New user reporting a simple bug

gibell

I just started using openSCAD and it is great!!  I have, however, experienced some problems with it crashing.  Here is a simple program that crashes upon compile on my Windows binary version on Windows NT:

scale(v=2,2,2) cube(size=10);

An obvious syntax error, but took me some time to track this down since it was in the middle of a much longer program ...

thanks for your bug report.
recent version of openscad don't crash on this.

(btw: this is not a syntax error. it just sets the 'v' parameter to '2' and
add two positional parameters '2' and '2'. older versions of openscad
crashed because they interpreted v=2 like v=[0,0,0]. recent version simply
ignore the invalid parameter and do not scale.)

yours,
