Annotation of gforth/BUGS, revision 1.52

1.13      anton       1: gforth.el: indentation does not work right on the first line of a
                      2: buffer. anton 27jan95
                      4: Conditional compilation continues after the file ends. This is allowed
                      5: by the standard (through an ambiguous condition), but the compiler
                      6: should at least produce a warning.  anton 27jan95
1.16      anton       7: 
1.23      anton       8: QUERY and TIB may behave differently than some may expect. TIB always
                      9: points to the current SOURCE, and QUERY puts its result there.  anton
                     10: 28nov96
1.24      anton      11: 
                     12: open-path-file expands "./" into the sourcefilename. It should either
                     13: not expand "./" or provide a mechanism that allows the application to
                     14: determine what "./" should expand to. anton 16jun98
1.29      anton      15: 
1.35      anton      16: gforth.el: Typing <ret> does not work when tabs separate words in a
                     17: line, and there is a \-comment at the end of the line.  anton 19feb00
1.33      anton      19: SEE does not work when the control structure is too complex (e.g.,
                     20: load and then do
                     21: SEE NEXT-PIECE). anton 5mar2000
1.34      anton      22: 
1.43      anton      23: Include cannot handle lines longer than 255 characters.  anton 4sep00
1.41      anton      24: 
1.43      anton      25: Errors happening during a LOAD do not report the offending word and
                     26: its context (e.g., the 64-byte line). anton 8sep00
1.46      anton      27: 
                     28: Our ecvt routine apparently does not work correctly for Infs and NaNs.
                     29: Try "ac_cv_func_ecvt=no ./configure; make" and then in Gforth: "1e 0e
                     30: f/ f. 0e 0e f/ f.". anton 25sep00
1.47      anton      32: Our ecvt routine does not round correctly, e.g., 0.25->0.3. Marcel
                     33: Hendrix 3oct00 <8rdcmd$j96$>
                     35: Newline has only LF (instead of CRLF) in DOS.  Bruce Hoyt 25oct2000
                     36: <39f7b14b$>
1.50      anton      37: 
                     38: SIGPIPE can make Gforth hard to stop (e.g., 
                     39: gforth -m 2M wordfreq.fs -e bye|head
                     40: anton 30may01
                     42: F. does not print trailing zeroes (e.g., "10 SET-PRECISION 125e f.")
                     43: anton 31may01
                     45: Block 0 does not work as it should: "0 block drop update save-buffers"
                     46: does not write to the blocks file.  "0 block 1024 dump" seems to give
                     47: the previous contents of the buffer.  Travis Bemann 10jul2001
                     48: <3b4b4f57$0$42883$>
                     50: When accessing a block beyond the end of the block file, the result is
                     51: filled with spaces (this is also documented).  However, when accessing
                     52: a previously unwritten block before the end of the block file, we will
                     53: get a block full of zeroes on most (all?) OSs.  This inconsistency
                     54: should be eliminated and the documentation fixed.  anton 14jul2001
1.51      anton      55: 
                     56: Path handling may have a bug:
                     57: strace $FORTH 'fpath= .|~+/gforth s" /home/anton/threading-variations/gforth/mach32b.fs" include gforth/kernel/main.fs bye'
                     58: tries to open gforth/kernel/gforth/kernel/aliases.fs, then
                     59: gforth/gforth/kernel/aliases.fs, but not gforth/kernel/aliases.fs.
