      Closure inspection in GHCi · 121da25a
      mnislaih authored
      The :print, :sprint and :force commands for GHCi.
      This set of commands allows inspection of heap structures of the bindings in the interactive environment.
      This is useful to observe lazyness and specially to inspect things with undespecified polymorphic types, as happens often in breakpoints.

      Dynamic breakpoints in GHCi · 8bc615fd
      mnislaih authored
      This patch adds dynamic breakpoints to GHCi
      There is a new ':breakpoint' command to manage breakpoints.
      GHCi simply uses the breakpoint api functions in ghc-api to install itself as a client.
      The mechanism used by GHCi to keep track of enabled breakpoints is a simple table.
      When a breakpoint is hit, a new interactive session is launched and the bindings in the breakpoint are injected. Some commands are disabled in this sub session

      I found this convenient while I was extending ghci with the debugger. I wanted to put all the debugger stuff in a separate module, but I would need a huge hs-boot file to break the circular dependencies. This option seemed better

      Handle breakpoint jumps while splicing TH functions in ghci · 1df34b32
      mnislaih authored
      The dynamic linker has been modified so that it won't panic if one of the breakpointJump functions fails to resolve.
      Now, if the dynamic linker fails to find a HValue for a Name, before looking for a static symbol it will ask to
      Breakpoints.lookupBogusBreakpointVal :: Name -> Maybe HValue
      which returns an identity function for the Jump names or Nothing else.
      A TH function might contain a call to a breakpoint function. So if it is compiled to bytecodes, the breakpoints will be desugared to 'jumps'. Whenever this code is spliced, the linker will fail to find the jumpfunctions unless there is a default.

      Breakpoint code instrumentation · 37610105
      mnislaih authored
      Instrumentation gets activated by the '-fdebugging' dynflag.
      All the instrumentation occurrs in the desugarer; it consists of inserting 'breakpoint' combinators at a number of places in the AST, namely: 
       - Binding sites
       - Do-notation statements 
      These 'breakpoint' combinators will later be further desugared (at DsExpr) into ___Jump functions.
      For more info about this and all the ghci.debugger see the page at the GHC wiki:

      Playing with closures · 2c92736e
      mnislaih authored
      RtClosureInspect includes a bunch of stuff for playing with closures:
      - the datatype Closure is the low level representation type
      - the datatype Term is the high level representation type
      - cvObtainTerm is the main entry point, providing the Term representation of an arbitrary closure

      Retrieving the datacon of an arbitrary closure · ab5b8aa3
      mnislaih authored
      This patch extends the RTS linker and the dynamic linker so that it is possible to find out the datacon of a closure in heap at runtime:
      - The RTS linker now carries a hashtable 'Address->Symbol' for data constructors
      - The Persistent Linker State in the dynamic linker is extended in a similar way.
      Finally, these two sources of information are consulted by:
