Pascal X6.3-137

Post by martinv » Tue May 09, 2023 5:01 am

Now that the native PASCAL compiler for x86_64 is out, the first thing I tried it out on was our in-house developed ERP system. Unfortunately, it fails on the third file compiled with a non-meaningful - at least, to me - LLVM error message. The module compiled is just a bunch of procedures to read and write FAT-formatted floppy disks (yes, I know. It shows the age of the system...)

Code: Select all

    RIP = FFFF830008F336AF  RSP = 000000007ACC15A0  SS  = 000000000000001B
Also, no listing file is produced in that case. I already fixed some sloppy programming with respect to $FILESCAN in that file, but am at a loss where to look for further problems. Anyone?

TIA,
Martin

P.S.: Also opened a case SPS-1052

Thanks for the support ticket. I'll look at this soon (I've seen it from another customer already). There is clearly something in the LLVM IR that we generate. I'll let you know if there is a workaround or if I can just fix it and an update the compiler quickly.
