Dec 16, 2009

Announcing an update to the October 26, 2008 release of a
native PPC Modula-2 compiler for Amiga OS4. AgletM2PPC
v3.1 beta implements much of the ISO Modula-2 base standard.

The download can be found at OS4 Depot AgletM2PPC

Checkout the PDF Documentation file at my Aglet Web Site.

Any feedback welcome.

Tom Breeden


------------------------------------------------------------------
release Dec 16, 2009 changes from previous release October 26, 2008:

Compiler
> v3.1 Beta1 (16.12.2009)
> The compiler itself is now PPC native, and is significantly faster!
> The size limit on procedures is now probably large enough for any sane program.
> A bug which caused extremely excessive stack use was fixed. Now 40 or 50K should be enough for almost any compile.
> Some code generation errors were fixed.
> Fixed problem with Opaque pointers resolved within the IMPLEMENTATION module by imported pointer types.
> Added compiler warning: OpenArrayCopyWarn.
> SDK 53.8+ now using the GNU assembler v2.18 vs. 2.14 in earlier SDKs. This required that some instructions be output slightly differently.
> Certain "recording" versions of FP instructions are no longer generated, since Sam 440ep/flex does not support them.

(Pre)Linker
> Mod2Lnk recognizes a "-stack" switch and inserts the "$STACK:xxxx" cookie into executables.
> The .asm files no longer need be kept around. All dependency information is in the object file now. Asm files are written to T:
> Added the "-g" debug switch, which causes both exported and non-exported symbols to be put into the Elf symbol table so that SymbolsRTS can find them as well.

M2IDE
> Option "Make Icons?" added for the project file save.
> Fixed problem of GR on exit if M2IDE changed its current directory.
> Multiselect now supported for the "Misc Files" file requester.

Amiga Modules
> Added Definition files for about 25 more Amiga Libraries, and all supplied Amiga definition files (over 150 of them) were brought up to the v53.13 SDK.
> The TextEditor gadget is now working much better, as the Definition file now adjusts to a glitch in the SDK's .h file.

Aglet Modules
> System module SymbolsRTS was introduced for better debugging of exception locations.
> CLI program arguments and Workbench ToolTypes are transparently (almost) unified when the ArgsSupport module is used to read startup arguments.
> Many improvements in the (experimental) SimpleXXX modules (SimpleGUI, SimpleScreens, SimpleMenus, SimpleGraphics, etc).
> new modules: BigInt, for 155 bit integers; IconSupport, for writing out icons.
