25 :     Description:
26 :    
27 :     Added -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 flag to x86-linux makefile. This flag
28 :     is necessary to avoid spurious EOVERFLOW errors on some versions of
29 : jhr 3965 Linux. The problem appears to be limited to large file systems that
30 :     have more than 2^32 inodes.

51 :     Description:
52 : jhr 3914 Compiling the runtime system on cygwin was failing because the file
53 :     exceptions.h was missing. It appears to have been part of previous
54 :     versions, so a version has been incorporated verbatim in the
55 :     runtime/mach-base/cygwin-fault.c file (fixes bug #125).

60 :     Description:
61 : jhr 3912 Added the actionToString' and repairToString' functions
62 :     to the AntlrRepair structure. These functions allow one to
63 :     specialize the printing of tokens based on whether they are
64 :     being added or deleted.

100 :     Switch to using MAP_ANONYMOUS to allocate memory on Linux systems.
101 :     This change avoids problems when "/dev" does not support execute
102 :     permission (as seems to be the case with some versions of Linux
103 :     running on ChromeBooks; bug #120).

169 :     Description:
170 :     Fix bug #116 (Socket.sameDesc raises Match exception).
171 :     The problem is that on Windows the iodesc datatype (defined in

983 :     Description:
984 :    
985 :     Fixed some bugs in new Div code in FLINT/trans/translate.sml.
986 :    
987 :     Also, changed the handling of "no core access": When translate.sml
988 :     needs access to a core exception at a time when the core has not
989 :     been set up yet (this only happens when compiling system/smlnj/init/*),
990 :     then don't bother generating the corresponding tests.
991 :    
992 : dbm 2650 The old scheme was to generate a bogus value to be used in place of
993 :     the exception. Unfortunately, that confuses the plambda type checker.
994 :     Moreover, it does not do any good, because at runtime we don't expect
995 :     such an exception to be ever raised. (The code in system/smlnj/init/*
996 :     has to be written very carefully with this in mind!)

1009 :    
1010 :     FLINT/trans/translate.sml now wraps all DIV/MOD/QUOT/REM operations
1011 :     with an explicit test for zero division. This should fixes several

1029 :    
1030 : jhr 2617 A number of fixes related to the formatting of dates. These include fixes

1036 :     Date: 2007/05/23 22:30:00 CDT
1037 :     Description:
1038 :    
1039 :     CMB (and CM) now automatically defines the CM "preprocessor" symbol
1040 :     NO_PLUGINS during "makeml -rebuild" or when CM operates in "slave" mode.
1041 :    
1042 :     (In addition, CMB_REBUILD_MODE is defined for makeml -rebuild,
1043 :     CM_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves while running CM.make
1044 :     or CM.rebuild, and CMB_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves
1045 :     while running CMB.make. The point is that the single symbol
1046 :     NO_PLUGINS is definde in all three cases.)
1047 :    
1048 :     I changed the three locations within the sources that get compiled
1049 :     during CMB.make where ml-yacc or ml-lex input is processed: When
1050 :     NO_PLUGINS defined, then the use of the mlyacc and mllex tools
1051 :     is bypassed.
1052 :    
1053 :     When bootstrapping new versions of the compiler, there can be
1054 :     situations where the plugin tools for ml-yacc and ml-lex (or ml-ulex)
1055 :     are not available or otherwise not operational. In this case one can
1056 :     manually define the NO_PLUGINS symbol prior to running CMB.make(). To
1057 :     do so, the following command should be issued at the interactive
1058 :     prompt:
1059 :    
1060 :     #set (CMB.symval "NO_PLUGINS") (SOME 1);
1061 :    
1062 :     A CMB.make with NO_PLUGINS defined relies on the existence of the
1063 :     files that normally would be generated by ml-yacc and ml-lex.
1064 :     (Copies of these files are in the repository.)

1080 :     Description:
1081 :    
1082 :     Changed the installation mechanism for CM tool plugins. These are
1083 :     just libaries and now get installed like ordinary libaries.
1084 :    
1085 :     There are now a number of new installation targets that give some
1086 :     fine-grain control over what classes and suffixes are known, and what
1087 :     they will map to.
1088 :     See config/targets for details.
1089 :    
1090 :     The code that caused plugin installation as part of running a
1091 :     tool's "build" script has been removed. (The build script is for
1092 :     building, not for installing.)

1097 :     Description:
1098 :    
1099 :     Added a boolean control named cm.tolerate-tool-failures (env. variable
1100 :     name: CM_TOLERATE_TOOL_FAILURES). The default is false and makes
1101 :     CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status. If
1102 :     the control is set to true, then CM will press on after tool failures
1103 :     in the event that the target files exist (even though they are
1104 :     considered outdated). Turning the control to true can be useful for
1105 :     bootstrapping.

1110 :     Description:
1111 :    
1112 :     Merge of ml-lpt revisions for 110.64.
1113 :    
1114 :     The name of several ml-lpt-lib modules has changed:
1115 :     Repair => AntlrRepair
1116 :     StreamPos => AntlrStreamPos
1117 :     ErrHandlerFn => AntlrErrHandler
1118 :     EBNF => AntlrEBNF
1119 :    
1120 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1121 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1122 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1123 :     extends the previous ones. This does not apply to %start or %name,
1124 :     of course.
1125 :    
1126 :     Importing a grammar via %import now includes *all* declarations in from
1127 :     the imported grammar, except for %name, %entry, and %start. Tokens
1128 :     and nonterminals can be dropped using the new %dropping clause of the
1129 :     %import directive; the separate %drop and %extend have been removed.
1130 :    
1131 :     We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the %nonterms
1132 :     directive as in ml-yacc.
1133 :    
1134 :     The refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1135 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.
1136 :    
1137 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1138 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. Error repair for
1139 :     generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
1140 :     much faster and more accurate.
1141 :    
1142 :     ml-ulex is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
1143 :     escape codes are now interpreted literally, so e.g. \| denotes "|").
1144 :     Also, character classes may now include a "-" character at the beginning
1145 :     as is standard in most other regexp tools.
1146 :    
1147 :     All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
1148 :     been updated and improved with this merge.

1158 :     with a reorganized system for handling primops. Various bug fixes
1159 :     and improvements in printing signatures.

1164 :     Description:
1165 :    
1166 :     Preliminary commit of large ml-lpt revisions (more to come for 110.64).
1167 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1168 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1169 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1170 :     extends the previous ones. Grammar extension constructs have also
1171 :     changed. We now allow type annotations on nonterminals. Finally,
1172 :     the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1173 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated. All of these
1174 :     changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for ml-lpt.
1175 :    
1176 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1177 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. There has also been
1178 :     some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this
1179 :     will be further improved in 110.64.

1186 :     More Basis fixes: The Char.fromString (etc.) functions did not handle

1340 :     Date: 2007/01/31
1341 :     Description:
1342 :    
1343 :     Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code. Many minor
1344 :     improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes. Prepared
1345 :     ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure. Changed
1346 :     the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
1347 :     stream creation from several kinds of sources). Overall, the
1348 :     tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
1349 :     change in a way that would break compatibility. More work,
1350 :     however, is needed in the documentation.

1355 :     Description:
1356 :    
1357 :     Implemented library installer. Moved CM plugin code for
1358 :     ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
1359 :     their respective trees. Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
1360 :     and ml-antlr. Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
1361 :     and ml-antlr.
1362 :    
1363 :     For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
1364 :     CM tools. (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
1365 :     there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
1366 :     of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)

1371 :     Description:
1372 :    
1373 :     Added SMLofNJ.shiftArgs which is like a shell's "shift" command.
1374 :     Modified CM's startup code to use shiftArgs as it processes
1375 :     command line arguments. This way, the init code in each .sml-file
1376 :     or library that is mentioned at the top level will see only
1377 :     those arguments that have not yet been processed at this point.
1378 :     In other words, the init code can "seize control" and process the
1379 :     remaining command line.

1446 :     Description:
1447 :    
1448 :     Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
1449 :     causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
1450 :     command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
1451 :     as long as all target files exist.
1452 :    
1453 :     This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
1454 :     svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
1455 :     yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig. (Ml-yacc would
1456 :     be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
1457 :     available at that time.)

1463 :    
1464 :     Fixed the types of recvVecFrom, recvVecFrom', recvVecFromNB, and
1465 :     recvVecFromNB' in the SOCKET signature. This error is actually
1466 :     in the SML Basis specification too.

1496 :     Tag: release-110.60
1497 :     Description:
1498 :    
1499 :     New working release (110.60). NEW BOOTFILES!
1500 :    
1501 :     This is the first subversion-hosted release. There are also changes
1502 :     to the directory layout. Here is a table:
1503 :    
1504 :     (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
1505 :    
1506 :     config -> config
1507 :    
1508 :     src/cm -> base/cm
1509 :     src/compiler -> base/compiler
1510 :     src/runtime -> base/runtime
1511 :     src/system -> base/system
1512 :    
1513 :     src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
1514 :    
1515 :     src/READMES -> base/READMES
1516 :     src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
1517 :     for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
1518 :     MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
1519 :    
1520 :     src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
1521 :     src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
1522 :     ckit -> ckit
1523 :     src/cml -> cml
1524 :     src/eXene -> eXene
1525 :     src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
1526 :     src/lexgen -> lexgen
1527 :     src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
1528 :     src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
1529 :     src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
1530 :     src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
1531 :     src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
1532 :     src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
1533 :     src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
1534 :    
1535 :     In addition, there is also a new
1536 :    
1537 :     ml-lpt
1538 :    
1539 :     directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
1540 :     ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
1541 :     LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
1542 :    
1543 :     The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
1544 :     via subversion. For this, it is useful to first check out
1545 :    
1546 :     svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
1547 :    
1548 :     and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH. This provides
1549 :     access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
1550 :     and refresh-all.sh.
1551 :    
1552 :     To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
1553 :    
1554 :     checkout-all.sh [dir]
1555 :    
1556 :     where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
1557 :    
1558 :     This creates the above directory layout. Each subdirectory of
1559 :     the root is under individual subversion control. The stat-all.sh
1560 :     and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
1561 :     each of these subtrees.
1562 :    
1563 :     ----------------------------------------------------------------------
1564 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
1565 : blume 2155 Date: 2006/11/02 12:20:00 CST
1566 :     Description:
1567 :    
1568 :     Reorganized directory layout.
1569 :    
1570 :     This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
1571 :    
1572 :     The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
1573 :     to a well-defined part of the overall system. Each part can be
1574 :     maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
1575 :     although currently we still serve everything out of the main
1576 :     smlnj-gforge tree.
1577 :    
1578 :     Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
1579 :     layout. The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
1580 :     "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
1581 :     layout into SML source code. The main script used by the installer
1582 :     is in config/actions.
1583 :    
1584 :     The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
1585 :     be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel. The "src" directory
1586 :     itself has moved down into a subtree called "base". (We may eventually
1587 :     get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
1588 :    
1589 :     The layout is now as follows:
1590 :    
1591 :     toplevel tree name | default repository
1592 :     | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
1593 :     -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
1594 :     config | $gf/config/trunk
1595 :     |
1596 :     base | $gf/sml/trunk
1597 :     |
1598 :     smlnj-lib | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
1599 :     MLRISC | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
1600 :     |
1601 :     ml-yacc | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
1602 :     ml-lex | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
1603 :     ml-burg | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
1604 :     lexgen | $gf/lexgen/trunk
1605 :     heap2asm | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
1606 :     |
1607 :     cml | $gf/cml/trunk
1608 :     eXene | $gf/eXene/trunk
1609 :     ckit | $gf/ckit/trunk
1610 :     nlffi | $gf/nlffi/trunk
1611 :     |
1612 :     smlnj-c | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
1613 :    
1614 :     In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
1615 :     and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
1616 :    
1617 :     admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
1618 :     -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their
1619 :     default repositories; if dir is missing, checkout into .
1620 :     admin/refresh-all.sh [dir]
1621 :     -- looks at all trees (from the above list) in dir (default: .)
1622 :     and runs "svn update" if the tree exists and is under
1623 :     subversion control;
1624 :     non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
1625 :     admin/stat-all.sh [dir]
1626 :     -- like refresh-all.sh, but runs "svn stat" instead

1772 :     Description:
1773 :    
1774 :     Hooked code for Darwin-specific Intel ABI into main compiler.
1775 :     (This is a temporary solution which relies on the fact that the
1776 :     compiler itself does not use NLFFI. Eventually we need to divorce
1777 :     intel mac from generic x86 unix code and make separate sets of binaries.)

1806 :     Description:
1807 :    
1808 :     Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work. This is fixed
1809 :     now. (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
1810 : blume 2155 at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
1811 : mblume 1878 be referred to by another name. In 110.57 this would be
1812 :     $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm. I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1813 :     to be valid as well.)
1814 :    
1815 :     Thanks to Todd Wilson (Fresno) for alerting me to this issue.

1831 :     Fixed a problem in config/install.sh where it tries to "fish" the
1832 :     name of the CM metadata directory from the wrong place (because
1833 :     the physical location of basis.cm has changed). Also, corrected the

1868 :     Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
1869 :     Description:
1870 :    
1871 :     Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm. This
1872 :     file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
1873 :     run of CMB.make. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
1874 :     it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
1875 :     $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
1876 :     the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
1877 :     might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
1878 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
1879 :     compiler itself uses.)
1880 :    
1881 :     Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
1882 :     bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

1887 :     Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
1888 :     Description:
1889 :    
1890 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
1891 :     the system:
1892 :    
1893 :     $/basis.cm
1894 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
1895 :     $/pp-lib.cm
1896 :     $/controls-lib.cm
1897 :     $/html-lib.cm
1898 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1899 :    
1900 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
1901 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
1902 :    
1903 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
1904 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
1905 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
1906 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
1907 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1908 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1909 :    
1910 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
1911 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
1912 :     their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above). In other
1913 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
1914 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
1915 :    
1916 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
1917 :     MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
1918 :     cleanup on this code.
1919 :    
1920 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
1921 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
1922 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

2111 : mblume 1792 restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
2112 :     CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
2113 :     Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
2114 :    
2115 :     Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
2116 :     the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
2117 :     the heap image generation code in the boot code.

2233 :     Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
2234 :     Description:
2235 :    
2236 :     Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility. This is
2237 :     tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
2238 :     It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
2239 :    
2240 :     - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
2241 :    
2242 :     To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
2243 :     config/targets prior to installation. (Notice that this is different
2244 :     from "heap2exec" mentioned below. Not a typo.)
2245 :    
2246 :     To perform an actual test, run the command
2247 :    
2248 :     $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
2249 :    
2250 :     (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
2251 :    
2252 :     For example, run
2253 :    
2254 :     $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
2255 :    
2256 :     This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
2257 :     then invoke directly as a command.

2284 :    
2285 :     * Fixed CM's incorrect assumption that the PPC is little-endian.
2286 :     (On the Mac, it is big-endian. And that's currently our only
2287 :     PPC platform.)

2402 :     Tag: blume-20041124-position
2403 :     Description:
2404 :    
2405 :     The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
2406 :     equal to Int64. The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
2407 :     for the time being.
2408 :    
2409 :     To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
2410 :    
2411 :     1. Start sml
2412 :     2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
2413 :     3. Type
2414 :     #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
2415 :     4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
2416 :    
2417 :     This is barely tested. The only test so far was a little SML program
2418 :     counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
2419 :     reading it character-by-character. That test was successful.
2420 :    
2421 :     In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
2422 :     added to the runtime system.

2466 :     The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
2467 :    
2468 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
2469 :     translated. In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
2470 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
2471 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are
2472 :     the new int64 and word64 types.

2504 :     seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
2505 :     I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
2506 :     at the moment.
2507 :    
2508 :     Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64. But
2509 :     this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
2510 :     go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
2511 :     worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
2512 :     simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

2541 :    
2542 :     Also:
2543 :    
2544 :     - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just
2545 :     containing the URL string into a file containing
2546 :     shell script code. The code has access to the $VERSION variable.
2547 :     - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
2548 :     - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
2549 :     normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
2550 :    
2551 :     (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
2552 :     config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

2592 :     Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
2593 :     Description:
2594 :    
2595 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
2596 :     programs. Here is how it works:
2597 :    
2598 :     1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
2599 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
2600 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
2601 :     main program could be modified from something like
2602 :    
2603 :     fun main (pgm, args) = ...
2604 :    
2605 :     to
2606 :    
2607 :     fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
2608 :    
2609 :     2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
2610 :     library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
2611 :     main function.
2612 :    
2613 :     3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
2614 :     CM might have created in the past for your project).
2615 :    
2616 :     4. Build the system using this command line:
2617 :    
2618 :     ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
2619 :     myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2620 :    
2621 :     instead of the usual
2622 :    
2623 :     ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2624 :    
2625 :     I changed a library name:
2626 :    
2627 :     $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
2628 :    
2629 :     New libraries:
2630 :    
2631 :     $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
2632 :     -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
2633 :     $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
2634 :     -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

2650 :     Description:
2651 :    
2652 :     * Test coverage tool added!
2653 :     * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
2654 :    
2655 :     - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
2656 :     library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2657 :     - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
2658 :     - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
2659 :     - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
2660 :     - Coverage module is another such plugin
2661 :    
2662 :     To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
2663 :     question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on. This
2664 :     can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
2665 :     (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
2666 :    
2667 :     Plugins are selected at link time. (Pre-compiled instrumented code
2668 :     can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.) When an
2669 :     instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
2670 :     enabled will come into effect for that module.
2671 :    
2672 :     To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2673 :     and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
2674 :     To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
2675 :     Coverage.install().
2676 :    
2677 :     Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
2678 :     when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
2679 :    
2680 :     Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
2681 :     explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

2799 :     Description:
2800 :    
2801 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
2802 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
2803 :     generated automagically.
2804 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
2805 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
2806 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
2807 :    
2808 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
2809 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
2810 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
2811 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
2812 :    
2813 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
2814 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
2815 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
2816 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
2817 :    
2818 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.

2832 :     Tag: blume-20040927-controls
2833 :     Description:
2834 :    
2835 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
2836 :    
2837 :     1. val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
2838 :    
2839 :     grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
2840 :     in stage 2.
2841 :    
2842 :     2. val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
2843 :    
2844 :     stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
2845 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
2846 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
2847 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
2848 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
2849 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
2850 :    
2851 :     Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
2852 :     "lazysml":
2853 :     - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
2854 :     old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
2855 :     - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
2856 :     (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

2861 :     Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
2862 :     Description:
2863 :    
2864 :     Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest. The only
2865 :     difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
2866 :     set to true. A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
2867 :     by a file name suffix of ".lml".
2868 :    
2869 :     In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
2870 :     supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect. As a
2871 :     result, the following three lines are equivalent:
2872 :    
2873 :     foo.sml : lazysml
2874 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
2875 :     foo.sml (lazy)
2876 :    
2877 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
2878 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
2879 :     after compilation, respectively.
2880 :    
2881 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
2882 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
2883 :     "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "lazy"
2884 :     apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
2885 :     the general mechanism.)
2886 :    
2887 :     The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
2888 :     There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
2889 :    
2890 :     foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
2891 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
2892 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
2893 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
2894 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
2895 :    
2896 :     etc.
2897 :    
2898 :     Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
2899 :     if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
2900 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:
2901 :    
2902 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword=true)
2903 :     foo.sml (with:parser.lazy-keyword)
2904 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword value:true))
2905 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.lazy-keyword))

3257 :     Description:
3258 :    
3259 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
3260 :     recent Basis spec.
3261 :    
3262 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
3263 :    
3264 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
3265 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
3266 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
3267 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
3268 :    
3269 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
3270 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
3271 :     stream in proc after all...
3272 :    
3273 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
3274 :    
3275 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
3276 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
3277 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
3278 :     file descriptors directly.
3279 :    
3280 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
3281 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
3282 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

3296 :     Description:
3297 :    
3298 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
3299 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
3300 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
3301 : mblume 1505 "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
3302 : mblume 1498 library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
3303 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
3304 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
3305 :     library.
3306 :    
3307 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
3308 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
3309 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
3310 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
3311 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
3312 :     cause real problems.

3319 :    
3320 :     Made the win32 version work again. (Strangely, a misplaced comma had
3321 :     slipped into win32-process.c which prevented the runtime from being
3322 :     compiled correctly.)
3323 :    
3324 :     Also, included a minor addition to ml-build.bat analogous to what was
3325 :     done in blume-20040519-ml-build.

3331 :     Description:
3332 :    
3333 :     Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
3334 :     The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
3335 :     CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it. It now
3336 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
3337 :    
3338 :     This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the
3339 :     metadata directory (default: .cm) is actually configurable at
3340 :     installation time.

3355 :     Description:
3356 :    
3357 :     Added previously missing support for many socket-related functions
3358 :     under win32. Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
3359 :     for the voluminous patch!
3360 :    
3361 :     (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
3362 :    
3363 : mblume 1490 Here is David's e-mail:
3364 :    
3365 :     Hi,
3366 :    
3367 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
3368 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
3369 :    
3370 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
3371 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
3372 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
3373 :     110.45 installation.
3374 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
3375 :    
3376 : blume 2155 The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
3377 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
3378 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
3379 : mblume 1490 are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
3380 :    
3381 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
3382 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
3383 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
3384 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
3385 : blume 2155 that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
3386 : mblume 1490 familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
3387 :    
3388 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
3389 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
3390 :     of these functions is
3391 :    
3392 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
3393 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
3394 :    
3395 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
3396 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
3397 :     report an error upwards.
3398 :    
3399 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
3400 : blume 2155 the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
3401 : mblume 1490 Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
3402 :     when the process finishes.
3403 :    
3404 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
3405 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
3406 :    
3407 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
3408 :    
3409 : blume 2155 We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
3410 :     with it. I hope this contribution will help you.
3411 : mblume 1490
3412 :     Keep up the good work!

3496 :    
3497 : blume 2155 does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
3498 :     such as 'malloc' during linking. We fixed this by explicitly
3499 : allenleung 1468 exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
3500 :    
3501 :     -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
3502 :

3504 : blume 2155 we wish to export.
3505 : allenleung 1468
3506 : blume 2155 I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
3507 :     do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
3508 : allenleung 1468 we build the native win32 version with the system
3509 : blume 2155 calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

3635 :     Description:
3636 :    
3637 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
3638 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
3639 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
3640 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
3641 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
3642 :    
3643 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
3644 :     implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
3645 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
3646 :    
3647 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
3648 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
3649 : mblume 1394 be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
3650 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
3651 : mblume 1393 "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
3652 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
3653 :     names in the current environment.)

3659 :     Description:
3660 :    
3661 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
3662 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
3663 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
3664 :    
3665 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
3666 :    
3667 :     and everything happens automagically.
3668 :    
3669 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
3670 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
3671 :     and BINDIR.

3673 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
3674 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
3675 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

3699 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
3700 :    
3701 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
3702 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
3703 :     between Unix and Win32.
3704 :    
3705 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
3706 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
3707 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
3708 :    
3709 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
3710 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
3711 :     of CML.
3712 :    
3713 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

3755 :    
3756 :     1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as

3825 :     Tag: blume-20030909-installer
3826 :     Description:
3827 :    
3828 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
3829 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
3830 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
3831 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
3832 :     independent.)
3833 :    
3834 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
3835 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
3836 :    
3837 :     Other changes:
3838 :    
3839 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
3840 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
3841 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
3842 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
3843 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
3844 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
3845 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
3846 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
3847 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

3857 :     CM depends on it. (CM otherwise goes into an infinite loop in certain

3863 : mblume 1352 Tag: blume-20030905-slices-etc
3864 : mblume 1350 Description:
3865 :    
3866 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
3867 :     (draft) Basis spec.
3868 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
3869 :     Basis spec.
3870 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
3871 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
3872 :     match the new signatures.)
3873 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
3874 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
3875 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
3876 :     appropriate.
3877 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
3878 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
3879 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
3880 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
3881 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
3882 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
3883 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
3884 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
3885 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
3886 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
3887 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
3888 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
3889 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
3890 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
3891 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
3892 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
3893 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
3894 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
3895 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
3896 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
3897 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
3898 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
3899 :     ArraySlice).

3904 :     Tag: blume-20030828-intinf
3905 :     Description:
3906 :    
3907 :     This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
3908 :     (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
3909 :     and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
3910 :    
3911 :     There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
3912 :     the system:
3913 :    
3914 :     Basis:
3915 :     - Implemented IntInf.
3916 :     - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
3917 : mblume 1348 - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
3918 : mblume 1347 - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
3919 :    
3920 :     compiler:
3921 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
3922 :     - literals
3923 :     - pattern matching
3924 :     - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
3925 :     - overloading on literals and operations
3926 :    
3927 :     This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
3928 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
3929 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
3930 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
3931 :    
3932 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
3933 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
3934 :     is the right thing to do there).
3935 :    
3936 :     * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
3937 :    
3938 :     * A word about conversion primops:
3939 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
3940 : mblume 1348 CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
3941 : mblume 1347 Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
3942 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
3943 : mblume 1348 to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
3944 : mblume 1347 for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
3945 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
3946 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
3947 : mblume 1348 eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
3948 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
3949 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
3950 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
3951 : mblume 1347
3952 :     interactive system:
3953 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
3954 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
3955 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
3956 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
3957 :     use of library functionality.
3958 :    
3959 :     CM:
3960 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
3961 :     are no longer silent.
3962 :    
3963 :     CKIT:
3964 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
3965 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
3966 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
3967 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
3968 :     FixedInt.
3969 :    
3970 :     Throughout the code:
3971 : mblume 1348 Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
3972 : mblume 1347 (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

3991 :     Tag: blume-20030811-windows
3992 :     Description:
3993 :    
3994 :     Version number bumped to 110.42.9. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
3995 :    
3996 :     http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
3997 :    
3998 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a
3999 :     number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
4000 :     unnoticed until now:
4001 :    
4002 :     - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
4003 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
4004 :    
4005 :     - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
4006 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
4007 :    
4008 :     - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly. The main
4009 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
4010 :     using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
4011 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
4012 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
4013 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
4014 :    
4015 :     - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
4016 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
4017 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
4018 :    
4019 :     - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
4020 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
4021 :    
4022 :     standard!
4023 :    
4024 :     into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
4025 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
4026 :    
4027 :     native!
4028 :    
4029 :     switches back to native style. This was needed so that
4030 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
4031 :    
4032 :     - Runtime system:
4033 :    
4034 :     - win32-filesys.c: get_file_time and set_file_time now
4035 :     access modification time, not creation time.
4036 :    
4037 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
4038 :    
4039 :     - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
4040 :    
4041 :     - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
4042 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
4043 :    
4044 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
4045 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
4046 :    
4047 :     .bat scripts:
4048 :    
4049 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
4050 :    
4051 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
4052 :     applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
4053 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
4054 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
4055 :     that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
4056 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
4057 :     Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
4058 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
4059 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
4060 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
4061 :     It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc. No other
4062 :     libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
4063 :     are part of the compiler.)
4064 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
4065 :    
4066 :     Unrelated bug fixes:
4067 :    
4068 :     - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
4069 :     types.
4070 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
4071 :     otherwise.)

4094 :     Tag: blume-20030517-complete
4095 :     Description:
4096 :    
4097 :     Two changes:
4098 :    
4099 :     1. Added a flag for controlling whether non-exhaustive bindings will
4100 :     be treated as errors (default is false).
4101 :     2. Cleaned up the *entire* source tree so that CMB.make goes through
4102 :     without a single non-exhaustive match- or bind warning.

4107 :     Tag: blume-20030517-absyn
4108 :     Description:
4109 :    
4110 :     1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
4111 :    
4112 :     This mainly affects the quality of error messages. However, some
4113 :     of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
4114 :     the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
4115 :     the "macro-expansion" that was going on before. Plus, the mach-
4116 :     compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
4117 :     if-expression.)
4118 :    
4119 :     2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
4120 :     interactive loop.

4126 :     Description:
4127 :    
4128 : blume 2155 Ported the runtime system to cygwin, which uses the unix
4129 : allenleung 1327 x86-unix bin files. Missing/buggy features:
4130 :    
4131 : blume 2155 o getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr: these functions seem to be missing in
4132 : allenleung 1327 the Cygwin library.
4133 :     o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
4134 :     o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.
4135 :    
4136 :     A new set of binfiles is located at:
4137 :    
4138 :     http://www.dorsai.org/~leunga/boot.x86-unix.tgz
4139 :    
4140 :     This is only needed for bootstrapping the cygwin version of smlnj.
4141 :     Other x86 versions can use the existing binfiles.

4157 :     Description:
4158 :    
4159 :     Fixed a bug in Int.rem(x,y) where y is a power of 2 on x86.
4160 :     The arguments to the SUBL instruction were swapped.

4166 :     Description:
4167 :    
4168 :     Fixed a serious bug in the rewrite code for FP spilling/reloading that
4169 :     sent the RA into an infinite loop when floating point registers get
4170 :     spilled. (Because of this bug, e.g., nucleic stopped compiling betwe
