Re: Spurious Imports

I have checked and as far as I can see the Astrobe compiler more or less works like the Project Oberon compiler as far as indirect imports go. As an example, if module M1 imports Texts and module M1 exports an item that references Texts then a module that imports M1 will indirectly import Texts as w...

Re: Spurious Imports

The v8.0 Astrobe compiler includes some modifications to the way symbol files are handled to as mentioned in the What's New notes: The items in an IMPORT list may now be included in any order. The sequence is not affected by dependencies or indirect imports. I'm on leave right now - I'll check somet...

Re: Spurious Imports

Search for the word ''índirect'' in the Project Oberon book and you will find references to indirect module imports which should help in understanding when they occur and why they are needed.

The attached example included with CPIde shows how to create a basic Windows App with a main menu. When you select a menu item the menu caption is displayed on the StatusBar. The code includes a function which uses the .NET StringBuilder functions to efficiently strip non-alphabetic characters from ...

Debugging GPCP using Visual Studio

John Gough (the author of the Gardens Point family of compilers, including GPCP) wrote an article to address this issue: Back in the early days of Visual Studio.NET the IDE shipped with a program called DbgCLR, which was found in a GuiDebug directory in the VS distribution. Since VS-2008, this progr...

Re: ASSERT & Error.Mod (version 8.0)

You are not missing anything - it is one of those unfortunate 'backward compatibility' issues. I'll make a note to document it in the Astrobe for RISC5 Oberon Programming Guide. The 2008 Oberon Language Report that Wirth's Oberon SA (StrongArm) compiler conformed to, defined an optional second param...

Re: Creating Boot Files for EO with Astrobe for RISC5

A big thank you to gray for documenting this process. Creating a new boot file for Embedded Oberon has now got a whole lot easier with the new Link command in v8.0 Astrobe for RISC5. The new process is this: 1. Update the core modules (FileDir, Kernel, Files and Modules) with your changes as require...
