CCS 3.1.0 crashes when typing ")." in a comment

Started by joeblogss84 July 4, 2007
This one is odd.

When I type bracket followed by a period (that is ")." but without the
quotes) CCS just exits immediately; no files are saved, no access
violation or any warning like that, it just instantly disappears (both
the editor window and the parallel debug manager).

It seems to only happen when I am writing within a comment (block or
single line and only when the ")" does not follow a space. It doesn't
seem to be every comment or there is some dependency (leading space on
the line or something like that) that I haven't been able to determine.

Is it some sort of auto-completion keystroke that is causing a crash?
Anyone know of an editor setting that I could use to stop this happening.

Funnily enough, I can't seem to find the "Crash when typing ). in a
comment" option to disable it.

Known issue?

There was a recent comment on the code-comp group about Auto-Completion crashing CCS 3.1. Did you see it? Maybe if
you turn off Auto-Completion...

Hi all,

Here is an observation:

I opened a blank window in Functional simulator, save as "test.c" then when
I start to type the cursor disappears, if I type: //test). the cursor
briefly appears again as I type the ".". Does this help to track down the
problem?
