917 :    
918 :     - Aaron: fixed a number of bugs in ml-ulex.
919 :     - Matthias:
920 :     - added CM control "cm.force-tools"; this is false by default;
921 :     when set to true, then tools like ml-yacc, ml-lex, ml-ulex, etc.
922 :     will be forced to run regardless of whether or not their targets
923 :     are up-to-date
924 :     - changed installer code so that config/install.sh will re-build
925 :     heap images for all tools even if those heap images already existed

933 :     in legacy mode), re-ran the lexer generator on all lex input files
934 :     and committed the results.
935 :

951 :     Description:
952 :    
953 :     3rd merge of base from primop-branch-3 into the trunk.
954 :     Additional bug fixes included:
955 :    
956 :     * Timer.cpu_timer, etc. type printing corrected (by making
957 :     Timer have opaque sig constraint in basis/Implementation/timer.sml)
958 :     * Infinite loop in FLINT (tests/typing/tests/25.sml) (fix by

964 :     Description:
965 :    
966 :     Fixed some bugs in new Div code in FLINT/trans/translate.sml.
967 :    
968 :     Also, changed the handling of "no core access": When translate.sml
969 :     needs access to a core exception at a time when the core has not
970 :     been set up yet (this only happens when compiling system/smlnj/init/*),
971 :     then don't bother generating the corresponding tests.
972 :    
973 : dbm 2650 The old scheme was to generate a bogus value to be used in place of
974 :     the exception. Unfortunately, that confuses the plambda type checker.
975 :     Moreover, it does not do any good, because at runtime we don't expect
976 :     such an exception to be ever raised. (The code in system/smlnj/init/*
977 :     has to be written very carefully with this in mind!)

989 :     Description:
990 :    
991 :     FLINT/trans/translate.sml now wraps all DIV/MOD/QUOT/REM operations
992 :     with an explicit test for zero division. This should fixes several
993 :     regressions and makes it possible for downstream optimization phases
994 :     to treat these operations as "pure" when they are applied to unsigned

1001 :    
1002 :     Added the new MLRISC code generator for the AMD64. This version,

1010 :    
1011 : jhr 2617 A number of fixes related to the formatting of dates. These include fixes
1012 :     for bugs #1415 and #1416. We also now correctly handle format characters that

1017 :     Date: 2007/05/23 22:30:00 CDT
1018 :     Description:
1019 :    
1020 :     CMB (and CM) now automatically defines the CM "preprocessor" symbol
1021 :     NO_PLUGINS during "makeml -rebuild" or when CM operates in "slave" mode.
1022 :    
1023 :     (In addition, CMB_REBUILD_MODE is defined for makeml -rebuild,
1024 :     CM_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves while running CM.make
1025 :     or CM.rebuild, and CMB_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves
1026 :     while running CMB.make. The point is that the single symbol
1027 :     NO_PLUGINS is definde in all three cases.)
1028 :    
1029 :     I changed the three locations within the sources that get compiled
1030 :     during CMB.make where ml-yacc or ml-lex input is processed: When
1031 :     NO_PLUGINS defined, then the use of the mlyacc and mllex tools
1032 :     is bypassed.
1033 :    
1034 :     When bootstrapping new versions of the compiler, there can be
1035 :     situations where the plugin tools for ml-yacc and ml-lex (or ml-ulex)
1036 :     are not available or otherwise not operational. In this case one can
1037 :     manually define the NO_PLUGINS symbol prior to running CMB.make(). To
1038 :     do so, the following command should be issued at the interactive
1039 :     prompt:
1040 :    
1041 :     #set (CMB.symval "NO_PLUGINS") (SOME 1);
1042 :    
1043 :     A CMB.make with NO_PLUGINS defined relies on the existence of the
1044 :     files that normally would be generated by ml-yacc and ml-lex.
1045 :     (Copies of these files are in the repository.)

1061 :     Description:
1062 :    
1063 :     Changed the installation mechanism for CM tool plugins. These are
1064 :     just libaries and now get installed like ordinary libaries.
1065 :    
1066 :     There are now a number of new installation targets that give some
1067 :     fine-grain control over what classes and suffixes are known, and what
1068 :     they will map to.
1069 :     See config/targets for details.
1070 :    
1071 :     The code that caused plugin installation as part of running a
1072 :     tool's "build" script has been removed. (The build script is for
1073 :     building, not for installing.)

1078 :     Description:
1079 :    
1080 :     Added a boolean control named cm.tolerate-tool-failures (env. variable
1081 :     name: CM_TOLERATE_TOOL_FAILURES). The default is false and makes
1082 :     CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status. If
1083 :     the control is set to true, then CM will press on after tool failures
1084 :     in the event that the target files exist (even though they are
1085 :     considered outdated). Turning the control to true can be useful for
1086 :     bootstrapping.

1091 :     Description:
1092 :    
1093 :     Merge of ml-lpt revisions for 110.64.
1094 :    
1095 :     The name of several ml-lpt-lib modules has changed:
1096 :     Repair => AntlrRepair
1097 :     StreamPos => AntlrStreamPos
1098 :     ErrHandlerFn => AntlrErrHandler
1099 :     EBNF => AntlrEBNF
1100 :    
1101 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1102 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1103 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1104 :     extends the previous ones. This does not apply to %start or %name,
1105 :     of course.
1106 :    
1107 :     Importing a grammar via %import now includes *all* declarations in from
1108 :     the imported grammar, except for %name, %entry, and %start. Tokens
1109 :     and nonterminals can be dropped using the new %dropping clause of the
1110 :     %import directive; the separate %drop and %extend have been removed.
1111 :    
1112 :     We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the %nonterms
1113 :     directive as in ml-yacc.
1114 :    
1115 :     The refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1116 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.
1117 :    
1118 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1119 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. Error repair for
1120 :     generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
1121 :     much faster and more accurate.
1122 :    
1123 :     ml-ulex is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
1124 :     escape codes are now interpreted literally, so e.g. \| denotes "|").
1125 :     Also, character classes may now include a "-" character at the beginning
1126 :     as is standard in most other regexp tools.
1127 :    
1128 :     All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
1129 :     been updated and improved with this merge.

1135 :     Description:
1136 :    
1137 :     Merge of the primop3 branch (base) into the trunk to create 110.63.1.
1138 :     Significant changes in FLINT and the front end, mostly having to do
1139 :     with a reorganized system for handling primops. Various bug fixes
1140 :     and improvements in printing signatures.

1145 :     Description:
1146 :    
1147 :     Preliminary commit of large ml-lpt revisions (more to come for 110.64).
1148 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1149 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1150 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1151 :     extends the previous ones. Grammar extension constructs have also
1152 :     changed. We now allow type annotations on nonterminals. Finally,
1153 :     the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1154 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated. All of these
1155 :     changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for ml-lpt.
1156 :    
1157 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1158 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. There has also been
1159 :     some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this
1160 :     will be further improved in 110.64.

1166 :    
1167 :     More Basis fixes: The Char.fromString (etc.) functions did not handle
1168 :     the "\uxxxx" escape sequence. There is still an outstanding bug with
1169 :     String.fromString the tail is a format escape. I added a comment to

1321 :     Date: 2007/01/31
1322 :     Description:
1323 :    
1324 :     Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code. Many minor
1325 :     improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes. Prepared
1326 :     ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure. Changed
1327 :     the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
1328 :     stream creation from several kinds of sources). Overall, the
1329 :     tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
1330 :     change in a way that would break compatibility. More work,
1331 :     however, is needed in the documentation.

1336 :     Description:
1337 :    
1338 :     Implemented library installer. Moved CM plugin code for
1339 :     ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
1340 :     their respective trees. Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
1341 :     and ml-antlr. Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
1342 :     and ml-antlr.
1343 :    
1344 :     For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
1345 :     CM tools. (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
1346 :     there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
1347 :     of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)

1351 : blume 2277 Date: 2007/01/30 11:05:00 CST
1352 :     Description:
1353 :    
1354 :     Added SMLofNJ.shiftArgs which is like a shell's "shift" command.
1355 :     Modified CM's startup code to use shiftArgs as it processes
1356 :     command line arguments. This way, the init code in each .sml-file
1357 :     or library that is mentioned at the top level will see only
1358 :     those arguments that have not yet been processed at this point.
1359 :     In other words, the init code can "seize control" and process the
1360 :     remaining command line.

1417 :    
1418 :     Fixed the code in runtime/c-libs/posix-tty/{tcgetattr,tcsetattr}.c to

1427 :     Description:
1428 :    
1429 :     Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
1430 :     causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
1431 :     command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
1432 :     as long as all target files exist.
1433 :    
1434 :     This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
1435 :     svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
1436 :     yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig. (Ml-yacc would
1437 :     be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
1438 :     available at that time.)

1444 :    
1445 :     Fixed the types of recvVecFrom, recvVecFrom', recvVecFromNB, and
1446 :     recvVecFromNB' in the SOCKET signature. This error is actually
1447 :     in the SML Basis specification too.

1477 :     Tag: release-110.60
1478 :     Description:
1479 :    
1480 :     New working release (110.60). NEW BOOTFILES!
1481 :    
1482 :     This is the first subversion-hosted release. There are also changes
1483 :     to the directory layout. Here is a table:
1484 :    
1485 :     (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
1486 :    
1487 :     config -> config
1488 :    
1489 :     src/cm -> base/cm
1490 :     src/compiler -> base/compiler
1491 :     src/runtime -> base/runtime
1492 :     src/system -> base/system
1493 :    
1494 :     src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
1495 :    
1496 :     src/READMES -> base/READMES
1497 :     src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
1498 :     for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
1499 :     MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
1500 :    
1501 :     src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
1502 :     src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
1503 :     ckit -> ckit
1504 :     src/cml -> cml
1505 :     src/eXene -> eXene
1506 :     src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
1507 :     src/lexgen -> lexgen
1508 :     src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
1509 :     src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
1510 :     src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
1511 :     src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
1512 :     src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
1513 :     src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
1514 :     src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
1515 :    
1516 :     In addition, there is also a new
1517 :    
1518 :     ml-lpt
1519 :    
1520 :     directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
1521 :     ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
1522 :     LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
1523 :    
1524 :     The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
1525 :     via subversion. For this, it is useful to first check out
1526 :    
1527 :     svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
1528 :    
1529 :     and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH. This provides
1530 :     access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
1531 :     and refresh-all.sh.
1532 :    
1533 :     To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
1534 :    
1535 :     checkout-all.sh [dir]
1536 :    
1537 :     where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
1538 :    
1539 :     This creates the above directory layout. Each subdirectory of
1540 :     the root is under individual subversion control. The stat-all.sh
1541 :     and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
1542 :     each of these subtrees.

1545 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
1546 : blume 2155 Date: 2006/11/02 12:20:00 CST
1547 :     Description:
1548 :    
1549 :     Reorganized directory layout.
1550 :    
1551 :     This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
1552 :    
1553 :     The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
1554 :     to a well-defined part of the overall system. Each part can be
1555 :     maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
1556 :     although currently we still serve everything out of the main
1557 :     smlnj-gforge tree.
1558 :    
1559 :     Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
1560 :     layout. The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
1561 :     "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
1562 :     layout into SML source code. The main script used by the installer
1563 :     is in config/actions.
1564 :    
1565 :     The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
1566 :     be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel. The "src" directory
1567 :     itself has moved down into a subtree called "base". (We may eventually
1568 :     get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
1569 :    
1570 :     The layout is now as follows:
1571 :    
1572 :     toplevel tree name | default repository
1573 :     | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
1574 :     -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
1575 :     config | $gf/config/trunk
1576 :     |
1577 :     base | $gf/sml/trunk
1578 :     |
1579 :     smlnj-lib | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
1580 :     MLRISC | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
1581 :     |
1582 :     ml-yacc | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
1583 :     ml-lex | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
1584 :     ml-burg | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
1585 :     lexgen | $gf/lexgen/trunk
1586 :     heap2asm | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
1587 :     |
1588 :     cml | $gf/cml/trunk
1589 :     eXene | $gf/eXene/trunk
1590 :     ckit | $gf/ckit/trunk
1591 :     nlffi | $gf/nlffi/trunk
1592 :     |
1593 :     smlnj-c | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
1594 :    
1595 :     In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
1596 :     and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
1597 :    
1598 :     admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
1599 :     -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their
1600 :     default repositories; if dir is missing, checkout into .
1601 :     admin/refresh-all.sh [dir]
1602 :     -- looks at all trees (from the above list) in dir (default: .)
1603 :     and runs "svn update" if the tree exists and is under
1604 :     subversion control;
1605 :     non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
1606 :     admin/stat-all.sh [dir]
1607 :     -- like refresh-all.sh, but runs "svn stat" instead

1754 :    
1755 :     Hooked code for Darwin-specific Intel ABI into main compiler.
1756 :     (This is a temporary solution which relies on the fact that the
1757 :     compiler itself does not use NLFFI. Eventually we need to divorce
1758 :     intel mac from generic x86 unix code and make separate sets of binaries.)

1787 :     Description:
1788 :    
1789 :     Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work. This is fixed
1790 :     now. (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
1791 : blume 2155 at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
1792 : mblume 1878 be referred to by another name. In 110.57 this would be
1793 :     $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm. I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1794 :     to be valid as well.)

1849 :     Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
1850 :     Description:
1851 :    
1852 :     Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm. This
1853 :     file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
1854 :     run of CMB.make. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
1855 :     it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
1856 :     $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
1857 :     the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
1858 :     might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
1859 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
1860 :     compiler itself uses.)
1861 :    
1862 :     Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
1863 :     bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

1868 :     Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
1869 :     Description:
1870 :    
1871 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
1872 :     the system:
1873 :    
1874 :     $/basis.cm
1875 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
1876 :     $/pp-lib.cm
1877 :     $/controls-lib.cm
1878 :     $/html-lib.cm
1879 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1880 :    
1881 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
1882 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
1883 :    
1884 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
1885 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
1886 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
1887 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
1888 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1889 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1890 :    
1891 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
1892 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
1893 :     their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above). In other
1894 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
1895 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
1896 :    
1897 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
1898 :     MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
1899 :     cleanup on this code.
1900 :    
1901 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
1902 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
1903 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

2083 :     Description:
2084 :    
2085 :     Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
2086 :     after configuration variables have been changed.
2087 :    
2088 :     CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
2089 :    
2090 :     This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
2091 : blume 2155 heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
2092 : mblume 1792 restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
2093 :     CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
2094 :     Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
2095 :    
2096 :     Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
2097 :     the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes

2215 :     Description:
2216 :    
2217 :     Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility. This is
2218 :     tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
2219 :     It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
2220 :    
2221 :     - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
2222 :    
2223 :     To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
2224 :     config/targets prior to installation. (Notice that this is different
2225 :     from "heap2exec" mentioned below. Not a typo.)
2226 :    
2227 :     To perform an actual test, run the command
2228 :    
2229 :     $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
2230 :    
2231 :     (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
2232 :    
2233 :     For example, run
2234 :    
2235 :     $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
2236 :    
2237 :     This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
2238 :     then invoke directly as a command.

2383 :     Tag: blume-20041124-position
2384 :     Description:
2385 :    
2386 :     The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
2387 :     equal to Int64. The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
2388 :     for the time being.
2389 :    
2390 :     To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
2391 :    
2392 :     1. Start sml
2393 :     2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
2394 :     3. Type
2395 :     #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
2396 :     4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
2397 :    
2398 :     This is barely tested. The only test so far was a little SML program
2399 :     counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
2400 :     reading it character-by-character. That test was successful.
2401 :    
2402 :     In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
2403 :     added to the runtime system.

2448 :    
2449 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
2450 :     translated. In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
2451 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
2452 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are
2453 :     the new int64 and word64 types.

2472 :     but for the time being they don't even make sense because LargeWord is
2473 :     32-bit wide.)
2474 :

2476 :     are still missing.

2482 :     Description:
2483 :    
2484 :     Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
2485 :     seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
2486 :     I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
2487 :     at the moment.
2488 :    
2489 :     Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64. But
2490 :     this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
2491 :     go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
2492 :     worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
2493 :     simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

2508 : mblume 1682 Description:
2509 :

2518 :    
2519 :     New working version (110.50). NEW BOOTFILES!
2520 :    
2521 :     =====================
2522 :    
2523 :     Also:
2524 :    
2525 :     - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just
2526 :     containing the URL string into a file containing
2527 :     shell script code. The code has access to the $VERSION variable.
2528 :     - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
2529 :     - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
2530 :     normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
2531 :    
2532 :     (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
2533 :     config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

2551 :     the x86 c-calls code in MLRISC:
2552 :    
2553 :     - added a missing LOAD in the code that deals with struct arguments
2554 :     - made sure the caller does not add the wrong number of bytes to the
2555 :     stack pointer after a call of a function returning a struct
2556 :     (the callee already pops the implicit argument which points to
2557 :     the space reserved for the result)

2573 :     Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
2574 :     Description:
2575 :    
2576 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
2577 :     programs. Here is how it works:
2578 :    
2579 :     1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
2580 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
2581 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
2582 :     main program could be modified from something like
2583 :    
2584 :     fun main (pgm, args) = ...
2585 :    
2586 :     to
2587 :    
2588 :     fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
2589 :    
2590 :     2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
2591 :     library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
2592 :     main function.
2593 :    
2594 :     3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
2595 :     CM might have created in the past for your project).
2596 :    
2597 :     4. Build the system using this command line:
2598 :    
2599 :     ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
2600 :     myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2601 :    
2602 :     instead of the usual
2603 :    
2604 :     ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2605 :    
2606 :     I changed a library name:
2607 :    
2608 :     $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
2609 :    
2610 :     New libraries:
2611 :    
2612 :     $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
2613 :     -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
2614 :     $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
2615 :     -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

2630 :     Tag: blume-20041015-coverage
2631 :     Description:
2632 :    
2633 :     * Test coverage tool added!
2634 :     * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
2635 :    
2636 :     - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
2637 :     library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2638 :     - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
2639 :     - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
2640 :     - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
2641 :     - Coverage module is another such plugin
2642 :    
2643 :     To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
2644 :     question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on. This
2645 :     can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
2646 :     (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
2647 :    
2648 :     Plugins are selected at link time. (Pre-compiled instrumented code
2649 :     can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.) When an
2650 :     instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
2651 :     enabled will come into effect for that module.
2652 :    
2653 :     To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2654 :     and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
2655 :     To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
2656 :     Coverage.install().
2657 :    
2658 :     Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
2659 :     when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
2660 :    
2661 :     Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
2662 :     explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

2678 :    
2679 :     Some rationalization of names:

2682 :     etc.
2683 :    
2684 :     This is is preparation of using the original back-trace
2685 :     instrumentation for other purposes. "TDP" stands for
2686 :     Trace/Debug/Profile.
2687 :    
2688 :     The control flag controlling whether instrumentation is on or off is now
2689 :     registered under a different name, so instead of running sml as
2690 :    
2691 :     sml -Cinstrument.btrace-mode=true

2714 :     treats subsequent occurrences of "group", "library", "source", "is",
2715 :     "*", and "-" as ordinary identifiers rather than keywords.
2716 :    
2717 :     Most seriously, this fixes a problem with CM's "shell" tool. The tool
2718 :     is supposed to accept a tool argument called "source", but this did
2719 :     not work because of the clash with the keyword.

2770 : mblume 1639
2771 :     * Arranged for the version tool to NOT kick in when rebuilding the system
2772 :     (makeml -rebuild, fixpt). Otherwise one would never reach a fixpoint.
2773 :     Also, loading the versiontool does not work when rebuilding the system
2774 :     because CM is not properly initialized at that time.

2779 :     Tag: blume-20040929-autoversion
2780 :     Description:
2781 :    
2782 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
2783 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
2784 :     generated automagically.
2785 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
2786 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
2787 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
2788 :    
2789 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
2790 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
2791 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
2792 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
2793 :    
2794 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
2795 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
2796 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
2797 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
2798 :    
2799 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.
2800 :     (This is the date that is printed in the banner.)

2813 :     Tag: blume-20040927-controls
2814 :     Description:
2815 :    
2816 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
2817 :    
2818 :     1. val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
2819 :    
2820 :     grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
2821 :     in stage 2.
2822 :    
2823 :     2. val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
2824 :    
2825 :     stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
2826 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
2827 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
2828 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
2829 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
2830 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
2831 :    
2832 :     Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
2833 :     "lazysml":
2834 :     - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
2835 :     old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
2836 :     - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
2837 :     (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

2842 :     Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
2843 :     Description:
2844 :    
2845 :     Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest. The only
2846 :     difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
2847 :     set to true. A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
2848 :     by a file name suffix of ".lml".
2849 :    
2850 :     In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
2851 :     supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect. As a
2852 :     result, the following three lines are equivalent:
2853 :    
2854 :     foo.sml : lazysml
2855 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
2856 :     foo.sml (lazy)
2857 :    
2858 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
2859 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
2860 :     after compilation, respectively.
2861 :    
2862 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
2863 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
2864 :     "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "lazy"
2865 :     apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
2866 :     the general mechanism.)
2867 :    
2868 :     The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
2869 :     There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
2870 :    
2871 :     foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
2872 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
2873 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
2874 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
2875 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
2876 :    
2877 :     etc.
2878 :    
2879 :     Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
2880 :     if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
2881 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
2882 :    
2883 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
2884 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
2885 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
2886 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

3238 :     Description:
3239 :    
3240 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
3241 :     recent Basis spec.
3242 :    
3243 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
3244 :    
3245 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
3246 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
3247 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
3248 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
3249 :    
3250 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
3251 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
3252 :     stream in proc after all...
3253 :    
3254 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
3255 :    
3256 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
3257 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
3258 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
3259 :     file descriptors directly.
3260 :    
3261 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
3262 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
3263 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

3277 :     Description:
3278 :    
3279 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
3280 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
3281 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
3282 : mblume 1505 "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
3283 : mblume 1498 library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
3284 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
3285 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
3286 :     library.
3287 :    
3288 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
3289 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
3290 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
3291 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
3292 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
3293 :     cause real problems.

3311 :     Tag: blume-20040519-ml-build
3312 :     Description:
3313 :    
3314 :     Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
3315 :     The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
3316 :     CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it. It now
3317 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
3318 :    
3319 :     This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the
3320 :     metadata directory (default: .cm) is actually configurable at
3321 :     installation time.

3336 :     Description:
3337 :    
3338 :     Added previously missing support for many socket-related functions
3339 :     under win32. Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
3340 :     for the voluminous patch!
3341 :    
3342 :     (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
3343 :    
3344 : mblume 1490 Here is David's e-mail:
3345 :    
3346 :     Hi,
3347 :    
3348 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
3349 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
3350 :    
3351 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
3352 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
3353 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
3354 :     110.45 installation.
3355 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
3356 :    
3357 : blume 2155 The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
3358 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
3359 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
3360 : mblume 1490 are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
3361 :    
3362 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
3363 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
3364 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
3365 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
3366 : blume 2155 that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
3367 : mblume 1490 familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
3368 :    
3369 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
3370 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
3371 :     of these functions is
3372 :    
3373 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
3374 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
3375 :    
3376 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
3377 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
3378 :     report an error upwards.
3379 :    
3380 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
3381 : blume 2155 the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
3382 : mblume 1490 Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
3383 :     when the process finishes.
3384 :    
3385 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
3386 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
3387 :    
3388 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
3389 :    
3390 : blume 2155 We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
3391 :     with it. I hope this contribution will help you.
3392 : mblume 1490
3393 :     Keep up the good work!

3435 :     code is still only installed for modules that were requested explicitly
3436 :     or which are required for other modules that were requested explicitly.)

3471 :    
3472 :     Fixed the runtime so that ml-nlffi-lib runs on the cygwin version
3473 :     of SML/NJ. The problem is that
3474 :    
3475 :     lib = dlopen(NULL, ...)
3476 :     f = dlsym(lib, "malloc");
3477 :    
3478 : blume 2155 does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
3479 :     such as 'malloc' during linking. We fixed this by explicitly
3480 : allenleung 1468 exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
3481 :    
3482 :     -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
3483 :    
3484 :     where cygwin.def is a file containing all the symbols that
3485 : blume 2155 we wish to export.
3486 : allenleung 1468
3487 : blume 2155 I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
3488 :     do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
3489 : allenleung 1468 we build the native win32 version with the system
3490 : blume 2155 calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

3616 :     Description:
3617 :    
3618 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
3619 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
3620 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
3621 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
3622 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
3623 :    
3624 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
3625 :     implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
3626 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
3627 :    
3628 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
3629 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
3630 : mblume 1394 be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
3631 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
3632 : mblume 1393 "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
3633 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
3634 :     names in the current environment.)

3640 :     Description:
3641 :    
3642 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
3643 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
3644 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
3645 :    
3646 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
3647 :    
3648 :     and everything happens automagically.
3649 :    
3650 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
3651 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
3652 :     and BINDIR.
3653 :    
3654 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
3655 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
3656 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

3673 :     Tag: blume-20030924-sockets
3674 :     Description:
3675 :    
3676 :     1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
3677 :     This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
3678 :     that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
3679 :     blocking or non-blocking. This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
3680 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
3681 :    
3682 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
3683 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
3684 :     between Unix and Win32.
3685 :    
3686 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
3687 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
3688 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
3689 :    
3690 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
3691 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
3692 :     of CML.
3693 :    
3694 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

3711 :     Description:
3712 :    
3713 :     1. new-install.sh -> install.sh
3714 :     2. changed default CM "metadata" directory name to ".cm" (instead of "CM")
3715 :     3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen
3716 :     at install time (by setting the CM_DIR_ARC environment variable
3717 :     during installation); once installation is complete, the name is
3718 :     fixed

3735 :     Description:
3736 :    
3737 :     1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as
3738 :     this seems to be controversial at the moment) and used those in
3739 :     Posix.ProcEnv.times.
3740 :    
3741 :     2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
3742 :    
3743 :     3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.
3744 :     For example, fromLargeInt never needs to look at more than 3 "big
3745 :     digits" to get its 53 bits of precision.

3751 :     Description:
3752 :    
3753 :     Added an entry to the primitive environment
3754 :     (compiler/Semant/statenv/prim.sml) for int32->real64 conversion and
3755 :     added code to compiler/CodeGen/main/mlriscGen.sml to implement it.
3756 :    
3757 :     Removed some of the "magic" constants in real64.sml and replaced them
3758 :     with code that generates these values from their corresponding
3759 :     integer counterparts.
3760 :    
3761 :     Made all(?) the slice-related changes to the Basis and made everything
3762 :     compile again...

3779 :     standalone tool after installing it, otherwise libraries that
3780 :     need ml-lex or ml-yacc won't compile the first time the installer

3806 :     Tag: blume-20030909-installer
3807 :     Description:
3808 :    
3809 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
3810 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
3811 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
3812 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
3813 :     independent.)
3814 :    
3815 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
3816 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
3817 :    
3818 :     Other changes:
3819 :    
3820 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
3821 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
3822 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
3823 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
3824 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
3825 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
3826 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
3827 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
3828 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

3834 :     Description:
3835 :    
3836 :     Made Win32 version of OS.FileSys.fullPath return current directory
3837 :     when given an empty string. This is what the spec says, and incidentally,
3838 :     CM depends on it. (CM otherwise goes into an infinite loop in certain
3839 :     cases when presented with the name of a non-existing .cm file.)

3844 : mblume 1352 Tag: blume-20030905-slices-etc
3845 : mblume 1350 Description:
3846 :    
3847 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
3848 :     (draft) Basis spec.
3849 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
3850 :     Basis spec.
3851 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
3852 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
3853 :     match the new signatures.)
3854 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
3855 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
3856 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
3857 :     appropriate.
3858 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
3859 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
3860 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
3861 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
3862 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
3863 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
3864 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
3865 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
3866 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
3867 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
3868 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
3869 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
3870 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
3871 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
3872 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
3873 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
3874 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
3875 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
3876 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
3877 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
3878 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
3879 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
3880 :     ArraySlice).

3885 :     Tag: blume-20030828-intinf
3886 :     Description:
3887 :    
3888 :     This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
3889 :     (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
3890 :     and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
3891 :    
3892 :     There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
3893 :     the system:
3894 :    
3895 :     Basis:
3896 :     - Implemented IntInf.
3897 :     - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
3898 : mblume 1348 - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
3899 : mblume 1347 - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
3900 :    
3901 :     compiler:
3902 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
3903 :     - literals
3904 :     - pattern matching
3905 :     - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
3906 :     - overloading on literals and operations
3907 :    
3908 :     This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
3909 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
3910 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
3911 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
3912 :    
3913 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
3914 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
3915 :     is the right thing to do there).
3916 :    
3917 :     * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
3918 :    
3919 :     * A word about conversion primops:
3920 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
3921 : mblume 1348 CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
3922 : mblume 1347 Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
3923 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
3924 : mblume 1348 to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
3925 : mblume 1347 for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
3926 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
3927 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
3928 : mblume 1348 eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
3929 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
3930 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
3931 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
3932 : mblume 1347
3933 :     interactive system:
3934 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
3935 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
3936 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
3937 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
3938 :     use of library functionality.
3939 :    
3940 :     CM:
3941 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
3942 :     are no longer silent.
3943 :    
3944 :     CKIT:
3945 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
3946 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
3947 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
3948 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
3949 :     FixedInt.
3950 :    
3951 :     Throughout the code:
3952 : mblume 1348 Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
3953 : mblume 1347 (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

3972 :     Tag: blume-20030811-windows
3973 :     Description:
3974 :    
3975 :     Version number bumped to 110.42.9. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
3976 :    
3977 :     http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
3978 :    
3979 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a
3980 :     number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
3981 :     unnoticed until now:
3982 :    
3983 :     - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
3984 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
3985 :    
3986 :     - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
3987 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
3988 :    
3989 :     - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly. The main
3990 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
3991 :     using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
3992 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
3993 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
3994 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
3995 :    
3996 :     - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
3997 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
3998 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
3999 :    
4000 :     - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
4001 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
4002 :    
4003 :     standard!
4004 :    
4005 :     into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
4006 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
4007 :    
4008 :     native!
4009 :    
4010 :     switches back to native style. This was needed so that
4011 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
4012 :    
4013 :     - Runtime system:
4014 :    
4015 :     - win32-filesys.c: get_file_time and set_file_time now
4016 :     access modification time, not creation time.
4017 :    
4018 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
4019 :    
4020 :     - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
4021 :    
4022 :     - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
4023 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
4024 :    
4025 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
4026 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
4027 :    
4028 :     .bat scripts:
4029 :    
4030 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
4031 :    
4032 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
4033 :     applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
4034 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
4035 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
4036 :     that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
4037 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
4038 :     Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
4039 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
4040 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
4041 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
4042 :     It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc. No other
4043 :     libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
4044 :     are part of the compiler.)
4045 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
4046 :    
4047 :     Unrelated bug fixes:
4048 :    
4049 :     - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
4050 :     types.
4051 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
4052 :     otherwise.)

4091 :     1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
4092 :    
4093 :     This mainly affects the quality of error messages. However, some
4094 :     of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
4095 :     the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
4096 :     the "macro-expansion" that was going on before. Plus, the mach-
4097 :     compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
4098 :     if-expression.)
4099 :    
4100 :     2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
4101 :     interactive loop.

4107 :     Description:
4108 :    
4109 : blume 2155 Ported the runtime system to cygwin, which uses the unix
4110 : allenleung 1327 x86-unix bin files. Missing/buggy features:
4111 :    
4112 : blume 2155 o getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr: these functions seem to be missing in
4113 : allenleung 1327 the Cygwin library.
4114 :     o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
4115 :     o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.
4116 :    
4117 :     A new set of binfiles is located at:
4118 :    
4119 :     http://www.dorsai.org/~leunga/boot.x86-unix.tgz
4120 :    
4121 :     This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.
4122 :     Other x86 versions can use the existing binfiles.

4129 :    
4130 :     1. Added a target 'mlrisc' to installer.
4131 :    
4132 :     2. Added missing elements to structure ListPair.

4138 :     Description:
4139 :    
4140 :     Fixed a bug in Int.rem(x,y) where y is a power of 2 on x86.
4141 :     The arguments to the SUBL instruction were swapped.

4147 :     Description:
4148 :    
4149 :     Fixed a serious bug in the rewrite code for FP spilling/reloading that
4150 :     sent the RA into an infinite loop when floating point registers get
4151 :     spilled. (Because of this bug, e.g., nucleic stopped compiling between
4152 :     110.37 and 110.38.)
4153 :     There was another set of potential problems related to the handling of
4154 :     MLRISC annotations (but those did not yet cause real problems, apparently).

4160 :     Description:
4161 :    
4162 :     Added a call of SrcPath.sync at the beginning of Parse.parse (in CM).
4163 :     This fixes the problem of CM getting confused by files that suddenly
4164 :     change their identity (e.g., by getting unlinked and recreated by some
4165 :     text editor such as vi). There might be a better/cheaper/cleaner way
4166 :     of doing this, but for now this will have to do.
