#2684 VerifyError

SlimerDude Wed 7 Feb 2018

I came across a strange edge case today whereby I was getting a java.lang.VerifyError on code that should work. I've reduced it down to this code:

class Example {
    [Str:Obj]? map1
    Void main(Str[] args) {
        map2 := map1 ?: Str:Obj?[:]
        map3 := [,].reduce(Str:Obj?[:]) { it }

which gives:

java.lang.VerifyError: (class: fan/acme/Example, method: main signature: (Lfan/sys/List;)V) Incompatible argument to function

Changing any part of the code in any way (like removing the elvis, or not using a field), and it runs just fine as expected.

Thanks for reporting that. Was tricky and took me a while to track it down, but in the end it was a compiler bug where I explicitly left myself a TODO comment. I pushed a fix.
