./lang/ocaml, The latest implementation of the Caml dialect of ML

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.14.1, Package name: ocaml-4.14.1, Maintainer: jaapb

Objective Caml is the latest implementation of the Caml dialect of ML. The main
novelties compared with its ancestor, Caml Light, are:

* Full support for objects and classes -- here combined for the first time
with ML-style type reconstruction.
* A powerful module calculus in the style of Standard ML (but retaining
separate compilation).
* A high-performance native code compiler (in addition to a Caml
Light-style bytecode compiler).

lang/ocaml: let this build for NetBSD powerpc before 9.99.99 too.

...by enabling --enable-imprecise-c99-float-ops in those cases,
fma(3) was added to powerpc between 9.99.98 and 9.99.99.

Log message:
lang/ocaml: Add workaround for NetBSD/i386 build

The build errored with:
  configure: error: fma does not work, enable emulation with \ 
and thus that arg is passed to configure.

With the change, ocaml builds, and that unison builds and works.

(No change on any other platform.)

Log message:
Updated lang/ocaml to version 4.14.0.

This is a long-overdue update, so there are many changes. Details are in
the Changes file in the distribution.

The mk/ocaml file will be moved to lang/ocaml and the logic for selecting
whether to use the native-code compiler will be factored out into
native.mk to avoid duplications.

This is the final version before OCaml 5.0 arrives, which has
multicore support and should be a major change from the 4.x versions.

Log message:
PLIST fix for lang/ocaml for non-native architectures

This fixes the PLIST for architectures that do not use OCaml's native
compiler; other architectures should not be affected.

Thanks to Havard Eidnes and Martin Husemann for reporting the error.
