      Align GHCi's library search order more closely with LDs · 95b6affc
      Tamar Christina authored
      Summary:
      Given a static library and an import library in the same folder. e.g.
      
      ```
      libfoo.a
      libfoo.dll.a
      ```
      
      running `ghci -lfoo` we should prefer the import library `libfoo.dll.a`
      over `libfoo.a` because we prefer having to just load the DLL.
      And not having to do any linking.
      
      This also more closely emulated the behaviour of LD, which has a search order of
      
      ```
      libxxx.dll.a
      xxx.dll.a
      libxxx.a
      cygxxx.dll (*)
      libxxx.dll
      xxx.dll
      ```

      Add and use a new dynamic-library-dirs field in the ghc-pkg info · 9448e627
      Duncan Coutts authored
      Build systems / package managers want to be able to control the file
      layout of installed libraries. In general they may want/need to be able
      to put the static libraries and dynamic libraries in different places.
      The ghc-pkg library regisrtation needs to be able to handle this.
      
      This is already possible in principle by listing both a static lib dir
      and a dynamic lib dir in the library-dirs field (indeed some previous
      versions of Cabal did this for shared libs on ELF platforms).
      
      The downside of listing both dirs is twofold. There is a lack of
      precision, if we're not careful with naming then we could end up
      picking up the wrong library. The more immediate problem however is
      that if we list both directories then both directories get included
      into the ELF and Mach-O shared object runtime search paths. On ELF this
      merely slows down loading of shared libs (affecting prog startup time).
      On the latest OSX versions this provokes a much more serious problem:
      that there is a rather low limit on the total size of the section
      containing the runtime search path (and lib names and related) and thus
      listing any unnecessary directories wastes the limited space.
      
      So the solution in this patch is fairly straightforward: split the
      static and dynamic library search paths in the ghc-pkg db and its use
      within ghc. This is a traditional solution: pkg-config has the same
      static / dynamic split (though it describes in in terms of private and
      public, but it translates into different behaviour for static and
      dynamic linking).
      
      Indeed it would make perfect sense to also have a static/dynamic split
      for the list of the libraries to use i.e. to have dynamic variants of
      the hs-libraries and extra-libraries fields. These are not immediately
      required so this patch does not add it, but it is a reasonable
      direction to follow.
      
      To handle compatibility, if the new dynamic-library-dirs field is not
      specified then its value is taken from the library-dirs field.
      
      Contains Cabal submodule update.
      
      Test Plan:
      Run ./validate
      
      Get christiaanb and carter to test it on OSX Sierra, in combination
      with Cabal/cabal-install changes to the default file layout for
      libraries.

      Add Windows import library support to the Runtime Linker · 4f6960bf
      Tamar Christina authored
      Summary:
      Import libraries are files ending in `.dll.a` and `.lib` depending on which
      compiler creates them (GCC, vs MSVC).
      
      Import Libraries are standard `archive` files that contain object files.
      These object files can have two different formats:
      
      1) The normal COFF Object format for object files
          (contains all ascii data and very little program code, so do not
           try to execute.)
      2) "short import" format which just contains a symbol name and
         the dll in which the symbol can be found.
      
      Import Libraries are useful for two things:
      
      1) Allowing applications that don't support dynamic linking to
         link against the import lib (non-short format) which then
         makes calls into the DLL by loading it at runtime.
      
      2) Allow linking of mutually recursive dlls. if `A.DLL` requires
         `B.DLL` and vice versa, import libs can be used to break the cycle
         as they can be created from the expected exports of the DLLs.
      
      A side effect of having these two capabilities is that Import libs are often
      used to hide specific versions of DLLs behind a non-versioned import lib.
      
      e.g. GCC_S.a (non-conventional import lib) will point to the correct
      `libGCC` DLL. With this support Windows Haskell files can now just link
      to `-lGCC_S` and not have to worry about what the actual name of libGCC is.
      
      Also third party libraries such as `icuuc` use import libs to forward to
      versioned DLLs. e.g. `icuuc.lib` points to `icuuc51.dll` etc.
      
      Test Plan:
      ./validate
      
      Two new tests added T11072gcc T11072msvc
      
      Two binary files have been added to the test folder because the "short"
      import library format doesn't seem to be creatable via `dlltool`
      and requires Microsoft's `lib.exe`.

      Print which warning-flag controls an emitted warning · 4f5b7ad8
      barrucadu authored
      Both gcc and clang tell which warning flag a reported warning can be
      controlled with, this patch makes ghc do the same. More generally, this
      allows for annotated compiler output, where an optional annotation is
      displayed in brackets after the severity.
      
      This also adds a new flag `-f(no-)show-warning-groups` to control
      whether to show which warning-group (such as `-Wall` or `-Wcompat`)
      a warning belongs to. This flag is on by default.

      Replace calls to `ptext . sLit` with `text` · f02fefd3
      Jan Stolarek authored
      In the past the canonical way for constructing an SDoc string literal was the
      composition `ptext . sLit`.  But for some time now we have function `text` that
      does the same.  Plus it has some rules that optimize its runtime behaviour.
      This patch takes all uses of `ptext . sLit` in the compiler and replaces them
      with calls to `text`.  The main benefits of this patch are clener (shorter) code
      and less dependencies between module, because many modules now do not need to
      import `FastString`.  I don't expect any performance benefits - we mostly use
      SDocs to report errors and it seems there is little to be gained here.

      Enable stack traces with ghci -fexternal-interpreter -prof · 4eba0c54
      Simon Marlow authored
      Summary:
      The main goal here is enable stack traces in GHCi.  After this change,
      if you start GHCi like this:
      
        ghci -fexternal-interpreter -prof
      
      (which requires packages to be built for profiling, but not GHC
      itself) then the interpreter manages cost-centre stacks during
      execution and can produce a stack trace on request.  Call locations
      are available for all interpreted code, and any compiled code that was
      built with the `-fprof-auto` familiy of flags.
      
      There are a couple of ways to get a stack trace:
      
      * `error`/`undefined` automatically get one attached
      * `Debug.Trace.traceStack` can be used anywhere, and prints the current
        stack
      
      Because the interpreter is running in a separate process, only the
      interpreted code is running in profiled mode and the compiler itself
      isn't slowed down by profiling.
      
      The GHCi debugger still doesn't work with -fexternal-interpreter,
      although this patch gets it a step closer.  Most of the functionality
      of breakpoints is implemented, but the runtime value introspection is
      still not supported.
      
      Along the way I also did some refactoring and added type arguments to
      the various remote pointer types in `GHCi.RemotePtr`, so there's
      better type safety and documentation in the bridge code between GHC
      and ghc-iserv.

      Maintain cost-centre stacks in the interpreter · c8c44fd9
      Simon Marlow authored
      Summary:
      Breakpoints become SCCs, so we have detailed call-stack info for
      interpreted code.  Currently this only works when GHC is compiled with
      -prof, but D1562 (Remote GHCi) removes this constraint so that in the
      future call stacks will be available without building your own GHCi.
      
      How can you get a stack trace?
      
      * programmatically: GHC.Stack.currentCallStack
      * I've added an experimental :where command that shows the stack when
        stopped at a breakpoint
      * `error` attaches a call stack automatically, although since calls to
        `error` are often lifted out to the top level, this is less useful
        than it might be (ImplicitParams still works though).
      * Later we might attach call stacks to all exceptions
      
      Other related changes in this diff:
      
      * I reduced the number of places that get ticks attached for
        breakpoints.  In particular there was a breakpoint around the whole
        declaration, which was often redundant because it bound no variables.
        This reduces clutter in the stack traces and speeds up compilation.
      
      * I tidied up some RealSrcSpan stuff in InteractiveUI, and made a few
        other small cleanups

      Remote GHCi, -fexternal-interpreter · 4905b83a
      Simon Marlow authored
      Summary:
      (Apologies for the size of this patch, I couldn't make a smaller one
      that was validate-clean and also made sense independently)
      
      (Some of this code is derived from GHCJS.)
      
      This commit adds support for running interpreted code (for GHCi and
      TemplateHaskell) in a separate process.  The functionality is
      experimental, so for now it is off by default and enabled by the flag
      -fexternal-interpreter.
      
      Reaosns we want this:
      
      * compiling Template Haskell code with -prof does not require
        building the code without -prof first
      
      * when GHC itself is profiled, it can interpret unprofiled code, and
        the same applies to dynamic linking.  We would no longer need to
        force -dynamic-too with TemplateHaskell, and we can load ordinary
        objects into a dynamically-linked GHCi (and vice versa).
      
      * An unprofiled GHCi can load and run profiled code, which means it
        can use the stack-trace functionality provided by profiling without
        taking the performance hit on the compiler that profiling would
        entail.
      
      Amongst other things; see
      https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/RemoteGHCi for more details.
      
      Notes on the implementation are in Note [Remote GHCi] in the new
      module compiler/ghci/GHCi.hs.  It probably needs more documenting,
      feel free to suggest things I could elaborate on.
      
      Things that are not currently implemented for -fexternal-interpreter:
      
      * The GHCi debugger
      * :set prog, :set args in GHCi
      * `recover` in Template Haskell
      * Redirecting stdin/stdout for the external process
      
      These are all doable, I just wanted to get to a working validate-clean
      patch first.
      
      I also haven't done any benchmarking yet.  I expect there to be slight hit
      to link times for byte code and some penalty due to having to
      serialize/deserialize TH syntax, but I don't expect it to be a serious
      problem.  There's also lots of low-hanging fruit in the byte code
      generator/linker that we could exploit to speed things up.
      
      Test Plan:
      * validate
      * I've run parts of the test suite with
      EXTRA_HC_OPTS=-fexternal-interpreter, notably tests/ghci and tests/th.
      There are a few failures due to the things not currently implemented
      (see above).

      DynFlags: remove Opt_Static · 6d9c18cb
      thomie authored
      There are currently 2 different ways to test for a static or dynamic

          * Test if Opt_Static is set

      using the

      This commit replaces all queries of Opt_Static with an equivalent query

      Fix archive loading on Windows by the runtime loader · acce37f3
      Tamar Christina authored
      The runtime loader is unable to find archive files `.a` shipping
      with the inplace `GCC`.
      
      It seems the issue is caused by `findArchive` being unable to
      find any archives that are shipped using the in-place `GCC`.
      
      - It works on Linux because `findArchive` would search
        the standard Linux include path.
      - It works during compilation because `GCC` can find it's own libraries
        (we explicitly tell it where to look for libraries using the `gcc`
        wrapper around `realgcc`)
      
      So fixing the issue means using `searchForLibUsingGcc` in `findArchive`
      as well, which will then find the correct file.
      
      The reason for the error as it is, is because if we can't locate the
      library using any of the methods we have, we assume it is a system dll,
      or something on the system search path.  e.g. if trying to load
      `kernel32.dll`.
      
      There is a slight issue in that the `GHCi` code (incorrectly) favors
      `static archives` over `dynamic` ones
      
      ```
      findDll        `orElse`
      findArchive    `orElse`
      tryGcc         `orElse`
      tryGccPrefixed `orElse`
      assumeDll
      ```
      This has the unwanted effect of when `kernel32` is specified as a lib,
      it will try to load `kernel32.a` instead of `kernel32.dll`.
      
      To solve this I have added another search function that is able to
      search the Windows search paths using `SearchPath` in order to find if
      it is a dll on the system search path.
      
      The new search order is:
      
      ```
      findDll     `orElse`
      findSysDll  `orElse`
      tryGcc      `orElse`
      findArchive `orElse`
      assumeDll
      ```
      
      (`tryGccPrefixed` was rolled into `tryGcc` so it is no longer needed at
      top level)

      Allow the GHCi Linker to resolve related dependencies when loading DLLs · 6e6438e1
      Tamar Christina authored
      Summary:
      GHCi does not correctly tell the Windows Loader how to handle dependencies to DLL's
      that are not on the standard Windows load path:
      
      1. The directory from which the application loaded.
      2. The current directory.
      3. The system directory. Use the GetSystemDirectory function to get the path of this directory.
      4. The 16-bit system directory. There is no function that obtains the path of this directory,
         but it is searched.
      5. The Windows directory. Use the GetWindowsDirectory function to get the path of this directory.
      6. The directories that are listed in the PATH environment variable.
         Note that this does not include the per-application path specified by the
         AppPaths registry key. The App Paths key is not used when computing the DLL search path.
      
      So what this means is given two DLLs `A` and `B` and `B` depending on `A`.
      If we put both DLLs into a new folder bin and then call GHC with:
      
      `ghc -L$(PWD)/bin -lB`
      
      the loading will fail as the Windows loader will try to load the dependency of `B` and fail
      since it cannot find `A`.
      
      *IMPORTANT* this patch drops XP Support.
      The  APIs being used were natively added to Windows 8+ and backported to Windows 7 and Vista
      via a mandatory security patch (in 2011). This means that there is a chance that KB2533623 has
      not been installed on certain machines. For those machines I display a warning and
      temporarily expand the `PATH` to allow it to load.
      
      This patch will make sure that paths provided by the user with `-L` *and* the folder in which a
      DLL is found are added to the search path. It does so using one of two methods depending upon how
      new of a Windows version we are running on:
      
      - If the APIs are available it will use `addDllDirectory` and `removeDllDirectory`.
         The order of which these directories are searched is nondeterministic.
      - If the APIs are not available it means that we're running on a pretty old unpatched machine.
        But if it's being used in an environment with no internet access it may be the case.
        So if the APIs are not available we temporarily extend the `PATH` with the directories.
        A warning is also displayed to the user informing them that the linking may fail,
        and if it does, install the needed patch. The `PATH` variable has limitations.
      
      Test Plan:
      ./validate
      
      Added two new test T10955 and T10955dyn

      Make GHCi & TH work when the compiler is built with -prof · ce1f1607
      Simon Marlow authored
      Summary:
      Amazingly, there were zero changes to the byte code generator and very
      few changes to the interpreter - mainly because we've used good
      abstractions that hide the differences between profiling and
      non-profiling.  So that bit was pleasantly straightforward, but there
      were a pile of other wibbles to get the whole test suite through.
      
      Note that a compiler built with -prof is now like one built with
      -dynamic, in that to use TH you have to build the code the same way.
      For dynamic, we automatically enable -dynamic-too when TH is required,
      but we don't have anything equivalent for profiling, so you have to
      explicitly use -prof when building code that uses TH with a profiled
      compiler.  For this reason Cabal won't work with TH.  We don't expect
      to ship a profiled compiler, so I think that's OK.
      
      Test Plan: validate with GhcProfiled=YES in validate.mk

      Update Cabal to HEAD, IPID renamed to Component ID. · 5b0191f7
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      
      
      This commit contains a Cabal submodule update which unifies installed
      package IDs and package keys under a single notion, a Component ID.
      We update GHC to keep follow this unification.  However, this commit
      does NOT rename installed package ID to component ID and package key to
      unit ID; the plan is to do that in a companion commit.
      
          - Compiler info now has "Requires unified installed package IDs"
      
          - 'exposed' is now expected to contain unit keys, not IPIDs.
      
          - Shadowing is no more.  We now just have a very simple strategy
            to deal with duplicate unit keys in combined package databases:
            if their ABIs are the same, use the latest one; otherwise error.
            Package databases maintain the invariant that there can only
            be one entry of a unit ID.

      Support for multiple signature files in scope. · a7524eae
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      
      
      Summary:
      A common pattern when programming with signatures is to combine multiple
      signatures together (signature linking).  We achieve this by making it
      not-an-error to have multiple, distinct interface files for the same module
      name, as long as they have the same backing implementation.  When a user
      imports a module name, they get ALL matching signatures dumped into their
      scope.
      
      On the way, I refactored the module finder code, which now distinguishes
      between exact finds (when you had a 'Module') and regular finds (when
      you had a 'ModuleName').  I also refactored the package finder code to
      use a Monoid instance on LookupResult to collect together various results.
      
      ToDo: At the moment, if a signature is declared in the local package,
      it completely overrides any remote signatures.  Eventually, we'll want
      to also pull in the remote signatures (or even override the local signature,
      if the full implementation is available.)  There are bunch of ToDos in the
      code for what to do once this is done.
      
      ToDo: At the moment, whenever a module name lookup occurs in GHCi and we
      would have seen a signature, we instead continue and return the Module
      for the backing implementation.  This is correct for most cases, but there
      might be some situations where we want something a little more fine-grained
      (e.g. :browse should only list identifiers which are available through
      the in-scope signatures, and not ALL of them.)

      Fix obscure problem with using the system linker (#8935) · 383733b9
      Peter Trommler authored
      Summary:
      In a statically linked GHCi symbol `environ` resolves to NULL when
      called from a Haskell script.
      
      When resolving symbols in a Haskell script we need to search the
      executable program and its dependent (DT_NEEDED) shared libraries
      first and then search the loaded libraries.
      
      We want to be able to override functions in loaded libraries later.
      Libraries must be opened with local scope (RTLD_LOCAL) and not global.
      The latter adds all symbols to the executable program's symbols where
      they are then searched in loading order. We want reverse loading order.
      
      When libraries are loaded with local scope the dynamic linker
      cannot use symbols in that library when resolving the dependencies
      in another shared library. This changes the way files compiled to
      object code must be linked into temporary shared libraries. We link
      with the last temporary shared library created so far if it exists.
      Since each temporary shared library is linked to the previous temporary
      shared library the dynamic linker finds the latest definition of a
      symbol by following the dependency chain.
      
      See also Note [RTLD_LOCAL] for a summary of the problem and solution.
      
      Cherry-picked commit 2f8b4c
      
      Changed linker argument ordering
      
      On some ELF systems GNU ld (and others?) default to
      --as-needed and the order of libraries in the link
      matters.
      
      The last temporary shared library, must appear
      before all other libraries. Switching the position
      of extra_ld_inputs and lib_path_objs does that.
      
      Fixes #8935 and #9186

      Rename some of the functions in NameSet, to make the uniform with VarSet etc · 7460dafa
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      For ages NameSet has used different names,
        eg.   addOneToNameSet   rather than    extendNameSet
              nameSetToList     rather than    nameSetElems
      
      etc.  Other set-like modules use uniform naming conventions.
      This patch makes NameSet follow suit.
      
      No change in behaviour; this is just renaming.
      
      I'm doing this just before the fork so that merging is easier.

      is suppressed unless verbosity level is `-v2` or higher. This is done
      to reduce the compiler message noise when TH is involved, which can
