  1 DGD 1.0.a0
  2 
  3 Differences with LPmud 3.1.2:
  4 
  5 Language:
  6 
  7  - No keywords "protected", "public" and "status".
  8  - Mappings, as in the mappings package that I made for LPmud, with one
  9    difference: there is no m_delete(), and the normal way to remove an
 10    index/value pair from a mapping is to set the value to 0.
 11  - Typechecking is more strict.  As in LPmud 3.1.2, functions are not
 12    typechecked if they have no declared type, but it is possible to enforce
 13    typechecking in all objects.
 14  - call_other() does not require a cast.  If the type is not clear from the
 15    context, a cast is recommended.
 16  - Types such as int**, string***** are possible.
 17  - Initializers are not supported.
 18  - Indexing out of range is not allowed on arrays and strings.  Negative
 19    indices can be used to offset from the end of the array/string (-1 last,
 20    -2 last but one, etc).
 21  - Indexed string assignments such as foo = "bar"; foo[0] = 'B'; are possible.
 22  - The zero size array and zero size mapping are not globally shared, and
 23    comparisions such as array == ({ }) will fail.
 24  - It is illegal to declare any functions, function prototypes or variables
 25    before inheriting.
 26  - Inheritance is completely different.  There are two kinds of inheritance,
 27    virtual and labeled.
 28    Virtual inheritance is the default.  If A is inherited by B and C, and D
 29    inherits B and C, then the variables of A are in D only once.  It is illegal
 30    to inherit two different functions with the same name, unless function F1 is
 31    inherited in the object that defines function F2, or if at least one of
 32    F1 and F2 is private.  It is illegal to inherit two different variables
 33    with the same name, unless at least one of them is private.  It is
 34    illegal to redeclare a non-private variable.  Private functions are
 35    private in the program that defines them, and cannot be used from inherited
 36    objects.  Private functions do not mask inherited functions, except in
 37    the program in which they are defined.  It is illegal to inherit two
 38    different instances from an object.
 39    Labeled inheritance uses the syntax inherit label "file"; Functions in
 40    labeled inherited objects can be accessed with  label::function();
 41    Variables in labeled inherited objects cannot be accessed from the
 42    current program at all.  Functions and variables need not be unique
 43    between labeled inherited objects.  It is possible to inherit the same
 44    object with labeled inheritance twice; the different instances will not
 45    share their variables.
 46  - There is an object that is automatically (virtually) inherited in all other
 47    objects, called the auto object for short.  The auto object is shared
 48    even between virtual inherits and labeled inherits.
 49  - Predefined functions are called kfuns (kernel functions); the kfuns and
 50    the non-private functions declared in the auto object together are called
 51    efuns.  Kfuns are assumed to be static functions inherited in the auto
 52    object, with the added limitation that they cannot be called with
 53    this_object()->kfun().  All static functions declared in the auto object
 54    share this limitation.
 55  - There is no class_specifier inherit "file"; This did not work in LPmud 3.1.2
 56    anyhow.
 57  - Function prototypes are always inherited together with the function.
 58  - Function calls are typechecked if the called function is typechecked.  It
 59    is illegal to call a non-varargs function with the wrong number of
 60    arguments from a typechecked function, even if the called function is
 61    not typechecked itself.
 62  - Kfuns are not treated differently from other inherited functions, so
 63    destruct(this_object(), this_object()); will not cause a compile-time
 64    error in an untypechecked function.
 65  - Inherited functions may be redeclared with a different prototype.  If
 66    an inherited function is redeclared with a prototype only, and the function
 67    itself is not declared in the same program, then all calls to the function
 68    from that program will call an undefined function, which will result in a
 69    runtime error.
 70  - If object A declares function F, and B has only a prototype for function
 71    F, calls to F from B will call function F in A if A and B are inherited
 72    in the same object.
 73  - It is illegal to inherit a function and a prototype for the same function
 74    if the prototypes do not match.
 75  - A call to an undeclared function from an untypechecked function implicitly
 76    declares a prototype for the undeclared function that matches anything.
 77  - this_object()->function(); can be used to call static functions, but not
 78    private ones.
 79  - foo->bar(gnu); is merely an alias for call_other(foo, bar, gnu);  It is
 80    therefore possible to redefine call_other() entirely.
 81  - lock(expr); will evaluate expr without regard of execution cost, and with
 82    extra space on the function call stack.  It can only be used by the auto
 83    object to ensure that execution does not halt inside a critical function.
 84  - Any kfun can be redefined, just as ordinary inherited functions can.
 85    catch() and lock() are not considered to be kfuns (they are not true
 86    functions because catch(foo, bar) does not "call catch with two arguments").
 87 
 88 Compiler:
 89 
 90  - The built-in preprocessor conforms to the ANSI standard, except for the
 91    following:
 92     - No trigraphs.
 93     - Successive string constants are not concatenated (use the + operator
 94       instead).
 95     - The suffixes U and L are not allowed on integer constants.
 96     - No floating point constants.
 97  - There is a standard include file which is included automatically.
 98  - All #pragma directives are ignored.
 99  - All integer constants may be in decimal (starting with 1-9), octal (starting
100    with 0), hexadecimal (starting with 0x) or a character constant 'x'.  The
101    only escaped characters that are translated into something else in
102    character constants and string constants are \t and \n.
103  - The compiler is two-pass.  In the first pass, the function is typechecked
104    and a parse tree is constructed.  Constant folding and removal of dead
105    code is done.  In the second pass, code for a virtual stackmachine is
106    generated.  Jumps to jumps are optimized.  Optionally, the second pass
107    may generate C code (not yet implemented).
108 
109 Interpreter:
110 
111  - The interpreter has only 32 instructions.  Kfuns are not part of the
112    interpreter proper.
113  - Objects are pure programs.  They do not have inventories, environments,
114    are not alive, do not have actions (all of this can be simulated).
115  - Pathnames without a leading slash are considered to be relative to the
116    directory of the current object (i.e. /foo for the object compiled from
117    /foo/bar.c).
118  - create() is called if a function in an object is called for the first
119    time.  It is not called if an object is loaded because it is inherited.
120    If it is desired that reset(0) is called instead, add the following to
121    the auto object:
122 
123         void reset(int arg) { }
124 
125         nomask void create()
126         {
127             reset(0);
128         }
129 
130  - reset() is never called by the driver.  Both reset on reference and reset
131    after a fixed period are easily simulated.
132  - clean_up() is never called by the driver.
133  - Text typed by a user is passed on by calling receive_message(text) in the
134    interactive object.  The kfun send_message(text) can be used in interactive
135    objects to send text back to the user.
136  - There is no "master object" as in LPmud 3.1.2, but a "driver object"
137    instead (there is nothing masterly about it in DGD).  It is used only to
138    translate pathnames for #include and inherit, and to supply the object
139    that is used for interactive connections.  It does not inherit the
140    auto object, unless this is done explicitly.
141  - There is no shadowing.
142  - The default state of an object is swapped out.  Strings and arrays are
143    only shared inside objects.  If an array is exported from one object to
144    another, it will become a different array as soon as the object is swapped
145    out (this is guaranteed never to happen during execution).
146  - Self-referential datastructures will be deallocated when no more outside
147    references exist, because they do not belong in any object.
148 
149 Kfuns: DGD has about half of the kfuns of LPmud 3.1.2:
150  - No kfuns such as environment(), this_player(), add_action().  Simulate them
151    if you want them.
152  - There is no exec(), heart_beat(), wizlist() (simulate them).
153  - No parse_command().  It cannot be simulated, so people might want to port
154    it to DGD, but it will never become part of "pure" DGD.
155  - No alist kfuns.  I prefer mappings, even if alists are more powerful.
156  - All file kfuns are unprotected.  To get either native or compat mode
157    security, make the proper redefinitions in the auto object.
158  - The built-in editor uses a temporary file and is very close to ex.
159  - call_other() is typechecked if the called function is typechecked.  Calling
160    a function that does not exist results in an error if the call has
161    arguments (I still have to think about this).
162  - There are no optional flag arguments to any kfun.
163 
164 DGD 1.0.a1
165 
166  - ALLOCA() and AFREE() have replaced some instances of ALLOC() and FREE(),
167    and be used to allocate memory with alloca(), if available on the host.
168  - Mappings are now partially hashed.  If a mapping grows by assigning to
169    an index/value that doesn't exist yet, the index/value pair is stored in
170    a hash table.  Mappings are converted to sorted arrays of index/value
171    pairs when swapped out.
172  - Fixed some bugs in the compiler, interpreter and kfuns.
173  - Changed the way line numbers are stored.  The interpreter no longer
174    maintains the current line number at runtime.
175  - Added int-only versions of some kfuns to speed up integer arithmetic in
176    typechecked programs. Typechecked functions are now typechecked at runtime
177    as well, to ensure that integer arguments are really integers.
178 
179 DGD 1.0.a2
180 
181  - Better dead code removal.
182  - Mixed return values are cast to int if needed.
183  - Lvalues as function arguments are now handled properly.
184  - Fixed a problem with (exp1, exp2) in aggregates and function arguments.
185  - More untypechecked expressions are optimized.
186  - String constants are marked as such.
187  - Driver object has been enabled.
188  - It is now illegal to call any function with too many arguments, even if the
189    function has class vararg.
190  - I removed the error on call_other() to a non-existing function.
191  - When an object is cloned, or a function is called in it for the first time,
192    create() in the object will be called.  
193  - Added config file which is read on startup.
194  - All ANSI escape sequences are now recognized in string constants and
195    character constants.  Fixed a bug with #arg in macros.
196  - Created proper main loop that reads input and calls receive_message() for
197    the associated objects.
198  - Created (single user) comm package.  DGD now works as a regular game driver.
199  - Overview of functions called by the gamedriver (can be static):
200    In the driver object:
201     * void initialize()
202         Initialize the mudlib.  Called once at program startup.
203     * string path_ed_read(object, string)
204         Path translation for editor read.
205     * string path_ed_write(object, string)
206         Path translation for editor write.
207     * string path_object(object, string)
208         Object path translation (for find_object, clone_object, etc).
209     * string path_inherit(string, string)
210         Inherit file name translation.
211     * string path_include(string, string)
212         Include file name translation.
213     * object compile_object(string)
214         Called if the given argument could not be compiled.  The driver
215         object can return an object that will be renamed to the wanted
216         object.  The returned object may be a clone, and will remain
217         a clone (i.e. may not itself be cloned), even with the new name.
218         Modelled after "virtual objects" in MudOS, the American LPmud brand.
219     * object connect()
220     * void log_error(string, string, string, int)
221         Log a runtime error.
222     * string compile_log(string)
223         Return the name of the file to which compile time errormessages
224         should be appended.
225    In the user object:
226     * void open()
227         LPmud: login
228     * void close()
229         Called if the user connection to the mud is closed.
230     * void receive_message(string)
231         Called for user input.
232    In an object that uses the editor() kfun:
233     * void receive_message(string)
234         Called for editor output.
235  - Overview of the kfuns added:
236     * varargs mixed call_other(mixed, string, ...);
237     * object this_object();
238     * varargs object previous_object(int);
239         Return the previous object n+1 steps back in the call_other chain.
240     * object clone_object(string);
241     * void destruct_object(object);
242         LPmud: destruct()
243     * string object_name(object);
244         LPmud: file_name()
245     * object find_object(string);
246     * string function_object(string, object);
247         LPmud: function_exists()
248     * object this_user();
249         LPmud: this_player(1);
250     * string query_ip_number(object);
251     * object *users();
252     * int strlen(string);
253     * mixed *allocate(int);
254     * int sizeof(mixed *);
255     * mixed *map_indices(mapping);
256         LPmud + mappings: m_indices()
257     * mixed *map_values(mapping);
258         LPmud + mappings: m_values()
259     * int map_sizeof(mapping);
260         LPmud + mappings: m_sizeof()
261     * int intp(mixed);
262     * int stringp(mixed);
263     * int objectp(mixed);
264     * int arrayp(mixed);
265         LPmud: pointerp()
266     * int mappingp(mixed);
267     * void error(string);
268         Cause an error.
269     * void send_message(string);
270         Send a message to the current object (should be interactive user),
271         messages from the user will call receive_message() in the object.
272     * int time();
273     * varargs void call_out(string, int, ...);
274     * int remove_call_out(string);
275     * void shutdown();
276 
277     * void editor(string);
278         Handle an editor command, such as "e file", "%s/foo/bar/g", "x".
279         If no editor instance exists for the current object, it will be
280         created; editor output will call receive_message() in the object.
281     * string query_editor(object);
282         Return the editor status of the object ("command", "input" or 0).
283     * void save_object(string);
284         LPmud: save_object() without .o tagged on.
285     * int restore_object(string);
286         LPmud: restore_object() without .o tagged on.
287     * varargs string read_file(string, int, int);
288         LPmud: read_bytes()
289     * int rename_file(string, string);
290         LPmud: rename() (limited, will not rename directories if the
291                host doesn't support this)
292     * int remove_file(string);
293         LPmud: rm()
294     * varargs void write_file(string, string, int);
295         LPmud: write_bytes(), will append if third argument is omitted.
296     * int make_dir(string);
297         LPmud: mkdir()
298     * int remove_dir(string);
299         LPmud: rmdir()
300     * mixed **get_dir(string);
301         Get file info using get_dir(file), directory info using
302         get_dir(dir + "/" + pattern), the pattern can have ? * [a-z].
303         The return value has this form:
304             ({ ({ names }), ({ mod times }), ({ sizes }) })
305         This is almost compatible with MudOS, except that directories have
306         size -2 (non-existing files and special files are not included).
307 
308     * varargs string crypt(string, string);
309     * string ctime(int);
310     * string *explode(string, string);
311     * string implode(string*, string);
312     * int random(int);
313     * varargs int sscanf(string, string, ...);
314         As in LPmud, but also handles %*s (skip assignment), %s%d and %%.
315 
316 DGD 1.0.a3
317 
318  - Replaced objkey with separate fields in both objects and values.  Structure
319    alignment on sun4 systems caused the size of a value to be 12 bytes, where
320    it should have been 8.  It should now be 8 bytes on any host (as long as
321    uindex is an unsigned short, and pointers use 4 bytes).
322  - Redeclaring an inherited function with different parameters is now allowed
323    (runtime typechecking will handle calls from inherited objects to the new
324    function), but the return type still has to match.
325  - Fixed a bug with the return type of an implicit prototype, which should
326    read as mixed, when used.
327  - Some checks to see if the result of path_file() was NULL were missing.
328  - Removed time_interval from the configuration parameters.  If I'm going to
329    support call_out intervals of less then a second, I'll do it in a different
330    way.
331  - The simulated rename() erroneously removed the destination if it existed.
332  - Some checks for destructed this_object() in kfuns removed.  Either the
333    error is caused from path_object(), or there was not real reason to block
334    the kfun (file I/O).  Doing a call_other() from a destructed object is still
335    illegal.
336  - Special files are no longer excluded from a get_dir() listing.
337  - Fixed some bugs in the compiler, where functions from different inherited
338    objects were confused.
339  - The type of the objcnt field in the value struct has been changed into
340    Int, to save space on hosts that have 64-bit longs.
341  - Replaced all variables called "index" by "idx".  index() is a function like
342    strchr() on some systems.  Sigh.
343  - Fixed a bad bug in integer comparisions.
344  - The call_outs configuration parameter now specifies the maximum number of
345    call_outs in all objects together, rather than per object.
346  - The maximum execution cost is now set to the appropriate value at runtime
347    (25% for call_outs), rather than once at initialisation.
348  - call_out() and remove_call_out() now work.  The gamedriver is fully
349    functional for a single user.
350  - DGD now automatically generates a file called "limits.h" in the first
351    include directory, which describes the sizes of datatypes and resources.
352  - Fixed a problem with dumping function call traces of destructed objects.
353  - Fixed several bugs in get_dir() and path_resolve().
354  - Fixed a bug which occurred if a variable was defined with a name that had
355    been used in an inherited object.
356  - Destructing a destructed object gives an error, rather than a fatal error.
357  - call_other() from a destructed object no longer results in an error, but
358    is simply ignored, like in LPmud.
359 
360 DGD 1.0.a4
361 
362  - TCP/IP support added.
363  - Reduced the amount of runtime stack checking, by computing in advance (an
364    estimate of) the maximum stack depth of a function, which is checked when
365    the function is called.  This takes two bytes extra per function.
366  - Indexed string assignments will not make a copy of the string, if the string
367    is not a constant and has reference count 1.
368  - Fixed several bugs in the interpreted code generator.
369  - Added LPC->C code generator.
370  - Cleaned up Makefiles and including files a little bit (still far from
371    perfect).
372 
373 DGD 1.0.a5
374 
375  - Removed some redundant code from restore_string().
376  - this_user() was not always 0 in call_outs.
377  - call_other() to a function with the wrong number of arguments does not cause
378    an error, even if the function is typechecked.  This was already so for
379    version 1.0.a3, but slipped from the log.
380  - Fixed some typecasting errors in str_range() and arr_range().
381  - Instances of an object on the stack were not properly wiped out when the
382    object was destructed.
383  - Fixed a bug in the C code generator, which didn't remove errorcontexts
384    properly.
385  - catch() within lock() no longer turns off the lock.  If used by the driver
386    object, code within catch() will run with the execution cost reset.
387    initialize() in the driver object will no longer be called with a lock.
388  - Fixed a bug in remove_call_out, which could instead remove a similar
389    call_out in an object that was already destructed.
390  - It is now possible to redefine an inherited typechecked function as
391    untypechecked.
392  - Fixed a bad bug which caused the wrong inherited object to be used as the
393    program in a function call.
394  - map_sort() will now remove index/value pairs with the value set to 0.
395  - Check exec cost if a creator function is about to be called.  This prevents
396    half-initialized objects due to exec cost problems.
397  - Fixed a bug in the < <= > >= operators on strings.
398  - Max exec cost in call_outs is now 1/2 instead of 1/4.
399  - Fixed a bad memory leak in array.c .
400  - Exchanged the place in the array returned by get_dir() of the file sizes
401    and the file mod times; it is now ({ names, sizes, times }).  It used to be
402    different for compatibility with MudOS, but their doc turned out to be
403    faulty. :)
404  - Changed comm.c to handle INTR and DEL in telnet.
405  - Fixed a bug in restore_object(), which would get stuck in an infinite loop
406    when restoring an object without saveable variables.
407  - Swapping enabled.
408  - Fixed a bug that caused a bad program index in a function call to be
409    generated.
410  - Fixed a problem having to do with a full input buffer in comm.c .
411  - Fixed a bug in save_object and restore_object, where the offset of variables
412    in inherited objects was not properly calculated.
413  - Fixed a memory leak in the generation of prototypes by calling undefined
414    functions (only in untypechecked objects).
415  - String hash table sizes are now powers of two.  They used to be primes,
416    which is fairly pointless in this implementation.
417  - Divided allocated memory into 'static' and 'dynamic' memory.  Static memory
418    is used for things which need to be kept when everything is swapped out,
419    and dynamic memory is used for the rest.
420  - Fixed a bug with escape sequences in the preprocessor, and a related bug in
421    the parser.
422  - this_user() is now set during the call to open() in the user object.
423  - Fixed bugs in the C code generated for catch() and ?:.
424  - Inheritance with a label no longer specifies that a different type of
425    inheritance is required (!).  Functions may now be inherited more than once,
426    as long as the inheriting object redefines them.  A label can still be used
427    to specify which inherited instance of a function is to be called.
428  - Negative indexing has been removed.  Sorry, but I added them without
429    considering the arr[0 .. x-1], with x = 0 problem.  (If only indices
430    started at 1 instead of 0...)
431  - Fixed a memory leak in mappings with destructed objects for indices/values.
432  - Fixed a bug with destructed objects as arguments to call_outs.
433  - Fixed a cleanup problem in case an object could not be compiled.
434  - New kfuns:
435     * get_exec_cost()
436         Return the allowed execution cost that is remaining.
437     * varargs int *status(object)
438         Return status information.  The 'fields' of the returned array are
439         described in the automatically generated include file "status.h".
440     * void swapout()
441         Swap out all objects.
442 
443 DGD 1.0.a6
444 
445  - Fixed a problem in kfun/debug.c in case RUSAGE was defined, but DEBUG was
446    not.
447  - Included size of tables in O_PROGSIZE, as given by the status() kfun.
448  - Fixed an overflow problem in integer case ranges.
449  - Renamed config option "reserved_stack" to "reserved_cstack", and added
450    "reserved_vstack".
451  - Both the renaming of and the renaming to the auto object and the driver
452    object is now illegal.
453  - Repeated call_others to the same function are now faster on average.
454  - The control blocks of precompiled objects are swapped out no longer.
455  - Fixed a bug in the editor substitute command, which could mess up if
456    substitutions occurred and didn't occur on alternate lines.
457  - Fixed a possible memory leak in restore_array and restore_mapping, in
458    case the save file was faulty.
459  - Fixed a bug with global integer variables as lvalue arguments to sscanf()
460    in typechecked functions.
461  - Improved some compiler error messages.
462  - A new prototype for an inherited function won't replace the inherited
463    function anymore, if the prototypes are identical.
464  - Function calls with too few or too many arguments no longer cause runtime
465    errors.  It caught a lot of errors, but also broke some code which
466    shouldn't have.
467  - Fixed a bug in inheritance, which could fail if two inherited objects
468    defined the same function, and a third was unloaded.
469  - Fixed a bug in calls to functions for which an undefined prototype was
470    inherited, but which were redefined.
471  - Changed _time, _ctime, _opendir, _readdir, _closedir and _alarm into
472    P{_*} to make it work on HP systems.
473  - Telnet GA is now only sent after a (possibly empty) prompt, and not
474    after any finished output.
475  - Made BEL, BS, HT, LF, VT, FF and CR host-independent.  Moved the adding
476    of CR before LF back into comm.c (was in host/unix/connect.c in version
477    1.0.a5).
478  - State dumps:
479    swapout() and shutdown() now take a numeric argument.  If non-zero,
480    a state dump is created on the file specified by the dump_file config
481    parameter.  A state dump file can be used on startup (by specifying it
482    as the 2nd argument) to restore from.  After a successful restore,
483    driver->restored() is called, rather than driver->initialize().  User
484    objects and editor objects are not restored as such, and the driver
485    object should deal with them in restored().  This can be done by
486    registering those objects, just before the state dump occurs.
487  - Ellipsis can now be used to declare a function with arbitrary numbers
488    of arguments.  Example:
489 
490         varargs string sprintf(string format, mixed args...);
491 
492    args will have type mixed*, and will be an array with the additional
493    arguments.  Ellipsis can also be used in a call, to push all elements
494    of an array on the stack as arguments:
495 
496         call_other("/some/thing", "foo", array_with_arguments...);
497 
498  - Replaced time_t with long everywhere to make things portable.  If a time_t
499    doesn't fit in a long on a particular host, it will have to be truncated.
500  - Speeded up remove_call_out().  Removing a short-term call_out is now
501    reasonably fast.
502  - Added find_call_out().  I previously left it out because I considered
503    using it bad programming practice.  I still think so, but it might be
504    useful in some rare cases, and the current implementation is fairly fast.
505  - All of x[y .. z], x[y ..], x[.. y] and x[..] are now possible, with the
506    obvious meanings.
507  - The swapfile and editor tmpfiles are now removed on a shutdown.
508  - Fixed a bug in the compiler, which would not always cast the result of
509    a function call to int when this was needed.
510  - Errors inside a catch are now logged on stderr as well.
511  - Fixed a problem which occurred when a catch was used in a conditional
512    context in LPC->C code.
513  - Fixed a problem in the compiler, which could produce a bad symbol table
514    for the auto object (which fortunately isn't normally used).
515  - If a clash between inherited functions occurs, only the clashing functions
516    will be listed, rather than all functions that are inherited more than
517    once.
518  - Better removal of unused call_out slots in objects.
519  - sscanf("foobar","foo%s") will result in an error.
520  - New kfun: call_trace().  It returns the call trace as an array (see the
521    doc for specifics).
522  - driver->log_error() is now called (locked) with two arguments, the error
523    string and a flag which indicates if the error is caught.  It should make
524    use of call_trace().  The driver itself no longer logs runtime errors.
525  - If an object is inherited that itself inherits an object that has been
526    destructed, call driver->recompile(obj).  The driver object must destruct
527    the object to force it to be recompiled, if this is desired.
528  - A missing #endif would not always give an error.
529  - Using a void value when typechecking now gives the error "void value not
530    ignored" always.
531  - Added mapping - array and mapping & array.
532  - Functions with a declared non-void type must return a value.
533  - Variables could erroneously be redeclared as private in the same object.
534  - Redeclaration of an inherited function or variable will now give the
535    inherited object in the errormessage.
536 
537 DGD 1.0.a7
538 
539  - Fixed a bug with saving large numbers in arrays and mappings.
540  - Improved memory allocation in case sizeof(long) > 4.  Also improved
541    efficiency for the case that DEBUG is not defined.
542  - String hash tables are no longer cleared before being deleted.  Some hash
543    tables used by the compiler which were previously statically allocated are
544    now dynamically allocated.
545  - The >> and << operators now shift unsigned values, so the result is
546    identical on all hosts.
547  - Fixed a memory leak in i_index() and i_index_lvalue().
548  - Comm.c can now deal with ^Z as well.
549  - Cleaned up the inheritance logic in control.c, and removed some bugs.
550  - Fixed several bugs in the restoring of object names.
551  - Fixed some code in switch_str(), which would only work properly for the
552    auto object and driver object.
553  - Replaced longs by Ints in the editor, to save space on hosts with
554    sizeof(long) > 4.
555  - Fixed a bug in c_tst() and c_not().
556  - Changed the alarm/timeout interface.  co_call() now calls P_timeout()
557    to determine if an alarm timed out; co_timeout() has been removed.
558  - main() is now in local.c, and should call dgd_main(argc, argv).
559  - All occurrances of fprintf(stderr, ...) replaced with P_message(...) .
560  - path_object() (call_other, clone_object, find_object) from the auto
561    object will no longer call the driver object to translate the path.
562  - Fixed yet another problem in the C code generated for catch().
563  - Added function name comments to generated C code.
564  - The class specifier private no longer implies static, for variables.
565    This means that private variables can be saved with save_object(), and
566    restored with restore_object().  To get the old behaviour, use both
567    static and private.
568  - A new kfun is added, dump_state().  swapout() and shutdown() no longer
569    do a state dump through a flag argument; dump_state() should be used
570    instead.  dump_state(1) will create an incremental dump on top of an
571    old one.
572  - Fixed a possible memory leak in sscanf().
573  - Fixed a bug in src/host/unix/connect.c which could hang the driver.
574  - Made IAC GA optional.  The client must request it with IAC DONT TELOPT_SGA,
575    which the driver will respond to with IAC WONT TELOPT_SGA.  I badly
576    underestimated the number of faulty clients, and even plain telnets could
577    not handle it.
578  - Editor marks and secondary buffers were not cleared in between edits.
579  - In the editor, changing a line into nothing could cause a crash.
580  - Added a float type.  Fairly useless for muds, but not for other
581    applications.  Everything has been adapted (save_object, sscanf), but
582    apart from floatp no kfuns have been added yet.  Four new builtin kfuns,
583    ADD1, ADD1_INT, SUB1, SUB1_INT have been added.
584    The float type has 1 sign bit, 11 exponent bits and 36 mantissa bits.
585    The format is basically a truncated IEEE double, with a few alterations:
586    exponent 0x7fff is illegal, and there is no gradual underflow.
587  - Fixed various minor bugs in the compiler.  Also made runtime typechecking
588    more strict, and improved optimisation.
589  - The dataspace of destructed objects that are not freed for some reason
590    is now deleted right away.
591  - The object argument has been removed from driver->path_ed_read(),
592    driver->path_ed_write() and driver->path_object().
593  - intp(), floatp(), stringp(), objectp(), arrayp() and mappingp() have
594    been replaced with a single kfun, typeof().
595  - The swapfile is not created before sectors are actually written to it.
596  - A float.h file is now created on startup.
597  - Added 2nd swapout measure for last five minutes.
598  - Renamed config parameter swap_sector to sector_size.
599  - Added some kfuns: fabs(), floor(), ceil(), fmod(), frexp(), ldexp(), modf().
600  - Floats (both global and local) are initialized to 0.0, rather than integer 0.
601  - Added time of compilation to control block struct.
602  - Callouts have been changed: call_out() now returns an integer > 0, which
603    must be given as an argument to remove_call_out() to remove it.  The kfun
604    find_call_out() no longer exists.  status(obj) gives a list of all callouts
605    in an object.
606  - Renamed port_number to telnet_port, added binary_port (dummy, for now).
607  - Reorganized status() and limits.h .
608  - Fixed several bugs in the handling of callouts, which could result in random
609    memory trashing.
610  - Fixed some bugs in control.c for sizeof(int) == 2.
611  - Fixed a bug in the swapping of large mappings.
612  - Some more editor bugs fixed.
613  - In the editor, use of | is restricted to inside global commands.
614  - editor() no longer sends output to receive_message() in the editor object,
615    but returns it as a string.
616  - The optimizer has been made a separate part of the compiler.
617  - dump_state() changed again: it will now sync the swapfile, append some
618    tables at the end, and move it to a dump file.  Afterwards, the driver will
619    read from the dump file to reconstruct the swap file at low priority.
620    Incremental dumps no longer exist.
621  - The swapfile was not always created before a dump was made, resulting in
622    a fatal error.
623  - float.h and float.c have been renamed to xfloat.h and xfloat.c, respectively.
624  - The maximum stack depth of a function call with one argument was not
625    computed correctly.
626  - Multiple inheritance of the same file in different ways could, in some
627    cases, lead to invalid fcall and variable offsets.
628  - Fixed a bug that caused spurious stack overflow errors.
629  - Fixed a problem with expressions of the form (a) ? (b, c) : d.
630  - Dead code is now silently thrown away, instead of resulting in a
631    "statement not reached" error.
632  - Changed #include "float.h" to #include "xfloat.h" in generated C code.
633  - Fixed a bug in the optimizer which mangled sscanf() assigned value checks.
634  - The replies to DO TELOPT_SGA and DONT TELOPT_SGA were accidentally reversed.
635  - Lexical errors were repeated for each rescanning of the input.
636  - Some improvements in the typechecking for mixed... .
637  - Enabled binary port.
638  - Fixed a bug with # define foo "gnu.h" \n # include foo
639  - Some bugs in binary connections fixed.
640  - Fixed a bad bug in comm.c which could hang the driver.
641  - Fixed a newly introduced lexical scanner problem.
642  - get_dir("/a/b") returned "a/b" as the name of the file, instead of "b".
643  - Oops, several private variables with the same name would each be saved with
644    save_object().  Private for variables made to imply static again.
645  - Filename matching in get_dir() made more efficient (thank you, Aedil).
646  - Fixed a bug in && and || used as standalone expressions.
647  - Dump files now include a kfun table.  This enables the driver to restore
648    a dump file that was made by a driver version with fewer kfuns.  As long
649    as no kfuns are removed and the interpreter itself is not changed, dump
650    files can be used with future driver versions.
651  - Let (x, 0) match any type but float in situations where 0 would.
652  - The command line restore file argument is taken to be relative to the
653    current directory at the time, rather than relative to the mudlib directory.
654  - Makefiles brought up to date.
655  - (int) 0.0 yielded a wrong value.
656  - Max execution cost is no longer halved during a callout.
657 
658 DGD 1.0.8
659 
660  - Fixed a problem with catch(x, y) and lock(x, y).
661  - Fixed file descriptor leak in swap.c.
662  - Fixed a bug in swap.c which could cause confusion between sectors just
663    after a state dump.
664  - Removed "*** State dumped." message after a state dump.
665  - Fixed a bug in the editor which could result in an infinite loop.
666  - Changed the default return value of float functions to 0.0.
667  - SunOS 4.x appears to have a problem: sometimes an alarm will interrupt
668    a read or write on a file, even though this is supposed to be impossible
669    and SV_INTERRUPT is not set.  As a workaround, a new timeout handler is
670    provided that doesn't use alarms.
671  - Fixed a bug in the C code generated for ++ and -- of non-integer variables.
672  - Using memcmp() in str_cmp() was unwise, because the lexical ordering of
673    characters may differ per host, and on a NeXT memcmp() is buggy.  Replaced
674    with explicit code that compares unsigned characters.  This may invalidate
675    old dump files for hosts with signed character compare in memcmp() !
676  - If the swap file cannot be renamed to the dump file, attempt to copy it
677    instead.
678  - Cleaned up host.h a bit.  GENERIC_* no longer uses alloca() to make it
679    more generic.
680  - Fixed a bug in the editor which in extremely rare cases might wipe out
681    a line.
682  - Added newline-in-input optimisation as per Dark's networking package.
683  - Made it impossible for the editor to read a directory.
684  - A file can only be removed or renamed if the host system permits write
685    access.
686  - Avoided some typecast warnings.
687  - Fixed the following bug:  int i, string s; i = 2; s = s + i;
688    This used to give the integer value 2 to s.  Now s gets the value "02".
689    As a corollary, casting from int/float to string and from string to
690    int/float is now possible.
691  - Fixed a bug which occurred if a function for which an implicit undefined
692    prototype was created was defined as private in the same object.
693  - Fixed a bug that prevented restoring a state dump made by a driver with
694    fewer builtin kfuns.  Unfortunately, the bugfix affects state dumps too,
695    and old state dumps can no longer be used. (!)
696  - Added a summand operator to transparently compute expressions of the form
697 
698     x1[a .. b] + x2[.. c] + x3[d ..] + x4 + .. + xn[..]
699 
700    without intermediate results, as suggested by Aedil.
701  - Discarded the 'a' in the version number; DGD is beyond the alpha stage.
702  - call_trace() now also includes the function arguments.  It is the
703    responsibility of the mudlib programmer to make sure that this doesn't
704    cause security problems (this also applies to status(obj)[O_CALLOUTS]).
705  - Fixed a bug which in some cases prevented proper removal of unreachable code.
706  - Fixed an optimisation which was skipped in conjunction with the summand
707    operator.
708  - Fixed a bug which caused <digits>. to be rejected as a valid floating point
709    constant.
710 
711 DGD 1.0.9
712 
713  - call_trace() could give incorrect arguments for varargs functions.
714  - Fixed a bug which could occur for strval[i] = intval.
715  - Attempt to use telnet linemode.  This makes *BSD telnet usable, let's hope
716    nothing else breaks.
717  - Fixed a bug in code generated for switch statements which only have a
718    default entry with break statement.
719  - Fixed an overflow problem in the array/mapping sort compare function.
720  - DGD will now compile without warnings using gcc 2.4.5 -ansi -pedantic.
721  - Fixed a bug in telnet subnegotiations.
722  - Fixed some other ANSI C pointer problems.
723  - The driver can now call static functions in the auto object.
724  - Found a crasher in str.c::str_put() that had eluded me for quite a while.
725  - Undid the static function patch (dumpfile incompatibility and other
726    problems).
727  - Made state dumps for which the whole swapfile was copied in one go more
728    efficient.
729  - 'make a.out' will now always relink a.out.  This fixes a dependency problem.
730  - Global commands in the editor would crash with a bad regular expression.
731  - Widened the size limits for arrays and mappings somewhat.
732  - The precompiler will accept an optional 3rd argument, the output file.
733    This file will be removed if an error occurs during precompiling (fixing
734    another dependency problem).
735  - Turned off type errors for ?: .  In case of a type conflict, the result
736    type is mixed.
737  - Extended status() array with some limits, also in status.h (needed for
738    continuous muds).
739  - Added array | array (A + (B - A)) and array ^ array ((A - B) + (B - A)).
740  - String and array reference counts are now 4 bytes, instead of 2.
741  - Fixed a bug that could remove code with a case label inside.
742  - Translate std include file to a local filename before using it.
743  - Removed spurious path_file() from path_object().
744  - Added path_unfile() to translate a filename in host format back to DGD
745    format.
746  - Fixed a problem regarding mapping aggregates with identical indices;
747    calling error() from within qsort() might leave the mapping in an
748    inconsistant state.
749  - Changed YYDEPTH into YYMAXDEPTH in config.h; this should work for a wider
750    range of yaccs.
751 
752 DGD 1.1
753 
754  - Fixed a bug that caused precompiled kfun calls to be wrong if kfuns were
755    added since the last state dump.
756  - The type of (expr1 ? void : expr2) and (expr1 ? expr2 : void) is now always
757    void.
758  - Fixed another bug in switch statements with only a default label inside.
759  - Made sure that mappings are compacted before the size is checked.
760  - Fixed a bug that might occur while restoring object filenames in a state
761    dump.
762  - DUMPFILE COMPATIBILITY ABANDONED.  All following pre-1.1 versions won't be
763    dumpfile compatible with 1.0.9 and probably not with eachother, either.
764    I'll make a dumpfile converter for 1.0.9->1.1.
765  - The evaluation order of array and mapping aggregates is now left to right,
766    because this is more intuitive.  From now on I'll consider the evalution
767    order of aggregates and function arguments to be fixed, rather than
768    undefined.
769  - Added list of directly inherited objects to the control block.
770  - Won't cause a fatal error on too small dynamic chunk anymore (just allocate
771    the larger chunk).
772  - Some Mac compatibility fixes.
773  - Added T_RESERVED type for add-on packages.
774  - Fixed character initializer tables.
775  - Added keyword "atomic".
776  - Got rid of C_LOCAL.
777  - More Mac compatibility fixes.
778  - Merged fcontrol.h with comp/control.h.
779  - Removed "atomic" again.  One way or another, multitasking will wreak
780    havoc with DGD's concept of data being local to objects (which is very
781    important for efficient swapping).  Maybe in 2.0.
782  - Reduced memory usage, at the cost of slightly slower string and array
783    deletes.
784  - Speeded up swapping of objects with a tangle of arrays and mappings.
785  - Arrays that are shared between objects are now made unique in each object
786    immediately after execution has completed, rather than at the moment when
787    one of the objects is swapped out.
788  - Fixed some remaining ANSI C incompatible prototypes <-> function
789    declarations in the editor.
790  - Fixed some bugs in the array exporting code.
791  - And some more.
792  - And some in the memory reduction changes as well.
793  - get_dir(foo) will always treat foo as a pattern, even if there is a file
794    with that name.
795  - Generate a compile-time error for functions larger than 64K.  Programs can
796    now be larger than 64K.
797  - Compile-time checking for too many string constants or function calls.
798    The number of arrays and string values in an object can be larger than
799    65535.  Replaced longs by Uints in swapping functions.  Extended ref
800    counts to Uint for swapped-out data.
801  - Binary connections don't buffer anymore.  send_message() returns 1 if the
802    write succeeded (always 1 for telnet connections), and 0 if the write
803    failed.
804  - Fixed a bug in the compiler that was exposed by the changes in the code
805    generator.
806  - Inheriting a renamed clone could cause trouble.
807  - send_message() now returns the number of bytes written (1 for echo on/off)
808    or 0 in case of an error.
809  - Fixed a bug introduced in get_dir() in the latest rewrite.
810  - Temporarily disabled new export code to track down bugs.
811  - Fixed a tiny destructive bug in the swapping code, recently introduced.
812  - 0.0 == 0 was 0, is now 1 (!0.0 already was that).  For all other value
813    combinations, integers and floats remain different.
814  - Re-enabled export code.
815  - Allow any binary port value (telnet port remains >= 1024).
816  - Function_object() won't find a static function in a different object anymore
817    (because it cannot be called).
818  - Smarter selection of objects for swapping.
819  - Rebuilt the main loop so continuous exec cost errors during callouts don't
820    result in user command starvation.
821  - Ignore NUL characters in telnet input.
822  - Fixed another array exporting bug.
823  - foo() = bar; could crash the system.
824  - An incomplete recovery from a syntax error during compilation of a switch
825    statement could result in a crash.
826  - Discarded I_PUSH_FLOAT2 and I_CALL_AFUNC in favor of I_CALL_IKFUNC and
827    I_CALL_IDFUNC (needed for object upgrading).
828  - Change of the version numbering scheme: rather than 1.0.9.24, the current
829    version is 1.0.10.  The next major release is still 1.1.
830  - Made value stack and call stack dynamically expandible.
831  - Fixed several stack depth miscalculation bugs.
832  - Added a cleanup function to the error context, used mainly to clean up
833    the value stack in case of an error.
834  - (int) "12a" now results in an error, as does (float) of the same.
835  - Renamed "exec cost" to "ticks".
836  - Replaced lock() with the following language construct:
837 
838     rlimits (stack; ticks) {
839         /* statements */
840     }
841 
842    This will execute code with reduced or increased stack depth and ticks.
843    There are two new driver calls to handle it: at compile time, for each
844    rlimits construct, driver->compile_rlimits(objectname) is called.  If this
845    function returns non-zero, the rlimits is allowed without futher ado.  If
846    it returns 0, then at runtime there will be an additional check,
847    driver->runtime_rlimits(obj, stack, ticks).  If zero is returned from this
848    function, an error results.  This allows fast execution of rlimits
849    constructs in trusted code.  For precompiled code, the return value is
850    always assumed to be 1 (!).
851    By default, there are no resource limits.  Also, driver->log_error() is
852    called without resource limits.
853    -1 can be used in rlimits to signify that a resource should be unlimited.
854  - Removed call_stack, value_stack, reserved_cstack, reserved_vstack and
855    exec_cost from the config file.
856  - Replaced max execution cost with remaining stack depth and remaining ticks
857    in the array returned by status().
858  - Removed kfun get_exec_cost().
859  - Replaced driver->compile_log() with driver->compile_error(file, line, err).
860    By default, DGD now writes nothing to stderr at all.
861  - Renamed driver->log_error() to driver->runtime_error().
862  - Fixed a bug in the new error cleanup code.
863  - Fixed some rlimits bugs in the C code generator.
864  - Fixed a nasty bug in the code generated for sscanf().
865  - And another one, and another one in the error cleanup code as well.
866  - Made it possible to use ( ) in inherit string expressions.
867  - Fixed a bug in the C code generator; no check was made to see if the stack
868    had been reallocated after a kfun- or function call.
869  - Fixed a memory leak in get_dir(), also introduced in the latest rewrite.
870  - Renamed all p_* prototype headers to pt_* in an attempt to avoid conflicts
871    with existing library functions on some machines.
872  - Binary connections: if send_message() cannot send a string in one go, it
873    puts the remainder in a buffer which is emptied as soon as possible.  When
874    all data is sent, message_done() is called in the user object (but only if
875    the output could not be sent all at once).  Using send_message() while
876    previous output is still unfinished will flush the buffer, and prevent
877    message_done() from being called.
878    Binary connections have 64K buffers which are allocated statically, so
879    the static chunk should be large enough (70K or so).
880  - Run callouts less often if they take more than half of the available time.
881    May be useful for muds on extremely heavily loaded hosts.
882  - After runtime_error() was called, no resource limits would be set.
883  - Renamed path_ed_read() and path_ed_write() to path_read() and path_write(),
884    respectively.
885  - When the last reference to a program is removed, call
886    driver->remove_program(objname).  The call is done with rlimits -1; -1 and
887    errors will be caught and ignored.
888  - Removed driver->path_object() and driver->compile_object().
889  - Added kfun compile_object(name): compile the named object, which must not
890    already exist.
891  - clone_object() now takes a (master) object as an argument.
892  - find_object() no longer calls driver->path_object() to translate a path.
893  - call_other() now calls driver->call_object() to translate a string to an
894    object.
895  - Added list of precompiled objects to status().
896  - Increased the number of different sized large free chunks the static memory
897    manager can handle.
898  - In connect.c, calls to accept() will now only be done if the controlling
899    socket was marked for reading by select().
900  - The object free list wasn't properly maintained anymore.
901  - A cloned object erroneously didn't have its creator function called right
902    away.
903  - Replaced driver->path_inherit() by driver->inherit_program(), which must
904    return an object (which may be compiled inside the function).
905  - driver->inherit_program() was accidentally called when implicitly inheriting
906    the auto object, too.
907  - Added '^' to filename pattern matching (as in csh).
908  - Fixed a problem with precompiling objects that inherited the auto object.
909  - When restoring from a state dump, callouts in objects no longer need to
910    be patched.
911  - Added precompiled objects to the dumpfile (though nothing is done with them
912    yet on restore).
913  - 1.1 DUMPFILE FORMAT REACHED.  Up to the next major release, version 1.1,
914    the dumpfile format will not change.
915  - Made ticks a more reasonable measure.  In many cases it just reflects what
916    I think something should take -- or what I want to make expensive.
917    Currently, the editor still takes no ticks.
918  - The object table wasn't properly prepared before including it in a state
919    dump.
920  - catch { stmts } is now allowed as a statement.
921  - Fixed some bugs in the new catch code.
922  - Fixed a long-standing but never before discovered problem with destructed
923    objects as mapping indices.
924  - The driver object can inherit the auto object again, and the auto object
925    can use the rlimits statement without limitations.
926  - If an error is caught internally, the proper error handler is called again.
927  - Ported DGD to Windows 95/NT.  Left to do: starting by double-clicking a
928    config file, program icons.
929  - Disallowed #include from the config file, which would cause a crash.
930  - Precompiler brought up to date with latest change in error handling.
931  - Send IAC GA to all users with a prompt, not just the current user.
932  - Swapping in an object with more than 127 inherits might result in a crash.
933  - Precompiling still didn't work for objects with more than one level of
934    inheritance.
935  - Error recovery was incomplete in case of an error in sscanf() or in
936    user->close().
937  - Win32 version can now be started by double-clicking the config file.
938  - Fixed a nasty error context bug.
939  - Fixed a rare bug in string swapping.
940  - user->close() now takes an integer argument, 1 if the connection is closed
941    from the mudlib, 0 if it's due to linkdeath.
942  - Made statedumps more efficient.
943  - The static chunk size can now be 0, which has the effect of never causing
944    an automatic swapout, at the cost of more memory fragmentation.
945  - Made sure ctime() works, even if the host implementation cannot handle
946    "negative" times.
947  - Fixed a problem in the new statedump code, which might occur with frequent
948    statedumps.
949  - The priority queue for to be swapped-out objects now works better.
950  - Merged in Mac compatibility fixes.
951  - Discontinued support for MINIX_68K and ATARI_ST.
952  - Fixed a bug in inherited function calls with very large function tables.
953  - Fixed a bug which could result in connections being closed immediately,
954    often occurring if connections were being opened and closed at a rapid
955    rate.
956  - Process termination is now done through driver->interrupt().  This
957    function must exist and should minimally consist of
958 
959     void interrupt() { shutdown(); }
960 
961  - Fixed a problem with %% in a sscanf format string.
962  - Fixed a potential crash if the stack array created in call_trace() was
963    too big.
964  - call_other(obj, "foo\0bar") could be used to call the function foo.
965  - Binary connections now have output buffering in the user object, instead
966    of a 64K static buffer.  User objects that are buffering will not
967    normally be swapped out.  The input buffer size for a binary connection
968    has been increased to 8K.
969  - Made often-used objects less likely to be swapped out during a lull in
970    activity.
971  - With global typechecking, a function without declared type has type void.
972  - Fixed some bugs in new output buffer handling.
973  - During precompilation, inherit paths without a leading slash are now
974    considered to be relative to the current directory, rather than absolute.
975  - C code generated for >>= and <<= operators made more portable.
976  - Disambiguated results of division and remainder operations.
977  - No more core dumps for errors in the configuration phase.
978  - PC version: don't exit program immediately on a configuration error when
979    started without an argument.
980  - Fixed a problem in precompiled code generated for catch { }.
981  - Catch { code; } is now optionally followed by : { caught; }.
982  - Functions without declared type were accidentally untypechecked, even with
983    global typechecking enabled.
984  - Made hashtables faster in some cases.
985  - PC version: don't ask for confirmation if the program is stopped from the
986    outside and was started with an argument, making it easier to run it as
987    a service on NT.
988  - Fixed a bug that made it possible to access files outside the mudlib
989    directory on Win32.
990  - Fixed a rare problem with arrays as mapping indices.
991  - If the time was set back during callout processing, it was possible for
992    the next callout never to be started.
993  - Fixed a bad memory fragmentation problem in case a block of memory was
994    allocated that was larger than the dynamic chunk.
995  - DUMPFILE FORMAT CHANGED AGAIN.  This unfortunately became necessary because
996    of missing information for dumped precompiled objects.  When the dumpfile
997    format stabilizes again, it will be marked in this file.
998  - restore_object() now does typechecking, if global typechecking is enabled.
999  - Faster code with global typechecking.
1000  - Re-introduced keyword "atomic".
1001  - Extended precompiled function index from 2 to 3 bytes.
1002  - Accept binary connections more quickly.
1003  - Optimize generated code a little further, particularly generated C code.
1004  - Fixed possibly bad code generated for breaking out of a catch.
1005  - Fixed a problem with ellipsis in calls to functions without prototype.
1006  - Improved dead code removal.
1007  - Tweaked the last tweaks in generated C code optimization.
1008  - Bugfix in C code generated for ?:.
1009  - Attempt to avoid Linux bug in socket writes.
1010  - Generate better C code for calls to builtin kfuns.
1011  - Generate summand operators in more cases.  Also fixed a crashing bug in
1012    case all operands of a summand are 0.
1013  - Fixed a compiler bug which sometimes rejected x..x case label ranges.
1014  - Generate summand operators in even more cases, where array aggregates
1015    are now also included.
1016  - Added 2nd argument to driver->remove_program(), the compile time of the
1017    object.
1018  - Cleaned up comm.c a bit.
1019  - Made sector independent of uindex.
1020  - String constants are no longer shared between control block and dataspace
1021    when swapped out.
1022  - Objects can be recompiled before being destructed if they are not inherited.
1023    This has the effect of upgrading the object and all clones to the new
1024    program.  Variables with the same name and type (private and static don't
1025    matter) are preserved in the upgraded object; all other variables are
1026    initialized to 0.
1027  - Brought dump_function() up to date.
1028  - Fixed a nasty bug in the runtime support for precompiled code.
1029  - Some fixes for the order of events in the main loop, and telnet buffer
1030    flushing in comm.c.
1031  - Several bugs fixed in the recompiling code.
1032  - And some related ones.
1033  - And some more.
1034  - Array swapping and exporting made faster.
1035  - When an object is destructed, remove callouts immediately from the callout
1036    table.
1037  - Dumpfiles from different platforms are now converted at boot time.
1038  - Fixed a bug in restoring the swap header.
1039  - Generate a trace.h include file for call_trace() on startup.
1040  - Brought precompilation up to date with latest changes.
1041  - General code cleanup.
1042  - Fixed a nasty crasher in endthread() with the help of Sieni@Muhveli.
1043  - Fixed a problem with destructed objects as mapping indices.
1044  - Optimized communications handling and get_dir().
1045  - Fixed memory leak in generated C code.
1046  - Made the maximum string size the same on all hosts and removed
1047    MAX_ARRAY_SIZE and MAX_MAPPING_SIZE from limits.h (status()[ST_ARRAYSIZE]
1048    should be used).
1049  - If select() is interrupted, make sure that all socket read flags are zero.
1050  - DUMPFILE FORMAT STABLE AGAIN, and it had better not change before 1.1...
1051  - Added 3rd argument to runtime_error(), ticks left, and removed ST_ASTACKDEPTH
1052    and ST_ATICKS.
1053  - Patterns in get_dir() accidentally matched almost anything.
1054  - Several mapping problems fixed.
1055  - Added kfun previous_program().
1056  - The start time was not restored properly.
1057  - Made callouts more accurate when time() is used for timing, at the cost of
1058    an extra system call for each new callout.
1059  - Fixed a bug in restoring a sector map that didn't fit in one sector.
1060  - Fixed an ancient bug in #if expressions.
1061  - Can't use \0 in kfun file name argument anymore.
1062  - Let status(obj) give updated information about objects recompiled during the
1063    current thread.
1064  - Make more of an effort to buffer telnet output if all of it could not be
1065    sent right away, making sure that no telnet escape sequences are sent only
1066    partially.
1067  - Fixed a bug occurring when objects are upgraded and destructed in the
1068    same thread.
1069  - __FILE__ did not include a leading /.
1070  - Some other upgrade-related bugs fixed.
1071  - Fixed bug which would occur with foo() { return catch("bar"); }
1072  - Setting a variable didn't work in the editor.
1073  - Initial Mac port completed.
1074  - Split up comm initialization in two parts, one for general initialization
1075    and one to start listening on the ports.
1076  - Fixed a bad bug in the code generated for a return out of a catch { }.
1077    Unfortunately, the fix affects the code generated for all catches, making
1078    older state dump files INCOMPATIBLE.  It is possible to convert an old
1079    dumpfile if all objects in it are upgraded, and if the objects that perform
1080    the upgrade have no catch or are precompiled.
1081  - return val; was typechecked only at compile time, not at runtime.
1082  - Fixed some bugs in the Mac port.
1083  - Make sure all connections are closed as soon as it is known that the
1084    system is shutting down, instead of waiting until after a state dump.
1085  - Fixed a loss-of-variable bug in upgrading while restoring state.
1086  - Enabled edit menu in Mac port.
1087  - Precompiled objects now replace existing objects silently, rather than
1088    causing an upgrade.  The object replaced must have the same inherit,
1089    string, function definition, variable definition and function call tables.
1090    NOTE: the dumpfile format was slightly changed, but state dumps that do
1091    not contain precompiled objects are unaffected.
1092  - Added a new status(obj) field, the "index" of the master object (the
1093    object itself unless it's a clone).  This is a unique ID, and will help
1094    distinguishing different issues of the same object, and linking clones
1095    to a particular issue.
1096  - Added third argument to driver->remove_program(), the "index" of the
1097    object.
1098  - Made DGD compile on SunOS 5.5, too.
1099  - Fixed a bug in precompiled code generated for sscanf().
1100  - Fixed a stack depth miscalculation bug in the optimizer.
1101  - Removed >= 1024 limitation on telnet_port (makes no sense on non-unix
1102    machines).
1103  - Error messages in restore_object() were accidentally too terse.
1104  - Improved some other error messages.
1105  - Using more than 7 indirection stars now results in an error.
1106  - Optimize `1 && a' and `0 || a' to `!!a', rather than `a'.
1107  - Fixed a bug in upgrading an old clone after doing a recompile on the object
1108    earlier in the same thread.
1109  - Corrected some floating point rounding errors.
1110  - The return value of a redirectable function was not properly checked in
1111    a call from an untypechecked function.
1112  - Added mapping subranges.
1113  - Made dealing with destructed objects in arrays and mappings faster.
1114  - Prevent the compiler from attempting to compile foo.c directories.
1115  - Fixed a bug in multi-phase upgrading of an old clone.
1116  - Perform swapout, state dump and shutdown immediately upon completion of
1117    the thread in which they are initiated.
1118  - Worked around the latest Visual C++ bugs.
1119  - Changed the meaning of O_DATASIZE in status(obj): this now returns the
1120    number of variables, rather than the assumed amount of space they take.
1121  - Deal with the auto object possibly being upgraded while inherited.
1122  - Fixed a <very> rare bug that might occur when objects are used as mapping
1123    indices.
1124  - Made map_sizeof() a cheaper operation.
1125  - PC version: enabled the edit menu.
1126 
1127  DGD 1.2
1128 
1129  - Added swapfile compression.
1130  - Fixed a stack depth miscalculation bug.
1131  - Generate recognizable function names for precompiled functions.
1132  - Speeded up a few functions highlighted by gprof.
1133  - Removed some old compatibility code from the editor.
1134  - Increased max string length in status() to 65535.
1135  - Increased max editor output string length to 65535.
1136  - Made DGD restartable.
1137  - Fixed a line range bug in editor global commands.
1138  - Fixed a bug/typo in object upgrading.
1139  - Fixed a bug in exporting mappings.
1140  - Made compression a bit faster.
1141  - Fixed the exporting bug fix.
1142  - Use SO_OOBINLINE on sockets if the host supports it.
1143  - Clear update field in all objects after a restore.
1144  - Compensated for a bug in ctime() on some unices.
1145  - Removed many references to global variables.
1146  - Removed some code from the upgrading procedure that was unreachable.
1147  - Improved Mac edit menu.
1148  - Avoid swapping in needlessly while writing partial sectors.
1149  - Zero unused sector parts to make swapfiles more compressible.
1150  - Sped up sector allocation and removal, and fixed a bug introduced in the
1151    partial sector write patch.
1152  - The wrong stack depth was passed on to driver->runtime_error() if the
1153    the server used an internal catch.
1154  - Added a new kfun, block_input().
1155  - Fixed a leftover bug in the swapping changes that made reclaiming of freed
1156    sectors unlikely, and a crash possible just after a successful state dump
1157    had been made.
1158  - Read_file() was returning 0 in an error situation, and also when it
1159    should return "".
1160  - Fixed a memory leak introduced in the global variable rewrite.
1161  - Made editor code reentrant.
1162  - Callouts with a delay of 0 seconds are now executed as soon as possible.
1163  - Sort callouts in status(obj) by handle rather than by delay, as no actual
1164    calling order for same-delay callouts can be guaranteed.
1165  - Deal more efficiently with blocked connections.  Also don't close a
1166    connection while there is still input to process.
1167  - Optimize indexing the value returned by kernel functions: status()[i],
1168    status(obj)[i], call_trace()[i].
1169  - The value of integer arguments in precompiled functions would not always
1170    be given correctly in call_trace().
1171  - String range problems at compile time now result in a proper compile-time
1172    error again.
1173  - Make a = ({ "asd" }); a[0][1] |= 7; work correctly again.
1174  - Fixed a severe bug in the code generator that could, under some
1175    circumstances, lead to else statements also being executed when only
1176    the if statement should have been.
1177  - Fixed a bad bug in global float variable initialisation, reported by
1178    Azhrarn@Flat Earth.
1179  - In case of an error during inheritance, the name of the relevant object
1180    was not properly saved.
1181  - Compensate for the latest (post 5.0) Visual C++ problem.
1182  - Partial parse_string implementation.  Currently only does lexical scanning,
1183    and returns an array of tokens.  Only Unix makefiles have been adjusted yet.
1184  - Fixed some Mac compilation problems for various compilers.
1185  - Replaced some FREE,ALLOC pairs with REALLOC.
1186  - Completed parse_string implementation on all platforms.
1187  - Fixed a bug that prevented any restore from dump file.
1188  - Fixed a bug in REALLOC.
1189  - And some more.
1190  - Fixed two (crashing) bugs in parse_string.
1191  - And a third.
1192  - New kfuns: query_ip_name(), send_datagram() (at present for Unix only).
1193  - DGD ported to BeOS.
1194  - Fixed a crashing bug in alternative parse tree handling.
1195  - Get the precompiler to compile again (after the last kfun additions).
1196  - Fixed a bug in parse_string() that prevented proper compression of the
1197    shift/reduce parser, and could also lead to strings being erroneously
1198    rejected.
1199  - Let status() report the proper program size, even if the object is swapped
1200    out and compressed.
1201  - Increased max number of function parameters + local variables to 255.
1202  - Fixed a stack depth miscalculation bug for untypechecked code.
1203  - Generate a proper compile-time error if a string constant is indexed by
1204    an integer that is out of range.
1205  - Allow datagrams of length 0.
1206  - Ported query_ip_name() and send_datagram() to Mac and Win32.
1207  - Improved tick counting and check for overflows in parse_string().
1208  - Max number of function parameters + local variables reduced to 127, the
1209    interpreter cannot actually handle more than that many.
1210  - Removed static variables from all over.  Only the unix versions will
1211    compile at present.
1212  - Code cleanup made assignments slightly faster, at the cost of somewhat slower
1213    swapping.
1214  - Fixed a bug that could cause wrong assignments to indexed arrays in sscanf().
1215  - Avoided the nasty gethostbyname() problem on Windows 95.
1216  - Fixed a compiler typechecking bug for (mixed - array).
1217  - Fixed a crashing bug that occurs when an object has more callouts than
1218    the maximum array size.
1219  - Fixed a spurious inherited function clash in multiple inheritance.
1220  - Added private inheritance.
1221  - Avoided the use of gethostbyname() on BeOS for similar reasons as on Win95.
1222  - Non-unix versions compile again.
1223  - Fixed a float testing bug in precompiled code.
1224  - Fixed a bug in array exporting, introduced in the last assignment/swapping
1225    rewrite.
1226  - Fixed the bug in the fix.
1227  - Added the constant `nil'.  If typechecking is 0 or 1 (in the config file),
1228    nil has the value 0.  If typechecking has the value 2, nil is distinct from
1229    integer zero.
1230    String, object, array and mapping variables are initialized to nil.  Using
1231    call_other() to call a non-existant function returns nil.  Variables holding
1232    an object become nil after the object has been destructed.  Indexing a
1233    mapping with a non-existant index results in nil, and nil must be assigned
1234    to delete an index:value pair; assigning 0 has the same effect only when
1235    0 and nil are the same.
1236  - allocate() now allocates an array of nil values.  New kfuns allocate_int()
1237    and allocate_float() explicitly allocate arrays of those respective values.
1238  - In a further bit of type matching cleanup, integer 0 and floating point 0.0
1239    no longer test as equal.
1240  - Merged T_NIL with T_INVALID internally.
1241  - It is now possible to use varargs in a parameter list to specify that only
1242    the following parameters are optional:
1243 
1244         void foo(int a, varargs string b, object c)
1245         {
1246         }
1247 
1248    In typechecking mode 2, this is the only way that varargs can be used.  It
1249    is an error to call a function with too many or too few arguments, even when
1250    using call_other() (typechecking mode 2 only).
1251    Varargs is implied for the last parameter when using ellipsis, and need no
1252    longer be specified explicitly.
1253  - Changed over kfuns to the new varargs system.
1254  - Removed some kfun argument count checks that have become superfluous.
1255  - New variables in upgraded objects were initialized with integer 0 rather
1256    than nil.
1257  - Let send_message() and message_done() behave in the same way for telnet and
1258    binary connections.  send_message() now never returns -1.
1259  - Allow callouts with millisecond delays (floating point delay argument).
1260  - Process a for loop in the same order in codegenc.c as in codegeni.c (body
1261    first, then condition), to ensure that tables are generated in the same
1262    order by both.
1263  - Math functions implemented.
1264  - New kfun millitime (was added before, but not mentioned in the log).
1265  - Made behaviour of << and >> uniform on all platforms: no negative shift
1266    allowed, shifts >= 32 make the result 0.
1267  - Check that a switch doesn't contain more than 32767 cases, and a function
1268    doesn't need more than 32767 values on the stack.
1269  - Put automatic object swapping, accidentally left out in the callout rewrite,
1270    back in.  NOTE: one out of every swap_fragment objects is now swapped out
1271    at the end of each thread, rather than each second.  This means that to get
1272    the same memory usage, the swap_fragment parameter should get a
1273    considerably larger value.
1274  - Simplified the automatic object swapping; too much was happening at the
1275    end of each thread, especially with many objects in memory.
1276  - Show which function is actually being called with too many or too few
1277    arguments.
1278  - Fixed a bug which could mess up the callout table when making a state dump.
1279  - Fixed a bug in the configuration phase which mysteriously escaped notice
1280    until now.
1281  - Guard against too deep recursion in the editor.
1282  - When upgrading, don't wipe out variables that change type to mixed.
1283  - Make extra-sure that sockets under Windows and BeOS are non-blocking.
1284  - Fix a bug in calling LPC code from the string parser.
1285  - parse_string() traversed alternatives even when it didn't have to.
1286  - String case labels with embedded NUL characters were not compared properly.
1287  - Fixed a tricky bug in swapping out mappings with object indices that have
1288    been destructed and replaced by a new version with the same object index,
1289    that had eluded me for a long time.
1290  - Return value of remove_call_out() was incorrect if callout didn't exist or
1291    had millisecond delay.
1292  - Slightly better indexing of mapping with string.
1293  - Removed recursion limit on catch and rlimits.
1294  - Fixed a file descriptor leak in P_readdir() for Windows.
1295  - Fixed a crash in the first uncaught error.  Whoops.
1296  - Last batch of changes before atomic.
1297  - There is no need to use static, nomask or atomic in prototypes anymore.
1298    However, if any of these are specified, they must also be present in the
1299    actual function declaration.
1300  - Partial implementation of atomic functions.
1301  - Forbid file changes in atomically executed code.
1302  - Fixed a slew of bugs in atomic functions.
1303  - In case of an error in atomic code, call driver->atomic_error() with the
1304    full stack trace.  Everything will be undone later, except for all use of
1305    send_message() by the driver object.
1306  - ctime() didn't give the proper weekday for times > 0x7fffffff.
1307  - If there is no more input on a connection, make sure there is no pending
1308    output before closing it.
1309  - Temporarily disable compile_object(), clone_object(), destruct_object(),
1310    call_out() and remove_call_out() from within atomic code, making atomic safe
1311    to use.
1312  - Connections with pending output that failed in a write would never get
1313    closed.
1314  - Newly added mixed variables would get the value of the old variable in the
1315    same slot during upgrading.
1316  - Adjust precompiler to latest changes in callout interface.
1317  - Get DGD on BeOS to compile again.
1318  - Fix a bug in name lookup which could hang the server.

1322  - The editor now shows characters in range 0x80 - 0x9f normally.
1323  - Fixed some more bugs in the name lookup code.
1324  - Encapsulate creation of values with macros, making it easier to extend the
1325    value struct.

1339    allocated on the stack.
1340  - Fixed two more bugs in atomic commit code.
1341  - Allow the internal state machines for parse_string() to become larger than
1342    before.
1343  - Fixed the Windows quit/interrupt bug.
1344  - Fixed a bug that was introduced into parse_string().

1347  - Fixed several hard-to-trigger bugs in object upgrading.
1348  - Fixed another private inheritance bug.
1349  - Completed object undo (atomic functions).
1350    WARNING: before starting to use 1.1.97 with a statedump from a previous
1351    version, make sure there are no un-upgraded clones left in the statedump.
1352    This can be done by rebooting an additional time with the previous driver
1353    version, and immediately shutting down again with a statedump.

1368    generated C output.
1369  - Make sure the error context is cleared at the proper time.
1370  - Fixed another object undo bug.
1371  - Completed the string accounting bug fix; the earlier fix was only partial.

1376  - Fixed a bug where a connection would hang if there was pending output while
1377    the connection was lost.
1378  - Remove the swapfile before creating it, to make sure that two drivers
1379    attempting to use the same swapfile won't mess it up for both of them.
1380  - Fixed yet another object undo bug.
1381  - Undid some telnet input processing modifications, since any change in this

1427 
1428  - Destructed objects in arrays were not always dealt with properly after the
1429    introduction of atomic functions.

1441  - Fixed a find_object() bug in atomic code.
1442  - Fixed a bug that caused swap sectors to be freed at the wrong moment during
1443    a restore.
1444  - Inheriting an object both privately and non-privately could prevent
1445    functions from being found.
1446  - Under some circumstances, the call to message_done() would be delayed until
1447    the next callout, or until more user input was received.
1448  - Unix: make sure that a debugger won't interfere with the name lookup process.
1449  - Fixed a crashing bug in the compiler for a switch that contains only a
1450    default label.
1451  - Arrays saved with save_object() should save object values as nil, not 0.
1452  - Fixed the too-many-callouts check, which has been completely wrong since the
