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

31 :     Name: John Reppy (http://cs.uchicago.edu/~jhr)
32 : jhr 3964 Date: 2014/10/11
33 :     Description:
34 :    
35 :     Added -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 flag to x86-linux makefile. This flag
36 :     is necessary to avoid spurious EOVERFLOW errors on some versions of
37 : jhr 3965 Linux. The problem appears to be limited to large file systems that
38 :     have more than 2^32 inodes.

58 : jhr 3912 Date: 2014/08/19
59 :     Description:
60 : jhr 3914 Compiling the runtime system on cygwin was failing because the file
61 :     exceptions.h was missing. It appears to have been part of previous
62 :     versions, so a version has been incorporated verbatim in the
63 :     runtime/mach-base/cygwin-fault.c file (fixes bug #125).

68 :     Description:
69 : jhr 3912 Added the actionToString' and repairToString' functions
70 :     to the AntlrRepair structure. These functions allow one to
71 :     specialize the printing of tokens based on whether they are
72 :     being added or deleted.

84 :     Description:
85 : jhr 3903 Use mkstemp to implement OS.FileSys.tmpName() on systems that support
86 :     it (should be all modern versions of Unix). This change fixes bug #128.
87 :     (Thanks to Johannes 5 Joemann).

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

137 :     Description:
138 :     Added PackWord{16,32}{Big,Little} structures to the Unsafe module.
139 :     This change makes the UNSAFE signature closer to the MLton version,

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

991 :     Description:
992 :    
993 :     Fixed some bugs in new Div code in FLINT/trans/translate.sml.
994 :    
995 :     Also, changed the handling of "no core access": When translate.sml
996 :     needs access to a core exception at a time when the core has not
997 :     been set up yet (this only happens when compiling system/smlnj/init/*),
998 :     then don't bother generating the corresponding tests.
999 :    
1000 : dbm 2650 The old scheme was to generate a bogus value to be used in place of
1001 :     the exception. Unfortunately, that confuses the plambda type checker.
1002 :     Moreover, it does not do any good, because at runtime we don't expect
1003 :     such an exception to be ever raised. (The code in system/smlnj/init/*
1004 :     has to be written very carefully with this in mind!)

1037 :    
1038 : jhr 2617 A number of fixes related to the formatting of dates. These include fixes

1044 :     Date: 2007/05/23 22:30:00 CDT
1045 :     Description:
1046 :    
1047 :     CMB (and CM) now automatically defines the CM "preprocessor" symbol
1048 :     NO_PLUGINS during "makeml -rebuild" or when CM operates in "slave" mode.
1049 :    
1050 :     (In addition, CMB_REBUILD_MODE is defined for makeml -rebuild,
1051 :     CM_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves while running CM.make
1052 :     or CM.rebuild, and CMB_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves
1053 :     while running CMB.make. The point is that the single symbol
1054 :     NO_PLUGINS is definde in all three cases.)
1055 :    
1056 :     I changed the three locations within the sources that get compiled
1057 :     during CMB.make where ml-yacc or ml-lex input is processed: When
1058 :     NO_PLUGINS defined, then the use of the mlyacc and mllex tools
1059 :     is bypassed.
1060 :    
1061 :     When bootstrapping new versions of the compiler, there can be
1062 :     situations where the plugin tools for ml-yacc and ml-lex (or ml-ulex)
1063 :     are not available or otherwise not operational. In this case one can
1064 :     manually define the NO_PLUGINS symbol prior to running CMB.make(). To
1065 :     do so, the following command should be issued at the interactive
1066 :     prompt:
1067 :    
1068 :     #set (CMB.symval "NO_PLUGINS") (SOME 1);
1069 :    
1070 :     A CMB.make with NO_PLUGINS defined relies on the existence of the
1071 :     files that normally would be generated by ml-yacc and ml-lex.
1072 :     (Copies of these files are in the repository.)

1088 :     Description:
1089 :    
1090 :     Changed the installation mechanism for CM tool plugins. These are
1091 :     just libaries and now get installed like ordinary libaries.
1092 :    
1093 :     There are now a number of new installation targets that give some
1094 :     fine-grain control over what classes and suffixes are known, and what
1095 :     they will map to.
1096 :     See config/targets for details.
1097 :    
1098 :     The code that caused plugin installation as part of running a
1099 :     tool's "build" script has been removed. (The build script is for
1100 :     building, not for installing.)

1105 :     Description:
1106 :    
1107 :     Added a boolean control named cm.tolerate-tool-failures (env. variable
1108 :     name: CM_TOLERATE_TOOL_FAILURES). The default is false and makes
1109 :     CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status. If
1110 :     the control is set to true, then CM will press on after tool failures
1111 :     in the event that the target files exist (even though they are
1112 :     considered outdated). Turning the control to true can be useful for
1113 :     bootstrapping.

1118 :     Description:
1119 :    
1120 :     Merge of ml-lpt revisions for 110.64.
1121 :    
1122 :     The name of several ml-lpt-lib modules has changed:
1123 :     Repair => AntlrRepair
1124 :     StreamPos => AntlrStreamPos
1125 :     ErrHandlerFn => AntlrErrHandler
1126 :     EBNF => AntlrEBNF
1127 :    
1128 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1129 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1130 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1131 :     extends the previous ones. This does not apply to %start or %name,
1132 :     of course.
1133 :    
1134 :     Importing a grammar via %import now includes *all* declarations in from
1135 :     the imported grammar, except for %name, %entry, and %start. Tokens
1136 :     and nonterminals can be dropped using the new %dropping clause of the
1137 :     %import directive; the separate %drop and %extend have been removed.
1138 :    
1139 :     We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the %nonterms
1140 :     directive as in ml-yacc.
1141 :    
1142 :     The refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1143 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.
1144 :    
1145 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1146 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. Error repair for
1147 :     generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
1148 :     much faster and more accurate.
1149 :    
1150 :     ml-ulex is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
1151 :     escape codes are now interpreted literally, so e.g. \| denotes "|").
1152 :     Also, character classes may now include a "-" character at the beginning
1153 :     as is standard in most other regexp tools.
1154 :    
1155 :     All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
1156 :     been updated and improved with this merge.

1167 :     and improvements in printing signatures.

1172 :     Description:
1173 :    
1174 :     Preliminary commit of large ml-lpt revisions (more to come for 110.64).
1175 :     The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
1176 :     %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
1177 :     same specification. The semantics are such that each new declaration
1178 :     extends the previous ones. Grammar extension constructs have also
1179 :     changed. We now allow type annotations on nonterminals. Finally,
1180 :     the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
1181 :     cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated. All of these
1182 :     changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for ml-lpt.
1183 :    
1184 :     The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
1185 :     its error messages have been greatly improved. There has also been
1186 :     some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this
1187 :     will be further improved in 110.64.

1194 :     More Basis fixes: The Char.fromString (etc.) functions did not handle

1288 :    
1289 :     Bug fix: when SaveCState was called with two values to save, a subsequent
1290 :     GC could cause the RestoreCState to fail because the saved state had been
1291 :     promoted to tagless pair.

1298 :     Bug triggered by:

1300 :     val a1 = Word8Array.array(a1, 0w0);
1301 :     val _ = Word8Array.update(a1, 0, 0w128);
1302 :    
1303 :     x86MCEmitter crashed when the immediate operand to MOVB was outside
1304 :     of the range -128 ... 127. I've changed the code so that the range
1305 :     check is disabled. Only the low order 8 bits of the immediate operand
1306 : jhr 2342 are now significant.

1314 :     Eliminated any mention of lexgen. (Lexgen was an early precursor
1315 :     to ml-ulex.)
1316 :

1346 :     Date: 2007/01/31
1347 :     Description:
1348 :    
1349 :     Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code. Many minor
1350 :     improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes. Prepared
1351 :     ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure. Changed
1352 :     the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
1353 :     stream creation from several kinds of sources). Overall, the
1354 :     tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
1355 :     change in a way that would break compatibility. More work,
1356 :     however, is needed in the documentation.

1361 :     Description:
1362 :    
1363 :     Implemented library installer. Moved CM plugin code for
1364 :     ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
1365 :     their respective trees. Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
1366 :     and ml-antlr. Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
1367 :     and ml-antlr.
1368 :    
1369 :     For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
1370 :     CM tools. (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
1371 :     there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
1372 :     of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)

1377 :     Description:
1378 :    
1379 :     Added SMLofNJ.shiftArgs which is like a shell's "shift" command.
1380 :     Modified CM's startup code to use shiftArgs as it processes
1381 :     command line arguments. This way, the init code in each .sml-file
1382 :     or library that is mentioned at the top level will see only
1383 :     those arguments that have not yet been processed at this point.
1384 :     In other words, the init code can "seize control" and process the
1385 :     remaining command line.

1452 :     Description:
1453 :    
1454 :     Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
1455 :     causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
1456 :     command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
1457 :     as long as all target files exist.
1458 :    
1459 :     This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
1460 :     svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
1461 :     yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig. (Ml-yacc would
1462 :     be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
1463 :     available at that time.)

1469 :    
1470 :     Fixed the types of recvVecFrom, recvVecFrom', recvVecFromNB, and
1471 :     recvVecFromNB' in the SOCKET signature. This error is actually
1472 :     in the SML Basis specification too.

1502 :     Tag: release-110.60
1503 :     Description:
1504 :    
1505 :     New working release (110.60). NEW BOOTFILES!
1506 :    
1507 :     This is the first subversion-hosted release. There are also changes
1508 :     to the directory layout. Here is a table:
1509 :    
1510 :     (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
1511 :    
1512 :     config -> config
1513 :    
1514 :     src/cm -> base/cm
1515 :     src/compiler -> base/compiler
1516 :     src/runtime -> base/runtime
1517 :     src/system -> base/system
1518 :    
1519 :     src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
1520 :    
1521 :     src/READMES -> base/READMES
1522 :     src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
1523 :     for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
1524 :     MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
1525 :    
1526 :     src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
1527 :     src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
1528 :     ckit -> ckit
1529 :     src/cml -> cml
1530 :     src/eXene -> eXene
1531 :     src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
1532 :     src/lexgen -> lexgen
1533 :     src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
1534 :     src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
1535 :     src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
1536 :     src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
1537 :     src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
1538 :     src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
1539 :     src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
1540 :    
1541 :     In addition, there is also a new
1542 :    
1543 :     ml-lpt
1544 :    
1545 :     directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
1546 :     ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
1547 :     LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
1548 :    
1549 :     The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
1550 :     via subversion. For this, it is useful to first check out
1551 :    
1552 :     svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
1553 :    
1554 :     and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH. This provides
1555 :     access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
1556 :     and refresh-all.sh.
1557 :    
1558 :     To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
1559 :    
1560 :     checkout-all.sh [dir]
1561 :    
1562 :     where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
1563 :    
1564 :     This creates the above directory layout. Each subdirectory of
1565 :     the root is under individual subversion control. The stat-all.sh
1566 :     and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
1567 :     each of these subtrees.
1568 :

1570 :     Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
1571 : blume 2155 Date: 2006/11/02 12:20:00 CST
1572 :     Description:
1573 :    
1574 :     Reorganized directory layout.
1575 :    
1576 :     This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
1577 :    
1578 :     The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
1579 :     to a well-defined part of the overall system. Each part can be
1580 :     maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
1581 :     although currently we still serve everything out of the main
1582 :     smlnj-gforge tree.
1583 :    
1584 :     Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
1585 :     layout. The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
1586 :     "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
1587 :     layout into SML source code. The main script used by the installer
1588 :     is in config/actions.
1589 :    
1590 :     The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
1591 :     be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel. The "src" directory
1592 :     itself has moved down into a subtree called "base". (We may eventually
1593 :     get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
1594 :    
1595 :     The layout is now as follows:
1596 :    
1597 :     toplevel tree name | default repository
1598 :     | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
1599 :     -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
1600 :     config | $gf/config/trunk
1601 :     |
1602 :     base | $gf/sml/trunk
1603 :     |
1604 :     smlnj-lib | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
1605 :     MLRISC | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
1606 :     |
1607 :     ml-yacc | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
1608 :     ml-lex | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
1609 :     ml-burg | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
1610 :     lexgen | $gf/lexgen/trunk
1611 :     heap2asm | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
1612 :     |
1613 :     cml | $gf/cml/trunk
1614 :     eXene | $gf/eXene/trunk
1615 :     ckit | $gf/ckit/trunk
1616 :     nlffi | $gf/nlffi/trunk
1617 :     |
1618 :     smlnj-c | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
1619 :    
1620 :     In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
1621 :     and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
1622 :    
1623 :     admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
1624 :     -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their
1625 :     default repositories; if dir is missing, checkout into .
1626 :     admin/refresh-all.sh [dir]
1627 :     -- looks at all trees (from the above list) in dir (default: .)
1628 :     and runs "svn update" if the tree exists and is under
1629 :     subversion control;
1630 :     non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
1631 :     admin/stat-all.sh [dir]
1632 :     -- like refresh-all.sh, but runs "svn stat" instead

1778 :     Description:
1779 :    
1780 :     Hooked code for Darwin-specific Intel ABI into main compiler.
1781 :     (This is a temporary solution which relies on the fact that the
1782 :     compiler itself does not use NLFFI. Eventually we need to divorce
1783 :     intel mac from generic x86 unix code and make separate sets of binaries.)

1812 :     Description:
1813 :    
1814 :     Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work. This is fixed
1815 :     now. (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
1816 : blume 2155 at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
1817 : mblume 1878 be referred to by another name. In 110.57 this would be
1818 :     $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm. I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1819 :     to be valid as well.)
1820 :    
1821 :     Thanks to Todd Wilson (Fresno) for alerting me to this issue.

1836 :    
1837 :     Fixed a problem in config/install.sh where it tries to "fish" the
1838 :     name of the CM metadata directory from the wrong place (because
1839 :     the physical location of basis.cm has changed). Also, corrected the
1840 :     path anchor for $/html-lib.cm. (Thanks to M. Fluet for pointing out

1874 :     Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
1875 :     Description:
1876 :    
1877 :     Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm. This
1878 :     file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
1879 :     run of CMB.make. Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
1880 :     it. Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
1881 :     $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library. (At least that's true for
1882 :     the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change. In the future it
1883 :     might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
1884 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
1885 :     compiler itself uses.)
1886 :    
1887 :     Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
1888 :     bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

1893 :     Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
1894 :     Description:
1895 :    
1896 :     This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
1897 :     the system:
1898 :    
1899 :     $/basis.cm
1900 :     $/smlnj-lib.cm
1901 :     $/pp-lib.cm
1902 :     $/controls-lib.cm
1903 :     $/html-lib.cm
1904 :     $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1905 :    
1906 :     These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
1907 :     of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
1908 :    
1909 :     $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
1910 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
1911 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
1912 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
1913 :     $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1914 :     $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1915 :    
1916 :     This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
1917 :     versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
1918 :     their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above). In other
1919 :     words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
1920 :     compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
1921 :    
1922 :     A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
1923 :     MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler. I did some
1924 :     cleanup on this code.
1925 :    
1926 :     A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
1927 :     responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
1928 :     not need, but that are typically required by user code.

2107 :     Tag: blume-20050516-redump-heap
2108 :     Description:
2109 :    
2110 :     Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
2111 :     after configuration variables have been changed.
2112 :    
2113 :     CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
2114 :    
2115 :     This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
2116 : blume 2155 heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
2117 : mblume 1792 restarts the interactive system from scratch. The original call of
2118 :     CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
2119 :     Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
2120 :    
2121 :     Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
2122 :     the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
2123 :     the heap image generation code in the boot code.

2129 :     Description:
2130 :    
2131 :     Added a hack to the existing hack known as Word64 to make fromString
2132 :     behave correctly. I am still not sure whether Word64.scan will work
2133 :     as specified with respect to the interaction of radix and prefix.

2239 :     Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
2240 :     Description:
2241 :    
2242 :     Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility. This is
2243 :     tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
2244 :     It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
2245 :    
2246 :     - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
2247 :    
2248 :     To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
2249 :     config/targets prior to installation. (Notice that this is different
2250 :     from "heap2exec" mentioned below. Not a typo.)
2251 :    
2252 :     To perform an actual test, run the command
2253 :    
2254 :     $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
2255 :    
2256 :     (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
2257 :    
2258 :     For example, run
2259 :    
2260 :     $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
2261 :    
2262 :     This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
2263 :     then invoke directly as a command.

2288 :     (The parameter-passing part of the picture has not complete. But
2289 :     data structure access seems to work.)
2290 :    
2291 :     * Fixed CM's incorrect assumption that the PPC is little-endian.
2292 :     (On the Mac, it is big-endian. And that's currently our only
2293 :     PPC platform.)

2408 :     Tag: blume-20041124-position
2409 :     Description:
2410 :    
2411 :     The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
2412 :     equal to Int64. The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
2413 :     for the time being.
2414 :    
2415 :     To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
2416 :    
2417 :     1. Start sml
2418 :     2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
2419 :     3. Type
2420 :     #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
2421 :     4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
2422 :    
2423 :     This is barely tested. The only test so far was a little SML program
2424 :     counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
2425 :     reading it character-by-character. That test was successful.
2426 :    
2427 :     In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
2428 :     added to the runtime system.

2472 :     The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
2473 :    
2474 :     - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
2475 :     translated. In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
2476 :     This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
2477 :     more efficient code. Important examples for where this matters are
2478 :     the new int64 and word64 types.

2507 :     Description:
2508 :    
2509 :     Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
2510 :     seem to work. There are a few odd pieces missing. In particular,
2511 :     I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
2512 :     at the moment.
2513 :    
2514 :     Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64. But
2515 :     this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
2516 :     go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
2517 :     worse. Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
2518 :     simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

2550 :     - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just

2553 :     - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
2554 :     - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
2555 :     normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
2556 :    
2557 :     (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
2558 :     config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

2598 :     Tag: blume-20041020-standalone-backtrace
2599 :     Description:
2600 :    
2601 :     Added a mechanism for getting back-trace information from standalone
2602 :     programs. Here is how it works:
2603 :    
2604 :     1. The part of the program from which you want to get backtrace
2605 :     information (usually the whole program) should be wrapped with
2606 :     BackTrace.monitor. This is a (unit->'a)->'a function, and your
2607 :     main program could be modified from something like
2608 :    
2609 :     fun main (pgm, args) = ...
2610 :    
2611 :     to
2612 :    
2613 :     fun main (pgm, args) = BackTrace.monitor (fn () => ...)
2614 :    
2615 :     2. To be able to access BackTrace.monitor, you have to add
2616 :     library $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm to the .cm file that contains your
2617 :     main function.
2618 :    
2619 :     3. Remove all compiled code (i.e., all the .cm/ subdirectories that
2620 :     CM might have created in the past for your project).
2621 :    
2622 :     4. Build the system using this command line:
2623 :    
2624 :     ml-build -Ctdp.instrument=true \$smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm \
2625 :     myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2626 :    
2627 :     instead of the usual
2628 :    
2629 :     ml-build myprog.cm MyProg.main myprog
2630 :    
2631 :     I changed a library name:
2632 :    
2633 :     $/trace-debug-profile.cm --> $smlnj-tdp/plugins.cm
2634 :    
2635 :     New libraries:
2636 :    
2637 :     $smlnj-tdp/back-trace.cm
2638 :     -- when loaded causes the back-trace plugin to be installed
2639 :     $smlnj-tdp/coverage.cm
2640 :     -- when loaded causes the coverage plugin to be installed

2656 :     Description:
2657 :    
2658 :     * Test coverage tool added!
2659 :     * Further reorganization of tracing-, debugging-, and profiling support:
2660 :    
2661 :     - moved original BTImp -- now called BackTrace -- into a separate
2662 :     library called $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2663 :     - eliminated all mentions of BTrace from SMLofNJ.Internals
2664 :     - only the instrumentation mechanism is now left in the compiler proper
2665 :     - BackTrace module is a plugin which is NOT plugged in by default
2666 :     - Coverage module is another such plugin
2667 :    
2668 :     To get the benefits of any of these plugin modules, the code in
2669 :     question must be compiled with tdp instrumentation turned on. This
2670 :     can be done by setting SMLofNJ.Internals.TDP.mode to true.
2671 :     (The ref cell is also controlled via the -Ctdp.instrument=... switch.)
2672 :    
2673 :     Plugins are selected at link time. (Pre-compiled instrumented code
2674 :     can be re-loaded with different plugins in effect.) When an
2675 :     instrumented module is linked, whatever plugins are at that time
2676 :     enabled will come into effect for that module.
2677 :    
2678 :     To enable the back-trace plugin, load library $/trace-debug-profile.cm
2679 :     and invoke BackTrace.install() (e.g., from the interactive prompt).
2680 :     To enable the coverage plugin, load the same library and invoke
2681 :     Coverage.install().
2682 :    
2683 :     Back-traces are generated automatically on uncaught exceptions and
2684 :     when the code in question explicitly invokes BackTrace.trigger().
2685 :    
2686 :     Coverage (and execution frequency-) information must be queried
2687 :     explicitly by calling Coverage.not_covered and Coverage.hot_spots.

2805 :     Description:
2806 :    
2807 :     Implemented some CM magic to have
2808 :     file src/compiler/TopLevel/main/version.sml
2809 :     generated automagically.
2810 :     The version is taken from two files: config/version and config/release.
2811 :     The first is expected to contain a two-part version number such as 110.49.
2812 :     The second should contain a single number, but it may be missing.
2813 :    
2814 :     If the environment variable VERSIONTOOL_BUMP_RELEASE is defined at the
2815 :     time the version tool is loaded (which is the first time you say CMB.make),
2816 :     then the tool will increment the value stored in config/release every
2817 :     time CMB.make is invoked.
2818 :    
2819 :     The binfile format is now insensitive to anything beyond the first
2820 :     two components of a version number, so bumping the release does not render
2821 :     binfiles incompatible. Auto-bumping can be used to keep track of versions
2822 :     during development without invalidating existing binfiles.
2823 :    
2824 :     In any case, every CMB.make updates the date information in version.sml.

2838 :     Tag: blume-20040927-controls
2839 :     Description:
2840 :    
2841 :     Added two pieces of functionality to the Controls interface:
2842 :    
2843 :     1. val save'restore: 'a control -> unit -> unit
2844 :    
2845 :     grabs the current value of the control in stage 1 and restores it
2846 :     in stage 2.
2847 :    
2848 :     2. val set' : 'a control * 'a -> unit -> unit
2849 :    
2850 :     stores the given value into the control in stage 2 (i.e., delayed)
2851 :     but does all error checking in stage 1.
2852 :     (This is for string controls that need to do parse their argument --
2853 :     something that might fail. In some cases, notably in CM, one
2854 :     already knows the intended argument but wants to delay the actual
2855 :     assignment until a time when error recovery would be more difficult.)
2856 :    
2857 :     Changed the handling of controls in tool arguments to classes "sml" and
2858 :     "lazysml":
2859 :     - use Controls.save'restore as a more robust way of restoring the
2860 :     old value (in particular: without having to re-parse the string)
2861 :     - use controls to handle the "overload" keyword in the init group
2862 :     (I believe this change actually fixes a long-standing obscure bug.)

2867 :     Tag: blume-20040927-lazysml
2868 :     Description:
2869 :    
2870 :     Added a new tool class called "lazysml" to CM's tool chest. The only
2871 :     difference to "sml" is that compilation is done with Control.lazysml
2872 :     set to true. A source of class "lazysml" is automatically recognized
2873 :     by a file name suffix of ".lml".
2874 :    
2875 :     In addition to the above feature, the original class "sml" now also
2876 :     supports a tool argument "lazy" which has the same effect. As a
2877 :     result, the following three lines are equivalent:
2878 :    
2879 :     foo.sml : lazysml
2880 :     foo.sml : sml (lazy)
2881 :     foo.sml (lazy)
2882 :    
2883 :     The setting goes into effect both during parsing and during
2884 :     compilation. The original setting is restored right after parsing and
2885 :     after compilation, respectively.
2886 :    
2887 :     In addition to all the above, there is also a general mechanism to set
2888 :     ANY of the "controls" that are available at the command line via
2889 :     "-C..." on a per-sml-file basis. The same rules that apply for "lazy"
2890 :     apply as well. (In fact, "lazy" is implemented as a special case of
2891 :     the general mechanism.)
2892 :    
2893 :     The .cm file syntax uses a new keyword tool argument called "with".
2894 :     There are several ways of indicating the desired settings:
2895 :    
2896 :     foo.sml (with:parser.quotations=true)
2897 :     foo.sml (with:(name:parser.quotations value:true))
2898 :     foo.sml (with:(name:name1 value:value1 name:name2 value:value2 ...))
2899 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name2=value2 ...))
2900 :     foo.sml (with:(name1=value1 name:name2 value:value2 name3=value3 ...))
2901 :    
2902 :     etc.
2903 :    
2904 :     Another possible abbreviation is to leave out the =v or value:v part
2905 :     if the name refers to a boolean control (in which case the value is
2906 :     taken to be true). Thus, one could get lazy sml also by saying:

3263 :     Description:
3264 :    
3265 :     Changed the interface of structures Timer and Unix to match the most
3266 :     recent Basis spec.
3267 :    
3268 :     In the case of Unix there still seems to be an open/weird issue:
3269 :    
3270 :     The {text,bin}{In,Out}streamOf functions are supposed to create
3271 :     fresh streams whenever they are called -- as opposed to have them
3272 :     return the same stream every time. This design is supposed to
3273 :     prevent space leaks caused by proc values hanging on to streams.
3274 :    
3275 :     The reap function, on the other hand, is supposed to close the
3276 :     streams. This cannot be done without having a handle on the
3277 :     stream in proc after all...
3278 :    
3279 :     I took the liberty to implement the following stopgap solution:
3280 :    
3281 :     The proc value hangs on to the most recently created stream(s).
3282 :     Reap closes those. If either or both of the two streams hadn't
3283 :     been created at all yet, then reap will close the corresponding
3284 :     file descriptors directly.
3285 :    
3286 :     PS: I don't understand the original space leak argument anymore. If
3287 :     a proc hangs on to the imperative stream, then I/O operations on those
3288 :     will advance the state of the cached stream and avoid the space leak.

3303 :    
3304 :     CM now ignores (but still accepts) the "owner" information in group
3305 :     descriptions. The owner of a group is its next enclosing
3306 :     library. Each group must have a unique owner. (There is a virtual
3307 : mblume 1505 "toplevel" library that owns groups which are not nested within a real
3308 : mblume 1498 library.) Previously, each group had to explicitly declare its owner,
3309 :     and CM would check that such a declaration is correct. The new scheme
3310 :     is to have CM check that for each group there is precisely one owning
3311 :     library.
3312 :    
3313 :     The advantage of the new scheme is that the programmer no longer needs
3314 :     to maintain the somewhat annoying owner information. The downside is
3315 :     that CM cannot enforce the ownership rule across multiple runs of
3316 :     CM.make. Fortunately, enclosing the same group in two different
3317 :     libraries A and B which are not part of the same program does not
3318 :     cause real problems.

3324 :     Description:
3325 :    
3326 :     Made the win32 version work again. (Strangely, a misplaced comma had
3327 :     slipped into win32-process.c which prevented the runtime from being
3328 :     compiled correctly.)
3329 :    
3330 :     Also, included a minor addition to ml-build.bat analogous to what was
3331 :     done in blume-20040519-ml-build.

3336 :     Tag: blume-20040519-ml-build
3337 :     Description:
3338 :    
3339 :     Arranged for ml-build to clean up after itself a little bit better.
3340 :     The script generates a temporary SML source file and compiles it using
3341 :     CM, so CM generates metadata (GUID, SKEL, objectfile) for it. It now
3342 :     gets rid of those at the end, so they don't accumulate under .cm.
3343 :    
3344 :     This required a minor change to install.sh because the name of the
3345 :     metadata directory (default: .cm) is actually configurable at
3346 :     installation time.

3361 :     Description:
3362 :    
3363 :     Added previously missing support for many socket-related functions
3364 :     under win32. Thanks to David Hansel <hansel@reactive-systems.com>
3365 :     for the voluminous patch!
3366 :    
3367 :     (I have not tested this patch under win32 yet.)
3368 :    
3369 : mblume 1490 Here is David's e-mail:
3370 :    
3371 :     Hi,
3372 :    
3373 :     Attached to this email you find a diff against sml/nj 110.45
3374 :     that will enable socket support under Windows.
3375 :    
3376 :     To apply the patch (using unix or cygwin)
3377 :     1) gunzip runtime.diff.gz
3378 :     2) "cd" into "src/runtime" in the source tree of a fresh
3379 :     110.45 installation.
3380 :     3) patch -p 1 < [your/path/to]runtime.diff
3381 :    
3382 : blume 2155 The code compiles fine but has NOT yet been extensively tested.
3383 :     I only ran a few tests for basic socket client functionality
3384 :     (which worked fine). Especially the functions that use ioctl
3385 : mblume 1490 are not tested at all and might not work (see below).
3386 :    
3387 :     I implemented this since we want to move to a newer version of sml/nj
3388 :     but need socket support in order to use it. This is the first time I
3389 :     even had a look at the sml/nj source, so please review my changes
3390 :     before making this part of the distribution! Here are a few issues
3391 : blume 2155 that I think might be better for someone to solve who is more
3392 : mblume 1490 familiar with the sml/nj source (and socket programming):
3393 :    
3394 :     - getnetbyaddr.c and getnetbyname.c will raise a "not implemented"
3395 :     exception since I could not figure out what the windows equivalent
3396 :     of these functions is
3397 :    
3398 :     - In sockets-osdep.h there are a some #include statements that are
3399 :     only used in a few files that include sockets-osdep.h
3400 :    
3401 :     - In smlnj-sock-lib.c, function init_fn() calls WSAStartup() but
3402 :     does not process its return value since I don't know how to
3403 :     report an error upwards.
3404 :    
3405 :     - It would probably be good to have a call to WSACleanup() when
3406 : blume 2155 the library is unloaded (if there is such a possibility).
3407 : mblume 1490 Otherwise I think Windows will take care of this automatically
3408 :     when the process finishes.
3409 :    
3410 :     - I used ioctlsocket() as a replacement for ioctl() but I have
3411 :     no idea if that is actually the proper replacement on Windows.
3412 :    
3413 :     - All these issues are marked in the code by "FIXME" comments.
3414 :    
3415 : blume 2155 We use sml/nj extensively in our products and are quite happy
3416 :     with it. I hope this contribution will help you.
3417 : mblume 1490
3418 :     Keep up the good work!

3502 :    
3503 : blume 2155 does not work on Windows unless we explicitly export symbols
3504 :     such as 'malloc' during linking. We fixed this by explicitly
3505 : allenleung 1468 exporting the required symbols with the magic gcc incantation:
3506 :    
3507 :     -Wl,--export-all cygwin.def
3508 :

3510 : blume 2155 we wish to export.
3511 : allenleung 1468
3512 : blume 2155 I suspect this is a Windows problem and we'll have to
3513 :     do the same (somehow with windows compilers) when
3514 : allenleung 1468 we build the native win32 version with the system
3515 : blume 2155 calls LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress.

3641 :     Description:
3642 :    
3643 :     I modified the read-eval-print loop so that the autoloader gets
3644 :     invoked whenever the prettyprinter tries to look up a symbol that
3645 :     is not currently defined in the toplevel environment but which
3646 :     appears in CM's autoload registry. As a result, we see far fewer of
3647 :     those ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names in the prettyprinter's output.
3648 :    
3649 :     In addition to this I tried to clean up some pieces of the Basis
3650 :     implementation (e.g., Socket, Word8Array) in order to prevent other
3651 :     instances of these ?.Foo.Bar.xxx names from being printed.
3652 :    
3653 :     The mechanism that picks names for types still needs some work, though.
3654 :     (Right now it seems that if there is a type A.t which is defined to
3655 : mblume 1394 be B.u, but B is unavailable at toplevel, then A.t gets printed as
3656 :     "?.B.u" although the perhaps more sensible solution would be to use
3657 : mblume 1393 "A.t" in this case. In other words, the prettyprinter should follow
3658 :     a chain of DEFtycs not farther than there are corresponding toplevel
3659 :     names in the current environment.)

3665 :     Description:
3666 :    
3667 :     Another installer tweak: All the ML code for the installer is now
3668 :     compiled during CMB.make and put into a little library called
3669 :     $smlnj/installer.cm. The installation then simply invokes
3670 :    
3671 :     sml -m $smlnj/installer.cm
3672 :    
3673 :     and everything happens automagically.
3674 :    
3675 :     Win32: ML code senses value of environment variable SMLNJ_HOME.
3676 :     Unix: ML code senses values of environment variables ROOT, CONFIGDIR,
3677 :     and BINDIR.

3679 :     The new scheme guarantees that the ML code responsible for the installation
3680 :     is in sync with the APIs of the main system. Also, the installer is
3681 :     somewhat faster because the installer script is precompiled.

3699 :     Description:
3700 :    
3701 :     1. Fixed SOCKET API and implementation to match Basis spec.
3702 :     This required changing the internal representation of sockets to one
3703 :     that remembers (for each socket file descriptor) whether it is currently
3704 :     blocking or non-blocking. This state is maintained lazily (i.e., a system
3705 :     call is made only if the state actually needs to change).
3706 :    
3707 :     2. OS-specific details of sockets were moved into separate files, thus
3708 :     making it possible to unify the bulk of the socket implementations
3709 :     between Unix and Win32.
3710 :    
3711 :     3. CML's socket API changed accordingly.
3712 :     (Note that we need to remove non-blocking functions from this API
3713 :     since they are redundant in the case of CML!)
3714 :    
3715 :     4. CML's socket implementation now makes use of non-blocking functions
3716 :     provided by Basis, thus removing all OS-dependent code from this part
3717 :     of CML.
3718 :    
3719 :     5. Changed Real64.precision from 52 to 53. Minor cleanup in Real64 code.

3739 :     2. changed default CM "metadata" directory name to ".cm" (instead of "CM")
3740 :     3. tweaked installer so that another name instead of .cm can be chosen
3741 :     at install time (by setting the CM_DIR_ARC environment variable
3742 :     during installation); once installation is complete, the name is
3743 :     fixed

3760 :     Description:
3761 :    
3762 :     1. Exported fractionsPerSecond etc. from TimeImp (but not from Time as
3763 :     this seems to be controversial at the moment) and used those in
3764 :     Posix.ProcEnv.times.
3765 :    
3766 :     2. Added Time.{from,to}Nanoseconds to Time.
3767 :    
3768 :     3. Improved Real.{from,to}LargeInt by avoiding needless calculations.
3769 :     For example, fromLargeInt never needs to look at more than 3 "big
3770 :     digits" to get its 53 bits of precision.

3781 :    
3782 :     Removed some of the "magic" constants in real64.sml and replaced them
3783 :     with code that generates these values from their corresponding
3784 :     integer counterparts.

3831 :     Tag: blume-20030909-installer
3832 :     Description:
3833 :    
3834 :     Rewrote large parts of config/install.sh in SML (config/libinstall.sml).
3835 :     Modified config/install.bat to take advantage of it. Also modified
3836 :     config/install.sh (and called it config/new-install.sh) to take advantage
3837 :     of it on Unix systems. (The SML code is (supposed to be) platform-
3838 :     independent.)
3839 :    
3840 :     The installer can now install everything under Win32
3841 :     as well as under *nix as long as it compiles.
3842 :    
3843 :     Other changes:
3844 :    
3845 :     - made CML compile again under Win32
3846 :     - made eXene compile under Win32 (by providing a fake structure UnixSock
3847 :     and by using OS.Process.getEnv instead of Posix.ProcEnv.getenv)
3848 :     - fixed a bug in nowhere: it assumed that type OS.Process.status is the
3849 :     same as type int; under Win32 it isn't
3850 :     - fixed some slice-related problems in the win32-specific parts of CML
3851 :     - added a functor argument "sameVol" to os-path-fn.sml in the Basis
3852 :     (under Win32, the volume name is case-insensitive, and the
3853 :     OS.Path code compares volume names for equality)

3863 :     CM depends on it. (CM otherwise goes into an infinite loop in certain

3869 : mblume 1352 Tag: blume-20030905-slices-etc
3870 : mblume 1350 Description:
3871 :    
3872 :     1. Changed interface to vectors and arrays in Basis to match
3873 :     (draft) Basis spec.
3874 :     2. Added signatures and implementations of slices according to
3875 :     Basis spec.
3876 :     3. Edited source code throughout the system to make it compile again
3877 :     under 1. and 2. (In some cases code had to be added to have it
3878 :     match the new signatures.)
3879 :     4. MLRISC should be backward-compatible: the copies of the originals
3880 :     of files that needed to change under 3. were retained, the .cm files
3881 :     check the compiler version number and use old versions when
3882 :     appropriate.
3883 :     5. Changed type of OS.FileSys.readDir and Posix.FileSys.readdir to
3884 :     dirstream -> string option (in accordance with Basis spec).
3885 :     6. When generating code that counts lines, ml-lex used function
3886 :     CharVector.foldli, taking advantage of its old interface.
3887 :     This has been replaced with the corresponding code from
3888 :     CharVectorSlice. (html-lex must be re-lexed!)
3889 :     7. BitArray in smlnj-lib/Util has been extended/modified to match the
3890 :     new MONO_ARRAY signature. (Do we need BitArraySlice?)
3891 :     8. Removed temporary additions (fromInternal, toInternal) from the
3892 :     (now obsolete) IntInf in smlnj-lib/Util.
3893 :     9. Cleaned up structure Byte.
3894 :     10. Added localOffset, scan, and fromString to Date (according to spec).
3895 :     Cleaned/corrected implementation of Date.
3896 :     (Still need to check for correctness; implement better canonicalizeDate.)
3897 :     11. Added "scan" to signature IEEE_REAL.
3898 :     12. Some improvements to IntInf [in particular: efficiency-hack for
3899 :     mod and rem when second operand is 2 (for parity checks).]
3900 :     13. Changed representation of type Time.time, using a single IntInf.int
3901 :     value counting microseconds. This considerably simplified the
3902 :     implementation of structure Time. We now support negative time
3903 :     values; scan and fromString handle signs.
3904 :     14. Functor PrimIO now takes two additional arguments (VectorSlice and
3905 :     ArraySlice).

3910 :     Tag: blume-20030828-intinf
3911 :     Description:
3912 :    
3913 :     This is a major update which comes with a version number bump
3914 :     (110.42.99 -- yes, we are really close to 110.43 :-), NEW BOOTFILES,
3915 :     and an implementation of IntInf in the Basis.
3916 :    
3917 :     There are a fairly large number of related changes and updates throughout
3918 :     the system:
3919 :    
3920 :     Basis:
3921 :     - Implemented IntInf.
3922 :     - Made LargeInt a projection of IntInf (by filtering through INTEGER).
3923 : mblume 1348 - Added some missing Real64 operations, most notably Real.toLargeInt.
3924 : mblume 1347 - Added FixedInt as a synonym for Int32.
3925 :    
3926 :     compiler:
3927 :     * Added support for a built-in intinf type.
3928 :     - literals
3929 :     - pattern matching
3930 :     - conversion shortcuts (Int32.fromLarge o Int.toLarge etc.)
3931 :     - overloading on literals and operations
3932 :    
3933 :     This required adding a primitive type intinf, some additional
3934 :     primops, and implementations for several non-trivial intinf
3935 :     operations in Core. (The intinf type is completely abstract
3936 :     to the compiler; all operations get delegated back to the Core.)
3937 :    
3938 :     * Intinf equality is handled by polyequal. However, the compiler
3939 :     does not print its usual warning in this case (since polyequal
3940 :     is the right thing to do there).
3941 :    
3942 :     * Improved the organization of structure InlineT.
3943 :    
3944 :     * A word about conversion primops:
3945 :     If conversions involving intinf do not cancel out during
3946 : mblume 1348 CPS contract, then the compiler must insert calls to Core functions.
3947 : mblume 1347 Since all core access must be resolved already during the FLINT
3948 :     translate phase, it would be too late a the time of CPS contract
3949 : mblume 1348 to add new Core calls. For this reason, conversion primops
3950 : mblume 1347 for intinf carry two arguments: 1. the numeric argument that
3951 :     they are supposed to convert, and 2. the Core function that
3952 :     can help with this conversion if necessary. If CPS contract
3953 : mblume 1348 eliminates a primop, then the associated Core function becomes
3954 :     dead and goes away. Intinf conversion primops that do not get
3955 :     eliminated by CPS contract get rewritten into calls of their
3956 :     core functions by a separate, new phase.
3957 : mblume 1347
3958 :     interactive system:
3959 :     - Control.Print.intinfDepth controls max length of intinf constants
3960 :     being printed. (Analogous to Control.Print.stringDepth.)
3961 :     - Cleanup in printutil and pputil: got rid of unused stuff and
3962 :     duplicates; replaced some of the code with code that makes better
3963 :     use of library functionality.
3964 :    
3965 :     CM:
3966 :     Bugfix: parse-errors in init group (system/smlnj/init/init.cmi)
3967 :     are no longer silent.
3968 :    
3969 :     CKIT:
3970 :     Fixed mismatched uses of Int32 and LargeInt. I always decided
3971 :     in favor of LargeInt -- which is now the same as IntInf.
3972 :     CKIT-knowledgable people should check whether this is what's
3973 :     intended and otherwise change things back to using Int32 or
3974 :     FixedInt.
3975 :    
3976 :     Throughout the code:
3977 : mblume 1348 Started using IntInf.int literals and built-in operations
3978 : mblume 1347 (e.g., comparison with 0) where this seems appropriate.

3998 :     Description:
3999 :    
4000 :     Version number bumped to 110.42.9. NEW BOOTFILES!!!
4001 :    
4002 :     http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu/dist/working/110.42.9/
4003 :    
4004 :     This patch restores SML/NJ's ability to run under win32. There are a
4005 :     number of changes, including fixes for several bugs that had gone
4006 :     unnoticed until now:
4007 :    
4008 :     - uname "CYGWIN_NT*" is recognized as win32 (This is relevant only when
4009 :     trying to run the win32 version from within cygwin.)
4010 :    
4011 :     - There are a number of simple .bat scripts that substitute for their
4012 :     corresponding Unix shell-scripts. (See below.)
4013 :    
4014 :     - The internals of ml-build have been modified slightly. The main
4015 :     difference is that instead of calling ".link-sml" (or link-sml.bat)
4016 :     using OS.Process.system, the ML process delegates this task back
4017 :     to the script. Otherwise problems arise in mixed environments such
4018 :     as Cygwin where scripts look and work like Unix scripts, but
4019 :     where OS.Process.system cannot run them.
4020 :    
4021 :     - In CM, the srcpath pickler used native pathname syntax -- which
4022 :     is incorrect in the case of cross-compilation. The new pickle format
4023 :     is independent of platform-specific naming conventions.
4024 :    
4025 :     - Path configuration files (such as lib/pathconfig) can now choose
4026 :     between native and standard syntax. Placing a line of the form
4027 :    
4028 :     standard!
4029 :    
4030 :     into the file causes all subsequent paths to be interpreted using
4031 :     CM standard pathname syntax (= Unix conventions); a line
4032 :    
4033 :     native!
4034 :    
4035 :     switches back to native style. This was needed so that
4036 :     path config files can be written portably, see src/system/pathconfig.
4037 :    
4038 :     - Runtime system:
4039 :    
4040 :     - win32-filesys.c: get_file_time and set_file_time now
4041 :     access modification time, not creation time.
4042 :    
4043 :     - I/O code made aware of new array representation.
4044 :    
4045 :     - Bug fixes in X86.prim.masm.
4046 :    
4047 :     - src/system/makeml made aware of win32. (For use under cygwin
4048 :     and other Unix-environments for windows.)
4049 :    
4050 :     - In Basis, fixed off-by-one error in win32-io.sml (function vecF)
4051 :     which caused BinIO.inputAll to fail consistently.
4052 :    
4053 :     .bat scripts:
4054 :    
4055 :     Windows .bat scripts assume that SMLNJ_HOME is defined.
4056 :    
4057 :     - sml.bat, ml-yacc.bat, ml-lex.bat: Driver scripts for standalone
4058 :     applications (sml, ml-yacc, ml-lex).
4059 :     - ml-build.bat: analogous to ml-build.
4060 :     - config\install.bat: Analogous to config/install.sh. This requires
4061 :     that SMLNJ_HOME is set and that Microsoft Visual C is ready to use.
4062 :     (nmake etc. must be on the path, and vcvars32 must have been run.)
4063 :     Moreover, sources for ml-lex and ml-yacc need to exist under src,
4064 :     and the bootfile hierarchy must have been unpacked under
4065 :     sml.boot.x86-win32.
4066 :     The script is very primitive and does a poor job at error checking.
4067 :     It only installs the base system, ml-lex, and ml-yacc. No other
4068 :     libraries are being installed (i.e., you get only those that
4069 :     are part of the compiler.)
4070 :     - link-sml.bat: analogous to .link-sml, but not currently used
4071 :    
4072 :     Unrelated bug fixes:
4073 :    
4074 :     - ml-nlffigen now exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete
4075 :     types.
4076 :     - Added getDevice to PP/src/pp-debug-fn.sml. (Would not compile
4077 :     otherwise.)

4100 :     Tag: blume-20030517-complete
4101 :     Description:
4102 :    
4103 :     Two changes:
4104 :    
4105 :     1. Added a flag for controlling whether non-exhaustive bindings will
4106 :     be treated as errors (default is false).
4107 :     2. Cleaned up the *entire* source tree so that CMB.make goes through
4108 :     without a single non-exhaustive match- or bind warning.

4113 :     Tag: blume-20030517-absyn
4114 :     Description:
4115 :    
4116 :     1. Added cases for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, and ORELSE to Absyn.
4117 :    
4118 :     This mainly affects the quality of error messages. However, some
4119 :     of the code is now more straightforward than before. (Treatment of
4120 :     the above four constructs in translate.sml is much simpler than
4121 :     the "macro-expansion" that was going on before. Plus, the mach-
4122 :     compiler no longer gets invoked just to be able to compile an
4123 :     if-expression.)
4124 :    
4125 :     2. The ErrorMsg.Error exception is now caught and absorbed by the
4126 :     interactive loop.

4132 :     Description:
4133 :    
4134 : blume 2155 Ported the runtime system to cygwin, which uses the unix
4135 : allenleung 1327 x86-unix bin files. Missing/buggy features:
4136 :    
4137 : blume 2155 o getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr: these functions seem to be missing in
4138 : allenleung 1327 the Cygwin library.
4139 :     o Ctrl-C handling may be flaky.
4140 :     o Windows system calls and Windows I/O are not supported.
4141 :    
4142 :     A new set of binfiles is located at:
