|0001117||Core Inform||Assertions and creations||public||2013-05-29 08:40||2014-05-07 07:34|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0001117: Cyclic nesting is not always detected|
|Description||Ni loops forever on this source.|
However, it does catch the problem in some other sources, such as
- - - -
There is a room.
X is in Y.
Y is worn by X.
- - - -
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
There is a room. An over-sized poncho contains yourself. It is worn by yourself.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(critical) Compiler hangs|
Interestingly, the following code also hangs:
The Kitchen is a room.
X is a person.
The player is X.
The poncho contains X.
The poncho is worn by X.
*But* if you delete the line "The player is X," the compiler correctly catches the problem.
When running under a debugger, I see that the compiler generates the appropriate error message and *then* hangs:
>--> The yourself seems to be containing itself: yourself (created by
'yourself' (the Standard Rules, line 624)) in over-sized poncho (created by
'over-sized poncho' (source text, line 5)) in yourself... and so on. This
>--> The over-sized poncho seems to be containing itself: over-sized poncho
(created by 'over-sized poncho' (source text, line 5)) in yourself (created
by 'yourself' (the Standard Rules, line 624)) in over-sized poncho... and
so on. This is forbidden.
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

|Fixed: as zarf says, a case of inept error recovery. The problem message is now slightly better, in that it reports all disjoint cycles in what's called the progeniture tree, that is, it will report every essentially different case of this problem occurring in the source once only.|
