Known Bugs in ChucK

These following have been verified and will be fixed in an upcoming release.


  • multiple declarations in single statement causes crashes/undefined behavior. Example:
   // bug: this causes bad things to happen
   int a, b;

Here is a workaround until the bug is fixed:

   // workaround
   int a; int b;
  • spork a non-static member function causes crashes/undefined behavior. Example:
   class X
   {
       void fun foo() { <<< "hi" >>>; }
   }
   
   X x;
   
   // bug: causes crash and undefined behavior
   spork ~ x.foo();
  • ++/-- causes incorrect behavior when used inline. Example:
   // bug
   i++ * y++ => z;

Workaround: split into multiple statements

  • static class variables are initialized incorrectly. Example:
   class X
   {
       // bug - this is not initialized
       static Object our_object;
   }

Here is a workaround:

   class X
   {
       // declare as reference
       static Object @ our_object;
   }
   
   // initialize outside class
   new Object @=> X.our_object;
