IDE Crash

Post by Flinx »

Hello,

while searching for other problems I got some crashes of the IDE. (My program reads strings from files, and at least a spanish character of a non-UTF8 string seems to be part of the problem.) The following example triggers the crash, but maybe only after some trials.

Code: Select all

Function p_Test()
	a$="AAAA"
	t$=ByteChr(0xa1).."BBBB"..ByteChr(0xa1).."BBBB"..ByteChr(0xa1).."BBBB"
	Return(a$ .. " - " .. t$)
EndFunction

DebugPrint("Test: ",p_Test())

Sometimes it does not crash here too, but then after leaving the IDE and restart. One time I got an "Out of memory" box.
Your picture shows the expected output (if handled as ISO 8859-1).
I have tried with Windows 7 32 Bit and Windows 10 64 Bit.

I think plouf is right and this bug has been fixed in Hollywood 9. I've tried it 50 times with Hollywood 9 and there are no crashes so I think this is fixed.

Are you using Hollywood 9 or an earlier version?

Hollywood 9.
At the moment I can't get a crash with Windows 10 64 Bit (but yesterday I had one, I swear :) ). But with the 32 Bit IDE it is no problem to get it. I have made a quick installation of the 32 Bit version in another 64 Bit Windows 10 environment, and already the first two trials did crash.

True, with the 32-bit version it is very easy to reproduce but it only happens when outputting text that is not in UTF-8. I've fixed it now. Please redownload Hollywood 9.0 from the restricted download area and install it again. The issue should be gone then.

Thank you.
(I found this while batch reading ID3 tags from MP3 files, at the moment I try to find out why some files work with Windows' but not with Linux' avcodec. But maybe not the tags are the problem, I still have to search.)
