Hello Michael,

some more info: the segmentation fault still occurs under Linux (SuSE 8.0)
with today's snapshot. No options used, just the filename as the only arg.
I tried it on Solaris 8 today where it compiles fine. It works on Linux
when I change the variable name from "var" to "myvar" or add a variable in
the DECLARE section, but that can't be the solution. Any idea on how to
find the problem ?

Oh, BTW: the expression   :myarray[index[10]]   compiles OK as of
pgc.l version 1.125 2004/02/15  Thanks for your help !

I took this code as a.pgc and ran 'ecpg a.pgc' without any problem. Do
you use any special options for ecpg?

Hmm, my 7.4.1 version also compiles this snippet cleanly.

Could you please try if the following patch helps you?

This will make it into CVS soon.
