I downloaded and tried sdcc 2.4.0 on 3 different win98
ative/xa51/ds400/hc08 2.4.0 (Feb 23 2004) (MINGW32)
On 2 of 3 computers, it worked perfectly okay, including
version check and actual compilation.
One the third computer, it works okay for version check,
but, crashes on actual compilation of ANY source file
with a windows error message. The error message is
attached in a BMP file, with this bug report.
The first two computers (where all is well) have 128
Mbytes of memory while the third one (where sdcc
crashes) has 256 Mbytes of memory. All 3 computers
are Pentium-III and all are of indentical version of
Quite surprisingly, the SDCC 2.3.3 of version SDCC :
2.3.3 (Jan 27 2003) (MING W32), does not crash for
any of the source files, while SDCC 2.4.0 always crashes.
A further surprise to report is that the computer on
which the sdcc 2.4.0 crashes when executing from
MSDOS window, it DOES NOT crash when executing
from a TOOL facility available inside the IDE of
sourceforge's ANYEDIT editor.
All 3 computers have been certified to be virus-free
using Norton AV 2004 and Escan.
