FILE OF NEW FEATURES ADDED TO SAIL. I.E. CHANGES NOT BUGS
%AA% New sort of declaration:
SPROUT_DEFAULTS <integer constant>;
Semantics: Whenever the procedure in which this occurs is
sprouted, the appropriate fields of the <integer
constant> will be used to specify the p-stack,
sp-stack, quantum, and priority of the sprouted process.
(but only if nothing is explicitly stated in the
options to the sprout for the particular field in question).
[GEN,HEL,NWORLD] RHT 8-31-73 OK RHT
%AB% Extension to capabilites of RELEASE
RELEASE now takes a second (defaultible) argument, the CLOSE
inhibit bits (See RELEAS description in UUO manual)
These are defaulted to zero when not specified so old programs
which did not specify them will work as before.
[FOO2,IOSER] JRL mid JULY 73
%AC% Remove global declaration option to error recovery.
Now the compiler doesn't ask whether one wants their
undeclared identifiers declared globally, it merely
declares them locally.
[GEN] KVL 9/27/73
%AD% Arrange for Alloc? (on reentry) to know about lower case.
[GOGOL] RHT 10/6/73
%AE% Arrange things so that you can pass a typed itemvar to
an untyped itemvar formal.
[STATS] RHT 10/18/73
%AF% Have separate routines for set and list membership booleans
[LEAP,LEPRUN] JRL 10/24/73
%AG% Implement Item Overlap capabilities for separately compiled procedures.
some other changes to leap initialization code to start
the one and two-word list spaces as very small amounts
[LEAP,LEPRUN,GEN] JRL 10/24/73
%AF% Made suspend an itemvar procedure, so that the effect
of x←suspend(myproc) is to allow this process to be restarted
via a co-routine call.
[FOO2] RHT 10/24/73
%AG% Arrange for caller(newly sprouted process) to be the sprouting
process. (i.e. initialize rsmr←daddy).
[NWORLD] RHT 10/28/73
%AH% fix things so that can type ree before starting a sail program.
