problem with string.jack

bader
hi i have finished all the OS classes, they passed the tests. but when i try to put all of my classes to work together (take all of my vm's and try to test) the string test fails when trying to perform setInt(-num)
somehow it tries to divide by zero. i don't know where the problem could be since the all pass in separate.

a help would be appreciated,
bader

The first thing I would check is that there are no missing  init() calls in Sys.init(). For instance, your String.setInt() is using divide, so perhaps Math.init() didn't get called.

Also, you may have an initialization order problem in Sys.init()'s calls to the other init() functions. This usually causes crashes before Main.main() gets called in SysTest, but there may be something subtly wrong.

One way to approach debugging this is to copy your OS .vm files into the StringTest directory one at a time and see which one causes the error to appear.

well i call the init function of other classes exactly as the supplied vm, and in the same order, here is the result vm commands:
function Sys.init 0
call Memory.init 0
pop temp 0
call Math.init 0
pop temp 0
call Screen.init 0
pop temp 0
call Output.init 0
pop temp 0
call Keyboard.init 0
pop temp 0
call Main.main 0
pop temp 0
call Sys.halt 0
pop temp 0
push constant 0
return

-----------------------------------
Math.jack class causes the error to appear (its from the divide function)!
i believe that it tries to divide by zero, i assumed the validity of the input (did not handle errors) but when i compile with the supplied Math class it tells me ERR3 which is division by zero!

maybe my String goes through another class in its way to the math class, i will keep debuging.

thanks,
bader

Details? Which of your OS .vm files are you loading besides String.vm?

Assuming it's just your String.vm and Math.vm, What happens if you delete your String.vm and run with the built-in version?

i also tried to put all built in vm files (except for math), and still have the same problem.
"That segment must be in heap..."

note: in divide i use access to two global static arrays which are initialized in the Math.init.
