Hello Guile Hackers,

I've rebased the wip-elisp branch on top of commit 449f50dd84a081aea16ef678e32bf37abe429ff6 (git describe: v3.0.4-64-g33232cb5c4).  It's published here:

https://git.sr.ht/~g20r/guile

There are two additional failed tests which appear to be new tests added since the last work on the wip-elisp branch.  Also, ./configure requires the --disable-jit option as the build fails otherwise.  I have not yet investigated any of these issues.

I don't have much experience with Guile itself or the Guile codebase.  The next commit has a conflict I was not able to resolve: that's why it's not rebased all the way up to the tip of main.  My next tasks are to get the current Guile Emacs running on this version of Guile followed by fixing the JIT build failure, rebasing this to the tip of main and rebasing Guile Emacs on a more recent Emacs (I believe it is currently v24.something).

My question is if this is worthwhile work?  I don't have much time to spend on it but am happy to keep hacking away if there's still upstream interest.

I’m not a Guile core developer, but I think that this is awesome!

> My question is if this is worthwhile work?  I don't have much time to spend on it but am happy to keep hacking away if there's still upstream interest.

I think that there is upstream interest in Guile to improve the elisp
implementation, but I’m not sure about Emacs. They added improvements to
elisp that also provide better performance and they keep improving their
elisp implementation.

That said: Tools like fibers would be great to have in Emacs.

The workload to finish this is considerable, though: IIRC You’ll need to
solve some deeper problems that prevent Guile Emacs from using
byte-compiled files (that’s why it currently has a very high startup
time).

That said, there is a guile-emacs package in guix, and Guile 3.0.7 is
much faster than Guile 2.

(please someone correct me if I’m wrong!)

Best wishes,
Arne

I would personally think it would be good if we could get the wip-elisp
branch merged.  It would be good not to bitrot.  It seems more likely to
survive if it gets included in emacs proper.

Yes, to complete *guile-emacs*... that will be a lot of work.  But it
will be less work if guile's elisp branch is no longer this separate
thing that isn't kept up to date with the rest of guile.  More likely
that someone could finish and pick it up.

FWIW I had also rebased wip-elisp in 2020:

Hello,

Just my 2 cents as a drive-by watcher: I agree that having wip-elisp branch in guile tree would be nice to have, this way it's easier to find out where progress is being made for this endeavour, with potentially a checked out TODO or TASKS file to see if I can ever help (if only with testing, I know nothing of compilation so I don't think I'll be able to contribute to an .elc parser/evaluator/loader)

Regards,

Hello,

I have wip-elisp rebased all the way up to main as of a few days ago (e60469c8b6936575c079faaffa40a340e1d49f3c) plus two changes from Ricardo.  It's available here:

https://git.sr.ht/~g20r/guile

There is one test failure in "make check" on test-out-of-memory.  I haven't investigated it yet but I get the same failure on main.  If that's not an expected failure, it might be a problem with my environment.

There is also an emacs repo here:

https://git.sr.ht/~g20r/emacs

which uses the 3.0-based wip-elisp.  It builds and runs but segfaults easily.  I've started rebasing it on a more current emacs.  Those changes aren't published yet.

I haven't been able to get the guile-emacs package in guix working.  The build gets stuck at collecting/processing OKURI-NASI entries after a few hours.  For comparison, the 3.0-based guile-emacs builds in about 20 minutes on my machine.  If anyone has that running, it would be nice to have a comparison of the build/run speed.

I also had he same experience.  Guile Emacs would segfault very 
quickly.  That’s why I started a rebase on top of the nearest 
Emacs release, which is 25.2.  I had to abandon the rebase, 
because after about 45 commits it became too difficult for me to 
understand what exactly I had to do to resolve all these 
conflicts.  There are about 112 commits left to apply.

If you think you could benefit from the work I already did I could 
upload the full git repo as it is, mid-rebase and all.

I only got the 2.x-based Guile Emacs to build.  Haven’t tried with 
3.x because I had not dared rebase beyond 2.2.

This is awesome.

So, what's stopping us from merging this into guile main now before it
bitrots again? :)

I've pushed this as origin/wip-elisp-rebased.  I actually rebased it
again, making some naming adjustments for myself and a couple of
adjustments having talked to Robin.

If nobody objects, I'd like to merge this into main.  Maintainers, if
you have any objections, speak now or forever hold these commits!

I haven’t looked at the branch, but I think it’s great to see it live
and it’s great if it can be merged!

Some things to pay attention to before merging to ‘main’, since it
corresponds to the current 3.0 stable branch:

  • Make sure no backward incompatibilities are introduced in
    preexisting modules;

  • Make sure the ABI of libguile-3.0.so and that of public modules
    is unchanged, or is changed compatibly;

  • Make sure there are reasonable tests and doc so it can be maintained
    (and used!) going forward;

  • Robin has a copyright assignment on file, so we should be fine
    (whether we’ll keep doing copyright assignment for Guile is still
    unclear, but we can discuss that separately).

I think we should also wait for a green light from Andy.

Thanks Gregg, Christine, Robin, and everyone involved!

I just compiled the rebased version and will be playing with it little
bits over the next few days to make sure it's reasonably good.

There are, I think, two commits that could use review, but I am NOT the
right person to do this.

  4e96211eb666751b8666beb918bf3108aa1c725b intern arbitrary constants
  433fc448ddb018767906f8808203c9668c68cd83 multiple obarrays

>   • Make sure there are reasonable tests and doc so it can be maintained

Three tests across elisp-compiler.test,elisp-reader.test, elisp.test.
They seem to cover enough.

Cool.

Yes, I think so too.

Note that I will be without consistent internet over the next few days
so will be replying intermittently until the weekend, but I want to see
this happen.  Andy, I think you're the best person to review the
relevant commits above (and maybe the "guile-private-ref" and "allow
arbitrary constants in cps" commits look relevant too).

> Thanks Gregg, Christine, Robin, and everyone involved!

Yes, also Ricardo for doing the previous rebase!

This is awesome stuff!  Let's get it in!

Also I just verified, only one commit is failing, which is the out of
memory test, but that's failing on the main branch too.  So looks good
on that front.

Hi Christine,

Thanks for looking at this!  I just noticed that my email address as the committer on 1ba3d7854cac0524f80d3c6113da770505c9eda9 is incorrect.  Before merging, can you please change it to gregg@thesangsters.ca?

If you'd like to upload it, I think it would be a great reference.

I've taken the strategy of rebasing forwards along the master branch a few commits at a time.  So far I'm about a thousand commits ahead.  It's time consuming but the conflicts to resolve are smaller.  There are just more of them. :)

This is wonderful, thank you! (IIUC, Christine and Ricardo wrote
ChangeLog entries and did some rebasing, but I don't think it's been
fully rebased for some time, so this is a big step forward!)

N.B. The commit messages need minor rewording, so this will require
trivial changes before merging even if's otherwise perfect.

Christine noted some "questionable" compiler changes, where my changes
might conflict with Andy's, so this isn't surprising but it's useful to
have potential confirmation. The elisp changes were fairly simple, so it
shouldn't be too difficult to fix, if that is indeed the problem.

Rebasing onto a somewhat newer Emacs should be pretty straightforword,
and certainly worthwhile on its on. However, rebasing onto emacs master
is a major task that'll probably take several person-months of fairly
tedious work...

From my perspective, it certainly is! There is plenty of interest from
the Guile side AFAICT; the Emacs maintainers have been (understandably)
skeptical about the project in general, but if we can make it correct
*and* fast I think they'll be more interested, especially if Guile 3's
JIT outperforms emacs native-comp in practice.

Thanks,
Robin

To clarify, Guile-Emacs intentionally ditches the existing Emacs
bytecode compiler entirely (though it'd probably be possible to emulate
the bytecode interpreter to allow loading old '.elc' files). I haven't
followed Guile development closely enough to know whether these are
practical solutions, but my main ideas for improving startup speed were
to either add some form of AOT compilation to Guile, or to rely on
cached JIT-compiled code. IIRC Emacs now uses a portable dumper (rather
than the old system which dumped a running Emacs instance to an
executable), which seems analogous to the latter approach.

Well, *something* isn't ready to go:

scheme@(guile-user)> (+ 1 2)
$3 = 3
scheme@(guile-user)> ,L elisp
Happy hacking with Emacs Lisp!  To switch back, type `,L scheme'.
elisp@(guile-user)> (+ 1 2)
$4 = 3
elisp@(guile-user)> (cons 'foo '())
$25 = (foo)
elisp@(guile-user) [10]> 

Hoo, 10 levels deep!

It's not a good sign that it segfaults easily; Someone(TM) should figure
out the source of the crashes even if rebasing happens to fix them,
which I wouldn't necessarily count on. I'll try to do some debugging in
the next few days.

I can confirm that, it seems to get stuck at:

Reading file "/tmp/guix-build-[...]/[...]/leim/SKK-DIC/SKK-JISYO.L" ...
[...]
Collecting OKURI-NASI entries ...
[...]
collected 70% ...

even after running for quite a while:

guix build -c32 guile-emacs  5.29s user 0.47s system 0% cpu 28:02:53.21 total

I'm not sure what's going on here, as I've definitely installed the
guile-emacs package before (though not recently) and it doesn't use the
standard emacs and guile packages, for obvious reasons. I can probably
use guix time-machine to figure out what's happening. That build phase
was always excruciatingly slow, but not *that* slow.

and these, but concur that Andy is the best person to review them, and I
agree that Andy should approve the merge overall in any case.

Still reviewing the wip-elisp-rebased branch in my spare time; so far I
haven't found any noteworthy problems, not that I was expecting to :)

A minor point: IMHO the "(Best-ability ChangeLog annotation ...)" lines
aren't the ideal way to credit you, in terms of commit message
formatting. I'd prefer using git 'trailers' for in-commit credit, so
that it's obvious to both humans and git that it's commit metadata. I'm
not sure there's a conventional git trailer for this...something like
'ChangeLog-by:' would be probably be clear enough. But if you prefer the
current formatting and it works with Guile's ChangeLog generator, I
don't mind leaving it as-is (except perhaps "s/Best-ability //" after
I've reviewed everything :)) WDYT?

Thanks,
Robin

I'm fine changing it.  The original reason for the "best ability" notes
was that I was more or less making up text to make it compatible with
the changelog style based off of reading your code.  Honestly the
attribution part isn't the most important to me but the "ChangeLog-by is
an interesting idea".  Most importantly, I want to get it in! :)

I missed earlier in the thread that Gregg said that we should use
--disable-jit.  Once I did that it was fine.  So ignore this bit!

PS: An aside: wrong name in previous email; I never use gnus anymore,
apparently loading it accidentally the other day loaded a stale
~/.gnus.el and lead to me deadnaming myself with an old
  (setq user-full-name ...)
!!!  Watch out for stale elisp!

It wasn't this either!  It turns out it's that ,L elisp and geiser don't
seem to get along (yet).  The same thing happens with me in Guile's
stable release.

Also notably, --disable-jit doesn't seem to have been the culprit for me
then; I got it to compile fine without it, I think?

--disable-jit isn't needed.  My initial rebasing was done in the guile-for-guile-emacs guix environment and around the guile 2 to 3 transition it became necessary.  After switching to the guile-next environment, the jit version compiles fine.

Hello Guile Hackers,

I've rebased the wip-elisp branch on top of commit 449f50dd84a081aea16ef678e32bf37abe429ff6 (git describe: v3.0.4-64-g33232cb5c4).  It's published here:

https://git.sr.ht/~g20r/guile

There are two additional failed tests which appear to be new tests added since the last work on the wip-elisp branch.  Also, ./configure requires the --disable-jit option as the build fails otherwise.  I have not yet investigated any of these issues.

I don't have much experience with Guile itself or the Guile codebase.  The next commit has a conflict I was not able to resolve: that's why it's not rebased all the way up to the tip of main.  My next tasks are to get the current Guile Emacs running on this version of Guile followed by fixing the JIT build failure, rebasing this to the tip of main and rebasing Guile Emacs on a more recent Emacs (I believe it is currently v24.something).

My question is if this is worthwhile work?  I don't have much time to spend on it but am happy to keep hacking away if there's still upstream interest.
