Recent changes to the Scheme Shell.
??/??/?? (version 0.4.5 presumably)
lock-region record now stores the *proc object* of the locking
process, not the integer pid. A bug in unlock-region was fixed,
and the documentation was fixed up.
Did we say we had signal handlers installed in the last release?
Now we do. Really. Installed & documented.
Hopefully, bdc will change this line to say the static heap
linker is documented.
Name-consistency change (non-backwards compatible):
open/nonblocking renamed to open/non-blocking,
which is the way it was always described in the manual.
-s<num> is now -sfd <num> -- more consistent with general switch
11/03/96 (version 0.4.4)
minor fixes for SunOS, Solaris, AIX, NeXTStep, 686 systems
minor static heap linker fixes
10/31/96 (version 0.4.3)
Static heap linker
Regular expression compilation
AWK pre-compiles regexp patterns outside of main loop
Solaris 2 on i386 support
AIX 4 support
HP-UX now uses dld for faster loading
a few small networking bug fixs
Bug fixes to I/O system.
New meta-arg second-line syntax
New -s<fdes> command line switch
Last few bits of Posix: isatty(), ttyname(), ctermid(), fcntl()
More efficient CLOEXEC handling for unrevealed file descriptors.
Starting up programs with the "-e <entry-point>" command-line
switch and with the (DUMP-SCSH-PROGRAM <file-name> <entry-point>)
are now equivalent in that both pass a list of command-line
arguments that includes the program name. The two start-up methods
were not the same in the previous release. N.B.: This is not
backwards-compatible with older releases' DUMP-SCSH-PROGRAM.
