pkgsrc/lang/gforth: Makefile PLIST distinfo
Update from 0.5.0 to 0.6.2. From Jorge Ramon Acereda Macia <al004046 at anubis
dot uji dot es> in PR 23635.
User-visible changes between 0.6.1 and 0.6.2:
Bug fixes (in particular, gforth-0.6.2 compiles with gcc-3.3)
New words: LATEST, LATESTXT (LASTXT deprecated)
Operating environment: Added optional support for a C interface built
on the ffcall libraries (more portable and powerful than the old
one, but still not documented). To use it, the ffcall libraries
have to be installed before building Gforth (see INSTALL).
Miscellaneous: Gforth-fast now uses static superinstructions (some
speedup on some platforms); generally this is transparent (apart
from the speedup), but there are lots of command-line options for
controlling the static superinstruction generation.
User-visible changes between 0.6.0 and 0.6.1:
Bug fixes (installation on big-endian machines sometimes did not work)
User-visible changes between 0.5.0 and 0.6.0:
Changes in behaviour:
S": interpreted use now ALLOCATEs the string (they live until BYE).
Long word names (512MB on 32-bit systems) are now supported (change to
the header format).
New threaded code execution method: primitive-centric (allows the
following), hybrid direct/indirect threaded (easier portability),
with dynamic superinstructions (typical speedup on Athlon: factor
2). New engine gforth-itc for dealing with some potential
backwards-compatibility problems (see "Direct or Indirect Threaded?"
in the manual).
Default dictionary size is now 4MB.
Large file support on OSs that support them (i.e., files with more
than 2GB on 32-bit machines).
Gforth can now deal well with broken pipes in most situations.
vi tags files can be built with tags.fs (usage like etags.fs).
gforth.el mostly rewritten.
New image file format.
Keyboard input: EDIT-LINE K-PRIOR K-NEXT K-DELETE
File input: SLURP-FILE SLURP-FID
Programming tools: ID. .ID WORDLIST-WORDS SIMPLE-SEE
Conditional execution: [DEFINED] [UNDEFINED]
Defining Words: CONST-DOES> ]]
Input stream: PARSE-WORD EXECUTE-PARSING EXECUTE-PARSING-FILE
String comparison: STR= STR< STRING-PREFIX?
String literals: S\" .\" \"-PARSE
Floating point output: F.RDP F>STR-RDP F>BUF-RDP
Generalized prims2x.fs into Vmgen (see README.vmgen etc.); used the
new capabilities in prims (e.g., automatic handling of the return
stack and instruction stream).
