I just ran into an issue when linking. I added one additional routine, now SLINK will not build the library. Remove ANY object file from the list, and it works well. I may have exceeded either a number of files limit, or a "command line" limit.

The error is:
Code:
Runtime error from program:c:\program files (x86)\silverfrost\ftn95\slink.exe
Access Violation
The instruction at address 0040c0ed attempted to read from location 6464612f

 0040c089 parseCommandLine(<ptr><ptr>char) [+0064]

 0040c0f0  jne      40c102
 0040c0f6  mov      [ebp-0x2c],0x1


I am adding about 240 object files to the library.

From my make file, the command line is:
Code:

   $(LINKER) /archive:$(LIBRARY_CMASTER) $(addprefix /addobj:,$(CMASTEROBJECTS) $(CFUNCOBJECTS)) /addobj:$(DESTINATION)\KML_CONVERT.obj


For the time being I'll remove the new module and hold off development of that item.

Any help/suggestions on how to work around this would be much appreciated.

Bill

NB: Running V8.05 of FTN95

Have you tried building the library with SLIM, instead?

No, I haven't tried SLIM.

I just finished an adjustment to the build about 3 minutes ago.

The build will now not generate an enormously long command line to be processed, and now it has no problem building the library and completing the executables.

Perhaps this points the way!

From the code for SLINK, it looks like a problem with the command line rather than a limit to the number of files.

I don't have any further information at the moment other than that there may be too many command line arguments.

Is it possible to display the slink command line that the makefile creates?

Yes, here is the raw SLINK. About 13K

Would it work to have the makefile build up an Slink script file and then call Slink with the name of the script file as the only argument? Something along the lines of
...
<TAB>echo $@ >> files.lst
...
<TAB>slink files.lst

Perhaps that would work.

The easier way was to store all the object files that are on the command line and place them into a special folder when they get compiled. Then, point SLINK to the folder using /addobj:new_folder\*.obj.

Much easier to "fix" it this way.

If you were able to change directory (cd) to f:\cmasterf95\CHECKMATE\WIN32 and run SLINK from there, then you would only need the short file names.

At the moment I am assuming that there is some system limit on the size of a command.

I am using a separate folder for the large number of object files that are compiled from one of my source folders, then using a wildcard to /addobj: them in.

So the problem is bypassed, and actually, the MAKEFILE is cleaner now!

Thanks for taking a look.

The command line limit for windows 10 is (apparently) 32767 characters. I cannot find a specific MS reference to this. The only number I can find is 8191 (windows 7).

Anyone know what the limit actually is?
