Dear Camm and/or other GCL developers,
here is the summary of GCL bugs I've discovered while porting ASDF, so
far as I could retrieve them from our previous emails. Since GCL
doesn't seem to have an active bug tracking system, I've committed the
list to the ASDF TODO file instead.
** GCL is almost working again; but implementation bugs remain.
See November 2013 discussion on gcl-devel.
* Another GCL compiler bug:
when I changed the definition of getcwd from
(let ((*default-pathname-defaults* #p"")) (truename #p"")) to
(let ((*default-pathname-defaults* *nil-pathname*)) (truename
to guard against e.g. a logical-pathname context while loading asdf
and parsing #p"", calls to getcwd result in a segfault.
* An another bug: gcl refuses dynamic-extent declaration on functions.
uiop/stream.lisp: #-gcl (declare (dynamic-extent ,@(when
before `(#',beforef)) ,@(when after `(#',afterf))))
* (typep p 'logical-pathname) should be T if p has a logical-pathname host.
* apropos is case-sensitive and returns a same symbol many times
* compile-file fails to return proper secondary values in case of
* (pathname-directory #p"foo/") is incorrectly ("foo") instead of
* Missing: chdir, combine-fasls, and plenty more UIOP functions.
* Do whatever it takes to pass the asdf tests, add the above?
* Have (require "asdf") and (require "ASDF") both work.
* Trying to uiop:slurp-stream-forms from a stream with #+(or) :foo
(or read-file-forms from an file with same) results in an error,
rather than nil. This is probably a bug in #+ processing.
Unhappily, debian creates such a file in
* Tests that try to catch an error fail (but catching a warning succeeds),
which suggests brokenness in handler-bind and/or error.
I hope you're doing well. I understand you're otherwise out of that
scarcest of resources, time.
