Bug with particular inline if statement

Recommended Posts

I just found a strange bug with a particular arrangement of operations and an inline if:
void advance(bool full) {
nextThink = gameTime + ( (full ? 10.0 : 1.0) * 30.0 );
}
Expected: nextThink = 300 or 30, depending on the argument. Result: 900. (tested with different values, always the square of the last value) The function is a method in a class. nextThink is a member of that class. gameTime is a global property accessor. Removing this operation eliminates the bug. Similarly:
void advance(bool full) {
nextThink = gameTime + ( 30.0 * (full ? 10.0 : 1.0) );
}
Expected: nextThink = 300 or 30, depending on the argument. Result: 100 (full was true in this case, so it used the result of the inline if twice)

Looks like a bug in the compiler. It is probably overwriting a temporary variable too soon.

I'll have this fixed as soon as possible. In the meantime I suggest you break up this expression in multiple statements, which should work around the bug.

I've reproduced the problem. For some reason it only happens when using double types. If you use float, the expression works correctly.

I'll have a solution soon.

I've checked in the fix in the SVN now (rev 555).

Diff for as_compiler.cpp.

Thanks for reporting this.
