Dear BB users,
a new BB release is available under www.bluebottle.ethz.ch that contains
some improvements over the last release a week ago. Recall that the
object file format was changed in the release of Nov. 10, 06. The new
release as of Nov. 17, 06 is more stable than the previous one and
contains the following major changes:
1. The version number of the object file has been incremented. This
makes object files written in the new format easily distinguishable from
object files written in an earlier format..
2. A new compiler option \S has been introduced. Compiling a source file
with \S does not import the symbol file of an object file with the same
extension. This means that you can compile a source file with the new
compiler even if an object file written in another format is available.
3. The Oberon decoder (Decoder.Mod) has been adapted to the new object
4. A compiler error for code sizes longer than 64K has been fixed.
The documentation on the object file format has been revised and
updated. It is available under
Attention: Please recompile all your source files with compiler option
\S (PC.Compile \S Source.Mod or PC0.Compile \S Source.Mod).
My thanks go to Felix Friedrich who adapted the Oberon decoder and who
tested code sizes longer than 64K.
I wish everybody good luck with the new release.
