  291: Number of scalar operations per second and per core : 3809121.83444626
  292: schroedinger:[~/cvs/bench] > 
  293: - recherche_type() did not convert huge integer in real. Now,
  294: 18446744072742037448 is converted into real as value cannot be stored in

  376: - major bug is fixed in STD format (1E7 sq prints 1);
  377: - major bug is fixed in READ intrinsic (socket). This bug was introduced
  378: by a new feature in glibc.
  379: * Thu Apr 14 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.22 (RPL/2)
  380: - by default, RPL/2 uses "NONE" IMPLICIT when it's started in batch mode and
  381: "ALL" IMPLICIT when it runs in interactive mode;
  382: - when "NONE" IMPLICIT is set, STO intrinsic raises an error when it is used
  383: to create or modify a global variable. Now, with "NONE" IMPLICIT, you have
  384: to use SAVE to manipulate global variables;
  385: - replace erroneous TAB by TBL in evaluation() and formateur_fichier()
  386: subroutines;
  387: - fix major memory access violation in evaluation subroutine. Only occurs
  388: when 'X(i,j)' is evaluated on a matrix and when (i,j) points out of bounds;
  389: - fix major bug in evaluation subroutine. 'X(i)' returns execution error
  390: when X was a vector or a table.

  420: * Thu Sep 23 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.19 (RPL/2)
  421: - due to a very strange bug I've only seen on Solaris, ptmalloc3 is removed.
  422: Solaris libresolv randomly uses ptmalloc3 and system allocator and makes heap
  423: corruption. As internal memory management have been improved, a best fit
  424: allocator like ptmalloc3 is not required anymore;
  425: - gnuplot is upgraded to 4.4.1;
  426: - deadlock is fixed in signal handlers: same mutex was used in standard
  427: subroutines (without protected sections by sigprocmask() or pthread_sigmask())
  428: and signal handlers. A new signal handler specific mutex is added;
  429: - minor bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. In { X 0 PI }, PI is a function
  430: that has to be evaluated by ->NUM;
  431: - rplfile build process is modify to be sure that rplfile is not modified
  432: after rpl build stage (to be sure that rplfile checksum is not modified after

  437: ABORT now works on eComStation;
  438: - sqlite is upgraded to 3.7.2;
  439: - bug is fixed in software interrupts. When both process have different PID,
  440: parent process was not interrupted if it is not group master process. To fix
  441: this bug, SIGINJECT signal is not sent by child process but by control thread
  442: in parent process;
  443: - minor bug is fixed in data injection (POKE) that does not work as expected
  444: when child process is protected by NRPROC.
  445: * Thu Aug 26 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.18 (RPL/2)
  446: - --enable-sysv-sems is added to configure script to use SystemV semaphores
  447: functions instead of POSIX functions. This function is disabled or forced on
  448: systems that does not provide correct POSIX or SysV semaphores subsystem;
  449: - a dirty but not quick patch is written to workaround broken siginfo
  450: structures. This patch has been successfully tested. It uses a segment of
  451: shared memory (Posix or SysV) and some semaphores (Posix or SysV) by process
  452: (Unix PID);
  453: - some OpenBSD's hacks are added;

  472: Level 0 and 1 variables adresses were swapped when a global variable masked
  473: a name of RPL/2 routine;
  474: - major bug is fixed in global variable creation subroutine. When a global
  475: variable was created and when a local variable existed with the same name,
  476: computed address of global variable was wrong;
  477: - src/Makefile.am is modified to avoid a bug on several systems. libptmalloc3
  478: is forced in front of all libraries.
  479: * Tue Jul 13 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.17 (RPL/2)
  480: - BACKTRACE intrinsic is added;

  482: when this structure is included in IFERR/THEN/END structure and when an error is
  483: caught;
  484: - major bug is fixed in analyse() subroutine. When evaluation() returned error
  485: in a compiled program, analyse() caught this error twice and randomly aborted
  486: with a segmentation error;
  487: - TRIM and TOKENIZE replace both '\n' and '\t' by regular spaces;
  488: - ATEXIT subroutine begins with an implicit CSTOP to avoid multiple stop
  489: signals;
  490: - memory leak is fixed in ROW+. It only occurs when a row is added to an empty
  491: matrix.

  505: * Sun May 23 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.15 (RPL/2)
  506: - all '-' are replaced by '_' in random generator list;
  507: - minor memory leak is fixed in OPEN intrinsic (socket);
  508: - major bug is fixed in IFERR structure. Only occurs in compiled program;
  509: - major bug is fixed in copie_objet() and liberation(). Only concerns
  510: format in FCH (file descriptor) and SCK (socket descriptor);
  511: - debug routines are improved;
  512: - PROCID is added;
  513: - MEMLOCK and MEMUNLOCK are added. MEMLOCK forces a process to remain in memory
  514: and to not use swap;
  515: - major bug is fixed in sql support. SQL connections were closed in all chield
  516: process;
  517: - standard allocator (malloc()/free()) is replaced by ptmalloc3 due to some bugs
  518: discovered in Solaris thread safe allocators (libmalloc and libumem) that
  519: are first fit class allocators. Solaris libmtmalloc works better and is
  520: a best fit class allocator but its performance is poor than ptmalloc3
  521: performance;
  522: - major bug is fixed in ROW+ intrinsic (new row was not added where it
  523: should);
  524: - minor bugs are fixed in interruptions.c (semaphores values when error is
  525: caught);
  526: - major bug is fixed in STOP intrinsic. STOP was unable to stop any process
  527: created by SPAWN;
  528: - SIGFABORT is added. When process receives SIGFSTOP, it tries to execute
  529: ATEXIT. If it receives SIGFABORT, it does not;
  530: - ONEXIT is renamed in ATEXIT;
  531: - ONEXIT new intrinsic is added.
  532: * Wed Apr 21 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.14 (RPL/2)

  534: This bug only occurs when RPL/2 tries to create a shared or static variable
  535: from an expression;
  536: - major bug is fixed in copie_etat_processus(). A field that contains
  537: information about shared variable was not copied to new processus structure;
  538: - some little memory leaks are fixed in evaluation(), recherche_type() and
  539: sequenceur(). They only occured when syntax error were caught;
  540: - IMPLICIT causes execution error instead system error;
  541: - Hurd support is improved but currently broken because Hurd does not support
  542: SIG_INFO. Work in progress;
  543: - OpenBSD specific support is removed from sources;
  544: - support for Mac OS X and Windows/Cygwin is added.

  584: * Tue Mar 09 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.12 (RPL/2)
  585: - in formatted file, string format returned a variable length string even if
  586: format was 'CHARACTER*(n)' (n characters string). Now, 'CHARACTER*(*)' returns
  587: a variable length string and 'CHARACTER*(n)' a fixed length string;
  588: - keyed access files support is added. Currently, only formatted files are

  597: each execution (md5 and sha1 sums) to enhance security. If one of these tools
  598: have been modified between RPL/2 compilation and current execution, RPL/2 aborts
  599: on a non recoverable system error;
  600: - openssl and sqlite3 libraries are added;

  638: - minor bug is fixed in DAEMON intrinsic. When a program was daemonized, all
  639: signals sent to main process were not caught because DAEMON did not replace
  640: old pid by new one;
  641: - major bug is fixed in IFERR/THEN/ELSE/END. Only occurs in expression

  666: * Mon Nov 30 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.7 (RPL/2)
  667: - DISP now locks stdout;
  668: - rpliconv is added to replace standard iconv provided by operating system.
  669: Indeed, conversion between different encodages requires transliteration
  670: that is not offered by some iconv utility;
  671: - CURRENC and RECODE intrinsics have been written to allow strings conversions;
  672: - bug is fixed in SYSEVAL. When execvp() returns (for example when arg[0] can
  673: not be found), SYSEVAL enters in a dead lock;
  674: - fprintf is replaced by some functions that allow transliterations between
  675: locales;
  676: - '"' can now be used in strings ("\"");
  677: - iconv is called with -c in preprocessor stage. It is done to write
  678: CGI scripts with RPL/2 because locale charset is set to ANSI_X3.4-1968;
  679: - double free is fixed in liberation() (type SQL, only occurs when locale is
  680: set);
  681: - LOCALIZATION, UCASE and LCASE are added;
  682: - major bug is fixed in EXIT intrinsic that was able to return a false
  683: execution error in compiled scripts (only in DO/UNTIL and REPEAT/WHILE loops);
  684: - major bug is fixed in wrapper_instruction_intrinseque(). When intrinsic() was
  685: used in onLoading from shared library, USE was pushed on stack as algebraic
  686: expression;
  687: - libiconv is upgraded to 1.13.1;

  691: - pipe() is overwritten by a macro to avoid a system error. Communication
  692: between process are done with pipes and these pipes are managed by a
  693: specific asynchrone thread. If a script try to create more threads than
  694: management thread can destroy, you can quickly achieve maximum number of
  695: opened files and pipe() shall return a system error. This macro tries to create
  696: pipes. If pipe() function returns an error, macro waits and retries. If
  697: number of retries is greater than a hardcoded value, macro returns an error;
  698: - major bug (deadlock) is fixed in process and thread management. I hope
  699: this bug shall be the last one;
  700: - major bug is fixed in DET intrinsic (determinant was computed without LU
  701: diagonalization);

  707: or thread number;
  708: - new major bug is fixed in interruptions.c. Sometimes, when retrait_thread()
  709: was called before a pending interruption5 (SIGFSTOP), signal handler uses
  710: a freed semaphore and corrupts heap;
  711: - CLRERR is added to erase previous errors;
  712: - ERRN and ERRM return exception message and number;
  713: - major bug is fixed in interruptions.c. All signal are now bufferised
  714: when semaphore_liste_threads is null to avoid deadlock. This bug only
  715: occured when STOP was sent to a dying thread or process (when this thread or
  716: process was running retrait_thread());

  767: - minor bug is fixed in WRITE (SIGPIPE is ignored to catch error without
  768: process termination);
  769: - major bug is fixed in FUSE intrinsic (FUSE kills itself and do not kill
  770: its parent);
  771: - a mutex to protect fork() syscall is added;
  772: - all mutexes are unlocked after fork() in DETACH;

  794: SIGFSTP (with a nullified siginfo structure) instead of SIGHUP when control
  795: process is killed;
  796: - abs() macro is modified to avoid multiple evaluation. Your C compiler has to
  797: know typeof() intrinsic function. This function is not standard but exists
  798: under Sun Studio, gcc, and maybe some others compilers. If this function does
  799: not exist on your compiler, you can change its definition by old one in
  800: src/rpl.h;

  841: static variable that is shared by multiple threads;
  842: - '->' intrinsic is improved. All object copies have been avoided;
  843: - -n flag is added to catch HUP signal. stderr and stdout are redirected
  844: to a file, stdin is redirected to /dev/null when control process is killed;
  845: - a mutex is added to each object (before this modification,
  846: RPL/2 used a global mutex and performances in multithreaded programs were very
  847: poor.);

  862: that all programs that worked with old SQL intrinsic can now work with
  863: SQLQUERY. With all new programs, you can open a real connection to databases;
  864: - NRPROC is added. This new intrinsic is used to catch error from child
  865: process. Without NRPROC, any errors returned by child process cause
  866: main process to abort;
  867: - SPAWN is added. This new intrinsic is used to launch a new thread (DETACH
  868: starts a new process). There are no mutexes in RPL/2 because all spawned process
  869: use specific context. Nevertheless, shared variables and associated mutexes
  870: should be added;
  871: - -D flag and DAEMONIZE intrinsic have been added;
  872: - REPEAT, THEN, ELSE and ELSEIF intrinsics are rewritten to be more efficient;

 1164: - HELP function is rewritten to be more friendly (a la OpenVMS);
 1165: - external wrapper (rplplot) is written to force usage of gnuplot provided
 1166: by RPL/2 if it is built during build process. If this build does not exist,
 1167: it tries to launch regular gnuplot;
 1168: - gnuplot is added to source tree to avoid some trouble between preinstalled
 1169: gnuplot and release used by RPL/2. This addition to source tree is

 1548: fine...);
 1549: - NOT is not correctly formatted in formateur.c:
 1550: Z NOT -> 'NOT Z' but 'A+Z' NOT -> 'NOT A+Z' and 'NOT Z+A' -> 'NOTZ+A'
 1551: with a NOTZ function !
 1552: * Sun Aug 10 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre7c (RPL/2)
 1553: - CYCLE is fixed. Now, it is possible to use CYCLE in an expression even

 1555: - RPL/2 is tested with efence and valgrind;
 1556: - configure.in script is modified;
 1557: - units.c is modified to be built by gcc-3.3. I only have removed a #if 0/#endif

 1619: - LAST is disabled in evaluation subroutine (EVAL and ->NUM intrinsics).
 1620: * Sun May 18 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6j (RPL/2)

 1637: - SCLS is added;
 1638: - DRWS now uses COLS to draw 2D graphics;
 1639: - PPAR and SPAR are written. SPAR returns a list that contains the
 1640: size of the statistical matrix (or "UNAVALAIBLE" if there is any
 1641: statistical variable, or "DISABLED" if its type is not one of the type of
 1642: a statistical matrix.) and XCOL and YCOL parameters. Warning: [[]] SIZE
 1643: returns { 1 0 } and it is not a bug, because a null matrix contains _one_
 1644: null line ! Thus, [[]] STOS SPAR returns { { 1 0 } 1 2 };
 1645: - EXTERNAL intrinsic is added. Warning: by default, extern functions are
 1646: disabled. Arguments of EXTERNAL are case sensitive because the external
 1647: interface is written in C. { ext_sinus } EXTERNAL does not replace the list
 1648: of known external functions but add the new list to the last. { "all" }
 1649: EXTERNAL allows all external functions and { "none" } EXTERNAL removes all
 1650: external names of the known functions;
 1651: - mkrplso.in is modified.
 1652: * Sun Apr 20 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6h (RPL/2)
 1653: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1654: - a minor mistake is fixed in recherche_instruction_suivante();

 1664: * Sun Apr 13 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6g (RPL/2)
 1665: - a very minor bug is fixed in VISIT intrinsic. It only occurs when
 1666: VISIT does not find a name in level 1;
 1667: - configure.in script is modified to add a new test (--enable-debug
 1668: flag). Configured with this fleg, RPL/2 will be built with electric-fences;
 1669: - GETR (get row[s]) and GETC (get column[s]) are added. These new instructions
 1670: extract a part of a matrix. Syntax: [[ 1 2 3 ][ 2 3 4 ]] { 1 } GETR or
 1671: 'MATRIX' { 2 2 3 } GETR;
 1672: - LOGSCALE intrinsic is improved and now, it can be used as
 1673: { "main" "auxiliary" X Y } LOGSCALE;
 1674: - SCALE intrinsic is used to fix the limits of a graphic. Its syntax is the
 1675: same than AXES:
 1676: { { 60 "ticsonly" 2 } { "automatic" "ticsonly" 10 } } axes
 1677: { "auxiliary" { 60 "ticsonly" "default" } { "automatic" } } axes
 1678: { { -10 10 } "automatic" } SCALE.
 1679: Warning, it is not possible to ask a logarithmic scale with this intrinsic
 1680: because it changes only the dimension of the screen. To have a logarithmic
 1681: scale, you must use LOGSCALE intrinsic:
 1682: { X } LOGSCALE gives a semi-log screen, { "auxiliary" X Y } gives a log-log
 1683: screen on second scale;
 1684: - { X X } autoscale and { Y Y } logscale are now invalid;
 1685: - *D is added (depth multiplication, for 3D graphics);
 1686: - a new intrinsic (*S) is added. It changes the scale of a graphic (X, Y
 1687: and Z axes). The result of *S is the same than DUP DUP *H *W *D;
 1688: - a major bug is fixed in GETI instrinsic when it is used with a name
 1689: that contains a matrix or a vector (bad upper bounds conditions in
 1690: incrementation);
 1691: - DISP intrinsic now uses the 33-th flag. When it is not set
 1692: (default), a final carriage return is sent to the terminal;
 1693: - AXES intrinsic only takes a list that can contains the keywork
 1694: "main" or "auxiliary". Before this modification, this keyword was in
 1695: the first stack level;
 1696: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1697: - in appel_gnuplot(), stdin is closed when gnuplot is called with -raise
 1698: option;
 1699: - LAST is now disabled in the main loop of INT intrinsic;
 1700: - expm1 and lnp1 are rewritten to use expm1 and log1p from math.h.
 1701: * Sun Apr 6 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6f (RPL/2)
 1702: - a major bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. It occurs with DRAW
 1703: intrinsic when the equation cannot be evaluated (for example 'SIN(X)/X'
 1704: in 0);
 1705: - LAST is disabled in the main loop of DRAW intrinsic;
 1706: - a major bug is fixed in DRAW intrinsic. When an error occurs in the
 1707: evaluation of an equation, the system stack is returned corrupted to the
 1708: sequencer;
 1709: - the same minor bug is fixed in FOR and START. It only occurs when the limits
 1710: of a loop are not integer or real.
 1711: * Sun Mar 31 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6e (RPL/2)
 1712: - the compilation stage aborts with an error message when two definitions
 1713: have the same name. To improve the compilation() subroutine, I have to
 1714: add some tests in gestion_variables.c;
 1715: - recherche_type() subroutine ad some other connex subroutines are improved.
 1716: Now, some syntax errors about object are caught and do not perform sequencer
 1717: hangup;
 1718: - readline is upgraded (minor compilation bug with recent gcc);
 1719: - Makefile.am's and configure.in scripts are improved.
 1720: * Fri Mar 14 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6d (RPL/2)
 1721: - DRWS intrinsic is written. Two datastyles are associated: SCATTER (2D
 1722: and 3D) and HISTOGRAM (only 2D, but 3 columns are accepted, the third shown
 1723: the boxwidth, 1 by default);
 1724: - recherche_type() is rewritten to be faster;
 1725: - gsl is upgraded (release 1.3);
 1726: - ncurses is upgraded and patched (release 5.3);
 1727: - recherche_instruction_suivante() is fixed (string research with included
 1728: '"') and rewritten to be faster;

 1739: - a minor bug is fixed in evaluation subroutine;
 1740: - vim syntax file is improved;
 1741: - DRAW (wireframe section) is fixed. When an error occurs in the evaluation
 1742: of a 3D-graphic (for example 'SIN(R)/R' with 'R=SQRT(X**2+Y**2)' in X=0 and
 1743: Y=0), no graph was procuced (it results from a bug in gnuplot, and this fix
 1744: is a quick and dirty workaround...);
 1745: - RETURN intrinsic is modified to fix a trouble in interactive mode;
 1746: - rplconvert is improved.

 1805: 'X' 0 - returns 'X';
 1806: 'X' 1 * and 1 'X' * return 'X';

 1812: found by configure are used in rpltypes.h (rplconfig.h is written by configure);
 1813: - rdynamic flag is added in src/Makefile.am. This flag is used in the first
 1814: makefile, but forgotten in the new process;
 1815: - Flag 31 is tested before saving any arguments in bibliotheques_externes.c;
 1816: - POS can now be used on lists;

 1828: deleted too!;
 1829: - configure script is improved (and it seems to be good ;-) );
 1830: - An --disable-experimental flag is added to the configure script. Thus, even

 1845: that the RPL/2 seqencer must stop and must give a prompt. This
 1846: signal is an asynchonous "HALT" command;
 1847: - SIGINT (CTRL+C) variables stack corruption is fixed;
 1848: - IFERR seems to be fixed (in equation evaluation routine);
 1849: - Memory leak is fixed (ADR object type);

 1856: i586, i686, K6, K7, alpha ev4, alpha ev5, alpha ev56, alpha ev6, sparc v7,
 1857: sparc v8 and sparc v9. Compilation of RPL/2 on my Sun Sparc 2 (sun4c,
 1858: CPU 4/75, 64 MB, 40 MHz with FPU) is a very great mission :
 1859: 
 1860: Newton:[~/rpl/rpl] > time make install
 1861: ...
 1862: real    338m39.623s
 1863: user    324m32.290s
