Module Name:    pkgsrc
Committed By:   tnn
Date:           Mon Oct 27 18:07:23 UTC 2008

Modified Files:
        pkgsrc/lang/clisp: Makefile PLIST distinfo

Log Message:
Update to clisp-2.47. From Aleksej Saushev via pkgsrc-wip. Changes:

* New module DBUS interfaces to the D-Bus message bus system.
  See <> for details.
* New function EXT:PROBE-PATHNAME can figure out whether the existing
  pathname refers to a file or a directory.
  See <> for details.
* New function EXT:CANONICALIZE lets you easily canonicalize a value
  before processing it.
  See <> for details.
* New user variable CUSTOM:*REOPEN-OPEN-FILE* controls CLISP behavior
  when opening an already open file.
  See <> for details.
* New SETFable function OS:FILE-SIZE extends FILE-LENGTH to pathname
  designators and lets you change file size.
  See <> for details.
  New function OS:USER-SHELLS returns the list of legal user shells.
  See <> for details.
  New SETFable functions OS:HOSTID and OS:DOMAINNAME.
  See <> for details.
* Module readline has been upgraded to readline 5.2
  (older versions 5.0 and 5.1 are, of course, still supported).
  See <> for details.
* LOAD now uses DIRECTORY only for wild *LOAD-PATHS* components, thus
  speeding up the most common cases and preventing the denial-of-service
  attack whereas CLISP would not start if a file with a name
  incompatible with *PATHNAME-ENCODING* is present in USER-HOMEDIR-PATHNAME.
* ROOM now prints some GC statistics and returns the same values as GC.
  See <> for details.
* New user variable CUSTOM:*HTTP-LOG-STREAM* controls EXT:OPEN-HTTP logging.
  See <> for details.
* Bug fixes:
  + Comparison of floats and rationals never underflows. [ 2014262 ]
  + When failing to convert a huge LONG-FLOAT to a RATIONAL, signal an
    ARITHMETIC-ERROR instead of blowing the stack. [ 2015118 ]
  + Restored TYPECODES g++ compilation [ 2015118 ], which allowed fixing
    a few GC-safety bugs.
  + Fixed a segfault when signaling some UNBOUND-VARIABLE errors in some
    interpreted code on MacOS X (introduced in 2.46). [ 2020784 ]
    Thanks to Vladimir Tzankov <>.
  + Fixed input after switching a :DOS stream to binary. [ 2022362 ]
  + Support circular objects in EQUAL and EQUALP hash-tables. [ 2029069 ]
  + Avoid C namespace pollution. [ 2146126 ]
  + Fix timeout precision in NEW-CLX. [ 2188102 ]
* ANSI compliance:
  + The sets of declaration and type names are disjoint.
  + FLET, LABELS and MACROLET respect declarations.
