# "When we build software, it's a good idea to have a reliable method
# for getting an executable from it. We want any two reconstructions
# starting from the same source to end up in the same result. That's
# just a basic intellectual premise."
# -- Christian Queinnec, in _Lisp In Small Pieces_, p. 313
# This software is part of the SBCL system. See the README file for
# more information.
# This software is derived from the CMU CL system, which was
# written at Carnegie Mellon University and released into the
# public domain. The software is in the public domain and is
# provided with absolutely no warranty. See the COPYING and CREDITS
# files for more information.
# The value of SBCL_XC_HOST should be a command to invoke the
# cross-compilation Lisp system in such a way that it reads commands
# from standard input, and terminates when it reaches end of file on
# standard input. Some suitable values are:
# "sbcl" to use an existing SBCL binary as a cross-compilation host
# "sbcl --sysinit /dev/null --userinit /dev/null"
# to use an existing SBCL binary as a cross-compilation host
# even though you have stuff in your initialization files
# which makes it behave in such a non-standard way that
# it keeps the build from working
# "sbcl --disable-debugger"
# to use an existing SBCL binary as a cross-compilation host
# and tell it to handle errors as best it can by itself
# (probably by dying with an error code) instead of waiting
# endlessly for a programmer to help it out with input
# on *DEBUG-IO*
# "lisp -batch" to use an existing CMU CL binary as a cross-compilation host
# "lisp -noinit -batch"
# to use an existing CMU CL binary as a cross-compilation host
# when you have weird things in your .cmucl-init file
# "openmcl --batch"
# to use an OpenMCL binary as a cross-compilation host
# "clisp"
# to use a CLISP binary as a cross-compilation host
# FIXME: Make a more sophisticated command line parser, probably
# accepting "sh --xc-host foolisp" instead of the
# the present "sh foolisp".
# FIXME: Tweak this script, and the rest of the system, to support
# a second bootstrapping pass in which the cross-compilation host is
# known to be SBCL itself, so that the cross-compiler can do some
# optimizations (especially specializable arrays) that it doesn't
# know how to implement how in a portable way. (Or maybe that wouldn't
# require a second pass, just testing at build-the-cross-compiler time
# whether the cross-compilation host returns suitable values from

# The classic form here was to use --userinit $DEVNULL --sysinit

# device names properly. We still need $DEVNULL to be NUL on Win32
# because it's used elsewhere (such as canonicalize-whitespace), so we
# need an alternate solution for the init file overrides. It turns
# out that version.lisp-expr has no side effects from evaluation, so
# we may as well use that.

# If you're cross-compiling, you should probably just walk through the
# script by hand doing the right thing on both the host
# and target machines.
# Enforce the source policy for no bogus whitespace
# The make-host-*.sh scripts are run on the cross-compilation host,
# and the make-target-*.sh scripts are run on the target machine. In
# ordinary compilation, we just do these phases consecutively on the
# same machine, but if you wanted to cross-compile from one machine
# which supports Common Lisp to another which does not (yet:-) support
# Common Lisp, you could do something like this:
# Create copies of the source tree on both the host and the target.
# Read the script carefully and emulate it by hand
# on both machines (e.g. creating "target"-named symlinks to
# identify the target architecture).
# On the host system:
# SBCL_XC_HOST=<whatever> sh
# Copy src/runtime/genesis/*.h from the host system to the target
# system.
# On the target system:
# sh
# Copy src/runtime/sbcl.nm and output/stuff-groveled-from-headers.lisp
# from the target system to the host system.
# On the host system:
# SBCL_XC_HOST=<whatever> sh
# Copy output/cold-sbcl.core from the host system to the target system.
# On the target system:
# sh
# sh
# Or, if you can set up the files somewhere shared (with NFS, AFS, or
# whatever) between the host machine and the target machine, the basic
# procedure above should still work, but you can skip the "copy" steps.
