compile-time error

From Lazarus wiki

English (en) suomi (fi)

Compile-time error, which means the program did not compile. The compiler found and reported an error during compile time.

Fairly common compile time errors

  • Missed semicolons - A fairly common coding error is the omission of the required semicolons. Usually every Pascal statement ends with a semicolon

Own compile time error

The compiler directive {$Fatal Error Message text} can create your own compile time error:

  // some code ..

  // To keep the compilation going
  // you need to change the code at this point

  {$Fatal  Error Message text}

  // .. here is the code that is not compiled
  // because the compilation stopped in error
