Found 4 Bugs in BruControl Beta Release (v220.127.116.11)
I found four minor bugs in the beta release of the software. Should I post this issues here, or are bugs being tracked elsewhere?
I think I'll go ahead and post it here. I can also move it later, if needed. The attached zip file contains a configuration file with 4 short scripts that highlight the issues. They are:
- Can't Sleep: The sleep command will not allow you to specify a variable as the sleep time.
// This script stalls out on line 9 [Main] new value sleepTime sleepTime = 250 sleepTime precision = 0 print "Begin Test" sleep sleepTime // Code does not execute byond this point print "End Test" stop "Can't Sleep"
- Comments and Quotes: The syntax highlighting gets out of sync if a single quote is included in a comment.
[Main] new string myStr myStr = "This line has proper syntax highlighting" // Notice how the syntax highlighting beyond this point // gets messed up if a single quote " is included in // the comments. myStr = "Syntax highlighting is messed up here" // and in the line below stop "Comments and Quotes"
- Out of Sync: Very long quotes mess up the interpreter during debugging. If you load the following script and step through it in debug mode, you'll see what I mean.
// If you step through this code in the debugger, you'll find that the interpreter gets out // of sync after line 8. The 'step' function doesn't recognize that the string, myLongString, // is multiple lines lone. [Main] print "Test 1" new string myLongString myLongString = "This is a test to see what happens when the line wraps in the script editor. This is a test to see what happens when the line wraps in the script editor. This is a test to see what happens when the line wraps in the script editor.This is a test to see what happens when the line wraps in the script editor. This is a test to see what happens when the line wraps in the script editor." print "Tests 2" print "Tests 3" print "Tests 4" print "Tests 5" stop "Out of Sync"
The fourth issue is a little more complicated to explain. So, I created the attached PDF file to demonstrate. Basically, under certain conditions, the script editor messes with the size of large Globals.
Thanks for posting these.
#1 is not technically a bug. Sleep doesn't accept a variable as input, only a number. That said, this should be available, so we'll still include it.
#2 is a bug - the quote should be ignored since it is commented
#3 fair enough - we might not be able to fix this easily, but can document it
#4 is a bug - I thought we fixed this but maybe not fully.
Thanks again for passing these along!
#3 is easy to work around. I just build the longer strings incrementally.
new string myLongString myLongString = "This is a test to see what happens when the line wraps in the script editor." myLongString = myLongString + "Add more stuff here."
It drove my nuts until I figured out what was going on. Now it's easy to work around.
I'm seeing a similar issue with long comments too. I generally avoid doing this, but I did notice the issue.
BTW: I love the software. I'm having a lot of fun building out my new brew controller interface. Cheers.
One final thought on #3. Could you just eliminate line wrapping in the editor window? If the text never wraps, you would eliminate the problem. Just a thought.
