      py/parse: Optimise away parse node that's just parenthesis around expr. · 93b37262
      Damien George authored
      Before this patch, (x+y)*z would be parsed to a tree that contained a
      redundant identity parse node corresponding to the parenthesis.  With
      this patch such nodes are optimised away, which reduces memory
      requirements for expressions with parenthesis, and simplifies the
      compiler because it doesn't need to handle this identity case.
      A parenthesis parse node is still needed for tuples.

      MICROPY_ENABLE_COMPILER can be used to enable/disable the entire compiler,
      which is useful when only loading of pre-compiled bytecode is supported.
      It is enabled by default.
      MICROPY_PY_BUILTINS_EVAL_EXEC controls support of eval and exec builtin
      functions.  By default they are only included if MICROPY_ENABLE_COMPILER
      is enabled.
      Disabling both options saves about 40k of code size on 32-bit x86.

      unix-cpy: Remove unix-cpy. It's no longer needed. · 65dc960e
      Damien George authored
      unix-cpy was originally written to get semantic equivalent with CPython
      without writing functional tests.  When writing the initial
      implementation of uPy it was a long way between lexer and functional
      tests, so the half-way test was to make sure that the bytecode was
      correct.  The idea was that if the uPy bytecode matched CPython 1-1 then
      uPy would be proper Python if the bytecodes acted correctly.  And having
      matching bytecode meant that it was less likely to miss some deep
      subtlety in the Python semantics that would require an architectural
      change later on.
      But that is all history and it no longer makes sense to retain the
      ability to output CPython bytecode, because:
      1. It outputs CPython 3.3 compatible bytecode.  CPython's bytecode
      changes from version to version, and seems to have changed quite a bit
      in 3.5.  There's no point in changing the bytecode output to match
      CPython anymore.
      2. uPy and CPy do different optimisations to the bytecode which makes it
      harder to match.
      3. The bytecode tests are not run.  They were never part of Travis and
      are not run locally anymore.
      4. The EMIT_CPYTHON option needs a lot of extra source code which adds
      heaps of noise, especially in compile.c.
      5. Now that there is an extensive test suite (which tests functionality)
      there is no need to match the bytecode.  Some very subtle behaviour is
      tested with the test suite and passing these tests is a much better
      way to stay Python-language compliant, rather than trying to match
      CPy bytecode.

      py: Improve allocation policy of qstr data. · ade9a052
      Damien George authored
      Previous to this patch all interned strings lived in their own malloc'd
      chunk.  On average this wastes N/2 bytes per interned string, where N is
      the number-of-bytes for a quanta of the memory allocator (16 bytes on 32
      bit archs).
      With this patch interned strings are concatenated into the same malloc'd
      chunk when possible.  Such chunks are enlarged inplace when possible,
      and shrunk to fit when a new chunk is needed.
      RAM savings with this patch are highly varied, but should always show an
      improvement (unless only 3 or 4 strings are interned).  New version
      typically uses about 70% of previous memory for the qstr data, and can
      lead to savings of around 10% of total memory footprint of a running
      Costs about 120 bytes code size on Thumb2 archs (depends on how many
      calls to gc_realloc are made).

      py: Protect mp_parse and mp_compile with nlr push/pop block. · 0bfc7638
      Damien George authored
      To enable parsing constants more efficiently, mp_parse should be allowed
      to raise an exception, and mp_compile can already raise a MemoryError.
      So these functions need to be protected by an nlr push/pop block.
      This patch adds that feature in all places.  This allows to simplify how
      mp_parse and mp_compile are called: they now raise an exception if they
      have an error and so explicit checking is not needed anymore.

      py: Never intern data of large string/bytes object; add relevant tests. · 4c81ba80
      Damien George authored
      Previously to this patch all constant string/bytes objects were
      interned by the compiler, and this lead to crashes when the qstr was too
      long (noticeable now that qstr length storage defaults to 1 byte).
      With this patch, long string/bytes objects are never interned, and are
      referenced directly as constant objects within generated code using

      py: Optimise lexer by exposing lexer type. · a4c52c5a
      Damien George authored
      mp_lexer_t type is exposed, mp_token_t type is removed, and simple lexer
      functions (like checking current token kind) are now inlined.
      This saves 784 bytes ROM on 32-bit unix, 348 bytes on stmhal, and 460
      bytes on bare-arm.  It also saves a tiny bit of RAM since mp_lexer_t
      is a bit smaller.  Also will run a bit more efficiently.

      py: Free non-interned strings in the parser when not needed. · 52b5d76a
      Damien George authored
      mp_parse_node_free now frees the memory associated with non-interned
      strings.  And the parser calls mp_parse_node_free when discarding a
      non-used node (such as a doc string).
      Also, the compiler now frees the parse tree explicitly just before it
      exits (as opposed to relying on the caller to do this).
      Addresses issue #708 as best we can.
