35        x86MCEmitter crashed when the immediate operand to MOVB was outside

81    Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code.  Many minor
82    improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes.  Prepared
83    ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure.  Changed
84    the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
85    stream creation from several kinds of sources).  Overall, the
86    tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
87    change in a way that would break compatibility.  More work,
88    however, is needed in the documentation.

94    
95    Implemented library installer.  Moved CM plugin code for
96    ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
97    their respective trees.  Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
98    and ml-antlr.  Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
99    and ml-antlr.
100    
101    For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
102    CM tools.  (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
103    there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
104    of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)

111    Added SMLofNJ.shiftArgs which is like a shell's "shift" command.
112    Modified CM's startup code to use shiftArgs as it processes
113    command line arguments.  This way, the init code in each .sml-file
114    or library that is mentioned at the top level will see only
115    those arguments that have not yet been processed at this point.
116    In other words, the init code can "seize control" and process the
117    remaining command line.

175    Date: 2006/12/08 09:50:00 CST
176    Description:
177    
178    Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
179    causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
180    command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
181    as long as all target files exist.
182    
183    This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
184    svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
185    yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig.  (Ml-yacc would
186    be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
187    available at that time.)

227    Description:
228    
229    New working release (110.60).  NEW BOOTFILES!
230    
231    This is the first subversion-hosted release.  There are also changes
232    to the directory layout.  Here is a table:
233    
234    (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
235    
236      config -> config
237    
238      src/cm -> base/cm
239      src/compiler -> base/compiler
240      src/runtime -> base/runtime
241      src/system -> base/system
242    
243      src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
244    
245      src/READMES -> base/READMES
246      src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
247         for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
248                           MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
249    
250      src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
251      src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
252      ckit -> ckit
253      src/cml -> cml
254      src/eXene -> eXene
255      src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
256      src/lexgen -> lexgen
257      src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
258      src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
259      src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
260      src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
261      src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
262      src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
263      src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
264    
265    In addition, there is also a new
266    
267      ml-lpt
268    
269    directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
270    ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
271    LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
272    
273    The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
274    via subversion.  For this, it is useful to first check out
275    
276       svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
277    
278    and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH.  This provides
279    access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
280    and refresh-all.sh.
281    
282    To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
283    
284       checkout-all.sh [dir]
285    
286    where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
287    
288    This creates the above directory layout.  Each subdirectory of
289    the root is under individual subversion control.  The stat-all.sh
290    and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
291    each of these subtrees.
292    
293    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
294    Name: Matthias Blume (http://www.tti-c.org/blume/)
295    Date: 2006/11/02 12:20:00 CST
296    Description:
297    
298    Reorganized directory layout.
299    
300    This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
301    
302    The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
303    to a well-defined part of the overall system.  Each part can be
304    maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
305    although currently we still serve everything out of the main
306    smlnj-gforge tree.
307    
308    Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
309    layout.  The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
310    "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
311    layout into SML source code.  The main script used by the installer
312    is in config/actions.
313    
314    The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
315    be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel.  The "src" directory
316    itself has moved down into a subtree called "base".  (We may eventually
317    get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
318    
319    The layout is now as follows:
320    
321      toplevel tree name | default repository
322                         | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
323      -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
324      config             | $gf/config/trunk
325                         |
326      base               | $gf/sml/trunk
327                         |
328      smlnj-lib          | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
329      MLRISC             | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
330                         |
331      ml-yacc            | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
332      ml-lex             | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
333      ml-burg            | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
334      lexgen             | $gf/lexgen/trunk
335      heap2asm           | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
336                         |
337      cml                | $gf/cml/trunk
338      eXene              | $gf/eXene/trunk
339      ckit               | $gf/ckit/trunk
340      nlffi              | $gf/nlffi/trunk
341                         |
342      smlnj-c            | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
343    
344    In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
345    and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
346    
347       admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
348          -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their
349             default repositories; if dir is missing, checkout into .
350       admin/refresh-all.sh [dir]
351          -- looks at all trees (from the above list) in dir (default: .)
352             and runs "svn update" if the tree exists and is under
353             subversion control;
354             non-existing or non-subversion trees are skipped
355       admin/stat-all.sh [dir]
356          -- like refresh-all.sh, but runs "svn stat" instead

376    
377      eXene:
378    
379         * committed changes to eXene from Alley Stoughton:
380             "fixed bugs in X authorization and resource handling, as well
381              as in the pile and viewport widgets"
382    
383      Runtime:
384        * fixed linking problem with NetBSD 3.x.
385    
386      Lexgen:
387        * lexgen tool handles non-ascii characters in 7-bit mode the same
388          way that ml-lex does
389    
390        * lexgen propagates exceptions the same way that ml-lex does
391    
392      CML:
393        * Fixed a bug in the SyncVar polling functions (iGetPoll,
394          mTakePoll, and mGetPoll) that could lead to livelock.

504    Hooked code for Darwin-specific Intel ABI into main compiler.
505    (This is a temporary solution which relies on the fact that the

507    intel mac from generic x86 unix code and make separate sets of binaries.)

536    Description:
537    
538    Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work.  This is fixed
539    now.  (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
540    at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
541    be referred to by another name.  In 110.57 this would be
542    $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm.  I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
543    to be valid as well.)

598    Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
599    Description:
600    
601    Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm.  This
602    file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
603    run of CMB.make.  Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
604    it.  Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
605    $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library.  (At least that's true for
606    the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change.  In the future it
607    might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
608    $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
609    compiler itself uses.)
610    
611    Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
612    bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

617    Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
618    Description:
619    
620    This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
621    the system:
622    
623       $/basis.cm
624       $/smlnj-lib.cm
625       $/pp-lib.cm
626       $/controls-lib.cm
627       $/html-lib.cm
628       $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
629    
630    These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
631    of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
632    
633       $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
634       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
635       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
636       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
637       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
638       $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
639    
640    This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
641    versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
642    their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above).  In other
643    words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
644    compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
645    
646    A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
647    MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler.  I did some
648    cleanup on this code.
649    
650    A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
651    responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
652    not need, but that are typically required by user code.

832    Description:
833    
834    Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
835    after configuration variables have been changed.
836    
837       CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
838    
839    This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
840    heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
841    restarts the interactive system from scratch.  The original call of
842    CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
843    Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
844    
845    Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
846    the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
847    the heap image generation code in the boot code.

963    Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
964    Description:
965    
966    Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility.  This is
967    tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
968    It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
969    
970      - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
971    
972    To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
973    config/targets prior to installation.  (Notice that this is different
974    from "heap2exec" mentioned below.  Not a typo.)
975    
976    To perform an actual test, run the command
977    
978       $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
979    
980    (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
981    
982    For example, run
983    
984      $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
985    
986    This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
987    then invoke directly as a command.

1036    Windows style pathname, so problems arise when SMLNJ_HOME is set

1132    Tag: blume-20041124-position
1133    Description:
1134    
1135    The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
1136    equal to Int64.  The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
1137    for the time being.
1138    
1139    To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
1140    
1141    1. Start sml
1142    2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
1143    3. Type
1144          #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
1145    4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
1146    
1147    This is barely tested.  The only test so far was a little SML program
1148    counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
1149    reading it character-by-character.  That test was successful.
1150    
1151    In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
1152    added to the runtime system.

1195    - Stripped down the versiontool: It now only handles the version number.
1196      The date string is generated at bootstrap time (during makeml).
1197    
1198    - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
1199      translated.  In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
1200      This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
1201      more efficient code.  Important examples for where this matters are
1202      the new int64 and word64 types.

1219    All the pieces of Word64 are now there, with the exception of the
1220    conversions from and to LargeWord. (Eventually these need to be identities,
1221    but for the time being they don't even make sense because LargeWord is
1222    32-bit wide.)
1223    
1224    Also started to add similar support for Int64, but major pieces of that
1225    are still missing.

1231    Description:
1232    
1233    Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
1234    seem to work.  There are a few odd pieces missing.  In particular,
1235    I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
1236    at the moment.
1237    
1238    Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64.  But
1239    this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
1240    go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
1241    worse.  Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
1242    simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

1277      - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
1278      - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
1279        normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
1280    
1281      (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
1282       config/version, the rest is now automatic.)

1305        (the callee already pops the implicit argument which points to
1306         the space reserved for the result)
