c++.beta - DMC 8.39.1 goes into deadlock or endless loop state

Hello,

in the included project there is a C-file which manages to freeze
the whole IDDE at the beginning of the compilation.

I have to use the task-manager to kill the IDDE.

Don't bother about the missing definitions, prototypes and header files.
Even if I include everything correctly this behaviour occurs. I just wanted
to create a tiny example.

I' working with Windows XP SP1 and the latest updates. The version of
scppn.exe is 8.39.1n.

There must be something in that file which confuses the compiler.

Regards

Does it also cause the command line compiler to fail?

Hello,

no, a batch file like this

c:\dm\bin\sc.exe -cpp -r -J -mn -C -WA -5 -a1 -c -gf -Ie:\prozess\iatinclu -
oerrtst.obj errtst.c

works and produces a correct object file.

Only the IDDE hangs, but I have to correct: the task manager isn't the only
way to leave the IDDDE.
It's also possible to "double-click" the title bar icon on the upper left to
shut the IDDE. But a mouse click
on the title bar turns all menus in the different windows of the IDDE into
bright white!

Hello,

I found an easy way to reproduce the failure:

Just put the next line into a C file, include it in a project a try
to make it via the IDDE:

BOOL  keypad_break;

If you replace BOOL by int or long it works. The same behaviour occurs, if
you replace
BOOL by WORD or LONG ( all are typedefs in my project BUT not included
here ).

Perhaps this might help ??!!

I think I know what the problem is. In the meantime, just go back to the
8.38 version of \dm\bin\scppnd.dll.
