#2003 Configure.pl from tools/dev/create_language.pl doesn't play nice with git tools bug 02/09/11

The Configure.pl script generated by tools/dev/create_language.pl clones Parrot from GitHub, but it's not quite right. It still thinks build/PARROT_REVISION contains a numeric revision number, not a tag or checksum, which makes it emit this error:

Argument "RELEASE_3_0_0" isn't numeric in addition (+) at Configure.pl line 25, <$REQ> line 1.

The corresponding build/gen_parrot.pl has a similar problem:

Argument "RELEASE_3_0_0" isn't numeric in addition (+) at build/gen_parrot.pl line 31, <$REQ> line 1.

Perhaps the simplest way to fix this would be to adapt the solution used in Rakudo's Configure.pl.

#1726 Missing POD in .pmc files (and a couple of others) coding_standards todo 08/01/10

We recently completed an exercise whereby the coding standard test t/codingstd/c_function_docs.t and the associated documentation was fixed so that no TODO's remain for missing POD in c functions in parrot.

I had occasion to run make headerizer and found that it reported missing POD in some other files, mostly .pmc files and one .y file (plus 3 .c files from compilers/src/pirc not tested by c_function_docs.t).

It is suggested that .pmc files be included in c_function_docs.t or possibly in a new test.

#855 config/init/defaults.pm: Profiling options are too specific to GCC configure bug 07/19/09

This ticket was created in  RT #41497 by Paul T Cochrane in February 2007. I am moving it into the Trac system to raise its visibility. I believe it could be moved toward resolution by someone -- a newcomer, perhaps -- who was willing to spend some time doing Internet searching on the profiling options of various C compilers.

Original description:
The profiling options used in config/init/defaults.pm are specific to gcc. This should probably be specified in the relevant hints file.

The relevant code in config/init/defaults.pm is this:

    if ( $conf->options->get('profile') ) {
        $conf->data->set(
            cc_debug => " -pg ",
            ld_debug => " -pg ",
        );
    }

In the original ticket, Infinoid subsequently commented: This flag convinces gcc to generate profiling code specifically for the GNU profiler, gprof. I find it *extremely* unlikely that this flag would be available and/or mean the same thing for other compilers ...

In addition, Andy Dougherty commented: [These options] are gcc-specific. A plain -p is common on Unix systems, but -pg is gcc-specific. For example, with Sun's C compiler, -xpg would be the equivalent flag. (Though Sun's C compiler also has other profile options selected by -xprofile ...)

Could someone research profiling options on a variety of C compilers, including the principal C compilers for Windows?

Thank you very much.

#1996 Function Parrot_ext_try for extenders embed/extend experimental 02/04/11

I'm going to add the experimental function Parrot_ext_try, to help handling exceptions from extension code.

It takes as parameters an interpreter a function to call, a handler function and a pointer for data.

The main function is called with the interpreter and the data.

The handler function, if not null, is called if an exception is thrown during the main call, passing to it the interpreter, the exception and the data.

The data pointer is opaque, the caller and the functions used can use it for any purpose.


#707 [RFC] StringHandle interface core RFC 05/26/09

There some points in the StringHandle pmc that needs clarification:

- Read/Write mode: Must it works the same as FileHandle? Several tests use read methods in a StringHanlde opened for writing. IMO will be better to have methods to get/set the string content, use the get_string/set_string/native vtable functions, or both, and have the read methods throw exceptions when not opened for read.

- Mode when reopened without second argument: must use the flags used on the previous open, or use the 'r' default? Several tests assume the second, but works only because of the first issue.

#1724 Add getprotobyname to Socket PMCs core patch 08/01/10

I couldn't see any implementation of getprotobyname which seems like a standard function that should be available. This adds it to Socket PMCs.

I'm not entirely sure this is the correct approach - because normally you'd call this before creating a socket object. For PIR this is OK, but in something like Perl 6 this will create a Socket object to call getprotobyname, then destroy it, then probably create another one straight after.

Anyway, this is the best I could come up with given my extremely limited knowledge of Parrot - please advise!

#987 Make breakpoints actually work in parrot_debugger tools bug 09/07/09

Currently, you can add and delete breakpoints, but they don't actually stop the program flow.

A failing test for this would be a good start.


#1731 Assumption made about buffer header alignment core bug 08/05/10

Various memory management routines (e.g., gc_ms_allocate_buffer_storage) assume that the size of a buffer header is equal to the size of a pointer. This is probably true throughout the system as it stands, but those same routines take pains not to make that assumption in other places.

Here is a line from the above routine:

    Buffer_buflen(buffer)   = new_size - sizeof (void *);

If the size of a pointer is less than the buffer header size, the value stored in buflen will be too big. new_size includes the entire size of the buffer header, which may include alignment padding in addition to the pointer.

#919 On Mac OS X 10.5.8, Configure.pl : lazy symbol binding failed configure bug 08/14/09

Hi,

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.8 with the dev tools installed.

I just downloaded parrot 1.4.0, unpacked it into my ~/opt/src directory, and ran perl Configure.pl --prefix=/Users/john/opt.

Although the configure seemed to succeed, it complained thusly:

auto::readline -      Does your platform support readline...dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: _rl_get_keymap
  Referenced from: /Users/john/opt/src/parrot-1.4.0/./test_2640

dyld: Symbol not found: _rl_get_keymap
  Referenced from: /Users/john/opt/src/parrot-1.4.0/./test_2640
  Expected in: dynamic lookup

.............done.

At the end, it reported:

Okay, we're done!

You can now use `make' to build your Parrot.
After that, you can use `make test' to run the test suite.

#1886 set_string_native() not implemented in class 'TclString' none bug 12/10/10

This error has cropped up in the last few months in partcl-nqp. (No changes in partcl, just upgrading parrot was sufficient to gen the error)

In one case, there was a concat operation in our src/Partcl/commands/time.pm ; prefixing the first element with a ~ avoided the error. (but should have been unnecessary.)

There is another location where this error occurs, triggered by the following tcl:

$ cat error.tcl
for {set i 0} {$i < 2} {set i [expr $i+1]} {puts $i}
$ ./partcl error.tcl
0
1
set_string_native() not implemented in class 'TclString'
    while executing
eval
    (file "<unknown file>" line 7)
for
    (file "<unknown file>" line 12)
HLL::Compiler::eval
    (file "<unknown file>" line 151)
PCT::HLLCompiler::evalfiles
    (file "<unknown file>" <unknown line>)
PCT::HLLCompiler::command_line
    (file "<unknown file>" <unknown line>)
main
    (file "<unknown file>" line 1)

In eval (src/Partcl/commands/eval.pm) the error is occurring when invoking the sub generated by:

my &sub := Partcl::Compiler.compile($code);
&sub(); #BOOM

In any case, TclString should in fact have a set_string_native, inherited from its parent class of String; it's declared in an nqp file as:

class TclString is String

#1492 Get_class <namespace> confuses NSes that have same final name. core bug 03/03/10

Having already created a class "Matcher", I was trying in NQP to create a related class Mimus::CallSignature::Matcher. (Note the last name.) Far too many hours later, it appears that the get_class op on a namespace apparently returns invalid results when the namespace shares a last name with an already-extant class.

This code, inspired by the get_parrotclass method in P6object.pir, looks up (and tries to create, if needed) two classes with different namespace paths but the same class name (last name in the nsp), one called P and the other N::S::P :

.sub foo :main
	.local pmc class_p
	.local int addr_p

	.local pmc class_nsp
	.local int addr_nsp

	class_p = newclass [ 'P' ]
	addr_p = get_addr class_p
	

	$S0 = 'N::S::P'		# Change to ..Q and it changes
	$P0 = split '::', $S0

	$P1 = get_hll_namespace $P0
	unless null $P1 goto have_ns
	
	die "Namespace was null"
have_ns:
	
	class_nsp = get_class $P1
	$P2 = class_nsp
	addr_nsp = get_addr class_nsp

	print "Addr of class 'P' is: "
	say addr_p

	print "Addr of 'N::S::P' is: "
	say addr_nsp

	unless addr_p == addr_nsp goto end
	say "*** The addrs are the same. I think that's wrong."

	goto end

got_class:
	say "Got the class. I didn't see that coming."
end:
.end

.namespace ['N';'S';'P']

.sub bar :method
	.return (1)
.end


.namespace ['N';'S';'Q']

.sub bar :method
	.return (1)
.end

The effect of this seems to be that any code which relies on P6object cannot create classes that have the same name.

The workaround is, trivially, to make sure that class names are distinct. Anyone who has ever coded C89 should be okay.


#1868 [DEPRECATED] PIR compiler availability core 2.11 deprecation 11/23/10

PIR as a language is currently always available in parrot. This privileged status is part of why PIR is a growing pain for Parrot (usually experienced as hatred for IMCC).

PIR will become no different to parrot than any language. It will not be baked-in to libparrot and be always available. In stead, PIR will become a separately loadable component.

PIR will remain available to Parrot programs, however it will require loading before use (via the load_language instruction).

A separate executable (tentatively named "parrot-imcc") will be made available for compiling and running PIR programs as the main parrot executable does today.

Currently, the method sort is only implemented in FixedPMCArray (and inherited by ResizablePMCArray).

This method uses the C function Parrot_quicksort (in src/utils.c) which handles only PMC and not STRING.


#955 need ability to create tempfile from PIR testing todo 08/28/09

to fully convert tests from Perl to PIR, we need a PIR-level analog to:

    use Parrot::Test::Util 'create_tempfile';

... I'm not sure if we can automatically delete; that would be nice, but a manual deletion at program exit is sufficient.


#1284 Integer PMC missing math methods core todo 11/17/09

IMO, this code:

.sub main
  $P1 = box 1.0
  $N1 = $P1.'exp'()
  say $N1
  $P1 = box 1
  $N1 = $P1.'exp'()
  say $N1
.end

should print 2.71828182845905 2.71828182845905

... but it dies with:

2.71828182845905
Method 'exp' not found for invocant of class 'Integer'

Clearly, exp isn't defined on Integer, but IMO, all the math methods defined on Float should be defined on Integer. (otherwise, given an arbitrary numeric PMC, we have to jump through hoops.

(Alternatively, we can remove these methods from the Float PMC and rely on the opcodes.)

This becomes even more confusing when you take in the morphing of the core types - a PMC that was a Float can morph into an Integer which is then unable to invoke the various methods.

#1754 The Scalar PMC core deprecation 08/23/10

The Scalar PMC is quite confusing. Why do some scalars inherit from it and others don't? What exactly does it provide? For example, it appears to be the only PMC providing logical_not. Why does it mean to provide scalar and why does PDD17 say that Foo is the only PMC to do it?

Perhaps the Scalar PMC should be eliminated, or perhaps it should be refactored with the Default class. At least it should be clearly documented.


#1448 Modify `throw` opcode to pass through pre-configured resume continuation core RFC 02/16/10

Presently, the throw opcode creates and sets a resume continuation on the exception being thrown.

Since 'resume' is an attribute of the Exception, throw should check first for a preconfigured continuation, and if one exists should preserve it.

(Of course, if unset it should continue to do what it does.)


#560 When we can't find a library, we shouldn't silently continue and give weird errors later core todo 04/17/09

In particular, I'd argue that we should quit with an error, and show the path we searched.

#1282 OS.cwd returns platform specific slashes... core todo 11/17/09

... but some languages need a way to get agnostic slashes. Rather than have every HLL implement this, there should be some way to canonicalize the path, and a way to get the platform-specific path. (This will allow hlls to pick whichever method they prefer.)

I don't particularly care about the implementation, as long as I can make

C:\Tcl\bin>tclsh
% puts [pwd]
C:/Tcl/bin

work.
