While this console API improves handling on real hardware boards
(e.g. clipboard paste is much more reliable, as well as programmatic
communication), it vice-versa poses problems under QEMU, apparently
because it doesn't emulate UART interrupt handling faithfully. That
leads to inability to run the testsuite on QEMU at all. To work that
around, we have to suuport both old and new console routines, and use
the old ones under QEMU.
Printing "(null)" when a NULL string pointer is passed to %s is a debugging
feature and not a feature that's relied upon by the code. So it only needs
to be compiled in when debugging (such as assert) is enabled, and saves
roughy 30 bytes of code when disabled.
This patch also fixes this NULL check to not do the check if the precision
is specified as zero.
Header files that are considered internal to the py core and should not
normally be included directly are:
py/nlr.h - internal nlr configuration and declarations
py/bc0.h - contains bytecode macro definitions
py/runtime0.h - contains basic runtime enums
Instead, the top-level header files to include are one of:
py/obj.h - includes runtime0.h and defines everything to use the
py/runtime.h - includes mpstate.h and hence nlr.h, obj.h, runtime0.h,
and defines everything to use the general runtime support functions
Additional, specific headers (eg py/objlist.h) can be included if needed.
Qstr values fit in 16-bits (and this fact is used elsewhere in the code) so
no need to use more than that for the large lookup tables. The compiler
will anyway give a warning if the qstr values don't fit in 16 bits. Saves
around 80 bytes of code space for Thumb2 archs.
Building mpy-cross: this patch adds .exe to the PROG name when building
executables for host (eg mpy-cross) on Windows. make clean now removes
mpy-cross.exe under Windows.
Building MicroPython: this patch sets MPY_CROSS to mpy-cross.exe or
mpy-cross so they can coexist and use cygwin or WSL without rebuilding
mpy-cross. The dependency in the mpy rule now uses mpy-cross.exe for
Windows and mpy-cross for Linux.
CPython docs explicitly state that the RHS of a set/frozenset binary op
must be a set to prevent user errors. It also preserves commutativity of
the ops, eg: "abc" & set() is a TypeError, and so should be set() & "abc".
This change actually decreases unix (x64) code by 160 bytes; it increases
stm32 by 4 bytes and esp8266 by 28 bytes (but previous patch already
introduced a much large saving).
A lot of set's methods (the mutable ones) are not allowed to operate on a
frozenset, and giving frozenset a separate locals dict with only the
methods that it supports allows to simplify the logic that verifies if
args are a set or a frozenset. Even though the new frozenset locals dict
is relatively large (88 bytes on 32-bit archs) there is a much bigger
saving coming from the removal of a const string for an error message,
along with the removal of some checks for set or frozenset type.
Changes in code size due to this patch are (for ports that changed at all):
unix x64: -56
unix nanbox: -304
Apart from the reduced code, frozenset now has better tab-completion
because it only lists the valid methods. And the error message for
accessing an invalid method is now more detailed (it includes the
method name that wasn't found).
This returns a complex number, following CPython behaviour. For ports that
don't have complex numbers enabled this will raise a ValueError which gives
a fail-safe for scripts that were written assuming complex numbers exist.
This adds a new configuration option to print runtime warnings and errors to
stderr. On Unix, CPython prints warnings and unhandled exceptions to stderr,
so the unix port here is configured to use this option.
The unix port already printed unhandled exceptions on the main thread to
stderr. This patch fixes unhandled exceptions on other threads and warnings
(issue #2838) not printing on stderr.
Additionally, a couple tests needed to be fixed to handle this new behavior.
This is done by also capturing stderr when running tests.
It removes the need for a wrapper Python function to dispatch to the
framebuf method which makes each function call a bit faster, roughly 2.5x.
This patch also adds the rest of the framebuf methods to the SSD class.
The timer prescaler is buffered by default, and this patch enables ARPE
which buffers the auto-reload register. With both of these registers
buffered it's now possible to smoothly change the timer's frequency and
have a smoothly varying PWM output.
Current users of fixed vstr buffers (building file paths) assume that there
is no overflow and do not check for overflow after building the vstr. This
has the potential to lead to NULL pointer dereferences
(when vstr_null_terminated_str returns NULL because it can't allocate RAM
for the terminating byte) and stat'ing and loading invalid path names (due
to the path being truncated). The safest and simplest thing to do in these
cases is just raise an exception if a write goes beyond the end of a fixed
vstr buffer, which is what this patch does. It also simplifies the vstr
