More patches for R7B-0
The numbers beginning with "OTP-" are internal tracking numbers that
we use that are not very useful to you. But keeping them makes it
more easy for us to identify the changes we have made patches for.
You use something like
% cd otp_src_R7B-0/
% zcat ../patches/patch-R7B-0-*.diff.gz | patch -p1
to patch your source. Let me know if there are any problems adding the
The description of the previous patches and the list below is found in
-------- Updated the README file how to install the documentation.
-------- Terminate configure if 'ar' command is not found.
OTP-3785 For newer versions of gcc the value of GCCLIB_PATH is set
incorrectly. In fact, it is not needed and now removed.
OTP-3748 The compiler would sometimes reorder bit syntax clauses
causing them to be execute in the wrong order.
This has been corrected.
OTP-3772 Changed back the return values from erl_send() and
erl_reg_send() to 1 (as they used to be).
OTP-3721 An error in the constructor for OtpNode has been fixed.
OTP-3763 inet_res:nslookup/4 has been made backwards compatible.
OTP-3769 When making rpc:call to a function that in its
turn spawn_linked some child process, the
rpc server killed the child process when the
called function returned. This is now corrected.
OTP-3584 transform_table now supports indexes, but the dirty_index_*
operations may exit when the index is rebuilt. The memory
usage has been improved for set and ordered_set tables.
OTP-3762 Same as OTP-3584 above.
OTP-3761 New iteration functions has been added i.e. foldl/3 foldr/3
foldl/4 foldr/4, together with dirty_last/1 and
dirty_prev/2 for ordered_set tables.
OTP-3767 A printout has been added in release_handler
when install_release fails.
OTP-3766 When doing a rpc:call to a remote node calling a
function whos process gets killed by another process
e.g. due to a link, the process calling rpc:call
hanged. This bug is now fixed.
