c++ - Bug: sc.ini CFLAGS macro name length - Examples.txt
- Marshall <Marshall_member pathlink.com> May 13 2005
Description: If CFLAGS="-DMACRO_NAME=" is used in dm\bin\sc.ini; problems occur when the macro name length is 44-46, 50, or 51 characters. Nope, I didn't test all cases of 1-1024 character lengths. I just got, er, lucky with a macro name that caused me to look a tad further. Expected results: Using CFLAGS="-Dmacro=" should be the same as setting the macro from the command line. E.g. This command works fine: dmc -v2 -DMACRO_NAME_THATS_44_CHARACTERS_XXXXXXXXXXXXX= test.cpp See \dm\html\ctg\ctgLanguageImplementation.html#cpp_language, under the heading "Internal Limits" \dm\html\ctg\smake.html, under the heading "Defining Macros" The above 2 docs are not _exactly_ concerning dmc.exe; but I'll make reference to them none the less. How to replicate: 1. In sc.ini, set CFLAGS="-DMACRO_NAME_THATS_44_CHARACTERS_XXXXXXXXXXXXX=" 2. dmc -v2 test.cpp OS: XP w/ sp 2 Compiler: Digital Mars CD v 8.42, with cd843.zip Apologia if this turns out to be user misunderstanding.
