v1.8.9 : IF / ULONG > ULONG() array comparison bug
#1
Hello Boriel, my first post here, so I'm sorry it's to report a bug.

I found a problem when comparing a ULONG variable with any entry in an array of ULONGs.
Saving the array entry to a temporary ULONG variable to compare with is a workaround.

The problem seems to happen with v1.87, so is perhaps an older bug.

A working code comparison sample is pasted below.
The code purpose is to find where to insert a page number in an array of page numbers, where the pages are stored in correct sequence but are not simply incrementing numbers.
Switch between SUBs v1() / v2() to compare the output.

Thanks

Code:
' '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
' Declarations
DIM ulStoryPage, ulTemp AS ulong  
DIM ulLongStory (5) AS ulong   => { 900000, 700000, 500000, 300000, 100000, 0 }
DIM uiCounter, uiPosition, uiYPos AS ubyte
' '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
' Inits.
LET uiCounter = 5 : LET uiPosition = 5 : LET uiYPos = 10
LET ulStoryPage = 500001

' Toggle this between v1() and V2() to compare.

        LET uiCounter = uiCounter - 1

        ENDIF
        LET uiYPos = uiYPos + 1

END SUB

SUB v2()    ' Find the page position in the story V2...  Assigns the array value to a temp value to compare.  (This works)
    DO
        LET uiCounter = uiCounter - 1
        LET ulTemp = ulLongStory(uiCounter)         '     Using a temporary ULONG to compare with instead of the array.
        IF ulStoryPage > ulTemp
            LET uiPosition = uiCounter
            PRINT AT uiYPos,0; INK 4; "Slot=";uiCounter; " Page="; ulLongStory(uiCounter); " insert @"; uiPosition
        ELSE
            PRINT AT uiYPos,0; INK 2; "Slot=";uiCounter; " Page="; ulLongStory(uiCounter)
        ENDIF
        LET uiYPos = uiYPos + 1
    LOOP UNTIL uiCounter = 0
END SUB
