                Installation instructions for Gambit-C
                ======================================


This directory contains a release of the Gambit-C Scheme programming
system (see the file configure.ac for the version number). Gambit-C
includes a Scheme interpreter and a Scheme compiler which can be used
to build standalone executables. Because the compiler generates
portable C code it is fairly easy to port to any platform with a
decent C compiler.

1) Obtaining the Gambit source code
===================================

The Gambit source code can be obtained in different ways.

 - You can get the most recent version of the sources directly from
   the Gambit repository on github:

     % git clone https://github.com/feeley/gambit.git
     % cd gambit

   Note that the source code obtained may contain some stale .c files.
   Up to date files can be obtained after the system is built using
   the commands "make bootstrap; make bootclean; make". The last
   "make" uses the Gambit compiler to generate up to date .c files.

 - You can get a specific release, preferably the latest, in the form
   of a compressed tar ball (.tgz extension). The simplest is to use
   a browser to visit the Gambit wiki (http://gambit.iro.umontreal.ca)
   and click on "Development Sources" to download the compressed tar
   ball. Alternatively, use wget or curl from the command line,
   for example:

     % wget http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~gambit/download/gambit/v4.6/source/gambc-v4_6_6-devel.tgz
     % tar zxf gambc-v4_6_6-devel.tgz
     % mv gambc-v4_6_6-devel gambit
     % cd gambit

   Note that releases come in two flavors. The "developer" release,
   which has a "-devel" suffix in its name, contains the complete git
   history. It is a snapshot of the Gambit repository at a particular
   point in time. The "plain" release, without the "-devel" suffix in
   its name, does not contain the git history and is much more compact
   than the developer release.

Obtaining a version of the sources with the git history is required if
you intend to contribute changes to the Gambit repository. In that
case you will need a github account. Please send a message with your
github user name to gambit@iro.umontreal.ca to request write
permissions.


2) Quick-install instructions
=============================

On most Unix platforms the system can be easily built using the
following commands:

  % ./configure
  % make

If the source code was obtained by cloning the Gambit repository, the
following commands should then be entered to make sure that any stale
.c files obtained from the repository are updated:

  % make bootstrap
  % make bootclean
  % make

The system can then be tested and installed using the following
commands:

  % make check
  % sudo make install


3) Recommended "configure" script options
=========================================

The configure script, which was generated by the "autoconf" tool,
accepts many command line options that control various features.

It is ***highly*** recommended to use the --enable-single-host option
to improve the execution speed and compactness of the executables:

  % ./configure --enable-single-host

By using the --enable-single-host option, the speed of the Gambit-C
interpreter improves by roughly a factor of 2.

It is also ***highly*** recommended to use the --enable-c-opt option
to enable a higher C optimization level (-O2 instead of -O1):

  % ./configure --enable-single-host --enable-c-opt

By using the --enable-c-opt option, the speed of the Gambit-C
interpreter improves by roughly 10% (when compiled with gcc 4.2.1 on
Mac OS X). Note that some C compilers generate incorrect code when
compiling Gambit with --enable-c-opt, notably gcc 4.6.0 .

It is also ***highly*** recommended to use the GCC compiler to build
the system as the source code can take advantage of some GCC
extensions. Notably the use of GCC's computed gotos reduces the
execution time by roughly 35%.

When using some versions of the GCC compiler it is possible to use the
--enable-gcc-opts option to further improve the execution speed (by
about 3%) and compactness of the executables:

  % ./configure --enable-single-host --enable-c-opt --enable-gcc-opts

Note that this option might degrade the execution speed, so it is best
to build the system both ways and see which works best for your
version of GCC.

These options are not used by default because compilation is much
longer and requires more RAM. In fact some platforms may not have
enough resources to build the system this way. With
--enable-single-host the build takes roughly 500 megabytes and 2 to 4
minutes on a 2 GHz Intel Core Duo based MacBook Pro with the GCC 4.0.1
compiler instead of 300 megabytes and 1 to 2 minutes when
--enable-single-host is not used. With --enable-single-host and
--enable-gcc-opts the build takes roughly 2 gigabytes and over 10
minutes.

We recommend that users build Gambit-C with GCC 3.3 or later.
With Gambit configured with --enable-single-host and --enable-c-opt
GCC 3.3.2 will compile C code generated by the Gambit-C compiler
relatively quickly and will generally produce the fastest code.

The compile time varies greatly from one version of GCC to the next
(usually a more recent version is better, but not always). This is
because the algorithms used to implement the optimizations performed
by the compiler evolve and vary in computational complexity. Since
the C files are so large, the compile time is very sensitive to the
computational complexity of the optimization algorithms. See the
table at the end of this file for performance information for
different versions of GCC.

Finally, in order to support installing multiple versions of Gambit,
it is recommended to use these options:

  % ./configure --enable-single-host --enable-c-opt --enable-gcc-opts --enable-multiple-versions


4) Other options of the "configure" script
==========================================

The detailed list of options accepted by the "configure" script can be
obtained with:

  % ./configure --help

Most options are the same as for other autoconf generated configure
scripts. For example, you can select the central installation
directory with the option --prefix:

  % ./configure --prefix=/Users/feeley/my-gambit
  % make install
  % ~/my-gambit/bin/gsi
  Gambit v4.6.6
  ...

If the --prefix option is not used, the default is to install all
files in /usr/local/Gambit-C and its subdirectories, namely "bin",
"lib", "include", etc. The files that would normally go in these
subdirectories can be redirected to other directories using
the following configure options:

  --bindir=DIR executables (gsi, gsc, ...)
  --libdir=DIR libraries (libgambc.a, syntax-case.scm, ...)
  --includedir=DIR C header files (gambit.h, ...)
  --docdir=DIR documentation (gambit-c.pdf, gambit-c.html, ...)
  --infodir=DIR info documentation (gambit-c.info, ...)
  --datadir=DIR read-only architecture-independent data (gambit.el)

Note that the install target of the makefiles supports the DESTDIR
environment variable which allows staging an install to a specific
directory. The command:

  % make install DESTDIR=/Users/feeley/stage

will install all the files in /Users/feeley/stage as though it was the
root of the filesystem. Note that the use of DESTDIR is incompatible
with the combination of --enable-shared and
--enable-absolute-shared-libs options.

The configure options which are specific to the Gambit-C system are:

  --enable-single-host compile each Scheme module as a single C function
  --enable-c-opt[=level] use higher C optimization level
  --enable-gcc-opts use expensive GCC optimizations
  --enable-cplusplus compile using C++ compiler
  --enable-shared build the Scheme runtime system as a shared library
  --enable-debug build system so that it can be debugged
  --enable-profile build system so that it can be profiled
  --enable-coverage build system to accumulate coverage statistics
  --enable-feedback1 build system to accumulate trial run data
  --enable-feedback2 build system using trial run feedback
  --enable-inline-jumps generate inline code for jumps
  --enable-char-size=N Scheme character size in bytes (N = 1, 2 or 4)
  --enable-ansi-c link only with ANSI C libraries
  --enable-symlinks use symbolic links for installed files not in the
                          central installation directory
  --enable-interpreter-name=INTERP
                          choose name for Gambit interpreter (default = gsi)
  --enable-compiler-name=COMP
                          choose name for Gambit compiler (default = gsc)
  --enable-multiple-versions
                          multiple installed versions are supported
  --enable-absolute-shared-libs
                          shared libraries should be linked to using an
                          absolute path
  --enable-help-browser=BROWSER
                          use the specified browser to view documentation
                          requested through the help procedure or REPL
  --enable-type-checking
                          cause primitives to perform type checking
                          of their arguments
                          (requires: make bootstrap; make bootclean; make)
  --enable-auto-forcing
                          cause strict operations such as car, but not
                          cons, to automatically force their arguments
                          (requires: make bootstrap; make bootclean; make)

The option --enable-cplusplus should be used when applications
developped with the Gambit-C compiler are to be linked with code or
libraries written in C++. This will compile all of the Gambit-C
source code with a C++ compiler instead of a C compiler (this is
possible because the code generated by the Gambit-C compiler conforms
both to C and C++ and also Objective-C).

The option --enable-shared will build a shared library for the
Gambit-C runtime system. This is not supported on all platforms.

The options --enable-debug and --enable-profile are useful for
debugging the system.

The options --enable-feedback1 and --enable-feedback2 are useful for
building the system such that it is optimized for a particular use
case. The system should first be built with --enable-feedback1, then
one or more sample executions of the system should be performed, and
then finally the system should be built with --enable-feedback2. For
example:

  % ./configure --single-host --enable-feedback1
  % make
  % gsc/gsc -:=. my-favorite-program.scm
  % gsi/gsi -:=. my-favorite-program.o1
  % make mostlyclean
  % ./configure --single-host --enable-feedback2
  % make

The option --enable-symlinks is useful when the --bindir, --libdir,
... options are used. The files will actually be stored in the
central installation directory and symbolic links to those files will
be stored in the directories specified to --bindir, --libdir, ...

The options --enable-interpreter-name=INTERP and
--enable-compiler-name=COMP are useful when names different from the
defaults are needed (i.e. gsi and gsc respectively). These options
should be used only when absolutely necessary because users will
expect the defaults (from reading documentation, talking with users on
a different OS, etc). We strongly suggest that the names start with
gsi and gsc respectively, so that shell tab completion will help the
user discover the correct name.

The option --enable-multiple-versions allows multiple versions of
Gambit to be installed. When it is enabled the path of the central
installation directory (specified with --prefix) is automatically
extended with a subdirectory which is the version number, and a
"current" symbolic link points to the version subdirectory. All
symbolic links created as a result of the --enable-symlinks option
will refer to the files indirectly through the "current" symbolic
link. Switching to a different version of Gambit can be done by
simply redirecting the "current" symbolic link to another version
subdirectory.

When --enable-shared is used, the option --enable-absolute-shared-libs
will install executables (for gsi and gsc) which contain references to
the absolute paths of the libraries. This is necessary when multiple
versions of Gambit are installed so that each executable refers to the
appropriate Gambit shared library. This is the default behavior.
Note that this option is incompatible with the use of DESTDIR because
the executables can only be linked after the Gambit shared libraries
are installed in their final destination.

By default the configure script will use the GCC compiler to build the
system, if it is available. To override this choice or to use special
C compiler flags it is possible to set the environment variables CC,
CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, etc in the shell or on the configure command line.
Object file compilation options should go in CFLAGS, link options
should go in LDFLAGS, and options that apply to both can be next to
the name of the C compiler in CC. Here are some examples.

  - To use cc instead of gcc:

      % ./configure CC=cc

  - On a Sun Sparc workstation, the following will use the Sun
    Workshop C/C++ compiler and generate 64 bit executables (the heap
    can grow beyond 4 Gbytes):

      % ./configure CC="cc -xtarget=native -xarch=v9"

  - On a Compaq Alpha workstation, the following will use the Compaq
    Tru64 UNIX C/C++ compiler and generate executables that use 32 bit
    addressing instead of the normal 64 bit addressing (the heap and
    code will be in the lower 4 GBytes of the address space):

      % ./configure CC=cc CFLAGS="-w -D___USE_32_BIT_ADDR" LDFLAGS=-taso

  - By default, Gambit-C's runtime system does not restrict the size
    of the Scheme heap. A heap overflow will only be signalled when
    virtual memory is all used up, which can take a long time and
    cause lots of paging. This is not ideal for an educational
    environment where endless recursions are commonplace. The symbol
    ___FORCE_MAX_HEAP can be defined to put a limit on the size of the
    heap. To get a 5000 kilobyte limit (a reasonable amount for an
    educational environment) the system could be configured with:

      % ./configure CFLAGS="-D___FORCE_MAX_HEAP=5000"


5) Other "make" targets
=======================

Here is a description of the most useful "make" targets:

  % make bootstrap Builds the system and copies the gsc
                             executable to gsc-boot in the root directory.
                             The makefiles call up gsc-boot to
                             compile the Scheme source files
                             in the system if they are modified.

  % make mostlyclean Removes all the files that can be
                             regenerated using basic tools
                             (C compiler, sed, etc). The feedback
                             files are not removed.

  % make clean Removes all the files that are created
                             from a pristine distribution during
                             a "make" (object files, libraries,
                             gsi, gsc, etc).

  % make bootclean Like "make clean", but also removes the
                             C files that the gsc-boot compiler can
                             create from the Scheme source files. This
                             should only be used after a successful
                             "make bootstrap". The next "make" will
                             compile the whole system from scratch,
                             including compiling the Scheme sources
                             to C, using gsc-boot.

  % make realclean Like "make bootclean", but also removes all
                             the files which can be created using the
                             configure script (this includes the makefiles).

  % make check Checks that gsi and gsc pass some
                             basic tests by running a few Scheme
                             programs with gsi and gsc.

  % make examples Runs the programs in the "examples"
                             subdirectory.

  % make dist Creates a compressed tar file of
                             the system.

  % make dist-devel Creates a compressed tar file of
                             the system including all the source code
                             management files.

  % make doc Builds the documentation.

  % make rc-setup For initial setup of source code
                             management using git. This should
                             only be performed by the Gambit maintainers.

  % make new-revision Changes the version number of the system,
  % make new-minor by incrementing either the revision number,
  % make new-major the minor number or the major number.
                             This should only be performed by the
                             Gambit maintainers after thorough testing.

  % make release Builds source tarball and installers.
                             This is normally done after changing
                             the version number of the system.
                             Note: this make target is very platform
                             specific and is intended for the Gambit
                             maintainers.

  % make prebuilt Builds installers for Mac OS X and Windows.
                             This is normally done after changing

6) Building on Microsoft Windows
================================

There are several alternatives for building the system on Microsoft
Windows:

  a) Use the free MSYS/MinGW development environment (Minimalist GNU
     for Windows, www.mingw.org). Install MinGW and MSYS, then follow
     the instructions above (i.e. "./configure" followed by "make").

  b) Use the free Cygwin development environment
     (http://www.cygwin.com/). Install Cygwin, then follow the
     instructions above (i.e. "./configure" followed by "make").

  c) Use the Open Watcom compiler which can be obtained at no charge
     from http://openwatcom.mirrors.pair.com/. You must perform a
     full installation of the Open Watcom compiler in C:\WATCOM. From
     the shell, execute the batch file "misc\openwatcom.bat".

  d) Use the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition which can be
     obtained at no charge from Microsoft at this URL:
     http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/downloads/default.aspx .
     You must also install the Microsoft Platform SDK. From the
     shell, execute the batch file "misc\vcexpress.bat".

  e) Use Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003. You must unzip
     "misc\vstudio.zip" in the Gambit distribution's root directory.
     Then with Microsoft Visual Studio open "gambc.sln" and select
     "Build Solution" (Ctrl+Shift+B).


7) If you can't build the system on your platform
=================================================

The configure script tailors the build process to your platform.
Although it can adapt to a wide range of platforms there are cases
where it is not clever enough to do it completely automatically.

In this case you need to modify the configure script (the file
"configure.ac") and/or the source code of the Gambit-C system. Most
of the system dependent code is located in the files
"include/gambit.h", "lib/os*.h" and "lib/os*.c". Never modify the C
files generated by the Gambit-C compiler (these files usually have a
name that starts or ends with an underscore).

If you needed to modify any file to get Gambit-C to work properly on
your system, please send your modifications along with your machine/OS
specification to

  gambit@iro.umontreal.ca

so that it can be added to the next release.


8) Performance of GCC and CLANG when compiling Gambit
=====================================================

In order to investigate some issues with the use of the --enable-c-opt
C compiler option the system's performance was measured when built
with and without --enable-c-opt, and with --enable-multiple-hosts and
--enable-single-host, and with all 65 releases of gcc since version
2.95 and with clang 2.6 to 3.0 .

The machine used is a x86_64 linux machine with 48 GB of RAM, but in
order to compile the early releases of gcc and to be able to compare
all versions of gcc, 32 bit executables of gcc and Gambit were used
(so at most 4 GB of RAM is used by the processes). Gambit v4.6.6 was
used.

To measure the performance of the resulting system, the gsi
interpreter was executed on a moderately complex program
(tests/mix.scm). The elapsed time was measured for building Gambit
sequentially (i.e. a simple "make" after the appropriate "./configure
..."). Both the absolute time in seconds and the time relative to the
smallest time is indicated. The tables are given below.

The same experiment was done with clang version 2.6 to 3.1. Bugs were
encountered getting all these clang versions working on linux (due to
linking problems) so the prebuilt compilers were installed on a x86_64
Mac OS X machine. This Mac OS X machine is about 15% faster than the
linux machine used above with gcc.

Clang versions 2.7, 2.8 and 2.9 have bugs which prevent the Gambit
"make" to complete. The details are given below.

The build and execution times are given below. Note that the fastest
execution speed is obtained with --enable-single-host (regardless of
optimization level) and that clang 2.6 generates code that is about
40% faster than clang 3.0 and clang 3.1 .

As for the build time, clang is very roughly the same speed as gcc
when --enable-multiple-hosts is used. However, when
--enable-single-host is used the build time increases dramatically
(over 10 minutes for clang 2.6, and as much as 70 minutes for clang
3.0). Clang is probably using algorithms with a high algorithmic
complexity. Strangely, with clang 3.0 it takes less time to compile
with -O2 than with -O1. My guess is that clang 3.0 at -O2 must limit
the size of functions which are optimized (i.e. the expensive
optimizations are turned off when the functions are too big).
