./devel/libmemmgr, Simple memory manager library

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.04, Package name: libmemmgr-1.04, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

MemMgr is a fairly trivial memory management library. There
is little it does that cannot be done using routines in the
C library. (In fact, allocation and disposal is implemented
using C library routines.) The purposes of MemMgr are two-
fold.

(i) Minimize configuration burden on applications that
dynamically allocate memory. For instance, malloc() on
some systems returns a char pointer; on others it
returns a void pointer. The MemMgr library routines
encapsulate system-specific configuration differences
and exports a fixed interface which is system-indepen-
dent. Once you compile and install it, you just use it
without thinking about whether your UNIX is System V or
BSD inspired.

(ii) Provide two parallel sets of allocation routines which
either return NULL (for applications which want to
check) or panic (for applications which simply want to
die) on allocation failures. Panicking is implemented
using the ETM library, which introduces a dependency on
the ETM distribution. So be it. I use ETM for all my
programs anyway

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:
Modernize the Makefile a bit. USE_TOOLS for groff, use SUBST instead of
doing the equivalent thing by hand.

This happens to unbreak the MirBSD build, where there is no groff installed
by default.

Log message:
Simply and speed up buildlink3.mk files and processing.
This changes the buildlink3.mk files to use an include guard for the
recursive include. The use of BUILDLINK_DEPTH, BUILDLINK_DEPENDS,
BUILDLINK_PACKAGES and BUILDLINK_ORDER is handled by a single new
variable BUILDLINK_TREE. Each buildlink3.mk file adds a pair of
enter/exit marker, which can be used to reconstruct the tree and
to determine first level includes. Avoiding := for large variables
(BUILDLINK_ORDER) speeds up parse time as += has linear complexity.
The include guard reduces system time by avoiding reading files over and
over again. For complex packages this reduces both %user and %sys time to
half of the former time.
