IDE Fix Pack 6.3.2 for XE2 only

By | June 18, 2018

There was an off-by-one bug in the Win64 Compiler Speed Pack for XE2 since the release of version 6.0. This caused the XE2 dcc64 compiler to generate defective code that caused crashes in the created executable file.

The off-by-one bug only affected XE2. When I began writing the patches I used XE4 and all Win64 compilers worked almost out of the box with the same patches. But XE2 is different as it was the first Win64 compiler. One of the enumerations got extended by one element in XE3 and the patch didn’t have checks for that case. So I never noticed that my enumeration type had an additional element in the middle if it was compiled for the XE2 compiler. That change offsets all following elements by one an caused bugs in the patches.

There is now a special release 6.3.2 for XE2 that addresses this IDE Fix Pack bug.

IDE Fix Pack 6.3 released

By | June 17, 2018

The new IDE Fix Pack 6.3 adds some IDE fixes and makes DFM reading a little bit faster due to the usage of buffers on the stack instead of the TBytes heap allocations with unnecessary FillChar calls that were introduced with XE3.

The compiler option extension -x-fpr also got a new feature. If a function has stack variables that exceed 4096 bytes, the function prolog that is generated will be up to 3 times faster than the original compiler generated code (RSP-19826).

Furthermore the compiler option extensions are now combined into -x-On options what makes it easier to specify the options because you don’t need to remember all the option names anymore.

-x-O1     Enable options -x-fvs   -x-fpr
-x-O2     Enable options -x-fvs   -x-fpr -x-orc
-x-O3     Enable options -x-fvs=2 -x-fpr -x-orc
-x-Ox     Enable ABI changing optimizations: -x-fvs=2 -x-fpr -x-orc=2 -x-ff

All options are listed in the Readme.txt and can be specified under Project Options/Delphi Compiler/Compiling/Other options/Additional options to pass to the compiler. (Screenshot)

Changelog

  • Added: Patch to remove IDE flickering when WM_SETTINGCHANGE is broadcasted
  • Added: Fix for RSP-20700: Tooltip Help Insight is blinking if Structure View is scrolled
  • Added: Undo XE3+ TFiler/TReader/TParser/TStream TBytes usage, replace SetLength with SetLengthUninit for special cases
  • Added: -x-fpr generates 3 times faster stack memory page probing code (RSP-19826)
  • Added: Options -x-O1, -x-O2, -x-O3, -x-Ox that enable other optimization options

IDE Fix Pack 6.2

By | January 25, 2018

Delphi 10.2 Tokyo changed how the files for units that are explicitly specified in the project file (dpr/dpk) are found. The IDE Fix Pack’s directory file search cache still made assumptions that were correct in Delphi 2009-10.1 Seattle but aren’t in Tokyo. This could result in an “program or unit xxx recursively uses itself” error messages if you had a relative path in the filename that is specified in the project file.

This release also adds another option to the compiler codegen optimizations. The new -x-orc / -x-orc=n option allows you to eliminate temporary record copies for functions like “begin Result := FRedirect.GetRecord; end;”. This optimization allows the compiler to skip the try/finally block with InitializeRecord/CopyRecord/FinalizeRecord calls for the temporary record variable that is then copied to the actual result record.

  • Fixed: Directory search cache failed if project units had “..\” in it (Delphi 10.2 only)
  • Fixed: Some VirtualProtect calls specified nil as last argument what Windows 10 1709 doesn’t like if a debugger is attached.
  • Added: Option -x-orc and -x-orc=n to remove temporary record variables for function results (n=1: only if the assignment is the last statement, n=2 for all)

Technical the same but different generated code

By | October 31, 2017

While debugging the String4D code to hunt down a bug in the CompilerSpeedPack, I saw a lot of CopyRecord/FinalizeRecord calls with a try/finally that the compiler generated.

If you have a record with managed fields (string, interface, …) and use it as a function return type the Delphi compiler will change the function into a procedure with an extra var-parameter. So you would think that the compiler treats the result-parameter like a normal var-parameter, but that isn’t the case. The compiler will generate code that guarantees that the result record isn’t changed if the called function throws an exception. For this is adds a temporary record that is used for the function result and then copies it to the target record.

type
  TMyRec = record
    Value: string;
  end;

function InternalGetRec: TMyRec;
begin
  Result.Value := 'Hello';
end;

function GetRec: TMyRec;
begin
  Result := InternalGetRec;
end;

procedure Test;
var
  R: TMyRec;
begin
  R := GetRec;
end;

The compiler rewrites the “Test” function to:

procedure Test;
var
  R, TempR: TMyRec;
begin
  try
    GetRec(TempR);
    CopyRecord(TempR, R, TypeInfo(TMyRec));
  finally
    FinalizeArray([TempR, R], TypeInfo(TMyRec));
  end;
end;

The same happens if you assign another function’s record result value to your own record result value. The compiler rewrites the “GetRec” function’s code to:

function GetRec: TMyRec;
var
  TempResult: TMyRec;
begin
  try
    InternalGetRec(TempResult);
    CopyRecord(TempResult, Result, TypeInfo(TMyRec));
  finally
    FinalizeRecord(TempRecord, TypeInfo(TMyRec));
  end;
end;

Because the compiler assumes that you may want to use “Result” in the function after the call, it has to guarantee that it is unchanged if an exception is thrown. But if it is the last statement in the function and not secured by an explicit try/finally/except where “Result” is used again, an optimization could be to omit the temporary record, making the code a lot faster.

IDE Fix Pack 6.1 released

By | October 29, 2017

With the release of IDE Fix Pack 6.1, the Compiler Speed Pack not only makes the compiler compile faster but it can now also change the generated code, something that IDE Fix Pack has never done before. For this, new command line compiler options are introduced. They all start with “-x” (eXtension) followed by the Compiler Speed Pack option (-x-ff -x-fdi -x-fvs -x-fpr) and if you want to use them from the command line compiler you need to use fastdcc32/fastdcc64.
You can specify these options in the “Project/Options…” dialog under “Delphi Compiler/Compiling/Additional options to pass to the compiler”. You may need to rebuild the project to see an effect as only then the compiler will generate new code.

AdditionalOptions

Windows 10 Creators Update 1703 caused issues with all Delphi programs, libraries and packages because it changed how Windows loads imported DLLs in such a way that it causes performance issues and can crash the debugger. Delphi 10.2 Tokyo Update 2 fixed this by not producing multiple dll import sections for one DLL anymore. IDE Fix Pack 6.1 implements that “feature” for all previous Delphi versions (2009-10.1 Berlin) and extends it to not only eliminate duplicate dll imports but also duplicate delay dll imports.
This patch changes the generated binary, the Win32 and Win64 compiler outputs, and it can be disabled by using the new “-x-fdi-“ option.

The next patch that changes the Win32 code generator is the “fast floating point” option that C++Builder users may know from the “bcc32.exe -ff” option. It removes all “fwait” instructions that the compiler usually emits after floating point operations. Removing “fwait” may cause FPU exceptions to be thrown at the wrong source code line.
This option is disabled by default and can be enabled by specifying the new option “-x-ff”.

When calling virtual methods through an interface the Win32 Delphi compiler has to route that call through a helper function that translates the interface reference into an object reference and calls the virtual method. For this helper the compiler uses the XCHG instruction that has an implicit CPU LOCK.
The new “-x-fvs” / “-x-fvs=1” option replaces the XCHG instruction with an alternative code and if the called virtual function doesn’t use the ECX register for the 3rd parameter, it generates a direct jump into the virtual method.
The “-x-fvs=2” option replaces the XCHG and uses ECX if available but if ECX is not available it keeps the CPU’s “return stack cache” valid by replacing the RET with a JMP instructions. For this it uses stack memory below ESP.

For some functions that meet special conditions the Win32 compiler emits stack frame code that fills the stack with zeros to clear variables with managed types. If there are too many of those the compiler uses a loop and the XCHG instruction to restore the ECX register that is used as the loop counter.
The option “-x-fpr” replaces the XCHG with an alternative code.

 

Changelog:

  • Added: Option -x-ff to enable “fast floating point” (like Borland C++’s -ff command line option)
  • Added: Option -x-fvs and -x-fvs=n to enable fast interface virtual stub (n=1: replace XCHG, n=2: keep the CPU’s return stack buffer in order)
  • Added: Option -x-fpr to remove XCHG from the function prolog code.
  • Added: DLL import table section folding and duplicate name/ordinal elimination, also for delay dll imports
  • Changed: Split “Compiler64.X86″ patch into multiple smaller patches and removed the “Compiler64.X86” patch name
  • Changed: EditorFocusFix now skips the SetActiveWindow call if the mainform (undocked) is not the active window

IDE Fix Pack 6.0 released – dcc64 and 10.2 Update 1 support

By | September 28, 2017

The new IDE Fix Pack version 6.0 is available. It supports Delphi 10.2 RTM and 10.2 Update 1. And after over a year of being in BETA testing without any bug reports, I also included all the Win64 compiler performance optimizations. Thus the jump to version 6.0 can finally be done as they make the Win64 compiler up to 50% faster.

Changelog:

  • Added: Win64 compile speed optimizations
  • Added: Delphi 10.2 Update 1 support
  • Added: Editor Block Completion UTF8 fix (Delphi 2009 only)

Debugger Callstack Resolver released

By | August 15, 2017

Debugger Callstack Resolver is a Delphi IDE plugin that I wrote in 2011 to make the IDE’s CPU View more readable. It colors different instructions, resolves absolute and memory address jump and call targets and shows their function name if available. It also uses the *.jdbg to show more information (the dcc32 compiler’s jdbg files are for the debug build of the compiler and haven’t match the deployed version since jdbg files exist)

This plugin supports Delphi 2009 – 10.1 Berlin.

IDE Fix Pack 5.96, DDevExtensions, DFMCheck for Delphi 10.2

By | April 9, 2017

Due to many requests, I took the time to update my tools (IDE Fix Pack, DDevExtensions, DFMCheck) for the newest Delphi version. Delphi 10.2 RTM will be the last version that all my tools support. I won’t be able to recompiled them for any 10.2 Update because my update subscription has expired and I didn’t (intentionally) renew it. Coincidentally I didn’t get a renewal message this time either.

This doesn’t mean that I won’t release newer versions of my tools, but I can’t support newer Delphi versions or 10.2 updates if the tools need to be recompiled. When I find some new possible optimizations or fixes for annoying bugs and time to work on them, Delphi 2009-10.2 RTM users will be able to use them.

Changelog:

  • Fixed: Disable DynArraySetLength patch if 10.1 Berlin Update 2 is detected.
  • Fixed: “clang template debug symbol bloat” disabled for 10 Seattle and newer.
  • Added: IDE minimize doesn’t shrink main window to width and height zero.
  • Added: RAD Studio 10.2 support
