1: You can find more recent bug reports at
4: gforth.el: indentation does not work right on the first line of a
5: buffer. anton 27jan95
7: Conditional compilation continues after the file ends. This is allowed
8: by the standard (through an ambiguous condition), but the compiler
9: should at least produce a warning. anton 27jan95
11: QUERY and TIB may behave differently than some may expect. TIB always
12: points to the current SOURCE, and QUERY puts its result there. anton
15: open-path-file expands "./" into the sourcefilename. It should either
16: not expand "./" or provide a mechanism that allows the application to
17: determine what "./" should expand to. anton 16jun98
19: gforth.el: Typing <ret> does not work when tabs separate words in a
20: line, and there is a \-comment at the end of the line. anton 19feb00
22: SEE does not work when the control structure is too complex (e.g.,
23: load http://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/forth/pentomino.fs and then do
24: SEE NEXT-PIECE). anton 5mar2000
26: Include cannot handle lines longer than 255 characters. anton 4sep00
28: Errors happening during a LOAD do not report the offending word and
29: its context (e.g., the 64-byte line). anton 8sep00
31: Our ecvt routine apparently does not work correctly for Infs and NaNs.
32: Try "ac_cv_func_ecvt=no ./configure; make" and then in Gforth: "1e 0e
33: f/ f. 0e 0e f/ f.". anton 25sep00
35: Our ecvt routine does not round correctly, e.g., 0.25->0.3. Marcel
36: Hendrix 3oct00 <8rdcmd$j96$1@news.IAEhv.nl>
38: Newline has only LF (instead of CRLF) in DOS. Bruce Hoyt 25oct2000
41: F. does not print trailing zeroes (e.g., "10 SET-PRECISION 125e f.")
42: anton 31may01
44: Block 0 does not work as it should: "0 block drop update save-buffers"
45: does not write to the blocks file. "0 block 1024 dump" seems to give
46: the previous contents of the buffer. Travis Bemann 10jul2001
49: When accessing a block beyond the end of the block file, the result is
50: filled with spaces (this is also documented). However, when accessing
51: a previously unwritten block before the end of the block file, we will
52: get a block full of zeroes on most (all?) OSs. This inconsistency
53: should be eliminated and the documentation fixed. anton 14jul2001
55: Path handling may have a bug:
56: strace $FORTH 'fpath= .|~+/gforth s" /home/anton/threading-variations/gforth/mach32b.fs" include gforth/kernel/main.fs bye'
57: tries to open gforth/kernel/gforth/kernel/aliases.fs, then
58: gforth/gforth/kernel/aliases.fs, but not gforth/kernel/aliases.fs.
