Description (last modified by evhan)

64-bit builds on Windows (MinGW/MSYS) fail on the lolevel tests with the error "invalid encoded numeric literal".

rm a.o
[panic] invalid encoded numeric literal - execution terminated

.\rules.make:665: recipe for target 'check' failed
mingw32-make: *** [check] Error 1

This was observed on an x86-64 Windows 7 VM. Cygwin and 32-bit MinGW builds are unaffected.

  • Milestone changed from someday to 4.13.0

This is not new in 4.12.0rc1 (4.11.0 exhibits the same behaviour), so I don't think it should block the release.

I’ve been investigating this issue and big-fixnum literals seem to be wrongly generated indeed.

A “f” character is appended to all of them.

The code that generates these literals is in c-backend.scm line 1420.

(string-append "\x55" (number->string lit) "\x00")

What I don’t understand is that number->string works fine in csi!

I've finally found some time to solve this riddle.
