Crash using the identity operator with enum values

The following code (in which MyEnum has been registered as an enum and MyEnumValue has been registered as enum value of MyEnum):

void Update()
MyEnum enumValue = MyEnumValue;

bool condition = true;

if (condition)
if(enumValue is MyEnumValue)
int i = 0;
int j = 1;

Results in the following crash while compiling:

Potentially relevant watches at "void asCByteCode::AddPath(asCArray<cByteInstruction *> &paths, cByteInstruction *instr, int stackSize)":

- instr 0x0034a128 {next=0x0034a230 prev=0x00349e10 op=asBC_LABEL ...} cByteInstruction *
+ next 0x0034a230 {next=0x0034a288 prev=0x0034a128 op=asBC_LINE ...} cByteInstruction *
+ prev 0x00349e10 {next=0x0034a128 prev=0x00349f70 op=asBC_Block ...} cByteInstruction *
op asBC_LABEL asEBCInstr
arg 0 unsigned __int64
+ wArg 0x0034a140 short [3]
size 0 int
stackInc 0 int
marked true bool
stackSize 5 int
instr->marked true bool
instr->stackSize 5 int
stackSize 4 int

Now, obviously, this code has been obtained by simplifying actual, useful code smile.png.

Strangely, removing the "if/else" will allow the code to compile.

Also, isn't this an illegal use of the identity operator? Someone here found this issue. I'm not the original "author" and I'm thinking whoever wrote this meant to use ==.

In fact, I'm not too sure what the operator should accomplish in this case (aside from logging an error at compile-time).

Note that I'm not 100% sure the issue isn't on my side but, judging by the call stack, I doubt it is.

I'm using v2.23.0.

Any idea?

Thanks for the report.

The identity operator is indeed not meant to be used with enums. It should only be available for reference types and handles.

I'll have this fixed.

I've fixed this bug in revision 1259.

The result of the above script will now be that the compiler gives the error "Both operands must be handles when comparing identity".
