      Change the way module initialisation is done (#3252, #4417) · a52ff761
      Simon Marlow authored
      Previously the code generator generated small code fragments labelled
      with __stginit_M for each module M, and these performed whatever
      initialisation was necessary for that module and recursively invoked
      the initialisation functions for imported modules.  This appraoch had
      drawbacks:
      
       - FFI users had to call hs_add_root() to ensure the correct
         initialisation routines were called.  This is a non-standard,
         and ugly, API.
      
       - unless we were using -split-objs, the __stginit dependencies would
         entail linking the whole transitive closure of modules imported,
         whether they were actually used or not.  In an extreme case (#4387,
         #4417), a module from GHC might be imported for use in Template
         Haskell or an annotation, and that would force the whole of GHC to
         be needlessly linked into the final executable.
      
      So now instead we do our initialisation with C functions marked with
      __attribute__((constructor)), which are automatically invoked at
      program startup time (or DSO load-time).  The C initialisers are
      emitted into the stub.c file.  This means that every time we compile
      with -prof or -hpc, we now get a stub file, but thanks to #3687 that
      is now invisible to the user.
      
      There are some refactorings in the RTS (particularly for HPC) to
      handle the fact that initialisers now get run earlier than they did
      before.
      
      The __stginit symbols are still generated, and the hs_add_root()
      function still exists (but does nothing), for backwards compatibility.

      Tidy up rebindable syntax for MDo · ba05282d
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      For a long time an 'mdo' expression has had a SyntaxTable
      attached to it.  However, we're busy deprecating SyntaxTables
      in favour of rebindable syntax attached to individual Stmts,
      and MDoExpr was totally inconsistent with DoExpr in this
      regard.
      
      This patch tidies it all up.  Now there's no SyntaxTable on
      MDoExpr, and 'modo' is generally handled much more like 'do'.
      
      There is resulting small change in behaviour: now MonadFix is
      required only if you actually *use* recursion in mdo. This
      seems consistent with the implicit dependency analysis that
      is done for mdo.
      
      Still to do:
        * Deal with #4148 (this patch is on the way)
        * Get rid of the last remaining SyntaxTable on HsCmdTop

      Fix bug #3165 (:history throws irrefutable pattern failed) · add9b7f1
      pepeiborra@gmail.com authored
      I ran across this bug and took the time to fix it, closing
      a long time due TODO in InteractiveEval.hs
      
      Instead of looking around to find the enclosing declaration
      of a tick, this patch makes use of the information already collected during the
      coverage desugaring phase

      Add rebindable syntax for if-then-else · 4e0c994e
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      There are two main changes
      
       * New LANGUAGE option RebindableSyntax, which implies NoImplicitPrelude
      
       * if-the-else becomes rebindable, with function name "ifThenElse"
         (but case expressions are unaffected)
      
      Thanks to Sam Anklesaria for doing most of the work here

      Refactor part of the renamer to fix Trac #3901 · f1cc3eb9
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      This one was bigger than I anticipated!  The problem was that were
      were gathering the binders from a pattern before renaming -- but with
      record wild-cards we don't know what variables are bound by C {..}
      until after the renamer has filled in the "..".
      
      So this patch does the following
      
      * Change all the collect-X-Binders functions in HsUtils so that
        they expect to only be called *after* renaming.  That means they
        don't need to return [Located id] but just [id].  Which turned out
        to be a very worthwhile simplification all by itself.
      
      * Refactor the renamer, and in ptic RnExpr.rnStmt, so that it
        doesn't need to use collectLStmtsBinders on pre-renamed Stmts.
      
      * This in turn required me to understand how GroupStmt and
        TransformStmts were renamed.  Quite fiddly. I rewrote most of it;
        result is much shorter.
      
      * In doing so I flattened HsExpr.GroupByClause into its parent
        GroupStmt, with trivial knock-on effects in other files.
      
      Blargh.

      Add 'rec' to stmts in a 'do', and deprecate 'mdo' · f04dead9
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      The change is this (see Trac #2798).  Instead of writing
      
        mdo { a <- getChar
            ; b <- f c
            ; c <- g b
            ; putChar c
            ; return b }
      
      you would write
      
        do { a <- getChar
           ; rec { b <- f c
                 ; c <- g b }
           ; putChar c
           ; return b }
      
      That is, 
        * 'mdo' is eliminated 
        * 'rec' is added, which groups a bunch of statements
          into a single recursive statement
      
      This 'rec' thing is already present for the arrow notation, so it  
      makes the two more uniform.  Moreover, 'rec' lets you say more
      precisely where the recursion is (if you want to), whereas 'mdo' just
      says "there's recursion here somewhere".  Lastly, all this works with
      rebindable syntax (which mdo does not).
      
      Currently 'mdo' is enabled by -XRecursiveDo.  So we now deprecate this
      flag, with another flag -XDoRec to enable the 'rec' keyword.
      
      Implementation notes:
        * Some changes in Lexer.x
        * All uses of RecStmt now use record syntax
      
      I'm still not really happy with the "rec_ids" and "later_ids" in the
      RecStmt constructor, but I don't dare change it without consulting Ross
      about the consequences for arrow syntax.

      Add tuple sections as a new feature · 58521c72
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
      This patch adds tuple sections, so that
      
      	(x,,z)  means   \y -> (x,y,z)
      
      Thanks for Max Bolinbroke for doing the hard work.
      
      In the end, instead of using two constructors in HsSyn, I used
      just one (still called ExplicitTuple) whose arguments can be
      	Present (LHsExpr id)
      or	Missing PostTcType
      
      While I was at it, I did a bit of refactoring too.

      Isaac Dupree authored
      re-recording to avoid new conflicts was too hard, so I just put it
      all in one big patch :-(  (besides, some of the changes depended on
      each other.)  Here are what the component patches were:

      Implement generalised list comprehensions · 67cb4091
      simonpj@microsoft.com authored
        This patch implements generalised list comprehensions, as described in 
        the paper "Comprehensive comprehensions" (Peyton Jones & Wadler, Haskell
        Workshop 2007).  If you don't use the new comprehensions, nothing
        should change.
        
        The syntax is not exactly as in the paper; see the user manual entry 
        for details.
        
        You need an accompanying patch to the base library for this stuff 
        to work.
        
        The patch is the work of Max Bolingbroke [batterseapower@hotmail.com], 
        with some advice from Simon PJ.

      View patterns, record wildcards, and record puns · 6a05ec5e
      Dan Licata authored
      This patch implements three new features:
      * view patterns (syntax: expression -> pat in a pattern)
      * working versions of record wildcards and record puns
      See the manual for detailed descriptions.
      
      Other minor observable changes:
      * There is a check prohibiting local fixity declarations
        when the variable being fixed is not defined in the same let
      * The warn-unused-binds option now reports warnings for do and mdo stmts
      
      Implementation notes: 
      
      * The pattern renamer is now in its own module, RnPat, and the
      implementation is now in a CPS style so that the correct context is
      delivered to pattern expressions.
      
      * These features required a fairly major upheaval to the renamer.
      Whereas the old version used to collect up all the bindings from a let
      (or top-level, or recursive do statement, ...) and put them into scope
      before renaming anything, the new version does the collection as it
      renames.  This allows us to do the right thing with record wildcard
      patterns (which need to be expanded to see what names should be
      collected), and it allows us to implement the desired semantics for view
      patterns in lets.  This change had a bunch of domino effects brought on
      by fiddling with the top-level renaming.
      
      * Prior to this patch, there was a tricky bug in mkRecordSelId in HEAD,
      which did not maintain the invariant necessary for loadDecl.  See note
      [Tricky iface loop] for details.

      Adding pushing of hpc translation status through hi files. · c1681a73
      andy@galois.com authored
      Now, if a single module *anywhere* on the module tree is built with
      -fhpc, the binary will enable reading/writing of <bin>.tix.
      
      Previously, you needed to compile Main to allow coverage to operate.
      
      This changes the file format for .hi files; you will need to recompile every library.
