eCompile showing bizarre behaviour with ThreadedCompilation set.

Post by Yukiko » Fri Nov 17, 2017 5:53 pm

I have noticed that eCompile exhibits some strange behaviour when I enable ThreadedCompilation.

Here is what I have observed:
Compilation appears to continue when errors are encountered in a script. If I scroll upwards in the list of compiled files I can find an error but as I said before compilation continues.
The compilation summary at the end of compilation is inaccurate.

I believe I know what's happening. I believe that one thread encounters the error and stops but the other thread continues on. Then at the end, that thread, the one that did not encounter the error, reports its summary of compiled files but not the total compiled files.

Any thoughts from the Core developers on this and my analysis?
Sincerely,
Yukiko

I would tell you a UDP joke but you might not get it.

I guess no one else has witnessed this behaviour. Could it be because I have a dual processor system? Plus it's older so maybe the motherboard logic is quirky perhaps?
