Virtual Pascal

Classic Object Pascal for free

I have finally got a copy of OS/2 up and running, but don't have any of the truly ancient versions I used to use. Instead, I am using a copy of eComStation 1.1, and it seems to be working fine.

However, something looks a little fishy: All of the OS-level exceptions I get raised are of type EInvalidOp ($C000000097), rather than of type EOverflow, EZeroDivide, etc.

Is this something I have broken, or is it how eComStation works? If one of you have an old copy of OS/2, can you try to run the AllTests example for me please and see whether it works? I have attached an executable (OS/2) copy here, but it would be useful to compare what this one does against what happened with executables made with an earlier version of VP.

Let me know, please :)

eComStation doesn't differ from OS/2 least not for things that VP/2 would use.
Output for your testapp here on eCS 2.0 rc5:

Of 29 tests, 5 tests failed:
tCommandLineTest: Paramcount
tTestOSExceptions: Privileged instruction: Unexpected exception "Access violation at address 000107FE. Read of address FFFFFFFF"

Not sure if it still matters but I actually get slightly different results for OS/2 Warp 4.0 and eCS 1.0 (just the end differs).


OS/2 Warp 4.0 FP11:

- tTestOSExceptions - Failed (Float overflow: Unexpected exception "Floating point overflow")


eCS 1.0 FP5 (kernel 14.104a_W):

- tTestOSExceptions !! Memory leak in bytes: 68

- Failed (Unexpected exception Invalid floating point operation ())


BTW, I'm willing to do other testing, also using older VP/2 versions, etc., but please, e-mail me directly (I guess Allan would have my e-mail address somewhere, or just search for "xhajt03" in Google) because I don't get here very often.
