run-prolognow prompts for a (Lisp) list of extra command line arguments, when invoked with a prefix argument, i.e. as C-U M-x run-prolog.
The change is largely backwards compatible with the following notable exceptions:
getenv()or similar functions. Instead,
SP_getenv()can be used for a similar effect.
process:process_create/[2,3]will no longer see SP_APP_DIR et al. in their inherited environment. Instead it is now possible to explicitly pass environment variables to the sub-process using the new
spio_t_simple_device_writeis now a
void const*instead of a plain
void *. This affects code that use
SP_create_stream()to create user-defined streams.
SP_get_list_n_codes()now use stricter input validation.
close/[1,2]) or flushed (
flush_output/1) if their contents is precious.
leaves/2option has been dropped, and the variable order must be the same on every path.
library(system)no longer depends on any foreign code so the
systemforeign resource is gone.
library(jasper): The SICStus (Java) working directory is now passed to Java (SICStus) when Java (SICStus) is started from SICStus (Java). Also, SICStus will not change the process's working directory when started from Java.
library(bdb), is now built using Berkeley DB 4.8.24.
