266 :     Description:
267 :    
268 :     - Aaron: fixed a number of bugs in ml-ulex.
269 :     - Matthias:
270 :     - added CM control "cm.force-tools"; this is false by default;
271 :     when set to true, then tools like ml-yacc, ml-lex, ml-ulex, etc.
272 :     will be forced to run regardless of whether or not their targets
273 :     are up-to-date
274 :     - changed installer code so that config/install.sh will re-build
275 :     heap images for all tools even if those heap images already existed

278 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
279 : blume 2688 Date: 2007/06/04 21:21:00 CDT
280 :     Description:
281 :    
282 :     After Aaron Turon's bug fix for ml-ulex (handling the ^ character
283 :     in legacy mode), re-ran the lexer generator on all lex input files
284 :     and committed the results.
285 :    
286 :     This should fix the problem with ckit and nlffi that was reported
287 :     by Vesa A. Norrman.

299 :     Date: 2007/05/31 14:55:00 CDT
300 :     Revision: 2650
301 :     Description:
302 :    
303 :     3rd merge of base from primop-branch-3 into the trunk.
304 :     Additional bug fixes included:
305 :    
306 :     * Timer.cpu_timer, etc. type printing corrected (by making
307 :     Timer have opaque sig constraint in basis/Implementation/timer.sml)
308 :     * Infinite loop in FLINT (tests/typing/tests/25.sml) (fix by
309 :     Stefan Monnier)

311 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
312 : blume 2645 Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
313 :     Date: 2007/05/31 11:40:00 CDT
314 :     Description:
315 :    
316 :     Fixed some bugs in new Div code in FLINT/trans/translate.sml.
317 :    
318 :     Also, changed the handling of "no core access": When translate.sml
319 :     needs access to a core exception at a time when the core has not
320 :     been set up yet (this only happens when compiling system/smlnj/init/*),
321 :     then don't bother generating the corresponding tests.
322 :    
323 : dbm 2650 The old scheme was to generate a bogus value to be used in place of
324 :     the exception. Unfortunately, that confuses the plambda type checker.
325 :     Moreover, it does not do any good, because at runtime we don't expect
326 :     such an exception to be ever raised. (The code in system/smlnj/init/*
327 :     has to be written very carefully with this in mind!)

338 :     Date: 2007/05/29 19:00:00 CDT
339 :     Description:
340 :    
341 :     FLINT/trans/translate.sml now wraps all DIV/MOD/QUOT/REM operations
342 :     with an explicit test for zero division. This should fixes several
343 :     regressions and makes it possible for downstream optimization phases
344 :     to treat these operations as "pure" when they are applied to unsigned
345 :     operands.

349 :     Date: 2007/05/29
350 :     Description:
351 :    
352 :     Added the new MLRISC code generator for the AMD64. This version,
353 :     in contrast to the previous one, uses SSE registers and instructions
354 :     for all floating-point computations.

359 : jhr 2613 Description:
360 :    
361 : jhr 2617 A number of fixes related to the formatting of dates. These include fixes
362 :     for bugs #1415 and #1416. We also now correctly handle format characters that
363 :     lie outside the specified set.

366 : blume 2610 Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
367 :     Date: 2007/05/23 22:30:00 CDT
368 :     Description:
369 :    
370 :     CMB (and CM) now automatically defines the CM "preprocessor" symbol
371 :     NO_PLUGINS during "makeml -rebuild" or when CM operates in "slave" mode.
372 :    
373 :     (In addition, CMB_REBUILD_MODE is defined for makeml -rebuild,
374 :     CM_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves while running CM.make
375 :     or CM.rebuild, and CMB_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves
376 :     while running CMB.make. The point is that the single symbol
377 :     NO_PLUGINS is definde in all three cases.)
378 :    
379 :     I changed the three locations within the sources that get compiled
380 :     during CMB.make where ml-yacc or ml-lex input is processed: When
381 :     NO_PLUGINS defined, then the use of the mlyacc and mllex tools
382 :     is bypassed.
383 :    
384 :     When bootstrapping new versions of the compiler, there can be
385 :     situations where the plugin tools for ml-yacc and ml-lex (or ml-ulex)
386 :     are not available or otherwise not operational. In this case one can
387 :     manually define the NO_PLUGINS symbol prior to running CMB.make(). To
388 :     do so, the following command should be issued at the interactive
389 :     prompt:
390 :    
391 :     #set (CMB.symval "NO_PLUGINS") (SOME 1);
392 :    
393 :     A CMB.make with NO_PLUGINS defined relies on the existence of the
394 :     files that normally would be generated by ml-yacc and ml-lex.
395 :     (Copies of these files are in the repository.)

411 :     Description:
412 :    
413 :     Changed the installation mechanism for CM tool plugins. These are
414 :     just libaries and now get installed like ordinary libaries.
415 :    
416 :     There are now a number of new installation targets that give some
417 :     fine-grain control over what classes and suffixes are known, and what
418 :     they will map to.
419 :     See config/targets for details.
420 :    
421 :     The code that caused plugin installation as part of running a
422 :     tool's "build" script has been removed. (The build script is for
423 :     building, not for installing.)

428 :     Description:
429 :    
430 :     Added a boolean control named cm.tolerate-tool-failures (env. variable
431 :     name: CM_TOLERATE_TOOL_FAILURES). The default is false and makes
432 :     CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status. If
433 :     the control is set to true, then CM will press on after tool failures
434 :     in the event that the target files exist (even though they are
435 :     considered outdated). Turning the control to true can be useful for
436 :     bootstrapping.

441 :     Description:
442 :    
443 :     Merge of ml-lpt revisions for 110.64.
444 :    
445 :     The name of several ml-lpt-lib modules has changed:
446 :     Repair => AntlrRepair
447 :     StreamPos => AntlrStreamPos
448 :     ErrHandlerFn => AntlrErrHandler
449 :     EBNF => AntlrEBNF
450 :    
451 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
452 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
453 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
454 :     extends the previous ones. This does not apply to %start or %name,
455 :     of course.
456 :    
457 :     Importing a grammar via %import now includes *all* declarations in from
458 :     the imported grammar, except for %name, %entry, and %start. Tokens
459 :     and nonterminals can be dropped using the new %dropping clause of the
460 :     %import directive; the separate %drop and %extend have been removed.
461 :    
462 :     We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the %nonterms
463 :     directive as in ml-yacc.
464 :    
465 :     The refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
466 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.
467 :    
468 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
469 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. Error repair for
470 :     generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
471 :     much faster and more accurate.
472 :    
473 :     ml-ulex is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
474 :     escape codes are now interpreted literally, so e.g. \| denotes "|").
475 :     Also, character classes may now include a "-" character at the beginning
476 :     as is standard in most other regexp tools.
477 :    
478 :     All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
479 :     been updated and improved with this merge.

547 :    
548 :     More Basis fixes: The Char.fromString (etc.) functions did not handle
549 :     the "\uxxxx" escape sequence. There is still an outstanding bug with

629 :     Date: 2007/02/26
630 :     Description:
631 :    
632 :     Added preliminary support in MLRISC for Staged Allocation, a technique
633 :     for specifying calling conventions (see
634 :     http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~nr/pubs/staged-abstract.html).
635 :     Initially, we plan to use this code to generate C calls for the AMD64.
636 :    
637 :     The staged allocation code base resides in MLRISC/staged-allocation,
638 :     and specialized calling conventions go in MLRISC/ARCH/staged-allocation.

644 :    
645 :     Bug fix: when SaveCState was called with two values to save, a subsequent
646 :     GC could cause the RestoreCState to fail because the saved state had been
647 :     promoted to tagless pair.

658 :    
659 :     x86MCEmitter crashed when the immediate operand to MOVB was outside
660 :     of the range -128 ... 127. I've changed the code so that the range
661 :     check is disabled. Only the low order 8 bits of the immediate operand
662 : jhr 2342 are now significant.

702 :     Date: 2007/01/31
703 :     Description:
704 :    
705 :     Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code. Many minor
706 :     improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes. Prepared
707 :     ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure. Changed
708 :     the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
709 :     stream creation from several kinds of sources). Overall, the
710 :     tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
711 :     change in a way that would break compatibility. More work,
712 :     however, is needed in the documentation.

716 : blume 2298 Date: 2007/02/01 10:05:00 CST
717 :     Description:
718 :    
719 :     Implemented library installer. Moved CM plugin code for
720 :     ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
721 :     their respective trees. Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
722 :     and ml-antlr. Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
723 :     and ml-antlr.
724 :    
725 :     For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
726 :     CM tools. (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
727 :     there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
728 :     of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)

733 :     Description:
734 :    
735 :     Added SMLofNJ.shiftArgs which is like a shell's "shift" command.
736 :     Modified CM's startup code to use shiftArgs as it processes
737 :     command line arguments. This way, the init code in each .sml-file
738 :     or library that is mentioned at the top level will see only
739 :     those arguments that have not yet been processed at this point.
740 :     In other words, the init code can "seize control" and process the
741 :     remaining command line.

756 :     Added the UTF8 structure and signature from the Moby compiler to
757 :     the SML/NJ library (and the CML library). These modules will replace
758 :     the version in the ml-lpt-lib.

798 :    
799 :     Fixed the code in runtime/c-libs/posix-tty/{tcgetattr,tcsetattr}.c to
800 :     get the c_cc termios data copied correctly. Also moved the allocation
801 :     of the string to avoid problems if it caused a GC.

807 :     Date: 2006/12/08 09:50:00 CST
808 :     Description:
809 :    
810 :     Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
811 :     causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
812 :     command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
813 :     as long as all target files exist.
814 :    
815 :     This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
816 :     svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
817 :     yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig. (Ml-yacc would
818 :     be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
819 :     available at that time.)

825 :    
826 :     Fixed the types of recvVecFrom, recvVecFrom', recvVecFromNB, and
827 :     recvVecFromNB' in the SOCKET signature. This error is actually
828 :     in the SML Basis specification too.

843 :     Use Say.vsay for printing the "[autoloading]" message, so

845 :     to suppress them.

860 :    
861 :     New working release (110.60). NEW BOOTFILES!
862 :    
863 :     This is the first subversion-hosted release. There are also changes
864 :     to the directory layout. Here is a table:
865 :    
866 :     (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
867 :    
868 :     config -> config
869 :    
870 :     src/cm -> base/cm
871 :     src/compiler -> base/compiler
872 :     src/runtime -> base/runtime
873 :     src/system -> base/system
874 :    
875 :     src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
876 :    
877 :     src/READMES -> base/READMES
878 :     src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
879 :     for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
880 :     MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
881 :    
882 :     src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
883 :     src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
884 :     ckit -> ckit
885 :     src/cml -> cml
886 :     src/eXene -> eXene
887 :     src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
888 :     src/lexgen -> lexgen
889 :     src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
890 :     src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
891 :     src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
892 :     src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
893 :     src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
894 :     src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
895 :     src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
896 :    
897 :     In addition, there is also a new
898 :    
899 :     ml-lpt
900 :    
901 :     directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
902 :     ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
903 :     LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
904 :    
905 :     The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
906 :     via subversion. For this, it is useful to first check out
907 :    
908 :     svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
909 :    
910 :     and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH. This provides
911 :     access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
912 :     and refresh-all.sh.
913 :    
914 :     To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
915 :    
916 :     checkout-all.sh [dir]
917 :    
918 :     where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
919 :    
920 :     This creates the above directory layout. Each subdirectory of
921 :     the root is under individual subversion control. The stat-all.sh
922 :     and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
923 :     each of these subtrees.

928 :     Description:
929 :    
930 :     Reorganized directory layout.
931 :    
932 :     This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
933 :    
934 :     The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
935 :     to a well-defined part of the overall system. Each part can be
936 :     maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
937 :     although currently we still serve everything out of the main
938 :     smlnj-gforge tree.
939 :    
940 :     Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
941 :     layout. The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
942 :     "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
943 :     layout into SML source code. The main script used by the installer
944 :     is in config/actions.
945 :    
946 :     The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
947 :     be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel. The "src" directory
948 :     itself has moved down into a subtree called "base". (We may eventually
949 :     get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
950 :    
951 :     The layout is now as follows:
952 :    
953 :     toplevel tree name | default repository
954 :     | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
955 :     -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
956 :     config | $gf/config/trunk
957 :     |
958 :     base | $gf/sml/trunk
959 :     |
960 :     smlnj-lib | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
961 :     MLRISC | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
962 :     |
963 :     ml-yacc | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
964 :     ml-lex | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
965 :     ml-burg | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
966 :     lexgen | $gf/lexgen/trunk
967 :     heap2asm | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
968 :     |
969 :     cml | $gf/cml/trunk
970 :     eXene | $gf/eXene/trunk
971 :     ckit | $gf/ckit/trunk
972 :     nlffi | $gf/nlffi/trunk
973 :     |
974 :     smlnj-c | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
975 :    
976 :     In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
977 :     and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
978 :    
979 :     admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
980 :     -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their
981 :     default repositories; if dir is missing, checkout into .
982 :     admin/refresh-all.sh [dir]
983 :     -- looks at all trees (from the above list) in dir (default: .)
984 :     and runs "svn update" if the tree exists and is under
985 :     subversion control;
986 :     non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
987 :     admin/stat-all.sh [dir]
988 :     -- like refresh-all.sh, but runs "svn stat" instead

1134 :     Description:
1135 :    
1136 :     Hooked code for Darwin-specific Intel ABI into main compiler.
1137 :     (This is a temporary solution which relies on the fact that the
1138 :     compiler itself does not use NLFFI. Eventually we need to divorce
1139 :     intel mac from generic x86 unix code and make separate sets of binaries.)

1168 :     Description:
1169 :    
1170 :     Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work. This is fixed
1171 :     now. (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
1172 : blume 2155 at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
1173 : mblume 1878 be referred to by another name. In 110.57 this would be
1174 :     $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm. I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1175 :     to be valid as well.)

1231 :     Description:
1232 :    
1233 :     Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm. This
1234 :     file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
1235 :     run of CMB.make. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
1236 :     it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
1237 :     $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
1238 :     the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
1239 :     might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
1240 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
1241 :     compiler itself uses.)
1242 :    
1243 :     Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
1244 :     bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

1249 :     Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
1250 :     Description:
1251 :    
1252 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
1253 :     the system:
1254 :    
1255 :     $/basis.cm
1256 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
1257 :     $/pp-lib.cm
1258 :     $/controls-lib.cm
1259 :     $/html-lib.cm
1260 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1261 :    
1262 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
1263 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
1264 :    
1265 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
1266 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
1267 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
1268 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
1269 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1270 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1271 :    
1272 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
1273 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
1274 :     their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above). In other
1275 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
1276 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
1277 :    
1278 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
1279 :     MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
1280 :     cleanup on this code.
1281 :    
1282 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
1283 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
1284 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

1463 :     Tag: blume-20050516-redump-heap
1464 :     Description:
1465 :    
1466 :     Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
1467 :     after configuration variables have been changed.
1468 :    
1469 :     CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
1470 :    
1471 :     This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
1472 : blume 2155 heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
1473 : mblume 1792 restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
1474 :     CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
1475 :     Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
1476 :    
1477 :     Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
1478 :     the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
1479 :     the heap image generation code in the boot code.

1595 :     Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
1596 :     Description:
1597 :    
1598 :     Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility. This is
1599 :     tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
1600 :     It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
1601 :    
1602 :     - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
1603 :    
1604 :     To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
1605 :     config/targets prior to installation. (Notice that this is different
1606 :     from "heap2exec" mentioned below. Not a typo.)
1607 :    
1608 :     To perform an actual test, run the command
1609 :    
1610 :     $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
1611 :    
1612 :     (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
1613 :    
1614 :     For example, run
1615 :    
1616 :     $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
1617 :    
1618 :     This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
1619 :     then invoke directly as a command.

1715 :     Description:
1716 :    
1717 :     Hacked some of the scripts (in particular: the installer) to cope with
1718 :     spaces in filenames a bit better. But beware: the current "solution"
1719 :     is likely still full of bugs and inherently incomplete. (We need to
1720 :     do away with those shell scripts for a comprehensive solution.)

1746 :    
1747 :     Added function HashString.hashString' for substrings.

1764 :     Tag: blume-20041124-position
1765 :     Description:
1766 :    
1767 :     The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
1768 :     equal to Int64. The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
1769 :     for the time being.
1770 :    
1771 :     To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
1772 :    
1773 :     1. Start sml
1774 :     2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
1775 :     3. Type
1776 :     #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
1777 :     4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
1778 :    
1779 :     This is barely tested. The only test so far was a little SML program
1780 :     counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
1781 :     reading it character-by-character. That test was successful.
1782 :    
1783 :     In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
1784 :     added to the runtime system.

1825 :     Description:
1826 :    
1827 :     - Stripped down the versiontool: It now only handles the version number.
1828 :     The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
1829 :    
1830 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
1831 :     translated. In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
1832 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
1833 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are
1834 :     the new int64 and word64 types.

1848 :     Tag: blume-20041111-more64
1849 :     Description:
1850 :    
1851 :     All the pieces of Word64 are now there, with the exception of the
1852 :     conversions from and to LargeWord. (Eventually these need to be identities,
1853 :     but for the time being they don't even make sense because LargeWord is
1854 :     32-bit wide.)
1855 :    
1856 :     Also started to add similar support for Int64, but major pieces of that
1857 :     are still missing.

1862 :     Tag: blume-20041111-word64
1863 :     Description:
1864 :    
1865 :     Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
1866 :     seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
1867 :     I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
1868 :     at the moment.
1869 :    
1870 :     Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64. But
1871 :     this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
1872 :     go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
1873 :     worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
1874 :     simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

1880 :     Description:
1881 :    
1882 :     More 64-bit hacking (but still not even half-way there yet).
1883 :     Also, some assorted improvements to the handling of 8-bit words.

1902 :     =====================
1903 :    
1904 :     Also:
1905 :    
1906 :     - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just
1907 :     containing the URL string into a file containing
1908 :     shell script code. The code has access to the $VERSION variable.
1909 :     - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
1910 :     - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
1911 :     normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
1912 :    
1913 :     (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
1914 :     config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

1932 :     the x86 c-calls code in MLRISC:
1933 :    
1934 :     - added a missing LOAD in the code that deals with struct arguments
1935 :     - made sure the caller does not add the wrong number of bytes to the
1936 :     stack pointer after a call of a function returning a struct
1937 :     (the callee already pops the implicit argument which points to
1938 :     the space reserved for the result)

1953 : mblume 1656 Date: 2004/10/20 15:06:00 CDT
1954 :     Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
1955 :     Description:
1956 :    
1957 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
1958 :     programs. Here is how it works:
1959 :    
1960 :     1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
1961 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
1962 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
1963 :     main program could be modified from something like
1964 :    
1965 :     fun main (pgm, args) = ...
1966 :    
1967 :     to
1968 :    
1969 :     fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
1970 :    
1971 :     2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
1972 :     library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
1973 :     main function.
1974 :    
1975 :     3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
1976 :     CM might have created in the past for your project).
1977 :    
1978 :     4. Build the system using this command line:
1979 :    
1980 :     ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
1981 :     myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
1982 :    
1983 :     instead of the usual
1984 :    
1985 :     ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
1986 :    
1987 :     I changed a library name:
1988 :    
1989 :     $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
1990 :    
1991 :     New libraries:
1992 :    
1993 :     $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
1994 :     -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
1995 :     $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
1996 :     -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

2011 :     Tag: blume-20041015-coverage
2012 :     Description:
2013 :    
2014 :     * Test coverage tool added!
2015 :     * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
2016 :    
2017 :     - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
2018 :     library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2019 :     - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
2020 :     - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
2021 :     - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
2022 :     - Coverage module is another such plugin
2023 :    
2024 :     To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
2025 :     question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on. This
2026 :     can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
2027 :     (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
2028 :    
2029 :     Plugins are selected at link time. (Pre-compiled instrumented code
2030 :     can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.) When an
2031 :     instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
2032 :     enabled will come into effect for that module.
2033 :    
2034 :     To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2035 :     and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
2036 :     To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
2037 :     Coverage.install().
2038 :    
2039 :     Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
2040 :     when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
2041 :    
2042 :     Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
2043 :     explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

2063 :     etc.
2064 :    
2065 :     This is is preparation of using the original back-trace
2066 :     instrumentation for other purposes. "TDP" stands for
2067 :     Trace/Debug/Profile.
2068 :    
2069 :     The control flag controlling whether instrumentation is on or off is now

2091 :     Tag: blume-20041008-cmkw
2092 :     Description:
2093 :    
2094 :     Fixed handling of keywords in .cm files: After seeing "is" the lexer
2095 :     treats subsequent occurrences of "group", "library", "source", "is",
2096 :     "*", and "-" as ordinary identifiers rather than keywords.
2097 :    
2098 :     Most seriously, this fixes a problem with CM's "shell" tool. The tool
2099 :     is supposed to accept a tool argument called "source", but this did
2100 :     not work because of the clash with the keyword.

2106 :     Description:
2107 :    
2108 :     Assorted cleanup work:
2109 :    
2110 :     - got rid of intstrmap in favor of using the library's
2111 :     hash table implementation
2112 :     - threw out most of the pathnames stuff, as it was not used anyway
2113 :     - simplified tokentable implementation
2114 :     - fixed some minor spelling errors

2120 :     Description:
2121 :    
2122 :     Cleaned up the absyn to reflect the invariant that HANDLE always
2123 :     carries a FNexp as part of the type definition. This eliminates some
2124 :     superfluous sanity checks at runtime down the road.
2125 :    
2126 :     Some minor cleanup of the btrace code.

2132 :     Description:
2133 :    
2134 :     Added hack to make slave mode work in the presence of the version
2135 :     tool. (Still, since the master does two passes over the code for
2136 :     CMB.make, the release number gets bumped twice when slaves are
2137 :     attached. I don't know if this is worth fixing...)

2143 :     Description:
2144 :    
2145 :     * Moved the "version" magic into its own little library under
2146 : mblume 1672 src/system/smlnj/internal. This avoids expensive reconstruction of
2147 :     a stable src/compiler/core.cm.
2148 : mblume 1639

2150 :     structure SMLNJVersion.
2151 : mblume 1639
2152 :     * Arranged for the version tool to NOT kick in when rebuilding the system
2153 :     (makeml -rebuild, fixpt). Otherwise one would never reach a fixpoint.
2154 :     Also, loading the versiontool does not work when rebuilding the system
2155 :     because CM is not properly initialized at that time.

2160 :     Tag: blume-20040929-autoversion
2161 :     Description:
2162 :    
2163 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
2164 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
2165 :     generated automagically.
2166 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
2167 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
2168 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
2169 :    
2170 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
2171 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
2172 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
2173 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
2174 :    
2175 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
2176 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
2177 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
2178 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
2179 :    
2180 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.
2181 :     (This is the date that is printed in the banner.)

2193 : mblume 1633 Date: 2004/09/27 22:08:00 CDT
2194 :     Tag: blume-20040927-controls
2195 :     Description:
2196 :    
2197 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
2198 :    
2199 :     1. val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
2200 :    
2201 :     grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
2202 :     in stage 2.
2203 :    
2204 :     2. val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
2205 :    
2206 :     stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
2207 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
2208 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
2209 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
2210 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
2211 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
2212 :    
2213 :     Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
2214 :     "lazysml":
2215 :     - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
2216 :     old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
2217 :     - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
2218 :     (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)
2219 :

2221 :     Name: Matthias Blume (blume (at) tti - c (dot) org)
2222 : mblume 1632 Date: 2004/09/27 17:00:00 CDT
2223 :     Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
2224 :     Description:
2225 :    
2226 :     Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest. The only
2227 :     difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
2228 :     set to true. A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
2229 :     by a file name suffix of ".lml".
2230 :    
2231 :     In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
2232 :     supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect. As a
2233 :     result, the following three lines are equivalent:
2234 :    
2235 :     foo.sml : lazysml
2236 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
2237 :     foo.sml (lazy)
2238 :    
2239 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
2240 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
2241 :     after compilation, respectively.
2242 :    
2243 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
2244 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
2245 :     "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "lazy"
2246 :     apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
2247 :     the general mechanism.)
2248 :    
2249 :     The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
2250 :     There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
2251 :    
2252 :     foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
2253 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
2254 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
2255 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
2256 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
2257 :    
2258 :     etc.
2259 :    
2260 :     Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
2261 :     if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
2262 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
2263 :    
2264 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
2265 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
2266 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
2267 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

2295 :     variable).

2503 :    
2504 :     - several bugfixes provided or suggested by David Hansel at Reactive Systems:

2529 :     information to the code generator.
2530 :    
2531 :     However, the actual architecture-specific implementation of function
2532 :     arguments and results that are C unions is still not implemented.

2566 :     - use paramAlloc to report c-calls with too many arguments
2567 :     (for PPC version where parameter area is pre-allocated)
2568 :     - added ccall_maxargspace to machspec (to implement the above)
2569 :     - made "make" commend in CM's "make" tool configurable
2570 :     - added option (default: on) for passing the name of the SML/NJ's "bin"
2571 :     directory to "make"; the call looks like this:
2572 :    
2573 :     make <options> SMLNJ_BINDIR=<dir> <target>

2587 :    
2588 :     Note: 1. You have to make a new, clean build of the runtime system.

2619 :     Description:
2620 :    
2621 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
2622 :     recent Basis spec.
2623 :    
2624 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
2625 :    
2626 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
2627 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
2628 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
2629 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
2630 :    
2631 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
2632 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
2633 :     stream in proc after all...
2634 :    
2635 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
2636 :    
2637 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
2638 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
2639 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
2640 :     file descriptors directly.
2641 :    
2642 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
2643 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
2644 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

2657 :     Tag: blume-20040525-group-owner
2658 :     Description:
2659 :    
2660 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
2661 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
2662 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
2663 : mblume 1505 "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
2664 : mblume 1498 library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
2665 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
2666 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
2667 :     library.
2668 :    
2669 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
2670 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
2671 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
2672 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
2673 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
2674 :     cause real problems.

2693 :     Description:
2694 :    
2695 :     Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
2696 :     The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
2697 :     CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it. It now
2698 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
2699 :    
2700 :     This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the

2720 :     under win32. Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
2721 :     for the voluminous patch!
2722 :    
2723 :     (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
2724 :    
2725 : mblume 1490 Here is David's e-mail:
2726 :    
2727 :     Hi,
2728 :    
2729 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
2730 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
2731 :    
2732 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
2733 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
2734 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
2735 :     110.45 installation.
2736 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
2737 :    
2738 : blume 2155 The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
2739 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
2740 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
2741 : mblume 1490 are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
2742 :    
2743 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
2744 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
2745 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
2746 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
2747 : blume 2155 that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
2748 : mblume 1490 familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
2749 :    
2750 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
2751 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
2752 :     of these functions is
2753 :    
2754 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
2755 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
2756 :    
2757 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
2758 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
2759 :     report an error upwards.
2760 :    
2761 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
2762 : blume 2155 the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
2763 : mblume 1490 Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
2764 :     when the process finishes.
2765 :    
2766 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
2767 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
2768 :    
2769 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
2770 :    
2771 : blume 2155 We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
2772 :     with it. I hope this contribution will help you.
2773 : mblume 1490
2774 :     Keep up the good work!

2939 :     Description:
2940 :    
2941 :     Eliminated the "dont_move_libraries" directive in config/targets.
2942 :     (The mechanism was broken and could not be fixed easily. Moreover,
2943 :     there does not seem to be any reason not to move all libraries into
2944 :     lib during installation. I originally implemented this directive as a
2945 :     backward-compatibility feature when I first introduced the new CM.
2946 :     Now that things have been stable for a long time and going back to the
2947 :     old CM is not an option, there is no reason to keep it around.)

2996 :     Tag: blume-20030926-ppautoload
2997 :     Description:
2998 :    
2999 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
3000 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
3001 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
3002 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
3003 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
3004 :    
3005 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
3006 :     implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
3007 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
3008 :    
3009 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
3010 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
3011 : mblume 1394 be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
3012 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
3013 : mblume 1393 "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
3014 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
3015 :     names in the current environment.)

3021 :     Description:
3022 :    
3023 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
3024 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
3025 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
3026 :    
3027 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
3028 :    
3029 :     and everything happens automagically.
3030 :    
3031 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
3032 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
3033 :     and BINDIR.
3034 :    
3035 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
3036 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
3037 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

3044 :    
3045 :     Added a signature SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET to basis.cm. This is like SOCKET
3046 :     but excludes all non-blocking operations. Defined SOCKET (in Basis)
3047 :     and CML_SOCKET in terms of SYNCHRONOUS_SOCKET. Removed superfluous
3048 :     implementations of non-blocking operations from CML's Socket
3049 :     structure.

3054 :     Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
3055 :     Description:
3056 :    
3057 :     1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
3058 :     This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
3059 :     that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
3060 :     blocking or non-blocking. This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
3061 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
3062 :    
3063 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
3064 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
3065 :     between Unix and Win32.
3066 :    
3067 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
3068 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
3069 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
3070 :    
3071 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
3072 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
3073 :     of CML.
3074 :    
3075 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

3121 :    
3122 :     2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
3123 :    
3124 :     3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.

3187 :     Tag: blume-20030909-installer
3188 :     Description:
3189 :    
3190 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
3191 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
3192 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
3193 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
3194 :     independent.)
3195 :    
3196 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
3197 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
3198 :    
3199 :     Other changes:
3200 :    
3201 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
3202 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
3203 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
3204 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
3205 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
3206 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
3207 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
3208 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
3209 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

3226 : mblume 1350 Description:
3227 :    
3228 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
3229 :     (draft) Basis spec.
3230 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
3231 :     Basis spec.
3232 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
3233 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
3234 :     match the new signatures.)
3235 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
3236 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
3237 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
3238 :     appropriate.
3239 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
3240 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
3241 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
3242 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
3243 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
3244 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
3245 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
3246 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
3247 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
3248 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
3249 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
3250 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
3251 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
3252 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
3253 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
3254 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
3255 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
3256 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
3257 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
3258 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
3259 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
3260 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
3261 :     ArraySlice).

3266 :     Tag: blume-20030828-intinf
3267 :     Description:
3268 :    
3269 :     This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
3270 :     (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
3271 :     and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
3272 :    
3273 :     There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
3274 :     the system:
3275 :    
3276 :     Basis:
3277 :     - Implemented IntInf.
3278 :     - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
3279 : mblume 1348 - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
3280 : mblume 1347 - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
3281 :    
3282 :     compiler:
3283 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
3284 :     - literals
3285 :     - pattern matching
3286 :     - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
3287 :     - overloading on literals and operations
3288 :    
3289 :     This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
3290 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
3291 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
3292 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
3293 :    
3294 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
3295 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
3296 :     is the right thing to do there).
3297 :    
3298 :     * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
3299 :    
3300 :     * A word about conversion primops:
3301 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
3302 : mblume 1348 CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
3303 : mblume 1347 Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
3304 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
3305 : mblume 1348 to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
3306 : mblume 1347 for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
3307 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
3308 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
3309 : mblume 1348 eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
3310 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
3311 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
3312 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
3313 : mblume 1347
3314 :     interactive system:
3315 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
3316 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
3317 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
3318 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
3319 :     use of library functionality.
3320 :    
3321 :     CM:
3322 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
3323 :     are no longer silent.
3324 :    
3325 :     CKIT:
3326 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
3327 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
3328 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
3329 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
3330 :     FixedInt.
3331 :    
3332 :     Throughout the code:
3333 : mblume 1348 Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
3334 : mblume 1347 (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

3341 :     Description:

3343 :     Merging changes from the mcz-branch development branch into trunk.
3344 :     These changes involve replacement of the emulated old prettyprinter
3345 :     interface with direct use of the SML/NJ Lib PP library, and fixing
3346 :     of a couple of bugs (895, 1186) relating to error messages. A new
3347 :     prettyprinter for ast datatypes (Elaborator/print/ppast.{sig,sml})
3348 :     has been added.

3353 :     Tag: blume-20030811-windows
3354 :     Description:
3355 :    
3356 :     Version number bumped to 110.42.9. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
3357 :    
3358 :     http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
3359 :    
3360 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a
3361 :     number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
3362 :     unnoticed until now:
3363 :    
3364 :     - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
3365 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
3366 :    
3367 :     - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
3368 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
3369 :    
3370 :     - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly. The main
3371 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
3372 :     using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
3373 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
3374 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
3375 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
3376 :    
3377 :     - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
3378 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
3379 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
3380 :    
3381 :     - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
3382 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
3383 :    
3384 :     standard!
3385 :    
3386 :     into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
3387 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
3388 :    
3389 :     native!
3390 :    
3391 :     switches back to native style. This was needed so that
3392 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
3393 :    
3394 :     - Runtime system:
3395 :    
3396 :     - win32-filesys.c: get_file_time and set_file_time now
3397 :     access modification time, not creation time.
3398 :    
3399 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
3400 :    
3401 :     - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
3402 :    
3403 :     - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
3404 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
3405 :    
3406 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
3407 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
3408 :    
3409 :     .bat scripts:
3410 :    
3411 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
3412 :    
3413 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
3414 :     applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
3415 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
3416 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
3417 :     that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
3418 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
3419 :     Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
3420 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
3421 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
3422 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
3423 :     It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc. No other
3424 :     libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
3425 :     are part of the compiler.)
3426 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
3427 :    
3428 :     Unrelated bug fixes:
3429 :    
3430 :     - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
3431 :     types.
3432 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
3433 :     otherwise.)

3457 :     Description:
3458 :    
3459 :     Two changes:
3460 :    
3461 :     1. Added a flag for controlling whether non-exhaustive bindings will
3462 :     be treated as errors (default is false).
3463 :     2. Cleaned up the *entire* source tree so that CMB.make goes through
3464 :     without a single non-exhaustive match- or bind warning.

3470 :     Description:
3471 :    
3472 :     1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
3473 :    
3474 :     This mainly affects the quality of error messages. However, some
3475 :     of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
3476 :     the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
3477 :     the "macro-expansion" that was going on before. Plus, the mach-
3478 :     compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
3479 :     if-expression.)
3480 :    
3481 :     2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
3482 :     interactive loop.

3489 :    
3490 : blume 2155 Ported the runtime system to cygwin, which uses the unix

3494 : allenleung 1327 the Cygwin library.
3495 :     o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
3496 :     o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.

3498 :     A new set of binfiles is located at:
3499 :    
3500 :     http://www.dorsai.org/~leunga/boot.x86-unix.tgz
3501 :    
3502 :     This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.

3544 :     This fixes the problem of CM getting confused by files that suddenly
3545 :     change their identity (e.g., by getting unlinked and recreated by some
3546 :     text editor such as vi). There might be a better/cheaper/cleaner way

3732 :    
3733 :     * Removed again all the stuff from config/preloads that one wouldn't
3734 :     be able to preload at the time the initial heap image is built.

3762 :     Description:
3763 :    
3764 :     0. John Reppy made several modifications to the SML/NJ library.
3765 :     In particular, there is a shiny new controls-lib.cm.
3766 :    
3767 :     1. Pushed new controls interface through compiler so that everything
3768 :     compiles again.
3769 :    
3770 :     2. Added FormatComb and FORMAT_COMB to the CML version of the
3771 :     SML/NJ library (so that CML compiles again).
3772 :    
3773 :     3. Modified init scripts because XXX_DEFAULT environment variables
3774 :     are no longer with us. (Boot-time initialization is now done
3775 :     using the same environment variables that are also used for
3776 :     startup-time initialization of controls.)

3782 :     Description:
3783 :    
3784 :     All pseudo-ops emitted before the first segment declaration
3785 :     such as TEXT, DATA, and BSS directives are assumed to be global
3786 :     declarations and are emitted first in the assembly file. This is
3787 :     useful in a number of situations where one has pseudo-ops that are not
3788 :     specific to any segment, and also works around the constraint that one
3789 :     cannot have client pseudo-ops in the TEXT segment.
3790 :    
3791 :     Because no segment is associated with these declarations it is
3792 :     an error to allocate any space or objects before the first segment
3793 :     directive and an exception will be raised. However, we cannot make
3794 :     this check for client pseudo-ops.
3795 :    
3796 :     These top level declarations are a field in the CFG graph_info.
3797 :     In theory you can continue to add to this field after the CFG has been
3798 :     built -- provided you know what you are doing;-)

3811 :     from scratch.)

3821 :     Description:
3822 :    
3823 :     Applied the following bugfix provided by Emden Gansner:
3824 :    
3825 :     Output is corrupted when outputSubstr is used rather than output.
3826 :    
3827 : blume 2155 The problem occurs when a substring
3828 : blume 1189
3829 :     ss = (s, dataStart, dataLen)
3830 :    
3831 : blume 2155 where dataStart > 0, fills a stream buffer with avail bytes left.
3832 :     avail bytes of s, starting at index dataStart, are copied into the
3833 : blume 1189 buffer, the buffer is flushed, and then the remaining dataLen-avail
3834 : blume 2155 bytes of ss are copied into the beginning of the buffer. Instead of
3835 :     starting this copy at index dataStart+avail in s, the current code
3836 : blume 1189 starts the copy at index avail.
3837 :    
3838 :     Fix:
3839 :     In text-io-fn.sml, change line 695 from
3840 :     val needsFlush = copyVec(v, avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)
3841 : blume 2155 to
3842 : blume 1189 val needsFlush = copyVec(v, dataStart+avail, dataLen-avail, buf, 0)

3858 :     Description:
3859 :    
3860 :     Added full support for div/mod/rem/quot on the x86, using the machine
3861 :     instruction's two results (without clumsily recomputing the remainder)
3862 :     directly where appropriate.
3863 :    
3864 :     Some more extensive power-of-two support was added to the x86 instruction
3865 :     selector (avoiding expensive divs, mods, and muls where they can be
3866 :     replaced with cheaper shifts and masks). However, this sort of thing
3867 :     ought to be done earlier, e.g., within the CPS optimizer so that
3868 :     all architectures benefit from it.
3869 :    
3870 :     The compiler compiles to a fixed point, but changes might be somewhat
3871 :     fragile nevertheless. Please, report any strange things that you might
3872 :     see wrt. div/mod/quot/rem...

3878 :     Description:
3879 :    
3880 :     Fixed my broken div/mod logic. Unfortunately, this means that the
3881 :     inline code for div/mod now has one more comparison than before.
3882 :     Fast paths (quotient > 0 or remainder = 0) are not affected, though.
3883 :     The problem was with quotient = 0, because that alone does not tell
3884 :     us which way the rounding went. One then has to look at whether
3885 :     remainder and divisor have the same sign... :(
3886 :

3893 :     Description:
3894 :    
3895 :     NEW BOOTFILES!!! Version number bumped to 110.39.3.
3896 :    
3897 :     Primops have changed. This means that the bin/boot-file formats have
3898 :     changed as well.
3899 :    
3900 :     To make sure that there is no confusion, I made a new version.
3901 :    
3902 :    
3903 :     CHANGES:
3904 :    
3905 :     * removed REMT from mltree (remainder should never overflow).
3906 :    
3907 :     * added primops to deal with divisions of all flavors to the frontend
3908 :    
3909 :     * handled these primops all the way through so they map to their respective
3910 :     MLRISC support
3911 :    
3912 :     * used these primops in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32
3913 :    
3914 :     * removed INLDIV, INLMOD, and INLREM as they are no longer necessary
3915 :    
3916 :     * parameterized INLMIN, INLMAX, and INLABS by a numkind
3917 :    
3918 :     * translate.sml now deals with all flavors of INL{MIN,MAX,ABS}, including
3919 :     floating point
3920 :    
3921 :     * used INL{MIN,MAX,ABS} in the implementation of Int, Int32, Word, Word32,
3922 :     and Real (but Real.abs maps to a separate floating-point-only primop)
3923 :    
3924 :    
3925 :     TODO items:
3926 :    
3927 :     * Hacked Alpha32 instruction selection, disabling the selection of REMx
3928 :     instructions because the machine instruction encoder cannot handle
3929 :     them. (Hppa, PPC, and Sparc instruction selection did not handle
3930 :     REM in the first place, and REM is supported by the x86 machine coder.)
3931 :    
3932 :     * Handle DIV and MOD with DIV_TO_NEGINF directly in the x86 instruction
3933 :     selection phase. (The two can be streamlined because the hardware
3934 :     delivers both quotient and remainder at the same time anyway.)
3935 :    
3936 :     * Think about what to do with "valOf(Int32.minInt) div ~1" and friends.
3937 :     (Currently the behavior is inconsistent both across architectures and
3938 :     wrt. the draft Basis spec.)
3939 :    
3940 :     * Word8 should eventually be handled natively, too.
3941 :    
3942 :     * There seems to be one serious bug in mltree-gen.sml. It appears, though,
3943 :     as if there currently is no execution path that could trigger it in
3944 :     SML/NJ. (The assumptions underlying functions arith and promotable do not
3945 :     hold for things like multiplication and division.)

3950 :     Tag: blume-20020327-mlrisc-divisions
3951 :     Description:
3952 :    
3953 :     Added support for all four division operations (ML's div, mod, quot,
3954 :     and rem) to MLRISC. In the course of doing so, I also rationalized
3955 :     the naming (no more annoying switch-around of DIV and QUOT), by
3956 :     parameterizing the operation by div_rounding_mode (which can be either
3957 :     DIV_TO_ZERO or DIV_TO_NEGINF).
3958 :    
3959 :     The generic MLTreeGen functor takes care of compiling all four
3960 :     operations down to only round-to-zero div.
3961 :    
3962 :     Missing pieces:
3963 :    
3964 :     * Doing something smarter than relying on MLTreeGen on architectures
3965 :     like, e.g., the x86 where hardware division delivers both quotient and
3966 :     remainder at the same time. With this, the implementation of the
3967 :     round-to-neginf operations could be further streamlined.
3968 :    
3969 :     * Remove inlining support for div/mod/rem from the frontend and replace it
3970 :     with primops that get carried through to the backend. Do this for all
3971 :     int and word types.

3976 :     Tag: blume-20020325-divmod
3977 :     Description:
3978 :    
3979 :     I improved (hopefully without breaking them) the implementation of Int.div,
3980 :     Int.mod, and Int.rem. For this, the code in translate.sml now takes
3981 :     advantage of the following observations:
3982 :    
3983 :     Let q = x quot y r = x rem y
3984 :     d = x div y m = x mod y
3985 :    
3986 :     where "quot" is the round-to-zero version of integer division that
3987 :     hardware usually provides. Then we have:
3988 :    
3989 :     r = x - q * y where neither the * nor the - will overflow
3990 :     d = if q >= 0 orelse x = q * y then q else q - 1
3991 :     where neither the * nor the - will overflow
3992 :     m = if q >= 0 orelse r = 0 then r else r + y
3993 :     where the + will not overflow
3994 :    
3995 :     This results in substantial simplification of the generated code.
3996 :     The following table shows the number of CFG nodes and edges generated
3997 :     for
3998 :     fun f (x, y) = x OPER y
3999 :     (* with OPER \in div, mod, quot, rem *)

4041 :    
4042 :     1. Changes to FLINT primops:
4043 :    
4044 :     (* make a call to a C-function;
4045 :     * The primop carries C function prototype information and specifies
4046 :     * which of its (ML-) arguments are floating point. C prototype

4053 :     } option
4054 :     (* Allocate uninitialized storage on the heap.
4055 :     * The record is meant to hold short-lived C objects, i.e., they
4056 : blume 2155 * are not ML pointers. With the tag, the representation is
4057 : leunga 1174 * the same as RECORD with tag tag_raw32 (sz=4), or tag_fblock (sz=8)

4062 :     2. These CPS primops are now overloaded:

4065 :     rawstore of {kind:numkind}

4073 : leunga 1174 rawload {kind} [ml object, byte-offset]
4074 :    
4075 :     3. RAW_CCALL/RCC now takes two extra arguments:
4076 :    
4077 :     a. The first is whether the C call is reentrant, i.e., whether
4078 :     ML state should be saved and restored.
4079 :     b. The second argument is a string argument specifying the name of
4080 :     library and the C function.
4081 :    
4082 :     These things are currently not handled in the code generator, yet.
4083 :    
4084 :     4. In CProto,
4085 :    
4086 : blume 2155 An encoding type of "bool" means "ml object" and is mapped into
4087 :     C prototype of PTR. Note that "bool" is different than "string",
4088 : leunga 1174 even though "string" is also mapped into PTR, because "bool"
4089 :     is assigned an CPS type of BOGt, while "string" is assigned INT32t.
4090 :    
4091 :     5. Pickler/unpicker
4092 :    
4093 :     Changed to handle RAW_RECORD and newest RAW_CCALL
4094 :    
4095 :     6. MLRiscGen,
4096 :    
4097 :     1. Changed to handle the new rawload/rawstore/rawrecord operators.
4098 :     2. Code for handling C Calls has been moved to a new module CPSCCalls,
4099 :     in the file CodeGen/cpscompile/cps-c-calls.sml
4100 :    
4101 :     7. Added the conditional move operator

4112 : george 1168 Description:
4113 :    
4114 : blume 2155 Implemented the Ball-Larus branch prediction-heuristics, and
4115 : george 1168 incorporated graphical viewers for control flow graphs.
4116 :    
4117 : george 1171 Ball-Larus Heuristics:
4118 : george 1168 ---------------------
4119 :     See the file compiler/CodeGen/cpscompile/cpsBranchProb.sml.
4120 :    
4121 :     By design it uses the Dempster-Shafer theory for combining
4122 :     probabilities. For example, in the function:
4123 :    
4124 :     fun f(n,acc) = if n = 0 then acc else f(n-1, n*acc)
4125 :    
4126 :     the ball-larus heuristics predicts that the n=0 is unlikely
4127 :     (OH-heuristic), and the 'then' branch is unlikely because of the
4128 :     RH-heuristic -- giving the 'then' branch an even lower combined
4129 : george 1171 probability using the Dempster-Shafer theory.
4130 : george 1168
4131 :     Finally, John Reppy's loop analysis in MLRISC, further lowers the
4132 :     probability of the 'then' branch because of the loop in the else
4133 :     branch.
4134 :    
4135 :    
4136 :     Graphical Viewing:
4137 : blume 2155 ------------------
4138 : george 1168 I merely plugged in Allen's graphical viewers into the compiler. The
4139 :     additional code is not much. At the top level, saying:
4140 :    
4141 :     Control.MLRISC.getFlag "cfg-graphical-view" := true;
4142 :    
4143 :     will display the graphical view of the control flow graph just before
4144 :     back-patching. daVinci must be in your path for this to work. If
4145 :     daVinci is not available, then the default viewer can be changed
4146 :     using:
4147 :    
4148 :     Control.MLRISC.getString "viewer"
4149 :    
4150 :     which can be set to "dot" or "vcg" for the corresponding viewers. Of
4151 :     course, these viewers must be in your path.
4152 :    
4153 :     The above will display the compilation unit at the level of clusters,
4154 :     many of which are small, boring, and un-interesting. Also setting:
4155 :    
4156 :     Control.MLRISC.getInt "cfg-graphical-view_size"
4157 :    
4158 :     will display clusters that are larger than the value set by the above.

4182 :     Description:
4183 :    
4184 : blume 2155 1. Recoded the buggy parts of x86-fp.
4185 : leunga 1156
4186 :     a. All the block reordering code has been removed.
4187 :     We now depend on the block placement phases to do this work.
4188 :    
4189 :     b. Critical edge splitting code has been simplified and moved into the
4190 :     CFG modules, as where they belong.
4191 :    
4192 :     Both of these were quite buggy and complex. T
