Constraint parsing bug

Share Button

One avid user of my Calc Solver from Belgium found a rather serious, and a little embarrassing bug and brought it to my attention (thank you, Ludovic!). It was the way I convert a constraint formula from the spreadsheet format to the internal model, which utterly fails to do it correctly when the left-hand-side cell contains a constant value. I need to fix this sooner rather than later since I believe this is rather a severe bug that should not be left in the code knowingly (now that I know it…).

So, I’ll spend my next available time trying to fix it, and put it into ooo-build first. Then bring the fix to scsolver02 cws afterwards. I’ll have to hold off the upstream integration work for now.
