Error: Wrong token type: Symbol expected but / found ...
« on: March 27, 2019, 03:12:35 pm »
I am suddenly getting this error when compiling my project (almost unchanged, only edited some .pas files)

Error: Wrong token type: Symbol expected but / found (at 9,22, stream offset 000000CD)
XXX.dpr(166,0) Error: Error while compiling resources -> Compile with -vd for more details. Check for duplicates.

However - that error message is with -vd added since if I go to "Project options" and click "Show options" I can see that -vd has been added:

One thing I noticed is that if I click "Project options - Test" I get

Could that be the reason?

I have been experimenting trying to compile in older Lazarus version and then returning back.

Disabling all filters on "Messages" I now get this:

Quote
Debug: /Volumes/DiskW/shared-code/xxx/UmsSysConvert.pas(1021,1)  (3049) procedure/function msAlignmentToStr(const TAlignment):AnsiString;
Debug: An unhandled exception occurred at $000000010D98DBEE:
Debug: EAccessViolation: Access violation
Debug:   $000000010D98DBEE
Debug:
Verbose: Assembling (pipe) /Volumes/DiskW/yyy/lib/x86_64-darwin/UmsSysConvert.s
Fatal: Compilation aborted
Verbose: /Users/zzz/lazaruscoc64bit/fpc/bin/x86_64-darwin/ppcx64 returned an error exitcode

....

The only worthwhile thing mentioning about declaration:
Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. function msAlignmentToStr(const Alignment: TAlignment): string;
  2.  

is that it is placed just before implemention

and its implementation is placed just before end.

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. function msAlignmentToStr(const Alignment: TAlignment): string;
  2. begin
  3.   case Alignment of
  4.     taLeftJustify: Result := 'left';
  5.     taRightJustify: Result := 'right';
  6.     taCenter: Result := 'center';
  7.     else Result := '';
  8.   end;
  9. end;
  10.

The error only occurs when building my software. Not if I build a package that contains the unit.

I guess I will try with a trunk version. Does anyone know how I get more information about AccessViolation that happens the compiler? Maybe somehow lldb startlazarus? I will try research that when I get back tonight

If you remove the const modifier for the TAlignment parameter does it make any difference?

That solved the access violation error in the compiler.

However - the original problem has now returned:

Error: Wrong token type: Symbol expected but / found (at 9,22, stream offset 000000CD)
XXX.dpr(166,0) Error: Error while compiling resources -> Compile with -vd for more details. Check for duplicates.

My .dpr file is 165 lines - Maybe it is somehow trying to grab .res file twice? I wish I could see the problem though - the -vd does not seem to be working

Nevermind - running with verbose I can see the problem happens for one of my forms. Not quite sure why or how - but opening the form in Lazarus at designtime fails  as well

Open the .dpr with any text editor and check the offending line(s). It's the only way to see what the compiler is complaining about.

BTW, .DPR? Is that a Delphi project?
Turbo Pascal 3 CP/M - Amstrad PCW 8256 (512 KB !!!) :P
Lazarus 2.0.2/2.0.4  - FPC 3.0.4 on:
(K|L)Ubuntu 12..16, Windows XP SP3, various DOSes.

I believe this issue has now been resolved - the .dfm file was somehow corrupt - transferring it again worked. Mysterious.
