carries C function prototype information and specifies
3024 :     * which of its (ML-) arguments are floating point. C prototype
3025 :     * information is for use by the backend, ML information is for
3026 :     * use by the CPS converter. *)
3027 :     | RAW_CCALL of { c_proto: CTypes.c_proto,
3028 :     ml_args: ccall_type list,
3029 :     ml_res_opt: ccall_type option,
3030 :     reentrant : bool
3031 :     } option
3032 :     (* Allocate uninitialized storage on the heap.
3033 :     * The record is meant to hold short-lived C objects, i.e., they
3034 :     * are not ML pointers. With the tag, the representation is
3035 :     * the same as RECORD with tag tag_raw32 (sz=4), or tag_fblock (sz=8)
3036 :     *)
3037 :     | RAW_RECORD of {tag:bool,sz:int}
3038 :     and ccall_type = CCALL_INT32 | CCALL_REAL64 | CCALL_ML_PTR
3039 :    
3040 :     2. These CPS primops are now overloaded:
3041 :    
3042 :     rawload of {kind:numkind}
3043 :     rawstore of {kind:numkind}
3044 :    
3045 :     The one argument form is:
3046 :    
3047 :     rawload {kind} address
3048 :    
3049 :     The two argument form is:
3050 :    
3051 :     rawload {kind} [ml object, byte-offset]
3052 :    
3053 :     3. RAW_CCALL/RCC now takes two extra arguments:
3054 :    
3055 :     a. The first is whether the C call is reentrant, i.e., whether
3056 :     ML state should be saved and restored.
3057 :     b. The second argument is a string argument specifying the name of
3058 :     library and the C function.
3059 :    
3060 :     These things are currently not handled in the code generator, yet.
3061 :    
3062 :     4. In CProto,
3063 :    
3064 :     An encoding type of "bool" means "ml object" and is mapped into
3065 :     C prototype of PTR. Note that "bool" is different than "string",
3066 :     even though "string" is also mapped into PTR, because "bool"
3067 :     is assigned an CPS type of BOGt, while "string" is assigned INT32t.
3068 :    
3069 :     5. Pickler/unpicker
3070 :    
3071 :     Changed to handle RAW_RECORD and newest RAW_CCALL
3072 :    
3073 :     6. MLRiscGen,
3074 :    
3075 :     1. Changed to handle the new rawload/rawstore/rawrecord operators.
3076 :     2. Code for handling C Calls has been moved to a new module CPSCCalls,
3077 :     in the file CodeGen/cpscompile/cps-c-calls.sml
3078 :    
3079 :     7. Added the conditional move operator
3080 :    
3081 :     condmove of branch
3082 :    
3083 :     to cps. Generation of this is still buggy so it is currently
3084 :     disabled.

3090 : george 1168 Description:
3091 :    
3092 : george 1171 Implemented the Ball-Larus branch prediction-heuristics, and
3093 : george 1168 incorporated graphical viewers for control flow graphs.
3094 :    
3095 : george 1171 Ball-Larus Heuristics:
3096 : george 1168 ---------------------
3097 :     See the file compiler/CodeGen/cpscompile/cpsBranchProb.sml.
3098 :    
3099 :     By design it uses the Dempster-Shafer theory for combining
3100 :     probabilities. For example, in the function:
3101 :    
3102 :     fun f(n,acc) = if n = 0 then acc else f(n-1, n*acc)
3103 :    
3104 :     the ball-larus heuristics predicts that the n=0 is unlikely
3105 :     (OH-heuristic), and the 'then' branch is unlikely because of the
3106 :     RH-heuristic -- giving the 'then' branch an even lower combined
3107 : george 1171 probability using the Dempster-Shafer theory.
3108 : george 1168
3109 :     Finally, John Reppy's loop analysis in MLRISC, further lowers the
3110 :     probability of the 'then' branch because of the loop in the else
3111 :     branch.
3112 :    
3113 :    
3114 :     Graphical Viewing:
3115 :     ------------------
3116 :     I merely plugged in Allen's graphical viewers into the compiler. The
3117 :     additional code is not much. At the top level, saying:
3118 :    
3119 :     Control.MLRISC.getFlag "cfg-graphical-view" := true;
3120 :    
3121 :     will display the graphical view of the control flow graph just before
3122 :     back-patching. daVinci must be in your path for this to work. If
3123 :     daVinci is not available, then the default viewer can be changed
3124 :     using:
3125 :    
3126 :     Control.MLRISC.getString "viewer"
3127 :    
3128 :     which can be set to "dot" or "vcg" for the corresponding viewers. Of
3129 :     course, these viewers must be in your path.
3130 :    
3131 :     The above will display the compilation unit at the level of clusters,
3132 :     many of which are small, boring, and un-interesting. Also setting:
3133 :    
3134 :     Control.MLRISC.getInt "cfg-graphical-view_size"
3135 :    
3136 :     will display clusters that are larger than the value set by the above.
3137 :

3160 :     Description:
3161 :    
3162 :     1. Recoded the buggy parts of x86-fp.
3163 :    
3164 :     a. All the block reordering code has been removed.
3165 :     We now depend on the block placement phases to do this work.
3166 :    
3167 :     b. Critical edge splitting code has been simplified and moved into the
3168 :     CFG modules, as where they belong.
3169 :    
3170 :     Both of these were quite buggy and complex. The code is now much, much
3171 :     simpler.
3172 :    
3173 :     2. X86 backend.
3174 :    
3175 :     a. Added instructions for 64-bit support. Instruction selection for
3176 :     64-bit has not been committed, however, since that
3177 :     requires changes to MLTREE which haven't been approved by
3178 :     Lal and John.
3179 :    
3180 :     b. Added support for FUCOMI and FUCOMIP when generating code for
3181 :     PentiumPro and above. We only generate these instructions in
3182 :     the fast-fp mode.
3183 :    
3184 :     c. Added cases for JP and JNP in X86FreqProps.
3185 :    
3186 :     3. CFG
3187 :    
3188 :     CFG now has a bunch of methods for edge splitting and merging.
3189 :    
3190 :     4. Machine description.
3191 :    
3192 :     John's simplification of MLTREE_BASIS.fcond broke a few machine
3193 :     description things:
3194 :    
3195 :     rtl-build.{sig,sml} and hppa.mdl fixed.
3196 :    
3197 :     NOTE: the machine description stuff in the repository is still broken.
3198 :     Again, I can't put my fixes in because that involves
3199 :     changes to MLTREE.

3217 :     Description:
3218 :    
3219 :     Added a structure C.W and functions convert/Ptr.convert to ml-nlffi-lib.
3220 :    
3221 :     This implements a generic mechanism for changing constness qualifiers
3222 :     anywhere within big C types without resorting to outright "casts".
3223 :     (So far, functions such as C.rw/C.ro or C.Ptr.rw/C.Ptr.ro only let you
3224 :     modify the constness at the outermost level.)
3225 :     The implementation of "convert" is based on the idea of "witness"
3226 :     values -- values that are not used by the operation but whose types
3227 :     "testify" to their applicability. On the implementation side, "convert"
3228 :     is simply a projection (returning its second curried argument). With
3229 :     cross-module inlining, it should not result in any machine code being

3255 :     ---------
3256 :    
3257 :     1. Factored out the recently-added Controls : CONTROLS stuff and put
3258 :     it into its own library $/controls-lib.cm. The source tree for
3259 :     this is under src/smlnj-lib/Controls.
3260 :    
3261 :     2. Changed the names of types and functions in this interface, so they
3262 :     make a bit more "sense":
3263 :    
3264 :     module -> registry
3265 :     'a registry -> 'a group
3266 :    
3267 :     3. The interface now deals in ref cells only. The getter/setter interface
3268 :     is (mostly) gone.
3269 :    
3270 :     4. Added a function that lets one register an already-existing ref cell.
3271 :    
3272 :     5. Made the corresponding modifications to the rest of the code so that
3273 :     everything compiles again.
3274 :    
3275 :     6. Changed the implementation of Controls.MLRISC back to something closer
3276 :     to the original. In particular, this module (and therefore MLRISC)
3277 :     does not depend on Controls. There now is some link-time code in
3278 :     int-sys.sml that registers the MLRISC controls with the Controls
3279 :     module.
3280 :    
3281 :     CM:
3282 :     ---
3283 :    
3284 :     * One can now specify the lambda-split aggressiveness in init.cmi.

3307 :     translate the pseudo fp instruction. This only happened with unary fp
3308 :     operators in certain situations.

3336 :     Tag: blume-20020312-version110392
3337 :     Description:
3338 :    
3339 :     Yet another version number bump (because of small changes to the
3340 :     binfile format). Version number is now 110.39.2. NEW BOOTFILES!
3341 :    
3342 :     Changes:
3343 :    
3344 :     The new pid generation scheme described a few weeks ago was overly
3345 :     complicated. I implemented a new mechanism that is simpler and
3346 :     provides a bit more "stability": Once CM has seen a compilation
3347 :     unit, it keeps its identity constant (as long as you do not delete
3348 :     those crucial CM/GUID/* files). This means that when you change
3349 : blume 1145 an interface, compile, then go back to the old interface, and
3350 : blume 1137 compile again, you arrive at the original pid.
3351 :    
3352 :     There now also is a mechanism that instructs CM to use the plain
3353 :     environment hash as a module's pid (effectively making its GUID
3354 :     the empty string). For this, "noguid" must be specified as an
3355 :     option to the .sml file in question within its .cm file.
3356 :     This is most useful for code that is being generated by tools such
3357 :     as ml-nlffigen (because during development programmers tend to
3358 :     erase the tool's entire output directory tree including CM's cached
3359 :     GUIDs). "noguid" is somewhat dangerous (since it can be used to locally
3360 :     revert to the old, broken behavior of SML/NJ, but in specific cases
3361 :     where there is no danger of interface confusion, its use is ok
3362 :     (I think).
3363 :    
3364 :     ml-nlffigen by default generates "noguid" annotations. They can be
3365 :     turned off by specifying -guid in its command line.

3380 :     Description:
3381 :    
3382 :     Tested the jump chain elimination on all architectures (except the
3383 :     hppa). This is on by default right now and is profitable for the
3384 :     alpha and x86, however, it may not be profitable for the sparc and ppc
3385 :     when compiling the compiler.
3386 :    
3387 :     The gc test will typically jump to a label at the end of the cluster,
3388 :     where there is another jump to an external cluster containing the actual
3389 :     code to invoke gc. This is to allow factoring of common gc invocation
3390 :     sequences. That is to say, we generate:
3391 :    
3392 :     f:
3393 :     testgc
3394 :     ja L1 % jump if above to L1
3395 :    
3396 :     L1:
3397 :     jmp L2
3398 :    
3399 :    
3400 :     After jump chain elimination the 'ja L1' instructions is converted to
3401 :     'ja L2'. On the sparc and ppc, many of the 'ja L2' instructions may end
3402 :     up being implemented in their long form (if L2 is far away) using:
3403 :    
3404 :     jbe L3 % jump if below or equal to L3
3405 :     jmp L2
3406 :     L3:
3407 :     ...
3408 :    
3409 :    
3410 :     For large compilation units L2 may be far away.

3449 :    
3450 :     - Added the notion of an entrypoint to CodeObj.

3453 :     - Use the address of the label of the first function given to mlriscGen
3454 :     as the entrypoint. This address is currently always 0, but it will
3455 :     not be 0 once we turn on block placement.

3474 :     Tag: blume-20020307-controls
3475 :     Description:
3476 :    
3477 :     This is a very large but mostly boring patch which makes (almost)
3478 :     every tuneable compiler knob (i.e., pretty much everything under
3479 :     Control.* plus a few other things) configurable via both the command
3480 :     line and environment variables in the style CM did its configuration
3481 :     until now.
3482 :    
3483 :     Try starting sml with '-h' (or, if you are brave, '-H')
3484 :    
3485 :     To this end, I added a structure Controls : CONTROLS to smlnj-lib.cm which
3486 :     implements the underlying generic mechanism.
3487 :    
3488 :     The interface to some of the existing such facilities has changed somewhat.
3489 :     For example, the MLRiscControl module now provides mkFoo instead of getFoo.
3490 :     (The getFoo interface is still there for backward-compatibility, but its
3491 :     use is deprecated.)
3492 :    
3493 :     The ml-build script passes -Cxxx=yyy command-line arguments through so
3494 :     that one can now twiddle the compiler settings when using this "batch"
3495 :     compiler.
3496 :    
3497 :     TODO items:
3498 :    
3499 :     We should go through and throw out all controls that are no longer
3500 :     connected to anything. Moreover, we should go through and provide
3501 :     meaningful (and correct!) documentation strings for those controls
3502 :     that still are connected.
3503 :    
3504 :     Currently, multiple calls to Controls.new are accepted (only the first
3505 :     has any effect). Eventually we should make sure that every control
3506 :     is being made (via Controls.new) exactly once. Future access can then
3507 :     be done using Controls.acc.
3508 :    
3509 :     Finally, it would probably be a good idea to use the getter-setter
3510 :     interface to controls rather than ref cells. For the time being, both
3511 :     styles are provided by the Controls module, but getter-setter pairs are
3512 :     better if thread-safety is of any concern because they can be wrapped.
3513 :    
3514 :     *****************************************
3515 :    
3516 :     One bug fix: The function blockPlacement in three of the MLRISC
3517 :     backpatch files used to be hard-wired to one of two possibilities at
3518 :     link time (according to the value of the placementFlag). But (I
3519 :     think) it should rather sense the flag every time.
3520 :    
3521 :     *****************************************
3522 :    
3523 :     Other assorted changes (by other people who did not supply a HISTORY entry):
3524 :    
3525 :     1. the cross-module inliner now works much better (Monnier)
3526 :     2. representation of weights, frequencies, and probabilities in MLRISC
3527 :     changed in preparation of using those for weighted block placement

3537 :     Changes were required in the machine properties to correctly
3538 :     categorize trap instructions. There is an MLRISC flag
3539 :     "weighted-block-placement" that can be used to enable weighted block
3540 :     placement, but this will be ineffective without block/edge

3547 :     Tag: george-20020305-linkage-cluster
3548 :    
3549 : george 1124 In order to support the block placement optimization, a new cluster
3550 :     is generated as the very first cluster (called the linkage cluster).
3551 :     It contains a single jump to the 'real' entry point for the compilation
3552 :     unit. Block placement has no effect on the linkage cluster itself, but
3553 :     all the other clusters have full freedom in the manner in which they
3554 :     reorder blocks or functions.
3555 : george 1116
3556 :     On the x86 the typical linkage code that is generated is:
3557 :     ----------------------
3558 :     .align 2
3559 :     L0:
3560 :     addl $L1-L0, 72(%esp)
3561 : george 1124 jmp L1
3562 : george 1116
3563 :    
3564 :     .align 2
3565 :     L1:
3566 :     ----------------------
3567 :    
3568 :     72(%esp) is the memory location for the stdlink register. This
3569 :     must contain the address of the CPS function being called. In the
3570 : george 1124 above example, it contains the address of L0; before
3571 : george 1116 calling L1 (the real entry point for the compilation unit), it
3572 :     must contain the address for L1, and hence
3573 :    
3574 :     addl $L1-L0, 72(%esp)
3575 :    
3576 : george 1124 I have tested this on all architectures except the hppa.The increase
3577 :     in code size is of course negligible

3600 :     Description:
3601 :    
3602 :     1. Fixed a minor bug in CM's "noweb" tool:
3603 :     If numbering is turned off, then truly don't number (i.e., do not
3604 :     supply the -L option to noweb). The previous behavior was to supply
3605 :     -L'' -- which caused noweb to use the "default" line numbering scheme.
3606 :     Thanks to Chris Richards for pointing this out (and supplying the fix).
3607 :    
3608 :     2. Once again, I reworked some aspects of the FFI:
3609 :    
3610 :     A. The incomplete/complete type business:
3611 :    
3612 :     - Signatures POINTER_TO_INCOMPLETE_TYPE and accompanying functors are
3613 :     gone!
3614 :     - ML types representing an incomplete type are now *equal* to
3615 :     ML types representing their corresponding complete types (just like
3616 :     in C). This is still safe because ml-nlffigen will not generate
3617 :     RTTI for incomplete types, nor will it generate functions that
3618 :     require access to such RTTI. But when ML code generated from both
3619 :     incomplete and complete versions of the C type meet, the ML types
3620 :     are trivially interoperable.
3621 :    
3622 :     NOTE: These changes restore the full generality of the translation
3623 :     (which was previously lost when I eliminated functorization)!
3624 :    
3625 :     B. Enum types:
3626 :    
3627 :     - Structure C now has a type constructor "enum" that is similar to
3628 :     how the "su" constructor works. However, "enum" is not a phantom
3629 :     type because each "T enum" has values (and is isomorphic to
3630 :     MLRep.Signed.int).
3631 :     - There are generic access operations for enum objects (using
3632 :     MLRep.Signed.int).
3633 :     - ml-nlffigen will generate a structure E_foo for each "enum foo".
3634 :     * The structure contains the definition of type "mlrep" (the ML-side
3635 :     representation type of the enum). Normally, mlrep is the same
3636 :     as "MLRep.Signed.int", but if ml-nlffigen was invoked with "-ec",
3637 :     then mlrep will be defined as a datatype -- thus facilitating
3638 :     pattern matching on mlrep values.
3639 :     ("-ec" will be suppressed if there are duplicate values in an
3640 :     enumeration.)
3641 :     * Constructors ("-ec") or values (no "-ec") e_xxx of type mlrep
3642 :     will be generated for each C enum constant xxx.
3643 :     * Conversion functions m2i and i2m convert between mlrep and
3644 :     MLRep.Signed.int. (Without "-ec", these functions are identities.)
3645 :     * Coversion functions c and ml convert between mlrep and "tag enum".
3646 :     * Access functions (get/set) fetch and store mlrep values.
3647 :     - By default (unless ml-nlffigen was invoked with "-nocollect"), unnamed
3648 :     enumerations are merged into one single enumeration represented by
3649 :     structure E_'.

3711 :     smaller when compiled, and substantially faster
3712 :     (O(n log n) time and O(n) space). Timing of the new spill module:
3713 :    
3714 :     4000 CPS 100 spill 0.02u 0.00s 0.00g
3715 :     MLRISC ra 0.25u 0.02s 0.15g
3716 :     (spills=1 reloads=3)
3717 :     TOTAL 7.74u 0.34s 1.62g
3718 :    
3719 :     Implementation details:
3720 :    
3721 :     As far as I can tell, the purpose of the CPS spill module is to make sure the
3722 :     number of live variables at any program point (the bandwidth)
3723 :     does not exceed a certain limit, which is determined by the
3724 :     size of the spill area.
3725 :    
3726 :     When the bandwidth is too large, we decrease the register pressure by
3727 :     packing live variables into spill records. How we achieve this is
3728 :     completely different than what we did in the old code.
3729 :    
3730 :     First, there is something about the MLRiscGen code generator
3731 :     that we should be aware of:
3732 :    
3733 :     o MLRiscGen performs code motion!
3734 :    
3735 :     In particular, it will move floating point computations and
3736 :     address computations involving only the heap pointer to
3737 :     their use sites (if there is only a single use).
3738 :     What this means is that if we have a CPS record construction
3739 :     statement
3740 :    
3741 :     RECORD(k,vl,w,e)
3742 :    
3743 :     we should never count the new record address w as live if w
3744 :     has only one use (which is often the case).
3745 :    
3746 :     We should do something similar to floating point, but the transformation
3747 :     there is much more complex, so I won't deal with that.
3748 :    
3749 :     Secondly, there are now two new cps primops at our disposal:
3750 :    
3751 :     1. rawrecord of record_kind option
3752 :     This pure operator allocates some uninitialized storage from the heap.
3753 :     There are two forms:
3754 :    
3755 :     rawrecord NONE [INT n] allocates a tagless record of length n
3756 :     rawrecord (SOME rk) [INT n] allocates a tagged record of length n
3757 :     and initializes the tag.
3758 :    
3759 :     2. rawupdate of cty
3760 :     rawupdate cty (v,i,x)
3761 :     Assigns to x to the ith component of record v.
3762 :     The storelist is not updated.
3763 :    
3764 :     We use these new primops for both spilling and increment record construction.
3765 :    
3766 :     1. Spilling.
3767 :    
3768 :     This is implemented with a linear scan algorithm (but generalized
3769 :     to trees). The algorithm will create a single spill record at the
3770 :     beginning of the cps function and use rawupdate to spill to it,
3771 :     and SELECT or SELp to reload from it. So both spills and reloads
3772 :     are fine-grain operations. In contrast, in the old algorithm
3773 :     "spills" have to be bundled together in records.
3774 :    
3775 :     Ideally, we should sink the spill record construction to where
3776 :     it is needed. We can even split the spill record into multiple ones
3777 :     at the places where they are needed. But CPS is not a good
3778 :     representation for global code motion, so I'll keep it simple and
3779 :     am not attempting this.
3780 :    
3781 :     2. Incremental record construction (aka record splitting).
3782 :    
3783 :     Long records with many component values which are simulatenously live
3784 :     (recall that single use record addresses are not considered to
3785 :     be live) are constructed with rawrecord and rawupdate.
3786 :     We allocate space on the heap with rawrecord first, then gradually
3787 :     fill it in with rawupdate. This is the technique suggested to me
3788 :     by Matthias.
3789 :    
3790 :     Some restrictions on when this is applicable:
3791 :     1. It is not a VECTOR record. The code generator currently does not handle
3792 :     this case. VECTOR record uses double indirection like arrays.
3793 :     2. All the record component values are defined in the same "basic block"
3794 :     as the record constructor. This is to prevent speculative
3795 :     record construction.

3831 :     Tag: blume-20020219-cmffi
3832 :     Description:
3833 :    
3834 :     A wild mix of changes, some minor, some major:
3835 :    
3836 :     * All C FFI-related libraries are now anchored under $c:
3837 :     $/c.cm --> $c/c.cm
3838 :     $/c-int.cm --> $c/internals/c-int.cm
3839 :     $/memory.cm --> $c/memory/memory.cm
3840 :    
3841 :     * "make" tool (in CM) now treats its argument pathname slightly
3842 :     differently:
3843 :     1. If the native expansion is an absolute name, then before invoking
3844 :     the "make" command on it, CM will apply OS.Path.mkRelative
3845 :     (with relativeTo = OS.FileSys.getDir()) to it.
3846 :     2. The argument will be passed through to subsequent phases of CM
3847 :     processing without "going native". In particular, if the argument
3848 :     was an anchored path, then "make" will not lose track of that anchor.
3849 :    
3850 :     * Compiler backends now "know" their respective C calling conventions
3851 :     instead of having to be told about it by ml-nlffigen. This relieves
3852 :     ml-nlffigen from one of its burdens.
3853 :    
3854 :     * The X86Backend has been split into X86CCallBackend and X86StdCallBackend.
3855 :    
3856 :     * Export C_DEBUG and C_Debug from $c/c.cm.
3857 :    
3858 :     * C type encoding in ml-nlffi-lib has been improved to model the conceptual
3859 :     subtyping relationship between incomplete pointers and their complete
3860 :     counterparts. For this, ('t, 'c) ptr has been changed to 'o ptr --
3861 :     with the convention of instantiating 'o with ('t, 'c) obj whenever
3862 :     the pointer target type is complete. In the incomplete case, 'o
3863 :     will be instantiated with some "'c iobj" -- a type obtained by
3864 :     using one of the functors PointerToIncompleteType or PointerToCompleteType.
3865 :    
3866 :     Operations that work on both incomplete and complete pointer types are
3867 :     typed as taking an 'o ptr while operations that require the target to
3868 :     be known are typed as taking some ('t, 'c) obj ptr.
3869 :    
3870 :     voidptr is now a bit "more concrete", namely "type voidptr = void ptr'"
3871 :     where void is an eqtype without any values. This makes it possible
3872 :     to work on voidptr values using functions meant to operate on light
3873 :     incomplete pointers.
3874 :    
3875 :     * As a result of the above, signature POINTER_TO_INCOMPLETE_TYPE has
3876 :     been vastly simplified.

3948 :     Description:
3949 :    
3950 :     Fixed the MLRISC bug sent by Markus Wenzel regarding the compilation
3951 :     of Isabelle on the x86.
3952 :    
3953 :     From Allen:
3954 :     -----------
3955 :     I've found the problem:
3956 :    
3957 :     in ra-core.sml, I use the counter "blocked" to keep track of the
3958 :     true number of elements in the freeze queue. When the counter goes
3959 :     to zero, I skip examining the queue. But I've messed up the
3960 :     bookkeeping in combine():
3961 :    
3962 :     else ();
3963 :     case !ucol of
3964 :     PSEUDO => (if !cntv > 0 then
3965 :     (if !cntu > 0 then blocked := !blocked - 1 else ();
3966 :     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
3967 :     moveu := mergeMoveList(!movev, !moveu)
3968 :     )
3969 :     else ();
3970 :    
3971 :     combine() is called to coalesce two nodes u and v.
3972 :     I think I was thinking that if the move counts of u and v are both
3973 :     greater than zero then after they are coalesced then one node is
3974 :     removed from the freeze queue. Apparently I was thinking that
3975 :     both u and v are of low degree, but that's clearly not necessarily true.
3976 :    
3977 :    
3978 :     02/12/2002:
3979 :     Here's the patch. HOL now compiles.
3980 :    
3981 :     I don't know how this impact on performance (compile
3982 :     time or runtime). This bug caused the RA (especially on the x86)
3983 :     to go thru the potential spill phase when there are still nodes on the
3984 :     freeze queue.

4015 :    
4016 :     - better internal datastructures (resulting in slight speedup)
4017 :     - "-match" option requires exact match
4018 :     - "localized" gensym counters (untagged structs/unions nested within

4056 :    
4057 :     0. Version number has been bumped to 110.38.1. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
4058 :    
4059 :     1. The installer (config/install.sh) has gotten smarter:
4060 :    
4061 :     - Configuration options are a bit easier to specify now
4062 :     (in config/targets).
4063 :     - Bug in recognizing .tar.bz2 files fixed.
4064 :     - Installer automatically resolves dependencies between
4065 :     configuration options (e.g., if you ask for eXene, you will
4066 :     also get cml -- regardless whether you asked for it or not).
4067 :     - Installer can run in "quieter mode" by setting the environment
4068 :     variable INSTALL_QUIETLY to "true". "Quieter" does not mean
4069 :     "completely silent", though.
4070 :     - Build HashCons library as part of smlnj-lib.
4071 :    
4072 :     2. A new scheme for assigning persistent identifiers to compilation
4073 :     units (and, by extension, to types etc.) has been put into place.
4074 :     This fixes a long-standing bug where types and even dynamic values
4075 :     can get internally confused, thereby compromising type safety
4076 :     (abstraction) and dynamic correctness. See
4077 :    
4078 :     http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/who/blume/pid-confusion.tgz
4079 :    
4080 :     for an example of how things could go wrong until now.
4081 :    
4082 :     The downside of the new scheme is that pids are not quite as
4083 :     persistent as they used to be: CM will generate a fresh pid
4084 :     for every compilation unit that it thinks it sees for the first
4085 :     time. That means that if you compile starting from a clean, fresh
4086 :     source tree at two different times, you end up with different
4087 :     binaries.
4088 :    
4089 :     Cutoff recompilation, however, has not been compromised because
4090 :     CM keeps pid information in special caches between runs.

4148 :     Description:
4149 :    
4150 :     - Added somewhat detailed installation instructions (file INSTALL).
4151 :     - Fixed curl-detection bug in config/install.sh.
4152 :     - It is now possible to select the URL getter using the URLGETTER
4153 :     environment variable:
4154 :    
4155 :     not set / "unknown" --> automatic detection (script tries wget,
4156 :     curl, and lynx)
4157 :     "wget" / "curl" / "lynx" --> use the specified program (script "knows"
4158 :     how to properly invoke them)
4159 :     other --> use $URLGETTER directly, it must take
4160 :     precisely two command-line arguments
4161 :     (source URL and destination file name)
