Boostc: Can't Handle Keyword 'register' Properly

Recommended Posts

Bug description:

compiler struggles with keyword register it complains

error: missing semicolon, but i don't know where.

if you remove the keyword register, it compiles fine


Steps to reproduce:

compile the following with BoostC


#include <system.h>

char strlen(const char* s) 
 register char len = 0;
 while(s[len]) len++;
 return len;

char length;

void main()
 length = strlen("how long is it");  // 14


Expected behaviour:

the compiler should ignore the keyword register


Is the problem 100% reproduceable: yes


IDE version: SourceBoost IDE 5.6.1

Compiler: BoostC

Compiler version: Alpha 1.4

OS: Win2000
