Thanks, that is good to know, but it doesn’t help LilyPond in the immediate future because we have long branched our next stable release, which is supposed to happen next month, and we require Guile 2.2 for this release.

So we need to live with the fact that fixnums are ~32 bits at most because GMP expects long, unlike what is done in the wip-mingw branch with mini-GMP.


Best,
Jean

For what it is worth, I do have functional 64-bit Guile 3.0.x for
Windows at the link below, but that tree is still full of missteps and
experiments and needs to made into a cleaner patchset.  And I'm still
actively hacking there because I'm trying to a Guile that, once
installed, lives in a single directory like most Windows applications
so I can make an MSIX installer. So it is a bit of a mess, but,
I'm fairly confident the integers are fixed.

https://github.com/spk121/guile/commits/wip-mingw-bleh

That tree was based on, and will eventually contribute
back to

https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guile.git/log/?h=wip-mingw

Both of these trees require that you  --enable-mini-gmp 
--enable-jit=no and --disable-lto at configure time.

Mike Gran

Sorry, I forgot to reply to this. Yes, it likely should. On the other
hand, LilyPond has a lot of much more pressing security issues to care 
about…

I was able to have something at least partially working with Guile 
2.2, but if I could have a working Guile 3 on Windows, that would 
be even better!

From what I see, Guile 2.2 does still get fixes, but no larger changes.
See https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guile.git/log/?h=stable-2.2

You can find some possibly related bugs on debbugs:

Possibly fixnum-related, so maybe:

https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=42060

Maybe 32-bit <-> 64-bit related, so maybe:

https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=28920

Also, guile@2.2 is not developed anymore AFAICT.

I have also tried compiling with this command on my Mac to 
generate bytecode for the right architecture, but the result is 
the same:

guild compile test.scm -T x86_64-w64-mingw32 -o test.go

Thanks for the info. I have tried this, but it doesn't appear to 
be helping.

I did a few tests with lilypond, and here is what I found. I have 
a test.scm file containing:

(display (* 999)) (newline)
(display (* 999 999)) (newline)
(display (* 999 999 999)) (newline)

lilypond.exe -e '(load \"test.scm\")' test.ly
GNU LilyPond 2.23.10 (running Guile 2.2)
999
998001
997002999

That is fine. Now, if I try compiling test.scm to test.go, I get:

lilypond.exe -e '(use-modules (system base compile))(compile-file 
\"test.scm\" #:output-file \"test.go\")' test.ly
GNU LilyPond 2.23.10 (running Guile 2.2)
ice-9/boot-9.scm:752:25: In procedure dispatch-exception:
In procedure bytevector-u64-set!: Value out of range: -149659645

That doesn't work, so I compile test.scm to test.go with guile on 
my Mac. If I then try loading the generated test.go with lilypond, 
I get:

lilypond.exe -e '(load \"test.go\")' test.ly
GNU LilyPond 2.23.10 (running Guile 2.2)
999
998001
-76738825

Now, it is possible that the problem is that I am trying to run a 
.go file compiled on macOS on a Windows machine, and that the two 
platforms are different enough that the .go file can't be reused. 
And because I get that "Value out of range" error when compiling 
on Windows, I am probably stuck with .scm files instead of 
compiled .go files.

Regards,
Thomas Thiriez

For security, shouldn't this check the hash of the downloaded tarballls
and patches?

We had exactly the same problem at LilyPond, and this was the fix:

https://gitlab.com/lilypond/lilypond/-/blob/master/release/binaries/lib/dependencies.py#L721

Namely, you need to patch libguile/conv-integer.i.c and
conv-uinteger.i.c to replace "SIZEOF_TYPE < SIZEOF_SCM_T_BITS"
with "SIZEOF_TYPE < SIZEOF_LONG".

HTH,
Jean

Ah, that's good news. I have installed it with Cygwin, and it is 
working fine.

If I understand correctly, in order to use that version of 
libguile, I would have to redistribute the Cygwin libs with it, 
and the license would not work well with my proprietary 
application, am I right?

Regards,

There is a 64-bit port on the wip-mingw branch

    https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guile.git/log/?h=wip-mingw

but that is based on guile-3.0.8.

Yes, indeed.

It shouldn't be too much work to backport the fixes to guile-2.2.

Hi,

I am currently porting a macOS application to Windows, and need to 
have libguile working.

I can see GnuCash works with Guile. I could borrow their 
libguile.dll, but it is a 32-bit build, and I am making a 64-bit 
application. I tried building Guile 3, but had more success with 
Guile 2.2, so I will keep that version.

I have cross compiled it on my mac with mingw, and it kind of 
works. The only thing is that if I compile my .scm files to .go, 
then my fixnums are not automatically converted to big nums, and I 
get things like that:

(* 999 999 999) -> -76738825

My fix is to keep the .scm files, and avoid compiling to .go.

I believe this has something to do with the fact that, on that 
platform, we have:

sizeof(SCM)  == 8
sizeof(long) == 4

Is there something to do about that problem? Is there something I 
can do to have a working 64-bit Guile on Windows?

Thanks a lot for any help you could provide.

Regards,
Thomas Thiriez
