|0000033||Core Inform||Phrases and functional programming||public||2010-06-14 13:25||2010-07-01 23:07|
|Platform||x86||OS||Mac OS X||OS Version||10.6|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6E72|
|Summary||0000033: To say phrases with text as variables can't be called|
|Description||The compiler accepts to say phrases that have text or indexed text as variables (To say foo (x - some text)...) but trying to call them results in a compiler error. This doesn't affect to-phrases (To foo (x - some text)...)|
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
To say foo (x - some text): say "foo [x]". To bar (x - some text): say "bar [x]". When play begins: say foo "test"; [this line throws a compiler error; removing it compiles the rest of the code fine.] bar "test". Lab is a room.
|Additional Information||Works as expected in 5Z71.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious) Compiler rejects valid code|
The problem message seems somewhat confused...
I was trying to match one of these phrases:
1. say "foo "test" - text"
2. say "[foo "test" - number]"
3. say "[foo "test" - unicode character]"
4. say "[foo "test" - sayable value]"
This was what I found out:
foo "test" = something unrecognised
Fixed. This sort of definition is perhaps questionable - To say... definitions are really intended for text substitutions, and those aren't really meant to have text parameters, because literal text couldn't be used in them. So I'm not sure it was serious.
It failed because of a misguided optimisation in the parsing machinery, which discarded uses of "say" with exactly one textual parameter when matching against a say phrase other than To say (T - text); it should have been more careful.
