|0000716||Core Inform||Tables||public||2011-08-11 09:25||2014-05-07 07:34|
|Platform||PPC||OS||Mac OS X||OS Version||10.5|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0000716: Continued empty table causes compiler crash|
|Description||If a table is created with no rows given, and then later continued, the compiler crashes with error 10.|
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
Test is a room. Table of Thoughts item (object) thought (text) Table of Thoughts (continued) item thought yourself "I'm feeling very frustrated by a bug right now."
|Additional Information||Progress report from IDE:|
Launching: ni "-rules" "/Applications/Inform.app/Contents/Resources/Inform7/Extensions" "-package" "/Users/mike/i/tests/tmp.inform" "-extension=z5"
Inform 7 build 6G60 has started.
I've now read your source text, which is 27 words long.

I've also read Standard Rules by Graham Nelson, which is 39455 words long.
Compiler finished with code 10
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(critical) Compiler crashes|
#0 0x00102029 in new_table ()
#1 0x0010223a in Data__Tables__traverse_to_create ()
#2 0x0012e668 in Config__Template__interpret ()
#3 0x001314bc in main ()
Fixed. In fact (prior to crashing) Inform had issued a problem message at the first declaration:
Problem. The table Thoughts has no rows.
and this is now what it does (but without crashing). The ban on empty tables has been part of Inform's design from the earliest days; an empty table is like a pointer which can never safely be dereferenced; but I wonder if it ought to be allowed anyway to permit extensions to set up elaborate customisations. Still, that's another discussion.
