      Factor out readField (#14364) · dbd81f7e
      Tobias Dammers authored
      Improves compiler performance of deriving Read instances, as suggested
      in the issue.
      Additionally, we introduce `readSymField`, a companion to `readField`
      that parses symbol-type fields (where the field name is a symbol, e.g.
      `(#)`, rather than an alphanumeric identifier. The decision between
      these two functions is made a compile time, because we already know
      which one we need based on the field name.

      Fix a bug in 'alexInputPrevChar' · 821adee1
      Alec Theriault authored
      The lexer hacks around unicode by squishing any character into a 'Word8'
      and then storing the actual character in its state. This happens at
      That is all and well, but we ought to be careful that the characters we
      retrieve via 'alexInputPrevChar' also fit this convention.
      In fact, #13986 exposes nicely what can go wrong: the regex in the left
      context of the type application rule uses the '$idchar' character set
      which relies on the unicode hack. However, a left context corresponds
      to a call to 'alexInputPrevChar', and we end up passing full blown
      unicode characters to '$idchar', despite it not being equipped to deal
      with these.

      Performance improvements linear regAlloc (#7258) · df636682
      Tobias Dammers authored
      When allocating and potentially spilling registers, we need to check
      the desired allocations against current allocations to decide where we
      can spill to, cq. which allocations we can toss and if so, how.
      Previously, this was done by walking the Cartesian product of the
      current allocations (`assig`) and the allocations to keep (`keep`),
      which has quadratic complexity. This patch introduces two improvements:
      1. pre-filter the `assig` list, because we are only interested in two
      types of allocations (in register, and in register+memory), which will
      only make up a small and constant portion of the list; and
      2. use set / map operations instead of lists, which reduces algorithmic

      Fix space leak in BinIface.getSymbolTable · 1c15d8ed
      Douglas Wilson authored
      Replace a call to mapAccumR, which uses linear stack space, with a
      gadget that uses constant space.
      Remove an unused parameter from fromOnDiskName.
      The tests T1292_imports and T4239 are now reporting imported names in a
      different order. I don't completely understand why, but I presume it is
      because the symbol tables are now read more strictly. The new order
      seems better in T1792_imports, and equally random in T4239.
      There are several performance test improvements.

      Make language extensions their own category in the documentation · 61f1b46e
      Joachim Breitner authored
      I.e. instead of
          .. ghc-flag:: -XUnboxedTuples
              :shortdesc: Enable the use of unboxed tuple syntax.
              :type: dynamic
              :reverse: -XNoUnboxedTuples
      one simply writes
          .. extension:: UnboxedTuples
              :shortdesc: Enable the use of unboxed tuple syntax.
      This allows language extensions to be referenced as
          If :extension:`UnboxedTuples` is enabled, then...
      This directive still creates the entries for the `-XUnboxedTuples` flag,
      so in particular,
          Set :ghc-flag:`-XUnboxedTuples` if you have to.
      still works, and lists of flags in general (e.g. for the manpage)
      include these.
      I also removed lots of links from the shortdesc of the extensions, when
      this link simply points to the section where the extension is defined.
      I removed the list of `-X` flags from the flag reference table, but added a
      table of extension under “10.1. Language options”
      Lots of text in the manual now refers to “extension `Foo`” rather than
      “flag `-XFoo`”.
      I consider `-XFoo` a historic artifact that stems from when language
      extensions were really just flags. These days, the use of `-XFoo` is
      (IMHO) deprecated: You should be using `LANGUAGE Foo`, or maybe the
      appropriate field in a `.cabal` file. See 9278994a which did this change
      to error messages already.

      Add stack traces on crashes on Windows · 99c61e22
      Tamar Christina authored
      This patch adds the ability to generate stack traces on crashes for Windows.
      When running in the interpreter this attempts to use symbol information from
      the interpreter and information we know about the loaded object files to
      resolve addresses to symbols.
      When running compiled it doesn't have this information and then defaults
      to using symbol information from PDB files. Which for now means only
      files compiled with ICC or MSVC will show traces compiled.
      But I have a future patch that may address this shortcoming.
      Also since I don't know how to walk a pure haskell stack, I can for now
      only show the last entry. I'm hoping to figure out how Apply.cmm works to
      be able to walk the stalk and give more entries for pure haskell code.

      Improve kick-out in the constraint solver · 3acd6164
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This patch was provoked by Trac #14363.  Turned out that we were
      kicking out too many constraints in TcSMonad.kickOutRewritable, and
      that mean that the work-list never became empty: infinite loop!
      That in turn made me look harder at the Main Theorem in
      Note [Extending the inert equalities].
      Main changes
      * Replace TcType.isTyVarExposed by TcType.isTyVarHead.  The
        over-agressive isTyVarExposed is what caused Trac #14363.
        See Note [K3: completeness of solving] in TcSMonad.
      * TcType.Make anyRewriteableTyVar role-aware.  In particular,
            a ~R ty
        cannot rewrite
            b ~R f a
        See Note [anyRewriteableTyVar must be role-aware].  That means
        it has to be given a role argument, which forces a little
        I think this change is fixing a bug that hasn't yet been reported.
        The actual reported bug is handled by the previous bullet.  But
        this change is definitely the Right Thing
      The main changes are in TcSMonad.kick_out_rewritable, and in TcType
      (isTyVarExposed ---> isTyVarHead).
      I did a little unforced refactoring:
       * Use the cc_eq_rel field of a CTyEqCan when it is available, rather
         than recomputing it.
       * Define eqCanRewrite :: EqRel -> EqRel -> EqRel, and use it, instead
         of duplicating its logic
