##### Creepy-Crawlies (Bugs)
« on: January 26, 2011, 09:51:49 pm »
This topic is meant for the discussion of bugs in BatLib. Currently, I am aware of three bugs (off the top of my head):
-The fonts don't seem to work in OS menus
-GetStats is not liking archived variables (it crashes when used on them)
-It crashes randomly, even on BASIC code.

Here is a screen shot of that last one. The first crash happens after 19 iterations, the second at 2346, the third at 827, and the fourth at 799.

I was tempted to change the topic title to Zerglings.

On-topic, I hope you don't have too much troubles fixing the bugs. Should we use this thread for bug reports if we find any when testing?

Hmmm does the same program crash at the same spot every time you run it?  If so, it might be an issue with the compiling?  If it crashes randomly, maybe an issue with interrupts?

Well, the only code that was being executed in the first ones was BASIC code. The last one included the sum( command which is all that should be affected by the parser. Also, it runs through the loop and seems to crash randomly. I had it run over 10 000 times before it crashed.

@DJ Omnimaga: Yeah, I think this should be the bug report place.

Haha, so the bug is fixed! I edited my last post in the "SpriteLib" topic with the updated version.
The problem was simple and it isn't the first time I made the mistake! I forgot to disable interrupts before using SP!

I tested it and it got over 200 000 iterations without crashing, so I think it is safe ♥

I think it is almost out of Beta mode now \(^_^)/

lol, poor SP.  * ZTrumpet wonders how it's doing after being abused like that.
If I'm wrong, please correct me!

Oh, SP will be fine... after a long recuperation and a few visits to psychiatrists...

Anywho, the new bug is with command 64 in the yet to be released version.
It is the program CopyProg, but when I run it, if the var to be created has a name >4 chars long, it throws a syntax error. It still creates the var as it should and if it is 4 chars or less, it has no problems.

I fixed another bug that was plaguing the dim(41 command (GetStats), yesterday. I couldn't find the problem until I was working on ReCode yesterday and it kept crashing whenever I tried storing to Ans. I opened the debugger in Wabbitemu et voila! The RAM area I was using to store the value of the stack pointer was getting corrupted whenever a new variable was created, apparently. Too bad nothing about that is mentioned in the system call documentation (that I read). I moved the location a few months ago into OP5 so that I could use OP6 is temporary RAM (it is very temporarily used) because I figured that since BatLib uses very few bcalls, OP5 wouldn't get affected... Oh well, now it is in a safe place in RAM that doesn't get affected by the OS.

Nice to hear more bugs are getting fixed, also I'M glad to see you back.

By the way any idea if you can fix that While End bug you mentionned in another topic?

Yep, I'm working on it at the moment. It actually isn't that difficult to fix, I just never thought about the possibility of the bug until after I made the code. I will just use a counter to find Then, Repeat, While, and other such statements that increments and have it decrement every time it hits an "End" so that when it reaches 0, that is the proper End to end at.

Ah ok, I hope it isn't too much hassle to fix X.x

Okay, that little problem was fixed, so now you can nest blocks that use End So pretty much the following is now valid:
Code: [Select]
While xxIf yyThen<<stuff>>EndEnd

I found a bug. If with dim(29) it draws out of bounds and you get an "undefined" error (This appears to only happen when y is too high). When you go to Y= you get e ton of garbage text and then a ram clear or a battery pull.

Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Okee dokey, that problem is fixed, now. Should I upload it now or wait until the next update and trust nobody uses rectangles too large?

Wait I would vote. I can just include bounds so the rect never goes offscreen.
