I hope that everyone knows that they can run cmcat on
to get a proper order for the SML/NJ Lib files. You should be able to
compile the files in this order with MLton with a couple of caveats;
I drop the following two:
time-limit.sml -- needs to be rewritten to work with MLton,
but it isn't a heavily used structure
random.sml -- SML/NJ has a structure Pack32Big,
which doesn't conform to the Basis Library
specification (it ought to be PackReal32Big);
you could rename the structure to match the spec,
but then you'll break SML/NJ sources.
The following can be fixed in place:
A bunch of them use the deprecated Substring.all; use Substring.full
instead. Some have SML/NJ "where <structure>"-isms; ORD_KEY ones can
easily be expanded from "where Key = K" to "type Key.ord_key = K.ord_key"
You can follow a similar procedure on the other /smlnj-lib directories.
The HTML library has some or patterns that need to be expanded.
Unix/unix-env.sml has another Substring.all. And I think I got all the
others to build without modification.
