    1: You can find more recent bug reports at
    2: http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=gforth
    3: 
    4: gforth.el: indentation does not work right on the first line of a
    5: buffer. anton 27jan95
    6: 
    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
   10: 
   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
   13: 28nov96
   14: 
   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
   18: 
   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
   21: 
   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
   25: 
   26: Include cannot handle lines longer than 255 characters.  anton 4sep00
   27: 
   28: Errors happening during a LOAD do not report the offending word and
   29: its context (e.g., the 64-byte line). anton 8sep00
   30: 
   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
   34: 
   35: Our ecvt routine does not round correctly, e.g., 0.25->0.3. Marcel
   36: Hendrix 3oct00 <8rdcmd$j96$1@news.IAEhv.nl>
   37: 
   38: Newline has only LF (instead of CRLF) in DOS.  Bruce Hoyt 25oct2000
   39: <39f7b14b$2@clear.net.nz>
   40: 
   41: F. does not print trailing zeroes (e.g., "10 SET-PRECISION 125e f.")
   42: anton 31may01
   43: 
   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
   47: <3b4b4f57$0$42883$272ea4a1@news.execpc.com>
   48: 
   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
   54: 
   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.
   59: anton 3 sep 2001
   60: 
   61: gforth-native does not deal correctly with inline arguments in static
   62: superinstructions: when using lit_lit, the wrong literals are put into
   63: the native code (probably due to wrong assumptions about argument
   64: offsets). 6 nov 2003
   65: 
   66: finish-code changes the stack for gforth-fast with --enable-force-reg
   67: (probably for gforth-native too).  Apparently ecx (spTOS) is neither
   68: saved by engine, nor by finish_code().
   69: 
   70: Wrong decompilation:
   71: create foo
   72: 5 constant bar
   73: : xxx foo bar ;
   74: simple-see xxx
   75: 16 nov 2005
   76: 
   77: Debian's gforth's etags.fs crashes (probably due to path problems)
   78: on b3:
   79: gforth etags.fs
