C11.2.3) Qualification error in code generation of division expression




Description

This article is from the FAQ, by with numerous contributions by others.

C11.2.3) Qualification error in code generation of division expression

Sometimes v5.1 of the compiler on Linux and Windows 95/NT will will crash
with a Qualification Error during code generation of expressions involving
division.

If the resulting dump file starts with something like

   item <op1ToEBX#> in ~beta/.../system/v5.1/LINUXmachine
   -- GDIV-~ in ~beta/.../system/v5.1/LINUXmachine

then it is this error that has occurred.

On linux, the error will occur if you compile e.g. the demo
~beta/demo/r3.1/Xt/awenv/scroll.bet. None of the demos on Windows NT/95
contain expressions that will cause this error, but you may encounter the
problem in files of your own.

The solution is to split up the expression involving the division into
simpler expressions. Use option --traceCode to find out what expression is
causing the error.
