v 0182

MacOS 10.5.8 macbook pro unibody early 2009

This is a compile time error through the processing IDE. Any simple syntax
problem will now fire only this error. For instance i made this simple

My line was in an included file within a class method
if(other.virus > 0.0) //optimise

accidentally i then removed the comment slashes

if(other.virus > 0.0) optimise

An obvious typo. However rather than stop at this line during compile, the
IDE stops at setup() in the main file. Here is the full output..

processing.app.debug.RunnerException: It looks like you're mixing "active"
and "static" modes.
at processing.app.Sketch.preprocess(Sketch.java:1326)
at processing.app.Sketch.preprocess(Sketch.java:1205)
at processing.app.Sketch.build(Sketch.java:1568)
at processing.app.Sketch.build(Sketch.java:1553)
at processing.app.Editor$DefaultRunHandler.run(Editor.java:1648)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:613)

Some things to note...i have been working on "core" albeit in a different
location copy, this is the standard vanilla 0182. This app or 95% has
never had this output before the last two weeks (likely my last processing
download, so likely 0182), although of course it could be the 5% i changed.

Not a critical bug just annoying as you have to search for your typo's.

can you give me a short example that doesn't require your other classes to
run? i need something that we can reproduce and test against.

(In reply to comment #2)

Seems i can delete almost everything from my 4 file 3 class project....but
i must leave 1 class other than the main sketch...and the error is always
precompile sytax error. Normally missing semi-colon or just random text
somewhere. Plus it seems to start at some random compile and then never go

fixed in 0184.

if anyone gets a similar error message, *open a new bug*.

*do not add to this bug report, now that it is closed.*
