886 :     Revision: 2650
887 :     Description:
888 :    
889 :     3rd merge of base from primop-branch-3 into the trunk.
890 :     Additional bug fixes included:
891 :    
892 :     * Timer.cpu_timer, etc. type printing corrected (by making
893 :     Timer have opaque sig constraint in basis/Implementation/timer.sml)
894 :     * Infinite loop in FLINT (tests/typing/tests/25.sml) (fix by
895 :     Stefan Monnier)

899 :     Date: 2007/05/31 11:40:00 CDT
900 :     Description:
901 :    
902 :     Fixed some bugs in new Div code in FLINT/trans/translate.sml.
903 :    
904 :     Also, changed the handling of "no core access": When translate.sml
905 :     needs access to a core exception at a time when the core has not
906 :     been set up yet (this only happens when compiling system/smlnj/init/*),
907 :     then don't bother generating the corresponding tests.
908 :    
909 : dbm 2650 The old scheme was to generate a bogus value to be used in place of
910 :     the exception. Unfortunately, that confuses the plambda type checker.
911 :     Moreover, it does not do any good, because at runtime we don't expect
912 :     such an exception to be ever raised. (The code in system/smlnj/init/*
913 :     has to be written very carefully with this in mind!)

925 :     Description:
926 :    
927 :     FLINT/trans/translate.sml now wraps all DIV/MOD/QUOT/REM operations
928 :     with an explicit test for zero division. This should fixes several
929 :     regressions and makes it possible for downstream optimization phases
930 :     to treat these operations as "pure" when they are applied to unsigned
931 :     operands.

936 :     Description:
937 :    
938 :     Added the new MLRISC code generator for the AMD64. This version,
939 :     in contrast to the previous one, uses SSE registers and instructions
940 :     for all floating-point computations.

946 :    
947 : jhr 2617 A number of fixes related to the formatting of dates. These include fixes
948 :     for bugs #1415 and #1416. We also now correctly handle format characters that
949 :     lie outside the specified set.

953 :     Date: 2007/05/23 22:30:00 CDT
954 :     Description:
955 :    
956 :     CMB (and CM) now automatically defines the CM "preprocessor" symbol
957 :     NO_PLUGINS during "makeml -rebuild" or when CM operates in "slave" mode.
958 :    
959 :     (In addition, CMB_REBUILD_MODE is defined for makeml -rebuild,
960 :     CM_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves while running CM.make
961 :     or CM.rebuild, and CMB_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves
962 :     while running CMB.make. The point is that the single symbol
963 :     NO_PLUGINS is definde in all three cases.)
964 :    
965 :     I changed the three locations within the sources that get compiled
966 :     during CMB.make where ml-yacc or ml-lex input is processed: When
967 :     NO_PLUGINS defined, then the use of the mlyacc and mllex tools
968 :     is bypassed.
969 :    
970 :     When bootstrapping new versions of the compiler, there can be
971 :     situations where the plugin tools for ml-yacc and ml-lex (or ml-ulex)
972 :     are not available or otherwise not operational. In this case one can
973 :     manually define the NO_PLUGINS symbol prior to running CMB.make(). To
974 :     do so, the following command should be issued at the interactive
975 :     prompt:
976 :    
977 :     #set (CMB.symval "NO_PLUGINS") (SOME 1);
978 :    
979 :     A CMB.make with NO_PLUGINS defined relies on the existence of the
980 :     files that normally would be generated by ml-yacc and ml-lex.
981 :     (Copies of these files are in the repository.)

987 :     Description:
988 :    
989 :     2nd merge of base from primop-branch-3 into the trunk.

997 :     Description:
998 :    
999 :     Changed the installation mechanism for CM tool plugins. These are
1000 :     just libaries and now get installed like ordinary libaries.
1001 :    
1002 :     There are now a number of new installation targets that give some
1003 :     fine-grain control over what classes and suffixes are known, and what
1004 :     they will map to.
1005 :     See config/targets for details.
1006 :    
1007 :     The code that caused plugin installation as part of running a
1008 :     tool's "build" script has been removed. (The build script is for
1009 :     building, not for installing.)

1013 : blume 2578 Date: 2007/05/22 11:50:00 CDT
1014 :     Description:
1015 :    
1016 :     Added a boolean control named cm.tolerate-tool-failures (env. variable
1017 :     name: CM_TOLERATE_TOOL_FAILURES). The default is false and makes
1018 :     CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status. If
1019 :     the control is set to true, then CM will press on after tool failures
1020 :     in the event that the target files exist (even though they are
1021 :     considered outdated). Turning the control to true can be useful for
1022 :     bootstrapping.

1027 :     Description:
1028 :    
1029 :     Merge of ml-lpt revisions for 110.64.
1030 :    
1031 :     The name of several ml-lpt-lib modules has changed:
1032 :     Repair => AntlrRepair
1033 :     StreamPos => AntlrStreamPos
1034 :     ErrHandlerFn => AntlrErrHandler
1035 :     EBNF => AntlrEBNF
1036 :    
1037 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1038 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1039 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1040 :     extends the previous ones. This does not apply to %start or %name,
1041 :     of course.
1042 :    
1043 :     Importing a grammar via %import now includes *all* declarations in from
1044 :     the imported grammar, except for %name, %entry, and %start. Tokens
1045 :     and nonterminals can be dropped using the new %dropping clause of the
1046 :     %import directive; the separate %drop and %extend have been removed.
1047 :    
1048 :     We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the %nonterms
1049 :     directive as in ml-yacc.
1050 :    
1051 :     The refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1052 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.
1053 :    
1054 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1055 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. Error repair for
1056 :     generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
1057 :     much faster and more accurate.
1058 :    
1059 :     ml-ulex is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
1060 :     escape codes are now interpreted literally, so e.g. \| denotes "|").
1061 :     Also, character classes may now include a "-" character at the beginning
1062 :     as is standard in most other regexp tools.
1063 :    
1064 :     All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
1065 :     been updated and improved with this merge.

1071 :     Description:
1072 :    
1073 :     Merge of the primop3 branch (base) into the trunk to create 110.63.1.
1074 :     Significant changes in FLINT and the front end, mostly having to do
1075 :     with a reorganized system for handling primops. Various bug fixes
1076 :     and improvements in printing signatures.

1081 :     Description:
1082 :    
1083 :     Preliminary commit of large ml-lpt revisions (more to come for 110.64).
1084 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1085 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1086 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1087 :     extends the previous ones. Grammar extension constructs have also
1088 :     changed. We now allow type annotations on nonterminals. Finally,
1089 :     the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1090 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated. All of these
1091 :     changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for ml-lpt.
1092 :    
1093 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1094 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. There has also been
1095 :     some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this
1096 :     will be further improved in 110.64.

1101 :     Description:
1102 :    
1103 :     More Basis fixes: The Char.fromString (etc.) functions did not handle
1104 :     the "\uxxxx" escape sequence. There is still an outstanding bug with
1105 :     String.fromString the tail is a format escape. I added a comment to
1106 :     this effect in Basis/Implementation/string.sml.

1185 :     Description:
1186 :    
1187 :     Added preliminary support in MLRISC for Staged Allocation, a technique
1188 :     for specifying calling conventions (see
1189 :     http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~nr/pubs/staged-abstract.html).
1190 :     Initially, we plan to use this code to generate C calls for the AMD64.
1191 :    
1192 :     The staged allocation code base resides in MLRISC/staged-allocation,
1193 :     and specialized calling conventions go in MLRISC/ARCH/staged-allocation.

1258 :     Description:
1259 :    
1260 :     Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code. Many minor
1261 :     improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes. Prepared
1262 :     ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure. Changed
1263 :     the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
1264 :     stream creation from several kinds of sources). Overall, the
1265 :     tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
1266 :     change in a way that would break compatibility. More work,
1267 :     however, is needed in the documentation.

1272 :     Description:
1273 :    
1274 :     Implemented library installer. Moved CM plugin code for
1275 :     ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
1276 :     their respective trees. Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
1277 :     and ml-antlr. Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
1278 :     and ml-antlr.
1279 :    
1280 :     For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
1281 :     CM tools. (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
1282 :     there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
1283 :     of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)

1287 : blume 2277 Date: 2007/01/30 11:05:00 CST
1288 :     Description:
1289 :    
1290 :     Added SMLofNJ.shiftArgs which is like a shell's "shift" command.
1291 :     Modified CM's startup code to use shiftArgs as it processes
1292 :     command line arguments. This way, the init code in each .sml-file
1293 :     or library that is mentioned at the top level will see only
1294 :     those arguments that have not yet been processed at this point.
1295 :     In other words, the init code can "seize control" and process the

1353 :

1363 :     Description:
1364 :    
1365 :     Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
1366 :     causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
1367 :     command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
1368 :     as long as all target files exist.
1369 :    
1370 :     This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
1371 :     svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
1372 :     yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig. (Ml-yacc would
1373 :     be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
1374 :     available at that time.)

1380 :    
1381 :     Fixed the types of recvVecFrom, recvVecFrom', recvVecFromNB, and
1382 :     recvVecFromNB' in the SOCKET signature. This error is actually
1383 :     in the SML Basis specification too.

1413 :     Tag: release-110.60
1414 :     Description:
1415 :    
1416 :     New working release (110.60). NEW BOOTFILES!
1417 :    
1418 :     This is the first subversion-hosted release. There are also changes
1419 :     to the directory layout. Here is a table:
1420 :    
1421 :     (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
1422 :    
1423 :     config -> config
1424 :    
1425 :     src/cm -> base/cm
1426 :     src/compiler -> base/compiler
1427 :     src/runtime -> base/runtime
1428 :     src/system -> base/system
1429 :    
1430 :     src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
1431 :    
1432 :     src/READMES -> base/READMES
1433 :     src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
1434 :     for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
1435 :     MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
1436 :    
1437 :     src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
1438 :     src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
1439 :     ckit -> ckit
1440 :     src/cml -> cml
1441 :     src/eXene -> eXene
1442 :     src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
1443 :     src/lexgen -> lexgen
1444 :     src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
1445 :     src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
1446 :     src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
1447 :     src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
1448 :     src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
1449 :     src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
1450 :     src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
1451 :    
1452 :     In addition, there is also a new
1453 :    
1454 :     ml-lpt
1455 :    
1456 :     directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
1457 :     ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
1458 :     LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
1459 :    
1460 :     The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
1461 :     via subversion. For this, it is useful to first check out
1462 :    
1463 :     svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
1464 :    
1465 :     and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH. This provides
1466 :     access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
1467 :     and refresh-all.sh.
1468 :    
1469 :     To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
1470 :    
1471 :     checkout-all.sh [dir]
1472 :    
1473 :     where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
1474 :    
1475 :     This creates the above directory layout. Each subdirectory of
1476 :     the root is under individual subversion control. The stat-all.sh
1477 :     and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
1478 :     each of these subtrees.
1479 :

1481 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
1482 : blume 2155 Date: 2006/11/02 12:20:00 CST
1483 :     Description:
1484 :    
1485 :     Reorganized directory layout.
1486 :    
1487 :     This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
1488 :    
1489 :     The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
1490 :     to a well-defined part of the overall system. Each part can be
1491 :     maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
1492 :     although currently we still serve everything out of the main
1493 :     smlnj-gforge tree.
1494 :    
1495 :     Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
1496 :     layout. The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
1497 :     "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
1498 :     layout into SML source code. The main script used by the installer
1499 :     is in config/actions.
1500 :    
1501 :     The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
1502 :     be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel. The "src" directory
1503 :     itself has moved down into a subtree called "base". (We may eventually
1504 :     get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
1505 :    
1506 :     The layout is now as follows:
1507 :    
1508 :     toplevel tree name | default repository
1509 :     | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
1510 :     -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
1511 :     config | $gf/config/trunk
1512 :     |
1513 :     base | $gf/sml/trunk
1514 :     |
1515 :     smlnj-lib | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
1516 :     MLRISC | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
1517 :     |
1518 :     ml-yacc | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
1519 :     ml-lex | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
1520 :     ml-burg | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
1521 :     lexgen | $gf/lexgen/trunk
1522 :     heap2asm | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
1523 :     |
1524 :     cml | $gf/cml/trunk
1525 :     eXene | $gf/eXene/trunk
1526 :     ckit | $gf/ckit/trunk
1527 :     nlffi | $gf/nlffi/trunk
1528 :     |
1529 :     smlnj-c | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
1530 :    
1531 :     In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
1532 :     and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
1533 :    
1534 :     admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
1535 :     -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their
1536 :     default repositories; if dir is missing, checkout into .
1537 :     admin/refresh-all.sh [dir]
1538 :     -- looks at all trees (from the above list) in dir (default: .)
1539 :     and runs "svn update" if the tree exists and is under
1540 :     subversion control;
1541 :     non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
1542 :     admin/stat-all.sh [dir]
1543 :     -- like refresh-all.sh, but runs "svn stat" instead

1723 :     Description:
1724 :    
1725 :     Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work. This is fixed
1726 :     now. (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
1727 : blume 2155 at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
1728 : mblume 1878 be referred to by another name. In 110.57 this would be
1729 :     $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm. I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1730 :     to be valid as well.)
1731 :    
1732 :     Thanks to Todd Wilson (Fresno) for alerting me to this issue.

1785 :     Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
1786 :     Description:
1787 :    
1788 :     Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm. This
1789 :     file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
1790 :     run of CMB.make. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
1791 :     it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
1792 :     $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
1793 :     the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
1794 :     might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
1795 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
1796 :     compiler itself uses.)
1797 :    
1798 :     Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
1799 :     bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

1804 :     Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
1805 :     Description:
1806 :    
1807 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
1808 :     the system:
1809 :    
1810 :     $/basis.cm
1811 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
1812 :     $/pp-lib.cm
1813 :     $/controls-lib.cm
1814 :     $/html-lib.cm
1815 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1816 :    
1817 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
1818 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
1819 :    
1820 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
1821 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
1822 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
1823 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
1824 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1825 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1826 :    
1827 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
1828 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
1829 :     their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above). In other
1830 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
1831 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
1832 :    
1833 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
1834 :     MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
1835 :     cleanup on this code.
1836 :    
1837 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
1838 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
1839 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

2019 :     Description:
2020 :    
2021 :     Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
2022 :     after configuration variables have been changed.
2023 :    
2024 :     CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
2025 :    
2026 :     This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
2027 : blume 2155 heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
2028 : mblume 1792 restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
2029 :     CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
2030 :     Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
2031 :    
2032 :     Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
2033 :     the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
2034 :     the heap image generation code in the boot code.

2125 :     PPC/MacOS implementation is complete, the other backends still need to
2126 :     be updated.)

2133 :    
2134 :     Minor cleanup in ML-Yacc rule printing mechanism. This should fix a
2135 :     problem with certain "as" patterns which previously got rendered
2136 :     using incorrect syntax.

2150 :     Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
2151 :     Description:
2152 :    
2153 :     Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility. This is
2154 :     tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
2155 :     It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
2156 :    
2157 :     - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
2158 :    
2159 :     To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
2160 :     config/targets prior to installation. (Notice that this is different
2161 :     from "heap2exec" mentioned below. Not a typo.)
2162 :    
2163 :     To perform an actual test, run the command
2164 :    
2165 :     $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
2166 :    
2167 :     (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
2168 :    
2169 :     For example, run
2170 :    
2171 :     $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
2172 :    
2173 :     This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
2174 :     then invoke directly as a command.

2200 :     data structure access seems to work.)
2201 :    
2202 :     * Fixed CM's incorrect assumption that the PPC is little-endian.
2203 :     (On the Mac, it is big-endian. And that's currently our only
2204 :     PPC platform.)

2319 :     Tag: blume-20041124-position
2320 :     Description:
2321 :    
2322 :     The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
2323 :     equal to Int64. The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
2324 :     for the time being.
2325 :    
2326 :     To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
2327 :    
2328 :     1. Start sml
2329 :     2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
2330 :     3. Type
2331 :     #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
2332 :     4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
2333 :    
2334 :     This is barely tested. The only test so far was a little SML program
2335 :     counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
2336 :     reading it character-by-character. That test was successful.
2337 :    
2338 :     In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
2339 :     added to the runtime system.

2383 :     The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
2384 :    
2385 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
2386 :     translated. In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
2387 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
2388 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are
2389 :     the new int64 and word64 types.

2406 :     All the pieces of Word64 are now there, with the exception of the
2407 :     conversions from and to LargeWord. (Eventually these need to be identities,
2408 :     but for the time being they don't even make sense because LargeWord is
2409 :     32-bit wide.)
2410 :    
2411 :     Also started to add similar support for Int64, but major pieces of that
2412 :     are still missing.

2417 :     Tag: blume-20041111-word64
2418 :     Description:
2419 :    
2420 :     Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
2421 :     seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
2422 :     I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
2423 :     at the moment.
2424 :    
2425 :     Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64. But
2426 :     this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
2427 :     go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
2428 :     worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
2429 :     simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

2464 :     - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
2465 :     - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
2466 :     normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
2467 :    
2468 :     (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
2469 :     config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

2510 :     Description:
2511 :    
2512 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
2513 :     programs. Here is how it works:
2514 :    
2515 :     1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
2516 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
2517 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
2518 :     main program could be modified from something like
2519 :    
2520 :     fun main (pgm, args) = ...
2521 :    
2522 :     to
2523 :    
2524 :     fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
2525 :    
2526 :     2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
2527 :     library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
2528 :     main function.
2529 :    
2530 :     3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
2531 :     CM might have created in the past for your project).
2532 :    
2533 :     4. Build the system using this command line:
2534 :    
2535 :     ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
2536 :     myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2537 :    
2538 :     instead of the usual
2539 :    
2540 :     ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2541 :    
2542 :     I changed a library name:
2543 :    
2544 :     $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
2545 :    
2546 :     New libraries:
2547 :    
2548 :     $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
2549 :     -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
2550 :     $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
2551 :     -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed
2552 :

2566 :     Tag: blume-20041015-coverage
2567 :     Description:
2568 :    
2569 :     * Test coverage tool added!
2570 :     * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
2571 :    
2572 :     - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
2573 :     library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2574 :     - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
2575 :     - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
2576 :     - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
2577 :     - Coverage module is another such plugin
2578 :    
2579 :     To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
2580 :     question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on. This
2581 :     can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
2582 :     (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
2583 :    
2584 :     Plugins are selected at link time. (Pre-compiled instrumented code
2585 :     can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.) When an
2586 :     instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
2587 :     enabled will come into effect for that module.
2588 :    
2589 :     To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2590 :     and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
2591 :     To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
2592 :     Coverage.install().
2593 :    
2594 :     Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
2595 :     when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
2596 :    
2597 :     Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
2598 :     explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

2613 :     Description:
2614 :    
2615 :     Some rationalization of names:
2616 :    
2617 :     structure BTrace -> structure TDPInstrument
2618 :     etc.
2619 :    
2620 :     This is is preparation of using the original back-trace
2621 :     instrumentation for other purposes. "TDP" stands for
2622 :     Trace/Debug/Profile.
2623 :    
2624 :     The control flag controlling whether instrumentation is on or off is now
2625 :     registered under a different name, so instead of running sml as
2626 :    
2627 :     sml -Cinstrument.btrace-mode=true

2647 :     Description:
2648 :    
2649 :     Fixed handling of keywords in .cm files: After seeing "is" the lexer
2650 :     treats subsequent occurrences of "group", "library", "source", "is",
2651 :     "*", and "-" as ordinary identifiers rather than keywords.
2652 :    
2653 :     Most seriously, this fixes a problem with CM's "shell" tool. The tool
2654 :     is supposed to accept a tool argument called "source", but this did
2655 :     not work because of the clash with the keyword.

2668 :     - simplified tokentable implementation

2687 :     Description:

2691 :     CMB.make, the release number gets bumped twice when slaves are
2692 :     attached. I don't know if this is worth fixing...)

2698 :     Description:
2699 :    
2700 :     * Moved the "version" magic into its own little library under
2701 : mblume 1672 src/system/smlnj/internal. This avoids expensive reconstruction of
2702 :     a stable src/compiler/core.cm.
2703 : mblume 1639
2704 : mblume 1672 * At the same time, structure CompilerVersion is now known as
2705 :     structure SMLNJVersion.
2706 : mblume 1639
2707 :     * Arranged for the version tool to NOT kick in when rebuilding the system
2708 :     (makeml -rebuild, fixpt). Otherwise one would never reach a fixpoint.
2709 :     Also, loading the versiontool does not work when rebuilding the system
2710 :     because CM is not properly initialized at that time.

2715 :     Tag: blume-20040929-autoversion
2716 :     Description:
2717 :    
2718 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
2719 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
2720 :     generated automagically.
2721 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
2722 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
2723 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
2724 :    
2725 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
2726 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
2727 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
2728 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
2729 :    
2730 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
2731 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
2732 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
2733 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
2734 :    
2735 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.
2736 :     (This is the date that is printed in the banner.)

2749 :     Tag: blume-20040927-controls
2750 :     Description:
2751 :    
2752 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
2753 :    
2754 :     1. val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
2755 :    
2756 :     grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
2757 :     in stage 2.
2758 :    
2759 :     2. val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
2760 :    
2761 :     stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
2762 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
2763 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
2764 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
2765 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
2766 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
2767 :    
2768 :     Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
2769 :     "lazysml":
2770 :     - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
2771 :     old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
2772 :     - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
2773 :     (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

2778 :     Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
2779 :     Description:
2780 :    
2781 :     Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest. The only
2782 :     difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
2783 :     set to true. A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
2784 :     by a file name suffix of ".lml".
2785 :    
2786 :     In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
2787 :     supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect. As a
2788 :     result, the following three lines are equivalent:
2789 :    
2790 :     foo.sml : lazysml
2791 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
2792 :     foo.sml (lazy)
2793 :    
2794 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
2795 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
2796 :     after compilation, respectively.
2797 :    
2798 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
2799 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
2800 :     "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "lazy"
2801 :     apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
2802 :     the general mechanism.)
2803 :    
2804 :     The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
2805 :     There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
2806 :    
2807 :     foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
2808 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
2809 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
2810 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
2811 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
2812 :    
2813 :     etc.
2814 :    
2815 :     Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
2816 :     if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
2817 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
2818 :    
2819 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
2820 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
2821 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
2822 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

3174 :     Description:
3175 :    
3176 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
3177 :     recent Basis spec.
3178 :    
3179 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
3180 :    
3181 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
3182 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
3183 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
3184 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
3185 :    
3186 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
3187 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
3188 :     stream in proc after all...
3189 :    
3190 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
3191 :    
3192 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
3193 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
3194 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
3195 :     file descriptors directly.
3196 :    
3197 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
3198 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
3199 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

3213 :     Description:
3214 :    
3215 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
3216 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
3217 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
3218 : mblume 1505 "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
3219 : mblume 1498 library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
3220 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
3221 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
3222 :     library.
3223 :    
3224 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
3225 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
3226 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
3227 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
3228 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
3229 :     cause real problems.

3253 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.

3281 :    
3282 :     Hi,
3283 :    
3284 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
3285 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
3286 :    
3287 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
3288 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
3289 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
3290 :     110.45 installation.
3291 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
3292 :    
3293 : blume 2155 The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
3294 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
3295 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
3296 : mblume 1490 are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
3297 :    
3298 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
3299 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
3300 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
3301 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
3302 : blume 2155 that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
3303 : mblume 1490 familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
3304 :    
3305 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
3306 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
3307 :     of these functions is

3309 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
3310 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
3311 :    
3312 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
3313 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
3314 :     report an error upwards.
3315 :    
3316 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
3317 : blume 2155 the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
3318 : mblume 1490 Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
3319 :     when the process finishes.
3320 :    
3321 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
3322 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
3323 :    
3324 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
3325 :    
3326 : blume 2155 We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy

3413 :    
3414 : blume 2155 does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
3415 :     such as 'malloc' during linking. We fixed this by explicitly

3423 : blume 2155 I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to

3552 :     Description:
3553 :    
3554 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
3555 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
3556 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
3557 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
3558 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
3559 :    
3560 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
3561 :     implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
3562 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
3563 :    
3564 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
3565 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
3566 : mblume 1394 be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
3567 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
3568 : mblume 1393 "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
3569 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
3570 :     names in the current environment.)

3576 :     Description:
3577 :    
3578 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
3579 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
3580 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
3581 :    
3582 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
3583 :    
3584 :     and everything happens automagically.
3585 :    
3586 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
3587 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
3588 :     and BINDIR.
3589 :    
3590 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
3591 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
3592 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

3609 :     Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
3610 :     Description:
3611 :    
3612 :     1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
3613 :     This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
3614 :     that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
3615 :     blocking or non-blocking. This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
3616 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
3617 :    
3618 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
3619 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
3620 :     between Unix and Win32.
3621 :    
3622 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
3623 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
3624 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
3625 :    
3626 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
3627 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
3628 :     of CML.
3629 :    
3630 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

3742 :     Tag: blume-20030909-installer
3743 :     Description:
3744 :    
3745 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
3746 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
3747 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
3748 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
3749 :     independent.)
3750 :    
3751 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
3752 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
3753 :    
3754 :     Other changes:
3755 :    
3756 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
3757 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
3758 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
3759 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
3760 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
3761 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
3762 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
3763 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
3764 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

3770 :     Description:
3771 :    
3772 :     Made Win32 version of OS.FileSys.fullPath return current directory
3773 :     when given an empty string. This is what the spec says, and incidentally,
3774 :     CM depends on it. (CM otherwise goes into an infinite loop in certain
3775 :     cases when presented with the name of a non-existing .cm file.)

3780 : mblume 1352 Tag: blume-20030905-slices-etc
3781 : mblume 1350 Description:
3782 :    
3783 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
3784 :     (draft) Basis spec.
3785 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
3786 :     Basis spec.
3787 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
3788 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
3789 :     match the new signatures.)
3790 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
3791 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
3792 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
3793 :     appropriate.
3794 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
3795 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
3796 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
3797 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
3798 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
3799 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
3800 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
3801 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
3802 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
3803 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
3804 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
3805 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
3806 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
3807 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
3808 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
3809 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
3810 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
3811 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
3812 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
3813 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
3814 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
3815 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
3816 :     ArraySlice).

3821 :     Tag: blume-20030828-intinf
3822 :     Description:
3823 :    
3824 :     This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
3825 :     (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
3826 :     and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
3827 :    
3828 :     There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
3829 :     the system:
3830 :    
3831 :     Basis:
3832 :     - Implemented IntInf.
3833 :     - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
3834 : mblume 1348 - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
3835 : mblume 1347 - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
3836 :    
3837 :     compiler:
3838 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
3839 :     - literals
3840 :     - pattern matching
3841 :     - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
3842 :     - overloading on literals and operations
3843 :    
3844 :     This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
3845 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
3846 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
3847 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
3848 :    
3849 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
3850 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
3851 :     is the right thing to do there).
3852 :    
3853 :     * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
3854 :    
3855 :     * A word about conversion primops:
3856 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
3857 : mblume 1348 CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
3858 : mblume 1347 Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
3859 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
3860 : mblume 1348 to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
3861 : mblume 1347 for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
3862 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
3863 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
3864 : mblume 1348 eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
3865 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
3866 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
3867 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
3868 : mblume 1347
3869 :     interactive system:
3870 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
3871 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
3872 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
3873 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
3874 :     use of library functionality.
3875 :    
3876 :     CM:
3877 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
3878 :     are no longer silent.
3879 :    
3880 :     CKIT:
3881 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
3882 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
3883 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
3884 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
3885 :     FixedInt.
3886 :    
3887 :     Throughout the code:
3888 : mblume 1348 Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
3889 : mblume 1347 (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

3898 :     Merging changes from the mcz-branch development branch into trunk.
3899 :     These changes involve replacement of the emulated old prettyprinter
3900 :     interface with direct use of the SML/NJ Lib PP library, and fixing
3901 :     of a couple of bugs (895, 1186) relating to error messages. A new

3908 :     Tag: blume-20030811-windows
3909 :     Description:
3910 :    
3911 :     Version number bumped to 110.42.9. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
3912 :    
3913 :     http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
3914 :    
3915 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a
3916 :     number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
3917 :     unnoticed until now:
3918 :    
3919 :     - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
3920 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
3921 :    
3922 :     - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
3923 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
3924 :    
3925 :     - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly. The main
3926 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
3927 :     using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
3928 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
3929 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
3930 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
3931 :    
3932 :     - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
3933 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
3934 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
3935 :    
3936 :     - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
3937 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
3938 :    
3939 :     standard!
3940 :    
3941 :     into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
3942 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
3943 :    
3944 :     native!
3945 :    
3946 :     switches back to native style. This was needed so that
3947 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
3948 :    
3949 :     - Runtime system:
3950 :    
3951 :     - win32-filesys.c: get_file_time and set_file_time now
3952 :     access modification time, not creation time.
3953 :    
3954 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
3955 :    
3956 :     - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
3957 :    
3958 :     - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
3959 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
3960 :    
3961 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
3962 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
3963 :    
3964 :     .bat scripts:
3965 :    
3966 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
3967 :    
3968 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
3969 :     applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
3970 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
3971 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
3972 :     that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
3973 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
3974 :     Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
3975 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
3976 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
3977 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
3978 :     It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc. No other
3979 :     libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
3980 :     are part of the compiler.)
3981 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
3982 :    
3983 :     Unrelated bug fixes:
3984 :    
3985 :     - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
3986 :     types.
3987 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
3988 :     otherwise.)

4012 :     Description:
4013 :    
4014 :     Two changes:
4015 :    
4016 :     1. Added a flag for controlling whether non-exhaustive bindings will
4017 :     be treated as errors (default is false).
4018 :     2. Cleaned up the *entire* source tree so that CMB.make goes through

4025 :     Description:
4026 :    
4027 :     1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
4028 :    
4029 :     This mainly affects the quality of error messages. However, some
4030 :     of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
4031 :     the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
4032 :     the "macro-expansion" that was going on before. Plus, the mach-
4033 :     compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
4034 :     if-expression.)
4035 :    
4036 :     2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
4037 :     interactive loop.

4050 :     o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
4051 :     o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.

4055 :     http://www.dorsai.org/~leunga/boot.x86-unix.tgz
4056 :    
4057 :     This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.

4096 :     Description:
4097 :    
4098 :     Added a call of SrcPath.sync at the beginning of Parse.parse (in CM).
4099 :     This fixes the problem of CM getting confused by files that suddenly
4100 :     change their identity (e.g., by getting unlinked and recreated by some
4101 :     text editor such as vi). There might be a better/cheaper/cleaner way
4102 :     of doing this, but for now this will have to do.

4116 :     Description:
4117 :    
4118 : blume 1282 In good old tradition, there has been a slight hiccup so that we have
4119 :     to patch 110.42 after the fact. The old release tag has been replaced
4120 :     (see below).
4121 :    
4122 :     The change solves a problem with two competing approaches the
4123 :     configuration problem regarding MacOS 10.1 vs. MacOS 10.2 which got in
4124 :     each other's way.
4125 :    
4126 :     This change only affects the runtime system code and the installer script.
4127 :     (No new bootfiles.)

4141 :     Description:
4142 :    
4143 :     The mltree operator DIVS must be implemented with an overflow check on
4144 :     the PPC because the hardware indicates divide-by-zero using "overflow" as
4145 :     well.

4150 :     Tag: blume-20020723-smlnj-home
4151 :     Description:
4152 :    
4153 :     Sml now senses the SMLNJ_HOME environment variable. If this is set,
4154 :     then the bin dir is assumed to be in $SMLNJ_HOME/bin and (unless
4155 :     CM_PATHCONFIG is also set), the path configuration file is assumed
4156 :     to be in $SMLNJ_HOME/lib/pathconfig. This way one can easily move
4157 :     the entire tree to some other place and everything will "just work".
4158 :    
4159 :     (Companion commands such as ml-build and ml-makedepend also sense this
4160 :     variable.)
