[MLton-devel] MLton meeting in Chicago?
Thu, 17 Oct 2002 22:14:17 -0500
Welcome back Stephen. re the two basis versions, I completely agree that it
is VERY important to be able to compile code with respect to either the old
or new basis library stuff, but do you think that this should be command line
flag? I was thinking that it really belongs in the .cm file, or perhaps at
least possibly have it there. Doesn't the new CM have support for that? My
notion, and I think that we talked of this before, is to have some way in the
.cm file to specify which (or neither) basis library you want, and also if
you want MLton's library.
While you were gone Suresh asked me when I was ready to have a MLton meeting
here in Chicago. Needless to say, pretty much any time is fine by me, but I
think we should definitely do it. I'm going to be out of town between
November 9th and something like November 15th, but any other time is fine.
Alternatively, any other place would be ok to.
I've been looking at the real toString fromString and formatting stuff. The
version of SML/NJ that I have (the ancient 110.9.1) doesn't have any of the
IEEEReal.decimal_approx stuff, just raising the Fail exception saying it
isn't implemented. None of it looks to difficult to do, but the straight
forward way would be slow as a dog so I'm looking what can be done.

$1,000 for every account that you consolidate with us.
