- The array of boot-time symbols is fixed and independent of the features
that are compiled in. This is essential for cross-compilation and also
for sharing C code among different builds.
- SOCKET-MAKE-STREAM now accepts an :ELEMENT-TYPE argument.
- When --enable-rpath is used in combination with --with-gmp-prefix, then the
path of the GMP library is hardcoded into ECL. If the remaining libraries
(GC, libffi) are in a similar location this will make ECL work without
further flags, and without modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH or DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.
- The command line used by EXT:PROCESS-COMMAND-ARGS is now by default
the one stored in *COMMAND-ARGS*, and this may be "cleared" by the
- All arguments after the '--' command line option are stored in a global
- In the rules passed to ext:process-command-args, :stop now implies that all
remaining arguments including the current one are collected and passed to
the rule code. An example of use of this option
;; Collect all arguments _after_ the command line option --
("--" 1 (setf ext:*unprocessed-ecl-command-args* (rest 1)) :stop)
;; Collect all arguments including the first unknown one
("*DEFAULTS*" 1 (setf ext:*unprocessed-ecl-command-args* 1) :stop)
- ECL will always build, by default, with support for Unicode strings.
