Subject:unmatched single quote causes stylus crash Author:Srini Namineni Date:29 Mar 2000 01:22 AM
I am evaluating Stylus 2.0 and it crashed
while I tried to refresh the HTML view after
changing my template file.
Using other command line tools, I figured
out that my template file was syntactically
So I created a simpler syntactically incorrect XSL template file that crashes stylus.
I've attached the XML and XSL files to reproduce the problem.
I replaced <, > with [, ] so that I can post them on this board.
It seems like the unmatched single quote before " in the [xsl:if] is causing it to crash.
The crash (Dr. Watson) is completely reproducible with these files on my NT 4.0 SP5 and Windows 2000.
Is this a known bug? I can work around it for now,
but it is very annoying when the tool crashes instead
of pointing out the mistakes in the template.

Thanks for your effort in narrowing that down. A fix will appear in the next point release. You'll find that in general Stylus has very good error reporting; you just happened to run into a bug in Stylus' error reporter.
