34    nlffi was updated to work on Windows. It needed to pass in the correct
35    value for the name of the kernel32 DLL to obtain 'base' bindings.
36    Additionally updated the README for the most basic nlffi sample with
37    what you need to do on MacOSX and on Windows to make it work.

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

232    
233    After Aaron Turon's bug fix for ml-ulex (handling the ^ character
234    in legacy mode), re-ran the lexer generator on all lex input files
235    and committed the results.
236    
237    This should fix the problem with ckit and nlffi that was reported
238    by Vesa A. Norrman.

253    
254    3rd merge of base from primop-branch-3 into the trunk.
255    Additional bug fixes included:
256    
257     * Timer.cpu_timer, etc. type printing corrected (by making
258         Timer have opaque sig constraint in basis/Implementation/timer.sml)
259     * Infinite loop in FLINT (tests/typing/tests/25.sml) (fix by

265    Description:
266    
267    Fixed some bugs in new Div code in FLINT/trans/translate.sml.
268    
269    Also, changed the handling of "no core access":  When translate.sml
270    needs access to a core exception at a time when the core has not
271    been set up yet (this only happens when compiling system/smlnj/init/*),
272    then don't bother generating the corresponding tests.
273    
274    The old scheme was to generate a bogus value to be used in place of
275    the exception.  Unfortunately, that confuses the plambda type checker.
276    Moreover, it does not do any good, because at runtime we don't expect
277    such an exception to be ever raised.  (The code in system/smlnj/init/*
278    has to be written very carefully with this in mind!)

290    Description:
291    
292    FLINT/trans/translate.sml now wraps all DIV/MOD/QUOT/REM operations
293    with an explicit test for zero division.  This should fixes several
294    regressions and makes it possible for downstream optimization phases
295    to treat these operations as "pure" when they are applied to unsigned
296    operands.

312    A number of fixes related to the formatting of dates.  These include fixes

319    Description:
320    
321    CMB (and CM) now automatically defines the CM "preprocessor" symbol
322    NO_PLUGINS during "makeml -rebuild" or when CM operates in "slave" mode.
323    
324      (In addition, CMB_REBUILD_MODE is defined for makeml -rebuild,
325       CM_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves while running CM.make
326       or CM.rebuild, and CMB_SLAVE_MODE is defined in attached slaves
327       while running CMB.make.  The point is that the single symbol
328       NO_PLUGINS is definde in all three cases.)
329    
330    I changed the three locations within the sources that get compiled
331    during CMB.make where ml-yacc or ml-lex input is processed: When
332    NO_PLUGINS defined, then the use of the mlyacc and mllex tools
333    is bypassed.
334    
335    When bootstrapping new versions of the compiler, there can be
336    situations where the plugin tools for ml-yacc and ml-lex (or ml-ulex)
337    are not available or otherwise not operational.  In this case one can
338    manually define the NO_PLUGINS symbol prior to running CMB.make().  To
339    do so, the following command should be issued at the interactive
340    prompt:
341    
342       #set (CMB.symval "NO_PLUGINS") (SOME 1);
343    
344    A CMB.make with NO_PLUGINS defined relies on the existence of the
345    files that normally would be generated by ml-yacc and ml-lex.
346    (Copies of these files are in the repository.)

362    Description:
363    
364    Changed the installation mechanism for CM tool plugins.  These are
365    just libaries and now get installed like ordinary libaries.
366    
367    There are now a number of new installation targets that give some
368    fine-grain control over what classes and suffixes are known, and what
369    they will map to.
370    See config/targets for details.
371    
372    The code that caused plugin installation as part of running a
373    tool's "build" script has been removed.  (The build script is for
374    building, not for installing.)

380    
381    Added a boolean control named cm.tolerate-tool-failures (env. variable
382    name: CM_TOLERATE_TOOL_FAILURES).  The default is false and makes
383    CM fail if a shell tool reports a non-success exit status.  If
384    the control is set to true, then CM will press on after tool failures
385    in the event that the target files exist (even though they are
386    considered outdated).  Turning the control to true can be useful for
387    bootstrapping.

393    
394    Merge of ml-lpt revisions for 110.64.
395    
396    The name of several ml-lpt-lib modules has changed:
397      Repair        => AntlrRepair
398      StreamPos     => AntlrStreamPos
399      ErrHandlerFn  => AntlrErrHandler
400      EBNF          => AntlrEBNF
401    
402    The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
403    %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
404    same specification.  The semantics are such that each new declaration
405    extends the previous ones.  This does not apply to %start or %name,
406    of course.
407    
408    Importing a grammar via %import now includes *all* declarations in from
409    the imported grammar, except for %name, %entry, and %start.  Tokens
410    and nonterminals can be dropped using the new %dropping clause of the
411    %import directive; the separate %drop and %extend have been removed.
412    
413    We now allow optional type annotations on nonterminals, using the %nonterms
414    directive as in ml-yacc.
415    
416    The refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
417    cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.
418    
419    The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
420    its error messages have been greatly improved.  Error repair for
421    generated parsers has been completely rewritten, and is now both
422    much faster and more accurate.
423    
424    ml-ulex is now more lenient with escape codes (non-SML-standard
425    escape codes are now interpreted literally, so e.g. \| denotes "|").
426    Also, character classes may now include a "-" character at the beginning
427    as is standard in most other regexp tools.
428    
429    All of these changes are documented in the user guide, which has
430    been updated and improved with this merge.

447    
448    Preliminary commit of large ml-lpt revisions (more to come for 110.64).
449    The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
450    %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
451    same specification.  The semantics are such that each new declaration
452    extends the previous ones.  Grammar extension constructs have also
453    changed.  We now allow type annotations on nonterminals.  Finally,
454    the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
455    cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.  All of these
456    changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for ml-lpt.
457    
458    The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
459    its error messages have been greatly improved.  There has also been
460    some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this
461    will be further improved in 110.64.

470    Significant changes in FLINT and the front end, mostly having to do
471    with a reorganized system for handling primops.  Various bug fixes
472    and improvements in printing signatures.

477    Description:
478    
479    Preliminary commit of large ml-lpt revisions (more to come for 110.64).
480    The ml-antlr specification format has changed: declarations such as
481    %tokens and nonterminal definitions can occur *multiple* times in the
482    same specification.  The semantics are such that each new declaration
483    extends the previous ones.  Grammar extension constructs have also
484    changed.  We now allow type annotations on nonterminals.  Finally,
485    the refcell construct is now implemented using SML's regular reference
486    cells, so the :== and !! notation has been deprecated.  All of these
487    changes will appear in the 110.64 user guide for ml-lpt.
488    
489    The ml-antlr tool now does much more checking of specifications, and
490    its error messages have been greatly improved.  There has also been
491    some work on the error repair process for generated parsers, but this
492    will be further improved in 110.64.

499    More Basis fixes: The Char.fromString (etc.) functions did not handle
500    the "\uxxxx" escape sequence.  There is still an outstanding bug with
501    String.fromString the tail is a format escape.  I added a comment to
502    this effect in Basis/Implementation/string.sml.

583    Added preliminary support in MLRISC for Staged Allocation, a technique
584    for specifying calling conventions (see
585    http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~nr/pubs/staged-abstract.html).
586    Initially, we plan to use this code to generate C calls for the AMD64.
587    
588    The staged allocation code base resides in MLRISC/staged-allocation,
589    and specialized calling conventions go in MLRISC/ARCH/staged-allocation.

655    
656    Brought ml-lpt manual up-to-date with the code.  Many minor
657    improvements to the tools, and a few minor bugfixes.  Prepared
658    ml-lpt-lib for integration with new UTF8 structure.  Changed
659    the interface for creating streams in ml-ulex (we now support
660    stream creation from several kinds of sources).  Overall, the
661    tools are now quite stable, and their interfaces are unlikely to
662    change in a way that would break compatibility.  More work,
663    however, is needed in the documentation.

669    
670    Implemented library installer.  Moved CM plugin code for
671    ml-burg, ml-lex, and ml-yacc out of CM source tree and into
672    their respective trees.  Implemented CM plugin for ml-ulex
673    and ml-antlr.  Used library installer for ml-burg, ml-ulex,
674    and ml-antlr.
675    
676    For ml-yacc and ml-lex we continue to have permanently "plugged-in"
677    CM tools.  (It turns out to be too messy to do otherwise because
678    there is too much code that during installation relies on the presence
679    of these tools -- resulting in a tricky ordering problem.)

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

759    Description:
760    
761    Added code to CM's "standard shell tool" implementation which
762    causes it to tolerate (with a warning) the situation where the shell
763    command fails (e.g., due to the shell command's non-existence)
764    as long as all target files exist.
765    
766    This makes it possible to, e.g., build ml-yacc from sources even if
767    svn checkout messed up the time stamps on files in such a way that
768    yacc.grm is younger than yacc.grm.sml or yacc.grm.sig.  (Ml-yacc would
769    be needed to re-process yacc.grm, but obviously it might not yet be
770    available at that time.)

811    
812    New working release (110.60).  NEW BOOTFILES!
813    
814    This is the first subversion-hosted release.  There are also changes
815    to the directory layout.  Here is a table:
816    
817    (All pathnames are relative to the SML/NJ "root" directory.)
818    
819      config -> config
820    
821      src/cm -> base/cm
822      src/compiler -> base/compiler
823      src/runtime -> base/runtime
824      src/system -> base/system
825    
826      src/cm/pgraph -> pgraph
827    
828      src/READMES -> base/READMES
829      src/$notefile -> base/NOTES/$notefile
830         for <notefile> in BOOT CVSNOTES CYGWININSTALL HISTORY INSTALL
831                           MACOSXINSTALL WININSTALL
832    
833      src/smlnj-lib -> smlnj-lib
834      src/MLRISC -> MLRISC
835      ckit -> ckit
836      src/cml -> cml
837      src/eXene -> eXene
838      src/heap2asm -> heap2asm
839      src/lexgen -> lexgen
840      src/ml-burg -> ml-burg
841      src/ml-lex -> ml-lex
842      src/ml-yacc -> ml-yacc
843      src/ml-nlffi-lib -> nlffi/lib
844      src/ml-nlffigen -> nlffi/gen
845      src/smlnj-c -> smlnj-c
846      src/tools/TraceDebugProf -> trace-debug-profile
847    
848    In addition, there is also a new
849    
850      ml-lpt
851    
852    directory containing two new program generator tools: ml-ulex and
853    ml-antlr (a lexer generator that handles unicode and an ANTRL-inspired
854    LL(k) parser generator). These tools are currently "beta-quality"
855    
856    The latest versios of the sources can now be obtained anonymously
857    via subversion.  For this, it is useful to first check out
858    
859       svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj/admin
860    
861    and put the resulting directory on your shell's PATH.  This provides
862    access to three shell scripts: checkout-all.sh, stat-all.sh,
863    and refresh-all.sh.
864    
865    To create a freshly checked-out copy of the sources, do
866    
867       checkout-all.sh [dir]
868    
869    where dir is the optional SML/NJ root directory (default is ".").
870    
871    This creates the above directory layout.  Each subdirectory of
872    the root is under individual subversion control.  The stat-all.sh
873    and refresh-al.sh scripts apply "svn stat" or "svn update" to
874    each of these subtrees.

878    Date: 2006/11/02 12:20:00 CST
879    Description:
880    
881    Reorganized directory layout.
882    
883    This is a temporary solution, more reorganization is to come.
884    
885    The basic idea is to have a number of toplevel trees, each corresponding
886    to a well-defined part of the overall system.  Each part can be
887    maintained individually, even in separate source repositories,
888    although currently we still serve everything out of the main
889    smlnj-gforge tree.
890    
891    Installer and and scripts have been updated to reflect the new
892    layout.  The installer (base/src/system/smlnj/installer) is now
893    "scriptable" to avoid burning too much knowledge about the
894    layout into SML source code.  The main script used by the installer
895    is in config/actions.
896    
897    The main change is that many of the subdirectories of what used to
898    be known as "src" have moved to the toplevel.  The "src" directory
899    itself has moved down into a subtree called "base".  (We may eventually
900    get rid of the extra level of indirection represented by "src".)
901    
902    The layout is now as follows:
903    
904      toplevel tree name | default repository
905                         | (using gf=svn://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/smlnj)
906      -------------------+----------------------------------------------------
907      config             | $gf/config/trunk
908                         |
909      base               | $gf/sml/trunk
910                         |
911      smlnj-lib          | $gf/smlnj-lib/trunk
912      MLRISC             | $gf/MLRISC/trunk
913                         |
914      ml-yacc            | $gf/ml-yacc/trunk
915      ml-lex             | $gf/ml-lex/trunk
916      ml-burg            | $gf/ml-burg/trunk
917      lexgen             | $gf/lexgen/trunk
918      heap2asm           | $gf/heap2asm/trunk
919                         |
920      cml                | $gf/cml/trunk
921      eXene              | $gf/eXene/trunk
922      ckit               | $gf/ckit/trunk
923      nlffi              | $gf/nlffi/trunk
924                         |
925      smlnj-c            | $gf/smlnj-c/trunk
926    
927    In $gf/admin there are a few useful shell scripts for checking out
928    and maintaining the entire collection of trees:
929    
930       admin/checkout-all.sh [dir]
931          -- optionally creates dir and checks out all trees from their

954    Description:
955    
956    New working version (110.59).  NEW BOOTFILES!
957    
958    I am freezing 110.59.  Changes other than the version-number increase:
959    
960      eXene:
961    
962         * committed changes to eXene from Alley Stoughton:
963             "fixed bugs in X authorization and resource handling, as well
964              as in the pile and viewport widgets"
965    
966      Runtime:
967        * fixed linking problem with NetBSD 3.x.
968    
969      Lexgen:
970        * lexgen tool handles non-ascii characters in 7-bit mode the same
971          way that ml-lex does
972    
973        * lexgen propagates exceptions the same way that ml-lex does
974    
975      CML:
976        * Fixed a bug in the SyncVar polling functions (iGetPoll,
977          mTakePoll, and mGetPoll) that could lead to livelock.

1119    Description:
1120    
1121    Enabling $/html-lib.cm in config/preloads did not work.  This is fixed
1122    now.  (Since the anchor mapping for html-lib.cm is not yet in effect
1123    at the time when config/preloads is processed, the library has to
1124    be referred to by another name.  In 110.57 this would be
1125    $SMLNJ-LIB/HTML/html-lib.cm.  I arranged for $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1126    to be valid as well.)

1181    Tag: blume-22051115-versiontool
1182    Description:
1183    
1184    Reversed change to src/system/smlnj/internals/versiontool.cm.  This
1185    file gets loaded as a tool -- by the equivalent of CM.make during the
1186    run of CMB.make.  Thus, CMB's path configuration is meaningless for
1187    it.  Instead, it has the status of "user code", so it should use
1188    $/basis.cm to refer to the Basis library.  (At least that's true for
1189    the purpose of bootstrapping the previous change.  In the future it
1190    might make sense to have versiontool.cm refer to
1191    $smlnj/basis/basis.cm, i.e., the version of the Basis that the
1192    compiler itself uses.)
1193    
1194    Also patched src/system/testml to have it activate those extra anchor
1195    bindings in config/extrapathconfig.

1200    Tag: blume-22051115-libraries
1201    Description:
1202    
1203    This change affects the way the following libraries are tied into
1204    the system:
1205    
1206       $/basis.cm
1207       $/smlnj-lib.cm
1208       $/pp-lib.cm
1209       $/controls-lib.cm
1210       $/html-lib.cm
1211       $/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1212    
1213    These libraries are now internally (as seen from the source code
1214    of the implementation itself) known by the following names:
1215    
1216       $smlnj/basis/basis.cm
1217       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/smlnj-lib.cm
1218       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/pp-lib.cm
1219       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/controls-lib.cm
1220       $smlnj/smlnj-lib/html-lib.cm
1221       $smlnj/ml-yacc/ml-yacc-lib.cm
1222    
1223    This makes it possible to work with code that requires different
1224    versions of these libraries, and which refers to these libraries using
1225    their "default" names (i.e., the first set of names above).  In other
1226    words, one can un-define or re-define those default names without
1227    compromising the proper functioning of the compiler itself.
1228    
1229    A similar procedure had already been performed for several of the
1230    MLRISC libraries that are linked into the compiler.  I did some
1231    cleanup on this code.
1232    
1233    A new file in the config directory (named extrapathconfig) is
1234    responsible for setting up path anchors that the compiler itself does
1235    not need, but that are typically required by user code.

1414    Tag: blume-20050516-redump-heap
1415    Description:
1416    
1417    Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
1418    after configuration variables have been changed.
1419    
1420       CM.redump_heap : string -> unit
1421    
1422    This is much like SMLofNJ.exportML, but starting from the resulting
1423    heap does not return to the caller of CM.redump_heap but
1424    restarts the interactive system from scratch.  The original call of
1425    CM.redump_heap does not return but ends the interactive session.
1426    Thus, CM.redump_heap is a lot like SMLofNJ.exportFn.
1427    
1428    Internally, redump_heap winds the dynamic execution context back to
1429    the point where the original heap image was created and re-executes
1430    the heap image generation code in the boot code.

1546    Tag: blume-20050114-heap2exec
1547    Description:
1548    
1549    Implemented new (but still experimental) heap2exec facility.  This is
1550    tested under Mac OS X and should work under Linux (will test shortly).
1551    It will probably also work on the Sparc (will test some time later).
1552    
1553      - removed old "HACKED_STANDALONE" hack from runtime
1554    
1555    To be able to test this, uncomment the request for "heap2asm" in
1556    config/targets prior to installation.  (Notice that this is different
1557    from "heap2exec" mentioned below.  Not a typo.)
1558    
1559    To perform an actual test, run the command
1560    
1561       $ bin/heap2exec heapfile execfile
1562    
1563    (You can put heap2exec on your shell's path.)
1564    
1565    For example, run
1566    
1567      $ bin/heap2exec bin/.heap/ml-yacc.ppc-darwin mly
1568    
1569    This will create a standalone executable called "mly" which you can
1570    then invoke directly as a command.

1715    Tag: blume-20041124-position
1716    Description:
1717    
1718    The compiler can now be compiled in a mode that makes structure Position
1719    equal to Int64.  The default, however, is unchanged (Position = Int31)
1720    for the time being.
1721    
1722    To enable 64-bit positions, use the following procedure:
1723    
1724    1. Start sml
1725    2. Autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm (if not already autoloaded)
1726    3. Type
1727          #set (CMB.symval "USE_64_BIT_POSITIONS") (SOME 1);
1728    4. Run CMB.make() as usual.
1729    
1730    This is barely tested.  The only test so far was a little SML program
1731    counting the number of characters in an 8-gigabyte file by
1732    reading it character-by-character.  That test was successful.
1733    
1734    In support of 64-bit positions, a number of new functions have been
1735    added to the runtime system.

1780    
1781    - In a previous commit, fixed a minor issue with how polyequal is being
1782      translated.  In particular, the code now "looks through" abstractions.
1783      This results in slightly fewer polyEqual warnings and hopefully slightly
1784      more efficient code.  Important examples for where this matters are
1785      the new int64 and word64 types.

1814    Description:
1815    
1816    Structure Word64 is now (almost) complete, word literals and patterns
1817    seem to work.  There are a few odd pieces missing.  In particular,
1818    I didn't do the {from,to}LargeWord parts because LargeWord is still Word32
1819    at the moment.
1820    
1821    Making Word64 official would mean that LargeWord becomes Word64.  But
1822    this requires extreme care because most word-word conversions have to
1823    go through LargeWord, so making a mistake means loss of efficiency or
1824    worse.  Eventually there will be a solution similar to (but actually
1825    simpler than) what I did with IntInf.

1833    More 64-bit hacking (but still not even half-way there yet).
1834    Also, some assorted improvements to the handling of 8-bit words.

1842    Started adding some infrastructure for supporting 64-bit int- and
1843    word-types.  (Still in its very early stages.)

1851    New working version (110.50).  NEW BOOTFILES!

1853                 =====================
1854    
1855    Also:
1856    
1857      - Changend config/srcarchiveurl from a file just
1858        containing the URL string into a file containing
1859        shell script code.  The code has access to the $VERSION variable.
1860      - Made corresponding changes to config/install.sh and config/unpack.
1861      - Default contents of config/srcarchiveurl uses $VERSION and
1862        normally does not have to be edited to reflect a version change.
1863    
1864      (As a result, a version change can be done by just editing
1865       config/version, the rest is now automatic.)
