Defects in ciforth per 5.3.0 - No new defects Defects in ciforth per 5.2.1 Severe: -BAG 's have been changed to using DATA instead of CREATE Any use of BAG's leads to corruption of the dictionary and crashes. Work around: In the screen that defines BAG replace DATA with CREATE Defects in ciforth per 5.1 No new defects Defects in ciforth per 5.0.0 beta Severe: - The save-system for linux 64 bit generates not-fully elf format files, though they run. - The double comparison in forth.lab are wrong. Work around: do not use REQUIRE, just include the correct code. : D0< NIP 0< ; : D< ROT 2DUP <> IF > NIP NIP ELSE 2DROP < THEN ; : D> 2SWAP D< ; : D>= D< NOT ; : D<= D> NOT ; Solved in 5.1. Defects in ciforth per 4.0.7 See defects in 4.0.6. The missing @'s in the documentation is fixed since 4.0.6. Also the memory i s enlarged, those are the only changes. Severe: (Always been there, but now the problem is clear.) The redirection on Windows XP doesn't work for the command interpreter: it takes over the file from which commands are read unconditionally, and doesn't head the /c option and the commands after it. This was not easily detected, because most of the file was already buffered, and only the remainder of the file is passed to the command interpreter. If the whole file is buffered, there is no problem. The effect is that we are left in an interactive shell. Less severe. * REQUIRE @+ fails Work around: precede by `` REQUIRE ALIAS ''. * It may be that in some 16 bit version input buffer falls one byte short of iso. * Real mode booting version no longer works. Cosmetic * The file rw-line.frt needed for toblk.frt fromblk.frt is missing from the generic distribution. Work around: you don't really need this example file * Some @ are missing in the documentation. Solved in 4.0.7 * A problem imposed on us by makeinfo with the documentation system. An apallingly large number of Forth names, can't be node names in makeinfo. This leads to the worddocsafe macro besides the worddoc macro. We need either a Forth makeinfo clone (the preferred solution), or I must in the first m4 inversion sneek in the worddocsafe macro based on a criterion what characters are present. Oops. I just discovered that : (colon) cannot even be looked up via de index. Work around: none, just live with it. * make x.ps as is needed to build documentation generate an alarming number warnings especially cifgen.ps. Work around: none, just live with it. Wishlist * Add an option to put the regression test as examples to the manual. * _ISO_IN_ version cannot load blocks. * _ISO_IN_ must be cleaned up to the point that >IN has the ISO behaviour, i.e. it can be written.
