./devel/arena, ANSI C like scripting language

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.9.13, Package name: arena-0.9.13, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

A lightweight scripting language based on ANSI C. The language uses a
syntax and library similar to that of ANSI C, but adds automatic
memory management and runtime polymorphism on top of that.

The Arena language was designed with the following main features in
mind, most of which were added on top of a very C-like core to support
better ad-hoc scripting:

* syntax similar to ANSI C
* standard library similar to ANSI C
* automatic memory management
* runtime polymorphism
* support for exceptions
* support for anonymous functions

Additionally, an interpreter for the Arena language can be implemented
to be very compact in terms of both source code size and memory

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for devel category

Issues found with existing distfiles:
No changes made to these distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Upgrade arena from version 0.9.8 to 0.9.9.

Changes in this version include:

	This release fixes a possible double free problem in the
	printf() implementation.  The problem occurred when more
	conversion specifiers than function arguments were present and
	the format required a cast from the dummy void value used by
	the implementation to another type.  Thanks to Dennis Heuer
	for reporting the problem.

	Also based on a suggestion by Dennis, the interpreter no
	longer allows non-terminated escape sequences in string
	literals.  In other words, a string literal may no longer end
	in a backslash character.

	Alistair Crooks provided a couple of new example scripts that
	include interfacing to native C libraries under NetBSD.  He
	also suggested to allow hexadecimal integer literals.  These
	are now allowed and need to be prefixed with "0x".  For
	example, "0xFF" or "0xff" is the same as writing \ 

	Fabian Tschiatschek provided a patch to allow extra arguments
	to be passed to map, filter, foldl, foldr, drop_while, and
	take_while.  These are passed down into the function provided
	as the first argument.  Fabian also noticed that the
	documentation and implementation of foldr did not agree about
	the order of arguments.  The implementation was changed to
	match the language manual.

	There is a new library function called is_null that can check
	whether a memory resource contains a C NULL pointer.

patch-ab has now been removed since, with the inclusion of is_null(), there
is no need for it.

Log message:
Upgrade devel/arena from 0.9.7nb1 to 0.9.8.

Changes since previous version:

 - fix interpreter to really abort after parse errors
 - fix source file position accounting in multi-line strings

Log message:
Bump package to 0.9.7nb1

Fix two things:

+ in the internal tests, as a last resort, look for libc.so

+ when calling a foreign function from arena which returns a pointer,
if the foreign function returns NULL, make the return value from
dyn_call_ptr() into a void arena value.

Patch has been fed back upstream.
