  • #BLOAT problem

    Any attempt to use #BLOAT in a program results in the following error:

    Error 496 in C:\PBCC40\Samples\Hello\Hello2.bas(0:000): Destination file write error

    Source code is:

    #BLOAT 65536
    #COMPILE EXE
    #DIM ALL

    FUNCTION PBMAIN () AS LONG
    ? "Hello, World!"

    WAITKEY$

    END FUNCTION

    Same here. This is the highest it will go.
    #BLOAT 10752
    #RESOURCE "HELLO.PBR"
    How long is an idea?

      #BLOAT 8192 was the largest I got to work.
      16384 and up give the error you state.

      I didn't try anything between these two.

        this works for me
        Code:
        #bloat 1024*1024*4*92 'make a 385,875,968 byte file
        as well as
        Code:
        #bloat 385875968&
        and
        Code:
        #bloat 385875968

          This was an issue with PBWin804, See this thread..
          http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...ad.php?t=35458

          It has been fixed in PBWin90.

              Should have tried with PBCC 5. Time to update.
              11264 is the minimum with PBCC 5. Works, fine.

                Usage of #BLOAT {expression} yields "Destination file write error"

                It may be a stupid question as I am still using and satisfied with PBCC 4.
                Is this fixed now? What release was it fixed under? I have a need for obfuscation, so I was finally looking at this compiler directive, only to find it isn't functional. Apparently the only function of it in PBCC 4 is that Bob Zale got me to laugh? Seriously, I can use it...

                  Using pbcc 4.04 and the below metastatement order it worked ok for me.
                  Code:
                  #COMPILE EXE
                  #DIM ALL
                  #BLOAT 16777234
