1 : blume 2237 This is the HISTORY file for the SML/NJ repository.
2 : dbm 570
3 :     An entry should be made for _every_ commit to the repository.
4 :     The entries in this file will be used when creating the README
5 :     for new versions, so keep that in mind when writing the
6 :     description.
7 :    
8 :     The form of an entry should be:

17 : blume 2578 Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
18 : blume 2589 Date: 2007/05/23 09:50:00 CDT
19 :     Description:
20 :    
21 :     Changed the installation mechanism for CM tool plugins. These are
22 :     just libaries and now get installed like ordinary libaries.
23 :    
24 :     There are now a number of new installation targets that give some
25 :     fine-grain control over what classes and suffixes are known, and what
26 :     they will map to.
27 :     See config/targets for details.
28 :    
29 :     The code that caused plugin installation as part of running a
30 :     tool's "build" script has been removed. (The build script is for
31 :     building, not for installing.)

35 : blume 2578 Date: 2007/05/22 11:50:00 CDT
36 :     Description:
37 :    
38 :     Added a boolean control named cm.tolerate-tool-failures (env. variable
39 :     name: CM_TOLERATE_TOOL_FAILURES). The default is false and makes
40 :     CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status. If
41 :     the control is set to true, then CM will press on after tool failures
42 :     in the event that the target files exist (even though they are
43 :     considered outdated). Turning the control to true can be useful for
44 :     bootstrapping.

48 :     Date: 2007/05/19
49 :     Description:
50 :    
51 :     Merge of ml-lpt revisions for 110.64.
52 :    
53 :     The name of several ml-lpt-lib modules has changed:
54 :     Repair => AntlrRepair
55 :     StreamPos => AntlrStreamPos
56 :     ErrHandlerFn => AntlrErrHandler
57 :     EBNF => AntlrEBNF
58 :    
59 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
60 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
61 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
62 :     extends the previous ones. This does not apply to %start or %name,
63 :     of course.
64 :    
65 :     Importing a grammar via %import now includes *all* declarations in from
66 :     the imported grammar, except for %name, %entry, and %start. Tokens
67 :     and nonterminals can be dropped using the new %dropping clause of the
68 :     %import directive; the separate %drop and %extend have been removed.
69 :    
70 :     We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the %nonterms
71 :     directive as in ml-yacc.
72 :    
73 :     The refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
74 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.
75 :    
76 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
77 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. Error repair for
78 :     generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
79 :     much faster and more accurate.
80 :    
81 :     ml-ulex is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
82 :     escape codes are now interpreted literally, so e.g. \| denotes "|").
83 :     Also, character classes may now include a "-" character at the beginning
84 :     as is standard in most other regexp tools.
85 :    
86 :     All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
87 :     been updated and improved with this merge.

90 : dbm 2492 Name: David MacQueen (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
91 :     Date: 2007/05/03
92 :     Revision: r2492
93 :     Description:
94 :    
95 :     Merge of the primop3 branch (base) into the trunk to create 110.63.1.
96 :     Significant changes in FLINT and the front end, mostly having to do
97 :     with a reorganized system for handling primops. Various bug fixes
98 :     and improvements in printing signatures.
99 :    
100 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
101 : adrassi 2551 Name: Aaron Turon (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~adrassi)
102 :     Date: 2007/05/02
103 :     Description:
104 :    
105 :     Preliminary commit of large ml-lpt revisions (more to come for 110.64).
106 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
107 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
108 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
109 :     extends the previous ones. Grammar extension constructs have also
110 :     changed. We now allow type annotations on nonterminals. Finally,
111 :     the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
112 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated. All of these
113 :     changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for ml-lpt.
114 :    
115 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
116 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. There has also been
117 :     some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this
118 :     will be further improved in 110.64.

122 : jhr 2450 Date: 2007/04/24
123 :     Description:
124 :    
125 :     More Basis fixes: The Char.fromString (etc.) functions did not handle
126 :     the "\uxxxx" escape sequence. There is still an outstanding bug with
127 :     String.fromString the tail is a format escape. I added a comment to
128 :     this effect in Basis/Implementation/string.sml.
129 :     Thanks to Andreas Rossberg.

149 :     Description:
150 :    
151 : jhr 2444 More Basis fixes: the OS.Path module did not include the InvalidArc

163 :     Name: Mike Rainey (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~mrainey)
164 : mrainey 2406 Date: 2007/04/12
165 :     Description:
166 :    
167 :     Substantially changed the signature and implementation of AMD64
168 :     SVID. It now looks similar to the ia32 SVID, yet uses staged
169 :     allocation.
170 :    
171 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
172 : jhr 2387 Name: John Reppy (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
173 :     Date: 2007/04/07
174 :     Description:
175 :    
176 :     More Basis fixes: the WORD signature was missing {to,from}Large.
177 :     Thanks to Andreas Rossberg.

182 :     Tag: release-110.63
183 :     Description:
184 :    
185 :     Bumped version number to 110.63.
186 :    
187 :     !!!NEW BOOTFILES!!!

190 : mrainey 2360 Name: Mike Rainey (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~mrainey)
191 :     Date: 2007/03/19
192 :     Description:
193 :    
194 :     Fixed bogus operand sizes in AMD64 instruction spilling.
195 :    
196 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
197 : jhr 2358 Name: John Reppy (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
198 :     Date: 2007/03/19
199 :     Description:
200 :    
201 :     Fixed a number of inconsistencies between the Posix.TTY structure
202 :     and the Basis specification. Thanks to Adam Chilpala.
203 :    
204 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
205 : mrainey 2345 Name: Mike Rainey (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~mrainey)
206 :     Date: 2007/02/26
207 :     Description:
208 :    
209 :     Added preliminary support in MLRISC for Staged Allocation, a technique
210 :     for specifying calling conventions (see
211 :     http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~nr/pubs/staged-abstract.html).
212 :     Initially, we plan to use this code to generate C calls for the AMD64.
213 :    
214 :     The staged allocation code base resides in MLRISC/staged-allocation,
215 :     and specialized calling conventions go in MLRISC/ARCH/staged-allocation.
216 :    
217 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
218 : jhr 2342 Name: John Reppy (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
219 :     Date: 2007/02/20
220 :     Description:
221 :    
222 :     Bug fix: when SaveCState was called with two values to save, a subsequent
223 :     GC could cause the RestoreCState to fail because the saved state had been
224 :     promoted to tagless pair.
225 :

227 : leunga 2340 Name: Allen Leung (leunga (at) reservoir (dot) com)
228 :     Date: 2007/02/20 19:08:00 EST
229 :     Description:
230 :    
231 :     Bug triggered by:
232 :    
233 :     val a1 = Word8Array.array(a1, 0w0);
234 :     val _ = Word8Array.update(a1, 0, 0w128);
235 :    
236 :     x86MCEmitter crashed when the immediate operand to MOVB was outside
237 :     of the range -128 ... 127. I've changed the code so that the range
238 :     check is disabled. Only the low order 8 bits of the immediate operand
239 : jhr 2342 are now significant.

244 : blume 2336 Date: 2007/02/15 09:20:00 CST
245 :     Description:
246 :    
247 :     Eliminated any mention of lexgen. (Lexgen was an early precursor
248 :     to ml-ulex.)
249 :    
250 :     You should update your admin directory, so the shell scripts for
251 :     maintaining your local copy of the repository reflect this change.

254 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
255 : blume 2333 Date: 2007/02/14 15:45:00 CST
256 :     Description:
257 :    
258 :     Fixed bug in CM's parallel make facility that failed to have
259 :     the master re-link modules after letting slaves compile them.
260 :

264 :     Description:
265 :    
266 :     Fixed typo in ml-build script that prevented library anchors
267 :     from being registered.

278 : adrassi 2296 Name: Aaron Turon (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~adrassi)
279 :     Date: 2007/01/31
280 :     Description:
281 :    
282 :     Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code. Many minor
283 :     improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes. Prepared
284 :     ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure. Changed
285 :     the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
286 :     stream creation from several kinds of sources). Overall, the
287 :     tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
288 :     change in a way that would break compatibility. More work,
289 :     however, is needed in the documentation.
290 :    
291 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
292 : blume 2277 Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
293 : blume 2298 Date: 2007/02/01 10:05:00 CST
294 :     Description:
295 :    
296 :     Implemented library installer. Moved CM plugin code for
297 :     ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
298 :     their respective trees. Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
299 :     and ml-antlr. Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
300 :     and ml-antlr.
301 :    
302 :     For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
303 :     CM tools. (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
304 :     there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
305 :     of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)
306 :    
307 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
308 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
309 : blume 2277 Date: 2007/01/30 11:05:00 CST
310 :     Description:
311 :    
312 :     Added SMLofNJ.shiftArgs which is like a shell's "shift" command.
313 :     Modified CM's startup code to use shiftArgs as it processes
314 :     command line arguments. This way, the init code in each .sml-file
315 :     or library that is mentioned at the top level will see only
316 :     those arguments that have not yet been processed at this point.
317 :     In other words, the init code can "seize control" and process the
318 :     remaining command line.

322 : jhr 2358 Date: 2007/01/30
323 :     Description:
324 :    
325 :     Added fromList function to the ORD_SET interface and lookup to the
326 :     ORD_MAP interface. See the SML/NJ Library CHANGES file for details.

329 :     Name: John Reppy (http://www.cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
330 : jhr 2269 Date: 2007/01/28
331 :     Description:
332 :    
333 :     Added the UTF8 structure and signature from the Moby compiler to
334 :     the SML/NJ library (and the CML library). These modules will replace
335 :     the version in the ml-lpt-lib.
336 :

373 :     Date: 2006/14/06 09:50:00 CST
374 :     Description:
375 :    
376 :     Fixed the code in runtime/c-libs/posix-tty/{tcgetattr,tcsetattr}.c to
377 :     get the c_cc termios data copied correctly. Also moved the allocation
378 :     of the string to avoid problems if it caused a GC.
379 :    
380 :     Thanks to Timothy Bourke for the bug report and fix.

383 : blume 2232 Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume)
384 :     Date: 2006/12/08 09:50:00 CST
385 :     Description:
386 :    
387 :     Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
388 :     causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
389 :     command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
390 :     as long as all target files exist.
391 :    
392 :     This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
393 :     svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
394 :     yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig. (Ml-yacc would
395 :     be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
396 :     available at that time.)

401 :     Description:
402 :    
403 :     Fixed the types of recvVecFrom, recvVecFrom', recvVecFromNB, and
404 :     recvVecFromNB' in the SOCKET signature. This error is actually
405 :     in the SML Basis specification too.

410 :     Description:
411 :    
412 :     CM now reports undefined anchors as errors and aborts execution
413 :     rather than silently pressing on using bogus values.

418 :     Description:
419 :    
420 :     Use Say.vsay for printing the "[autoloading]" message, so
421 :     #set CM.Control.verbose false (or -Ccm.verbose=false) can be used
422 :     to suppress them.

435 :     Tag: release-110.60
436 :     Description:
437 :    
438 :     New working release (110.60). NEW BOOTFILES!
439 :    
440 :     This is the first subversion-hosted release. There are also changes
441 :     to the directory layout. Here is a table:
442 :    
443 :     (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
444 :    
445 :     config -> config
446 :    
447 :     src/cm -> base/cm
448 :     src/compiler -> base/compiler
449 :     src/runtime -> base/runtime
450 :     src/system -> base/system
451 :    
452 :     src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
453 :    
454 :     src/READMES -> base/READMES
455 :     src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
456 :     for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
457 :     MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
458 :    
459 :     src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
460 :     src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
461 :     ckit -> ckit
462 :     src/cml -> cml
463 :     src/eXene -> eXene
464 :     src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
465 :     src/lexgen -> lexgen
466 :     src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
467 :     src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
468 :     src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
469 :     src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
470 :     src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
471 :     src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
472 :     src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
473 :    
474 :     In addition, there is also a new
475 :    
476 :     ml-lpt
477 :    
478 :     directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
479 :     ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
480 :     LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
481 :    
482 :     The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
483 :     via subversion. For this, it is useful to first check out
484 :    
485 :     svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
486 :    
487 :     and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH. This provides
488 :     access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
489 :     and refresh-all.sh.
490 :    
491 :     To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
492 :    
493 :     checkout-all.sh [dir]
494 :    
495 :     where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
496 :    
497 :     This creates the above directory layout. Each subdirectory of
498 :     the root is under individual subversion control. The stat-all.sh
499 :     and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
500 :     each of these subtrees.

504 : blume 2155 Date: 2006/11/02 12:20:00 CST
505 :     Description:
506 :    
507 :     Reorganized directory layout.
508 :    
509 :     This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
510 :    
511 :     The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
512 :     to a well-defined part of the overall system. Each part can be
513 :     maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
514 :     although currently we still serve everything out of the main
515 :     smlnj-gforge tree.
516 :    
517 :     Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
518 :     layout. The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
519 :     "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
520 :     layout into SML source code. The main script used by the installer
521 :     is in config/actions.
522 :    
523 :     The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
524 :     be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel. The "src" directory
525 :     itself has moved down into a subtree called "base". (We may eventually
526 :     get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
527 :    
528 :     The layout is now as follows:
529 :    
530 :     toplevel tree name | default repository
531 :     | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
532 :     -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
533 :     config | $gf/config/trunk
534 :     |
535 :     base | $gf/sml/trunk
536 :     |
537 :     smlnj-lib | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
538 :     MLRISC | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
539 :     |
540 :     ml-yacc | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
541 :     ml-lex | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
542 :     ml-burg | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
543 :     lexgen | $gf/lexgen/trunk
544 :     heap2asm | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
545 :     |
546 :     cml | $gf/cml/trunk
547 :     eXene | $gf/eXene/trunk
548 :     ckit | $gf/ckit/trunk
549 :     nlffi | $gf/nlffi/trunk
550 :     |
551 :     smlnj-c | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
552 :    
553 :     In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
554 :     and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
555 :    
556 :     admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
557 :     -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their
558 :     default repositories; if dir is missing, checkout into .
559 :     admin/refresh-all.sh [dir]
560 :     -- looks at all trees (from the above list) in dir (default: .)
561 :     and runs "svn update" if the tree exists and is under
562 :     subversion control;
563 :     non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
564 :     admin/stat-all.sh [dir]
565 :     -- like refresh-all.sh, but runs "svn stat" instead

711 :     Description:
712 :    
713 :     Hooked code for Darwin-specific Intel ABI into main compiler.
714 :     (This is a temporary solution which relies on the fact that the
715 :     compiler itself does not use NLFFI. Eventually we need to divorce
716 :     intel mac from generic x86 unix code and make separate sets of binaries.)

745 :     Description:
746 :    
747 :     Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work. This is fixed
748 :     now. (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
749 : blume 2155 at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
750 : mblume 1878 be referred to by another name. In 110.57 this would be
751 :     $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm. I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
752 :     to be valid as well.)
753 :

807 :     Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
808 :     Description:
809 :    
810 :     Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm. This
811 :     file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
812 :     run of CMB.make. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
813 :     it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
814 :     $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
815 :     the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
816 :     might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
817 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
818 :     compiler itself uses.)
819 :    
820 :     Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
821 :     bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

826 :     Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
827 :     Description:
828 :    
829 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
830 :     the system:
831 :    
832 :     $/basis.cm
833 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
834 :     $/pp-lib.cm
835 :     $/controls-lib.cm
836 :     $/html-lib.cm
837 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
838 :    
839 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
840 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
841 :    
842 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
843 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
844 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
845 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
846 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
847 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
848 :    
849 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
850 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
851 :     their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above). In other
852 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
853 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
854 :    
855 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
856 :     MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
857 :     cleanup on this code.
858 :    
859 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
860 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
861 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

1040 :     Tag: blume-20050516-redump-heap
1041 :     Description:
1042 :    
1043 :     Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
1044 :     after configuration variables have been changed.
1045 :    
1046 :     CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
1047 :    
1048 :     This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
1049 : blume 2155 heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
1050 : mblume 1792 restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
1051 :     CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
1052 :     Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
1053 :    
1054 :     Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
1055 :     the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
1056 :     the heap image generation code in the boot code.

1116 :     Description:
1117 :    
1118 :     Brought back SMLofNJ.Susp. The underlying suspension type is the one

1172 :     Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
1173 :     Description:
1174 :    
1175 :     Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility. This is
1176 :     tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
1177 :     It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
1178 :    
1179 :     - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
1180 :    
1181 :     To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
1182 :     config/targets prior to installation. (Notice that this is different
1183 :     from "heap2exec" mentioned below. Not a typo.)
1184 :    
1185 :     To perform an actual test, run the command
1186 :    
1187 :     $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
1188 :    
1189 :     (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
1190 :    
1191 :     For example, run
1192 :    
1193 :     $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
1194 :    
1195 :     This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
1196 :     then invoke directly as a command.

1223 :    
1224 :     * Fixed CM's incorrect assumption that the PPC is little-endian.
1225 :     (On the Mac, it is big-endian. And that's currently our only
1226 :     PPC platform.)

1291 :     Tag: blume-20041214-spaces
1292 :     Description:
1293 :    
1294 :     Hacked some of the scripts (in particular: the installer) to cope with
1295 :     spaces in filenames a bit better. But beware: the current "solution"
1296 :     is likely still full of bugs and inherently incomplete. (We need to
1297 :     do away with those shell scripts for a comprehensive solution.)

1341 :     Tag: blume-20041124-position
1342 :     Description:
1343 :    
1344 :     The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
1345 :     equal to Int64. The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
1346 :     for the time being.
1347 :    
1348 :     To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
1349 :    
1350 :     1. Start sml
1351 :     2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
1352 :     3. Type
1353 :     #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
1354 :     4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
1355 :    
1356 :     This is barely tested. The only test so far was a little SML program
1357 :     counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
1358 :     reading it character-by-character. That test was successful.
1359 :    
1360 :     In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
1361 :     added to the runtime system.

1402 :     Description:
1403 :    
1404 :     - Stripped down the versiontool: It now only handles the version number.
1405 :     The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
1406 :    
1407 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
1408 :     translated. In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
1409 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
1410 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are
1411 :     the new int64 and word64 types.

1426 :     Description:
1427 :    
1428 :     All the pieces of Word64 are now there, with the exception of the
1429 :     conversions from and to LargeWord. (Eventually these need to be identities,
1430 :     but for the time being they don't even make sense because LargeWord is
1431 :     32-bit wide.)
1432 :    
1433 :     Also started to add similar support for Int64, but major pieces of that
1434 :     are still missing.

1439 :     Tag: blume-20041111-word64
1440 :     Description:
1441 :    
1442 :     Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
1443 :     seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
1444 :     I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
1445 :     at the moment.
1446 :    
1447 :     Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64. But
1448 :     this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
1449 :     go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
1450 :     worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
1451 :     simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

1483 :     - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just

1486 :     - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
1487 :     - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
1488 :     normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
1489 :    
1490 :     (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
1491 :     config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

1531 :     Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
1532 :     Description:
1533 :    
1534 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
1535 :     programs. Here is how it works:
1536 :    
1537 :     1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
1538 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
1539 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
1540 :     main program could be modified from something like
1541 :    
1542 :     fun main (pgm, args) = ...
1543 :    
1544 :     to
1545 :    
1546 :     fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
1547 :    
1548 :     2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
1549 :     library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
1550 :     main function.
1551 :    
1552 :     3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
1553 :     CM might have created in the past for your project).
1554 :    
1555 :     4. Build the system using this command line:
1556 :    
1557 :     ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
1558 :     myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
1559 :    
1560 :     instead of the usual
1561 :    
1562 :     ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
1563 :    
1564 :     I changed a library name:
1565 :    
1566 :     $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
1567 :    
1568 :     New libraries:
1569 :    
1570 :     $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
1571 :     -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
1572 :     $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
1573 :     -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

1588 :     Tag: blume-20041015-coverage
1589 :     Description:
1590 :    
1591 :     * Test coverage tool added!
1592 :     * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
1593 :    
1594 :     - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
1595 :     library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
1596 :     - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
1597 :     - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
1598 :     - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
1599 :     - Coverage module is another such plugin
1600 :    
1601 :     To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
1602 :     question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on. This
1603 :     can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
1604 :     (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
1605 :    
1606 :     Plugins are selected at link time. (Pre-compiled instrumented code
1607 :     can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.) When an
1608 :     instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
1609 :     enabled will come into effect for that module.
1610 :    
1611 :     To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
1612 :     and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
1613 :     To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
1614 :     Coverage.install().
1615 :    
1616 :     Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
1617 :     when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
1618 :    
1619 :     Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
1620 :     explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

1674 :

1683 :     Description:
1684 :    
1685 :     Assorted cleanup work:
1686 :    
1687 :     - got rid of intstrmap in favor of using the library's
1688 :     hash table implementation
1689 :     - threw out most of the pathnames stuff, as it was not used anyway
1690 :     - simplified tokentable implementation
1691 :     - fixed some minor spelling errors

1709 :     Description:

1711 :     Added hack to make slave mode work in the presence of the version
1712 :     tool. (Still, since the master does two passes over the code for
1713 :     CMB.make, the release number gets bumped twice when slaves are
1714 :     attached. I don't know if this is worth fixing...)

1720 :     Description:
1721 :    
1722 :     * Moved the "version" magic into its own little library under
1723 : mblume 1672 src/system/smlnj/internal. This avoids expensive reconstruction of
1724 :     a stable src/compiler/core.cm.
1725 : mblume 1639
1726 : mblume 1672 * At the same time, structure CompilerVersion is now known as
1727 :     structure SMLNJVersion.
1728 : mblume 1639
1729 :     * Arranged for the version tool to NOT kick in when rebuilding the system
1730 :     (makeml -rebuild, fixpt). Otherwise one would never reach a fixpoint.
1731 :     Also, loading the versiontool does not work when rebuilding the system
1732 :     because CM is not properly initialized at that time.

1737 :     Tag: blume-20040929-autoversion
1738 :     Description:
1739 :    
1740 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
1741 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
1742 :     generated automagically.
1743 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
1744 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
1745 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
1746 :    
1747 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
1748 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
1749 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
1750 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
1751 :    
1752 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
1753 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
1754 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
1755 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
1756 :    
1757 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.
1758 :     (This is the date that is printed in the banner.)

1765 :    
1766 :     Some cleanup of the controls code.

1770 : mblume 1633 Date: 2004/09/27 22:08:00 CDT
1771 :     Tag: blume-20040927-controls
1772 :     Description:
1773 :    
1774 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
1775 :    
1776 :     1. val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
1777 :    
1778 :     grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
1779 :     in stage 2.
1780 :    
1781 :     2. val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
1782 :    
1783 :     stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
1784 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
1785 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
1786 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
1787 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
1788 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
1789 :    
1790 :     Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
1791 :     "lazysml":
1792 :     - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
1793 :     old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
1794 :     - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
1795 :     (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

1800 :     Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
1801 :     Description:
1802 :    
1803 :     Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest. The only
1804 :     difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
1805 :     set to true. A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
1806 :     by a file name suffix of ".lml".
1807 :    
1808 :     In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
1809 :     supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect. As a
1810 :     result, the following three lines are equivalent:
1811 :    
1812 :     foo.sml : lazysml
1813 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
1814 :     foo.sml (lazy)
1815 :    
1816 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
1817 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
1818 :     after compilation, respectively.
1819 :    
1820 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
1821 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
1822 :     "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "lazy"
1823 :     apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
1824 :     the general mechanism.)
1825 :    
1826 :     The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
1827 :     There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
1828 :    
1829 :     foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
1830 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
1831 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
1832 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
1833 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
1834 :    
1835 :     etc.
1836 :    
1837 :     Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
1838 :     if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
1839 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
1840 :    
1841 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
1842 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
1843 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
1844 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

2196 :     Description:
2197 :    
2198 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
2199 :     recent Basis spec.
2200 :    
2201 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
2202 :    
2203 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
2204 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
2205 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
2206 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
2207 :    
2208 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
2209 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
2210 :     stream in proc after all...
2211 :    
2212 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
2213 :    
2214 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
2215 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
2216 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
2217 :     file descriptors directly.
2218 :    
2219 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
2220 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
2221 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

2234 :     Tag: blume-20040525-group-owner
2235 :     Description:
2236 :    
2237 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
2238 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
2239 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
2240 : mblume 1505 "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
2241 : mblume 1498 library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
2242 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
2243 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
2244 :     library.
2245 :    
2246 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
2247 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
2248 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
2249 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
2250 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
2251 :     cause real problems.

2270 :     Description:
2271 :    
2272 :     Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
2273 :     The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
2274 :     CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it. It now
2275 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
2276 :    
2277 :     This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the

2279 :     installation time.

2297 :     under win32. Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
2298 :     for the voluminous patch!
2299 :    
2300 :     (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
2301 :    
2302 : mblume 1490 Here is David's e-mail:
2303 :    
2304 :     Hi,
2305 :    
2306 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
2307 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
2308 :    
2309 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
2310 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
2311 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
2312 :     110.45 installation.
2313 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
2314 :    
2315 : blume 2155 The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
2316 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
2317 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
2318 : mblume 1490 are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
2319 :    
2320 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
2321 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
2322 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
2323 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
2324 : blume 2155 that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
2325 : mblume 1490 familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
2326 :    
2327 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
2328 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
2329 :     of these functions is
2330 :    
2331 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
2332 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
2333 :    
2334 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
2335 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
2336 :     report an error upwards.
2337 :    
2338 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
2339 : blume 2155 the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
2340 : mblume 1490 Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
2341 :     when the process finishes.
2342 :    
2343 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
2344 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
2345 :    
2346 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
2347 :    
2348 : blume 2155 We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
2349 :     with it. I hope this contribution will help you.
2350 : mblume 1490
2351 :     Keep up the good work!

2516 :     Description:
2517 :    
2518 :     Eliminated the "dont_move_libraries" directive in config/targets.
2519 :     (The mechanism was broken and could not be fixed easily. Moreover,
2520 :     there does not seem to be any reason not to move all libraries into
2521 :     lib during installation. I originally implemented this directive as a
2522 :     backward-compatibility feature when I first introduced the new CM.
2523 :     Now that things have been stable for a long time and going back to the
2524 :     old CM is not an option, there is no reason to keep it around.)

2573 :     Tag: blume-20030926-ppautoload
2574 :     Description:
2575 :    
2576 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
2577 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
2578 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
2579 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
2580 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
2581 :    
2582 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
2583 :     implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
2584 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
2585 :    
2586 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
2587 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
2588 : mblume 1394 be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
2589 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
2590 : mblume 1393 "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
2591 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
2592 :     names in the current environment.)

2598 :     Description:
2599 :    
2600 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
2601 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
2602 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
2603 :    
2604 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
2605 :    
2606 :     and everything happens automagically.
2607 :    
2608 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
2609 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
2610 :     and BINDIR.
2611 :    
2612 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
2613 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
2614 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

2620 :     Description:
2621 :    
2622 :     Added a signature SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET to basis.cm. This is like SOCKET
2623 :     but excludes all non-blocking operations. Defined SOCKET (in Basis)
2624 :     and CML_SOCKET in terms of SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET. Removed superfluous
2625 :     implementations of non-blocking operations from CML's Socket
2626 :     structure.

2631 :     Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
2632 :     Description:
2633 :    
2634 :     1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
2635 :     This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
2636 :     that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
2637 :     blocking or non-blocking. This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
2638 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
2639 :    
2640 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
2641 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
2642 :     between Unix and Win32.
2643 :    
2644 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
2645 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
2646 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
2647 :    
2648 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
2649 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
2650 :     of CML.
2651 :    
2652 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

2673 :     3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen

2698 :

2764 :     Tag: blume-20030909-installer
2765 :     Description:
2766 :    
2767 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
2768 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
2769 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
2770 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
2771 :     independent.)
2772 :    
2773 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
2774 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
2775 :    
2776 :     Other changes:
2777 :    
2778 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
2779 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
2780 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
2781 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
2782 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
2783 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
2784 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
2785 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
2786 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

2803 : mblume 1350 Description:
2804 :    
2805 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
2806 :     (draft) Basis spec.
2807 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
2808 :     Basis spec.
2809 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
2810 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
2811 :     match the new signatures.)
2812 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
2813 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
2814 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
2815 :     appropriate.
2816 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
2817 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
2818 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
2819 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
2820 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
2821 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
2822 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
2823 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
2824 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
2825 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
2826 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
2827 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
2828 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
2829 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
2830 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
2831 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
2832 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
2833 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
2834 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
2835 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
2836 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
2837 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
2838 :     ArraySlice).

2856 : mblume 1348 - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
2857 : mblume 1347 - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
2858 :    
2859 :     compiler:
2860 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
2861 :     - literals
2862 :     - pattern matching
2863 :     - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
2864 :     - overloading on literals and operations
2865 :    
2866 :     This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
2867 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
2868 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
2869 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
2870 :    
2871 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
2872 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
2873 :     is the right thing to do there).
2874 :    
2875 :     * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
2876 :    
2877 :     * A word about conversion primops:
2878 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
2879 : mblume 1348 CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
2880 : mblume 1347 Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
2881 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
2882 : mblume 1348 to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
2883 : mblume 1347 for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
2884 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
2885 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
2886 : mblume 1348 eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
2887 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
2888 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
2889 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
2890 : mblume 1347
2891 :     interactive system:
2892 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
2893 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
2894 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
2895 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
2896 :     use of library functionality.
2897 :    
2898 :     CM:
2899 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
2900 :     are no longer silent.
2901 :    
2902 :     CKIT:
2903 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
2904 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
2905 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
2906 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
2907 :     FixedInt.
2908 :    
2909 :     Throughout the code:
2910 : mblume 1348 Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
2911 : mblume 1347 (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

2930 :     Tag: blume-20030811-windows
2931 :     Description:
2932 :    
2933 :     Version number bumped to 110.42.9. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
2934 :    
2935 :     http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
2936 :    
2937 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a
2938 :     number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
2939 :     unnoticed until now:
2940 :    
2941 :     - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
2942 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
2943 :    
2944 :     - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
2945 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
2946 :    
2947 :     - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly. The main
2948 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
2949 :     using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
2950 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
2951 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
2952 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
2953 :    
2954 :     - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
2955 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
2956 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
2957 :    
2958 :     - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
2959 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
2960 :    
2961 :     standard!
2962 :    
2963 :     into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
2964 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
2965 :    
2966 :     native!
2967 :    
2968 :     switches back to native style. This was needed so that
2969 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
2970 :    
2971 :     - Runtime system:
2972 :    
2973 :     - win32-filesys.c: get_file_time and set_file_time now
2974 :     access modification time, not creation time.
2975 :    
2976 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
2977 :    
2978 :     - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
2979 :    
2980 :     - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
2981 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
2982 :    
2983 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
2984 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
2985 :    
2986 :     .bat scripts:
2987 :    
2988 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
2989 :    
2990 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
2991 :     applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
2992 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
2993 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
2994 :     that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
2995 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
2996 :     Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
2997 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
2998 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
2999 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
3000 :     It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc. No other
3001 :     libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
3002 :     are part of the compiler.)
3003 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
3004 :    
3005 :     Unrelated bug fixes:
3006 :    
3007 :     - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
3008 :     types.
3009 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
3010 :     otherwise.)

3034 :     Description:
3035 :    
3036 :     Two changes:
3037 :    
3038 :     1. Added a flag for controlling whether non-exhaustive bindings will
3039 :     be treated as errors (default is false).
3040 :     2. Cleaned up the *entire* source tree so that CMB.make goes through

3047 :     Description:
3048 :    
3049 :     1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
3050 :    
3051 :     This mainly affects the quality of error messages. However, some
3052 :     of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
3053 :     the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
3054 :     the "macro-expansion" that was going on before. Plus, the mach-
3055 :     compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
3056 :     if-expression.)
3057 :    
3058 :     2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
3059 :     interactive loop.

3066 :    
3067 : blume 2155 Ported the runtime system to cygwin, which uses the unix

3069 :    
3070 : blume 2155 o getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr: these functions seem to be missing in
3071 : allenleung 1327 the Cygwin library.
3072 :     o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
3073 :     o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.
3074 :    
3075 :     A new set of binfiles is located at:
3076 :    
3077 :     http://www.dorsai.org/~leunga/boot.x86-unix.tgz
3078 :    
3079 :     This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.

3118 :     Description:
3119 :

3121 :     This fixes the problem of CM getting confused by files that suddenly
3122 :     change their identity (e.g., by getting unlinked and recreated by some
3123 :     text editor such as vi). There might be a better/cheaper/cleaner way

3302 :     Description:
3303 :    
3304 :     - Added ControlUtil structure to control-lib.cm.
3305 :     - Use it throughout.
3306 :     - Used Controls facility to define MLRISC controls (as opposed to
3307 :     registering MLRISC control ref cells with Controls after the fact)
3308 :     - Fixed messed-up controls priorities.
3309 :    
3310 :     * Removed again all the stuff from config/preloads that one wouldn't
3311 :     be able to preload at the time the initial heap image is built.
3312 :     (Many libraries, e.g., CML, do not exist yet at this time. The
3313 :     only libraries that can be preloaded via config/preloads are those
3314 :     that come bundled with the bootfiles.)

3339 :     Description:
3340 :    
3341 :     0. John Reppy made several modifications to the SML/NJ library.
3342 :     In particular, there is a shiny new controls-lib.cm.
3343 :    
3344 :     1. Pushed new controls interface through compiler so that everything
3345 :     compiles again.
3346 :    
3347 :     2. Added FormatComb and FORMAT_COMB to the CML version of the
3348 :     SML/NJ library (so that CML compiles again).
3349 :    
3350 :     3. Modified init scripts because XXX_DEFAULT environment variables
3351 :     are no longer with us. (Boot-time initialization is now done
3352 :     using the same environment variables that are also used for
3353 :     startup-time initialization of controls.)

3359 :     Description:
3360 :    
3361 :     All pseudo-ops emitted before the first segment declaration
3362 :     such as TEXT, DATA, and BSS directives are assumed to be global
3363 :     declarations and are emitted first in the assembly file. This is
3364 :     useful in a number of situations where one has pseudo-ops that are not
3365 :     specific to any segment, and also works around the constraint that one
3366 :     cannot have client pseudo-ops in the TEXT segment.
3367 :    
3368 :     Because no segment is associated with these declarations it is
3369 :     an error to allocate any space or objects before the first segment
3370 :     directive and an exception will be raised. However, we cannot make
3371 :     this check for client pseudo-ops.
3372 :    
3373 :     These top level declarations are a field in the CFG graph_info.
3374 :     In theory you can continue to add to this field after the CFG has been
3375 :     built -- provided you know what you are doing;-)

3381 :     Description:
3382 :    
3383 :     A few minor bugfixes:
3384 :    
3385 :     - Stopgap measure for bug recently reported by Elsa Gunter (ppDec).
3386 :     (Bogus printouts for redefined bindings still occur. Compiler
3387 :     bug should no longer occur now. We need to redo the prettyprinter
3388 :     from scratch.)
3389 :    
3390 :     - CM pathname printer now also adds escape sequences for ( and )
3391 :    
3392 :     - commend and docu fixes for ml-nlffi

3397 :     Tag: blume-20020510-erg-textio
3398 :     Description:
3399 :    
3400 :     Applied the following bugfix provided by Emden Gansner:
3401 :    
3402 :     Output is corrupted when outputSubstr is used rather than output.
3403 :    
3404 : blume 2155 The problem occurs when a substring
3405 : blume 1189
3406 :     ss = (s, dataStart, dataLen)
3407 :    
3408 : blume 2155 where dataStart > 0, fills a stream buffer with avail bytes left.
3409 :     avail bytes of s, starting at index dataStart, are copied into the
3410 : blume 1189 buffer, the buffer is flushed, and then the remaining dataLen-avail
3411 : blume 2155 bytes of ss are copied into the beginning of the buffer. Instead of
3412 :     starting this copy at index dataStart+avail in s, the current code
3413 : blume 1189 starts the copy at index avail.
3414 :    
3415 :     Fix:
3416 :     In text-io-fn.sml, change line 695 from
3417 :     val needsFlush = copyVec(v, avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)
3418 : blume 2155 to
3419 : blume 1189 val needsFlush = copyVec(v, dataStart+avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)

3435 :     Description:
3436 :    
3437 :     Added full support for div/mod/rem/quot on the x86, using the machine
3438 :     instruction's two results (without clumsily recomputing the remainder)
3439 :     directly where appropriate.
3440 :    
3441 :     Some more extensive power-of-two support was added to the x86 instruction
3442 :     selector (avoiding expensive divs, mods, and muls where they can be
3443 :     replaced with cheaper shifts and masks). However, this sort of thing
3444 :     ought to be done earlier, e.g., within the CPS optimizer so that
3445 :     all architectures benefit from it.
3446 :    
3447 :     The compiler compiles to a fixed point, but changes might be somewhat
3448 :     fragile nevertheless. Please, report any strange things that you might
3449 :     see wrt. div/mod/quot/rem...

3455 :     Description:
3456 :    
3457 :     Fixed my broken div/mod logic. Unfortunately, this means that the
3458 :     inline code for div/mod now has one more comparison than before.
3459 :     Fast paths (quotient > 0 or remainder = 0) are not affected, though.
3460 :     The problem was with quotient = 0, because that alone does not tell
3461 :     us which way the rounding went. One then has to look at whether
3462 :     remainder and divisor have the same sign... :(
3463 :

3470 :     Description:
3471 :    
3472 :     NEW BOOTFILES!!! Version number bumped to 110.39.3.
3473 :    
3474 :     Primops have changed. This means that the bin/boot-file formats have
3475 :     changed as well.
3476 :    
3477 :     To make sure that there is no confusion, I made a new version.
3478 :    
3479 :    
3480 :     CHANGES:
3481 :    
3482 :     * removed REMT from mltree (remainder should never overflow).
3483 :    
3484 :     * added primops to deal with divisions of all flavors to the frontend
3485 :    
3486 :     * handled these primops all the way through so they map to their respective
3487 :     MLRISC support
3488 :    
3489 :     * used these primops in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32
3490 :    
3491 :     * removed INLDIV, INLMOD, and INLREM as they are no longer necessary
3492 :    
3493 :     * parameterized INLMIN, INLMAX, and INLABS by a numkind
3494 :    
3495 :     * translate.sml now deals with all flavors of INL{MIN,MAX,ABS}, including
3496 :     floating point
3497 :    
3498 :     * used INL{MIN,MAX,ABS} in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32,
3499 :     and Real (but Real.abs maps to a separate floating-point-only primop)
3500 :    
3501 :    
3502 :     TODO items:
3503 :    
3504 :     * Hacked Alpha32 instruction selection, disabling the selection of REMx
3505 :     instructions because the machine instruction encoder cannot handle
3506 :     them. (Hppa, PPC, and Sparc instruction selection did not handle
3507 :     REM in the first place, and REM is supported by the x86 machine coder.)
3508 :    
3509 :     * Handle DIV and MOD with DIV_TO_NEGINF directly in the x86 instruction
3510 :     selection phase. (The two can be streamlined because the hardware
3511 :     delivers both quotient and remainder at the same time anyway.)
3512 :    
3513 :     * Think about what to do with "valOf(Int32.minInt) div ~1" and friends.
3514 :     (Currently the behavior is inconsistent both across architectures and
3515 :     wrt. the draft Basis spec.)
3516 :    
3517 :     * Word8 should eventually be handled natively, too.
3518 :    
3519 :     * There seems to be one serious bug in mltree-gen.sml. It appears, though,
3520 :     as if there currently is no execution path that could trigger it in
3521 :     SML/NJ. (The assumptions underlying functions arith and promotable do not
3522 :     hold for things like multiplication and division.)

3527 :     Tag: blume-20020327-mlrisc-divisions
3528 :     Description:
3529 :    
3530 :     Added support for all four division operations (ML's div, mod, quot,
3531 :     and rem) to MLRISC. In the course of doing so, I also rationalized
3532 :     the naming (no more annoying switch-around of DIV and QUOT), by
3533 :     parameterizing the operation by div_rounding_mode (which can be either
3534 :     DIV_TO_ZERO or DIV_TO_NEGINF).
3535 :    
3536 :     The generic MLTreeGen functor takes care of compiling all four
3537 :     operations down to only round-to-zero div.
3538 :    
3539 :     Missing pieces:
3540 :    
3541 :     * Doing something smarter than relying on MLTreeGen on architectures
3542 :     like, e.g., the x86 where hardware division delivers both quotient and
3543 :     remainder at the same time. With this, the implementation of the
3544 :     round-to-neginf operations could be further streamlined.
3545 :    
3546 :     * Remove inlining support for div/mod/rem from the frontend and replace it
3547 :     with primops that get carried through to the backend. Do this for all
3548 :     int and word types.

3553 :     Tag: blume-20020325-divmod
3554 :     Description:
3555 :    
3556 :     I improved (hopefully without breaking them) the implementation of Int.div,
3557 :     Int.mod, and Int.rem. For this, the code in translate.sml now takes
3558 :     advantage of the following observations:
3559 :    
3560 :     Let q = x quot y r = x rem y
3561 :     d = x div y m = x mod y
3562 :    
3563 :     where "quot" is the round-to-zero version of integer division that
3564 :     hardware usually provides. Then we have:
3565 :    
3566 :     r = x - q * y where neither the * nor the - will overflow
3567 :     d = if q >= 0 orelse x = q * y then q else q - 1
3568 :     where neither the * nor the - will overflow
3569 :     m = if q >= 0 orelse r = 0 then r else r + y
3570 :     where the + will not overflow
3571 :    
3572 :     This results in substantial simplification of the generated code.
3573 :     The following table shows the number of CFG nodes and edges generated
3574 :     for
3575 :     fun f (x, y) = x OPER y
3576 :     (* with OPER \in div, mod, quot, rem *)
3577 :    
3578 :    
3579 :     OPER | nodes(old) | edges(old) | nodes(new) | edges(new)
3580 :     --------------------------------------------------------

3617 :     Description:
3618 :    
3619 :     1. Changes to FLINT primops:
3620 :    
3621 :     (* make a call to a C-function;
3622 :     * The primop carries C function prototype information and specifies
3623 :     * which of its (ML-) arguments are floating point. C prototype
3624 :     * information is for use by the backend, ML information is for
3625 :     * use by the CPS converter. *)
3626 :     | RAW_CCALL of { c_proto: CTypes.c_proto,
3627 :     ml_args: ccall_type list,
3628 :     ml_res_opt: ccall_type option,
3629 :     reentrant : bool
3630 :     } option
3631 :     (* Allocate uninitialized storage on the heap.
3632 :     * The record is meant to hold short-lived C objects, i.e., they
3633 : blume 2155 * are not ML pointers. With the tag, the representation is
3634 : leunga 1174 * the same as RECORD with tag tag_raw32 (sz=4), or tag_fblock (sz=8)
3635 :     *)
3636 : blume 2155 | RAW_RECORD of {tag:bool,sz:int}
3637 : leunga 1174 and ccall_type = CCALL_INT32 | CCALL_REAL64 | CCALL_ML_PTR
3638 :    
3639 :     2. These CPS primops are now overloaded:
3640 :    
3641 :     rawload of {kind:numkind}
3642 :     rawstore of {kind:numkind}
3643 :    
3644 :     The one argument form is:
3645 :    
3646 :     rawload {kind} address
3647 :    
3648 :     The two argument form is:
3649 : blume 2155
3650 : leunga 1174 rawload {kind} [ml object, byte-offset]
3651 :    
3652 :     3. RAW_CCALL/RCC now takes two extra arguments:
3653 :    
3654 :     a. The first is whether the C call is reentrant, i.e., whether
3655 :     ML state should be saved and restored.
3656 :     b. The second argument is a string argument specifying the name of
3657 :     library and the C function.
3658 :    
3659 :     These things are currently not handled in the code generator, yet.
3660 :    
3661 :     4. In CProto,
3662 :    
3663 : blume 2155 An encoding type of "bool" means "ml object" and is mapped into
3664 :     C prototype of PTR. Note that "bool" is different than "string",
3665 : leunga 1174 even though "string" is also mapped into PTR, because "bool"
3666 :     is assigned an CPS type of BOGt, while "string" is assigned INT32t.
3667 :    
3668 :     5. Pickler/unpicker
3669 :    
3670 :     Changed to handle RAW_RECORD and newest RAW_CCALL
3671 :    
3672 :     6. MLRiscGen,
3673 :    
3674 :     1. Changed to handle the new rawload/rawstore/rawrecord operators.
3675 :     2. Code for handling C Calls has been moved to a new module CPSCCalls,
3676 :     in the file CodeGen/cpscompile/cps-c-calls.sml
3677 :    
3678 :     7. Added the conditional move operator
3679 :    
3680 :     condmove of branch
3681 :    
3682 : blume 2155 to cps. Generation of this is still buggy so it is currently

3689 : george 1168 Description:
3690 :    
3691 : blume 2155 Implemented the Ball-Larus branch prediction-heuristics, and
3692 : george 1168 incorporated graphical viewers for control flow graphs.
3693 :    
3694 : george 1171 Ball-Larus Heuristics:
3695 : george 1168 ---------------------
3696 :     See the file compiler/CodeGen/cpscompile/cpsBranchProb.sml.
3697 :    
3698 :     By design it uses the Dempster-Shafer theory for combining
3699 :     probabilities. For example, in the function:
3700 :    
3701 :     fun f(n,acc) = if n = 0 then acc else f(n-1, n*acc)
3702 :    
3703 :     the ball-larus heuristics predicts that the n=0 is unlikely
3704 :     (OH-heuristic), and the 'then' branch is unlikely because of the
3705 :     RH-heuristic -- giving the 'then' branch an even lower combined
3706 : george 1171 probability using the Dempster-Shafer theory.
3707 : george 1168
3708 :     Finally, John Reppy's loop analysis in MLRISC, further lowers the
3709 :     probability of the 'then' branch because of the loop in the else
3710 :     branch.
3711 :    
3712 :    
3713 :     Graphical Viewing:
3714 : blume 2155 ------------------
3715 : george 1168 I merely plugged in Allen's graphical viewers into the compiler. The
3716 :     additional code is not much. At the top level, saying:
3717 :    
3718 :     Control.MLRISC.getFlag "cfg-graphical-view" := true;
3719 :    
3720 :     will display the graphical view of the control flow graph just before
3721 :     back-patching. daVinci must be in your path for this to work. If
3722 :     daVinci is not available, then the default viewer can be changed
3723 :     using:
3724 :    
3725 :     Control.MLRISC.getString "viewer"
3726 :    
3727 :     which can be set to "dot" or "vcg" for the corresponding viewers. Of
3728 :     course, these viewers must be in your path.
3729 :    
3730 :     The above will display the compilation unit at the level of clusters,
3731 :     many of which are small, boring, and un-interesting. Also setting:
3732 :    
3733 :     Control.MLRISC.getInt "cfg-graphical-view_size"
3734 :    
3735 :     will display clusters that are larger than the value set by the above.

3759 :     Description:
3760 :    
3761 : blume 2155 1. Recoded the buggy parts of x86-fp.
3762 : leunga 1156
3763 :     a. All the block reordering code has been removed.
3764 :     We now depend on the block placement phases to do this work.
3765 :    
3766 :     b. Critical edge splitting code has been simplified and moved into the
3767 :     CFG modules, as where they belong.
3768 :    
3769 :     Both of these were quite buggy and complex. The code is now much, much
3770 :     simpler.
3771 :    
3772 :     2. X86 backend.
3773 :    
3774 :     a. Added instructions for 64-bit support. Instruction selection for
3775 :     64-bit has not been committed, however, since that
3776 : blume 2155 requires changes to MLTREE which haven't been approved by
3777 : leunga 1156 Lal and John.
3778 :    
3779 : blume 2155 b. Added support for FUCOMI and FUCOMIP when generating code for
3780 : leunga 1156 PentiumPro and above. We only generate these instructions in
3781 :     the fast-fp mode.
3782 :    
3783 : blume 2155 c. Added cases for JP and JNP in X86FreqProps.
3784 :    
3785 : leunga 1156 3. CFG
3786 :    
3787 :     CFG now has a bunch of methods for edge splitting and merging.
3788 :    
3789 :     4. Machine description.
3790 :    
3791 :     John's simplification of MLTREE_BASIS.fcond broke a few machine
3792 :     description things:
3793 :    
3794 :     rtl-build.{sig,sml} and hppa.mdl fixed.
3795 :    
3796 : blume 2155 NOTE: the machine description stuff in the repository is still broken.
3797 :     Again, I can't put my fixes in because that involves
3798 :     changes to MLTREE.

3804 :     Description:

3816 :     Description:
3817 :    
3818 :     Added a structure C.W and functions convert/Ptr.convert to ml-nlffi-lib.
3819 :    
3820 :     This implements a generic mechanism for changing constness qualifiers
3821 :     anywhere within big C types without resorting to outright "casts".
3822 :     (So far, functions such as C.rw/C.ro or C.Ptr.rw/C.Ptr.ro only let you
3823 :     modify the constness at the outermost level.)
3824 :     The implementation of "convert" is based on the idea of "witness"
3825 :     values -- values that are not used by the operation but whose types
3826 :     "testify" to their applicability. On the implementation side, "convert"
3827 :     is simply a projection (returning its second curried argument). With
3828 :     cross-module inlining, it should not result in any machine code being
3829 :     generated.

3851 :     Description:
3852 :    
3853 :     Controls:
3854 :     ---------
3855 :    
3856 :     1. Factored out the recently-added Controls : CONTROLS stuff and put
3857 :     it into its own library $/controls-lib.cm. The source tree for
3858 :     this is under src/smlnj-lib/Controls.
3859 :    
3860 :     2. Changed the names of types and functions in this interface, so they
3861 :     make a bit more "sense":
3862 :    
3863 :     module -> registry
3864 :     'a registry -> 'a group
3865 :    
3866 :     3. The interface now deals in ref cells only. The getter/setter interface
3867 :     is (mostly) gone.
3868 :    
3869 :     4. Added a function that lets one register an already-existing ref cell.
3870 :    
3871 :     5. Made the corresponding modifications to the rest of the code so that
3872 :     everything compiles again.
3873 :    
3874 :     6. Changed the implementation of Controls.MLRISC back to something closer
3875 :     to the original. In particular, this module (and therefore MLRISC)
3876 :     does not depend on Controls. There now is some link-time code in
3877 :     int-sys.sml that registers the MLRISC controls with the Controls
3878 :     module.
3879 :    
3880 :     CM:
3881 :     ---
3882 :    
3883 :     * One can now specify the lambda-split aggressiveness in init.cmi.

3903 :    
3904 :     The problem was that the code generator did not generate any fp registers
3905 :     in this case, and the ra didn't know that it needed to run the X86FP phase to
3906 :     translate the pseudo fp instruction. This only happened with unary fp

3936 :     Description:
3937 :    
3938 :     Yet another version number bump (because of small changes to the
3939 :     binfile format). Version number is now 110.39.2. NEW BOOTFILES!
3940 :    
3941 :     Changes:
3942 :    
3943 :     The new pid generation scheme described a few weeks ago was overly
3944 :     complicated. I implemented a new mechanism that is simpler and
3945 :     provides a bit more "stability": Once CM has seen a compilation
3946 :     unit, it keeps its identity constant (as long as you do not delete
3947 :     those crucial CM/GUID/* files). This means that when you change
3948 : blume 1145 an interface, compile, then go back to the old interface, and
3949 : blume 1137 compile again, you arrive at the original pid.
3950 :    
3951 :     There now also is a mechanism that instructs CM to use the plain
3952 :     environment hash as a module's pid (effectively making its GUID
3953 :     the empty string). For this, "noguid" must be specified as an
3954 :     option to the .sml file in question within its .cm file.
3955 :     This is most useful for code that is being generated by tools such
3956 :     as ml-nlffigen (because during development programmers tend to
3957 :     erase the tool's entire output directory tree including CM's cached
3958 :     GUIDs). "noguid" is somewhat dangerous (since it can be used to locally
3959 :     revert to the old, broken behavior of SML/NJ, but in specific cases
3960 :     where there is no danger of interface confusion, its use is ok
3961 :     (I think).
3962 :    
3963 :     ml-nlffigen by default generates "noguid" annotations. They can be
3964 :     turned off by specifying -guid in its command line.

3979 :     Description:
3980 :    
3981 :     Tested the jump chain elimination on all architectures (except the
3982 :     hppa). This is on by default right now and is profitable for the
3983 :     alpha and x86, however, it may not be profitable for the sparc and ppc
3984 :     when compiling the compiler.
3985 :    
3986 : blume 2155 The gc test will typically jump to a label at the end of the cluster,
3987 :     where there is another jump to an external cluster containing the actual
3988 : george 1133 code to invoke gc. This is to allow factoring of common gc invocation
3989 :     sequences. That is to say, we generate:
3990 :    
3991 :     f:
3992 :     testgc
3993 :     ja L1 % jump if above to L1
3994 :    
3995 :     L1:
3996 :     jmp L2
3997 :    
3998 :    
3999 :     After jump chain elimination the 'ja L1' instructions is converted to
4000 :     'ja L2'. On the sparc and ppc, many of the 'ja L2' instructions may end
4001 :     up being implemented in their long form (if L2 is far away) using:
4002 :    
4003 :     jbe L3 % jump if below or equal to L3
4004 :     jmp L2
4005 :     L3:
4006 :     ...
4007 :    
4008 :    
4009 :     For large compilation units L2 may be far away.

4074 :     Description:
4075 :    
4076 :     This is a very large but mostly boring patch which makes (almost)
4077 :     every tuneable compiler knob (i.e., pretty much everything under
4078 :     Control.* plus a few other things) configurable via both the command
4079 :     line and environment variables in the style CM did its configuration
4080 :     until now.
4081 :    
4082 :     Try starting sml with '-h' (or, if you are brave, '-H')
4083 :    
4084 :     To this end, I added a structure Controls : CONTROLS to smlnj-lib.cm which
4085 :     implements the underlying generic mechanism.
4086 :    
4087 :     The interface to some of the existing such facilities has changed somewhat.
4088 :     For example, the MLRiscControl module now provides mkFoo instead of getFoo.
4089 :     (The getFoo interface is still there for backward-compatibility, but its
4090 :     use is deprecated.)
4091 :    
4092 :     The ml-build script passes -Cxxx=yyy command-line arguments through so
4093 :     that one can now twiddle the compiler settings when using this "batch"
4094 :     compiler.
4095 :    
4096 :     TODO items:
4097 :    
4098 :     We should go through and throw out all controls that are no longer
4099 :     connected to anything. Moreover, we should go through and provide
4100 :     meaningful (and correct!) documentation strings for those controls
4101 :     that still are connected.
4102 :    
4103 :     Currently, multiple calls to Controls.new are accepted (only the first
4104 :     has any effect). Eventually we should make sure that every control
4105 :     is being made (via Controls.new) exactly once. Future access can then
4106 :     be done using Controls.acc.
4107 :    
4108 :     Finally, it would probably be a good idea to use the getter-setter
4109 :     interface to controls rather than ref cells. For the time being, both
4110 :     styles are provided by the Controls module, but getter-setter pairs are
4111 :     better if thread-safety is of any concern because they can be wrapped.

4115 :     One bug fix: The function blockPlacement in three of the MLRISC
4116 :     backpatch files used to be hard-wired to one of two possibilities at
4117 :     link time (according to the value of the placementFlag). But (I
4118 :     think) it should rather sense the flag every time.

4121 :    
4122 :     Other assorted changes (by other people who did not supply a HISTORY entry):
4123 :    
4124 :     1. the cross-module inliner now works much better (Monnier)
4125 :     2. representation of weights, frequencies, and probabilities in MLRISC
4126 :     changed in preparation of using those for weighted block placement
4127 :     (Reppy, George)

4133 :    
4134 :     Tested the weighted block placement optimization on all architectures
4135 :     (except the hppa) using AMPL to generate the block and edge frequencies.
4136 :     Changes were required in the machine properties to correctly
4137 : blume 2155 categorize trap instructions. There is an MLRISC flag
4138 :     "weighted-block-placement" that can be used to enable weighted block
4139 : george 1124 placement, but this will be ineffective without block/edge
4140 :     frequencies (coming soon).

4147 :    
4148 : george 1124 In order to support the block placement optimization, a new cluster
4149 :     is generated as the very first cluster (called the linkage cluster).
4150 : blume 2155 It contains a single jump to the 'real' entry point for the compilation
4151 : george 1124 unit. Block placement has no effect on the linkage cluster itself, but
4152 :     all the other clusters have full freedom in the manner in which they
4153 : blume 2155 reorder blocks or functions.
4154 : george 1116
4155 :     On the x86 the typical linkage code that is generated is:
4156 :     ----------------------
4157 :     .align 2
4158 :     L0:
4159 :     addl $L1-L0, 72(%esp)
4160 : george 1124 jmp L1
4161 : george 1116
4162 :    
4163 :     .align 2
4164 :     L1:
4165 :     ----------------------
4166 :    
4167 : blume 2155 72(%esp) is the memory location for the stdlink register. This
4168 : george 1116 must contain the address of the CPS function being called. In the
4169 : george 1124 above example, it contains the address of L0; before
4170 : george 1116 calling L1 (the real entry point for the compilation unit), it
4171 :     must contain the address for L1, and hence
4172 :    
4173 :     addl $L1-L0, 72(%esp)
4174 :    
4175 : george 1124 I have tested this on all architectures except the hppa.The increase
4176 :     in code size is of course negligible

4189 :     Description:
4190 :    
4191 :     - made types in structure C and C_Debug to be equal
4192 :     - got rid of code duplication (c-int.sml vs. c-int-debug.sml)
4193 :     - there no longer is a C_Int_Debug (C_Debug is directly derived from C)
