Annotation of gforth/BUGS, revision 1.56

1.53      anton       1: You can find more recent bug reports at
1.13      anton       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
1.16      anton      10: 
1.23      anton      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
1.24      anton      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
1.29      anton      18: 
1.35      anton      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
1.33      anton      22: SEE does not work when the control structure is too complex (e.g.,
                     23: load and then do
                     24: SEE NEXT-PIECE). anton 5mar2000
1.34      anton      25: 
1.43      anton      26: Include cannot handle lines longer than 255 characters.  anton 4sep00
1.41      anton      27: 
1.43      anton      28: Errors happening during a LOAD do not report the offending word and
                     29: its context (e.g., the 64-byte line). anton 8sep00
1.46      anton      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
1.47      anton      35: Our ecvt routine does not round correctly, e.g., 0.25->0.3. Marcel
                     36: Hendrix 3oct00 <8rdcmd$j96$>
                     38: Newline has only LF (instead of CRLF) in DOS.  Bruce Hoyt 25oct2000
                     39: <39f7b14b$>
1.50      anton      40: 
                     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
                     47: <3b4b4f57$0$42883$>
                     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
1.51      anton      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
1.53      anton      60: 
1.55      anton      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
1.56    ! anton      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().
