  1. Bug description: A string can be declared as follows: char* MyString = "Contents of string" Missing of the '*' either causes the compiler to crash or mess-up some way. Steps to reproduce: Attempt to compile the following code (in a file "bug.c"): #include <system.h> void main() { char* String1 = "I will compile!"; char String2 = "I upset the compiler!"; while(true) { nop(); } } Doing so will produce the following output: BoostC Optimizing C Compiler Version 1.9.3 Beta (for PIC16 architecture) http://www.picant.com/c2c/c.html Copyright(C) 2004-2005 Pavel Baranov Copyright(C) 2004-2005 David Hobday Exit code was 128. Removing target: bug.obj Failed to locate output file 'bug.obj' Done Failed I assume the compiler is crashing Declaring String2 as a char* instead will compile. Expected behaviour: The compiler should throw up a helpful error message. Is the problem 100% reproduceable: Yup, every time! Tested on: IDE version: 5.8 Compiler: BoostC Compiler version: 1.9.3 Target device: PIC16F877 OS: Win2k SP4
