Summary0000973: "statusline time;" statement isn't recognized
DescriptionOriginally reported by Howard Sherman as Issue L61103

When I compile Greystone with 6.30 and 6/11 my statusline time; statement is seemingly ignored; the game runs by moves and not a clock. If I revert back to 6.21 and 6/10 the statusline is indeed a clock again and not a move counter.

I successfully contacted Howard Sherman. He is now looking for the source code to Greystone for me. He will either send me a test game to demonstrate the bug or send me the the whole source code under NDA so I can distill a test case that can be disclosed publicly.

Nathan Schwartzman proposed the fix below:

Try adding this in ParserM.h before Initialise is first called:
if (sys_statusline_flag ~= 0) the_time = 0;

This isn't a reversion to 6/10 behavior but it appears to work. However it
would probably be best to identify exactly what was changed between 6/10 and
6/11 that broke this.

I think I have misunderstood this bug report. I was under the impression that "Greystone" used a real-time clock and this clock wasn't running. As far as I can determine, the Library never had built-in support for a "Border Zone" style clock. In my tests, "Statusline time;" does indeed cause the status line to show a clock for 6/10, 6/11, and 6/12. I am therefore closing this Issue.
