JILRun runtime environment released

By Jewe | December 22, 2014

A new version of the command line application has been released.

Changes this time cover improved crash handling of the runtime. The application will now produce a detailed crash log if either a virtual machine exception, or a native exception is raised. The crash log will list current instruction, call stack, register contents, data stack contents and the code of the current function.

Native exceptions include access violations and stack overflows. They are caught even when they occur in C parts of the program. Due to certain optimizations, and the VM being in an inconsistent state during the exception, the crash log may not be entirely accurate when catching native exceptions. But it can still give developers a better clue on what went wrong.

There’s also a new command-line option: -log enables file logging for the program. All output will be written to a log file named “jilrun.log”. The log file will be created in the same directory as the script file executed by the program.
