Q58039: "Internal Error" Using Two-Dimensional Single-Precision Array
Article: Q58039 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 | 7.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist7.00 fixlist7.10 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 21-SEP-1990 The code example below generates the error message "Internal Error near 8C54" when compiled using the BC.EXE shipped with Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) version 7.00 for MS-DOS and MS OS/2. This problem does not occur in the QBX.EXE environment or in earlier compiler versions. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft BASIC PDS version 7.00. This problem was corrected in BASIC PDS version 7.10. Code Example ------------ DIM a (4, 4), b(4, 4) k% = i% + 1 a(0, j%) = a(0, k%) b(0, j%) = b(0, k%) To work around this problem in 7.00, compile using the BC /D (Debug) option, or change the arrays to integer arrays or double-precision arrays. To cause the error, the array must be single precision, two-dimensional, and referenced with integer variables as shown.
