String woes


#1

Why does:

return “0.0” (Windows, latest tip) ??


#2

Un-f*cking-believable.

There’s nothing wrong with the code, and this works on other OSes. But on win32, it seems that if the first parameter to the function is a reference, then the va_arg stuff just fails. Looks like their va_start macro contains some stupid code that does a sizeof on the reference, and calculates the wrong address from it.

By changing the format parameter from a const String& to a const String, it all works fine. Jeez…
