|0000183||Core Inform||Source text and punctuation||public||2010-07-07 10:52||2010-10-28 00:30|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6F95|
|Summary||0000183: Inform blames the story title for an undeclared object in (+ .. +), or, if there is no title, it crashes.|
|Description||For the below code, I get: |
Problem. In the sentence '"cutebug" by Ron Newcomb' , I was expecting to read something unrecognised, but instead found some text that I couldn't understand - 'bar'.
It is not helpful, if somewhat amusing, to have the error located in the title & author name.
It does this even if the bad inclusion appeared in an extension, which is a bit worse since it's looking in the wrong file.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
"cutebug" by Ron Newcomb. Spot is room. Include (- Global foo = (+ bar +); -) after "Definitions.i6t".
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(critical) Compiler reports internal error|
Confirmed. Without a title the source provokes an ICE.
I'm not sure what category is the best fit, though I think ``source text'' is a nearer match than ``extensions.''
|A crash while trying to report an error, which occurred only if Inform's record of which sentence it's scanning is null; which hardly ever happens, but can happen if (as here) it is reading text ("bar") which doesn't come from a sentence in the source text as such. In the case where the heading is present, there's coincidentally a value left in this pointer already, so no crash. Anyway, it's fixed.|
