CCL fails to quit on Windows

Reported by: fare Owned by:

Component: other Version: 1.11
Keywords: Cc:


CCL always fails to quit on Windows and just hangs when run from CMD.EXE. When run from cygwin's bash, it usually succeeds to quit, but sometimes fail.

I noticed this behavior while compiling asdf-tools with CCL on Windows (asdf-tools being a test tool used by ASDF to run its test suite).

To reproduce, run CMD.EXE, in it, run wx86cl64.exe, and in it, try to (quit).

NB: I used the release binary for 1.11, and didn't try to compile from source. I'm not sure how to setup what C compiler to compile CCL on Windows.

I don't see this issue on Windows Server 2008.

Interesting. I have the issue reliably on Windows 10. Always in CMD.exe, often but not always in bash (but then I can Ctrl-C out of it). A thread and/or console issue?
