SYMPTOMS

Incorrect code is generated for a comparison such as
   if (!(i > 0))
				
when it is compiled with both the /Og and /Ob1.

RESOLUTION

To work around the problem disable either the /Ob1 or /Og optimization.

MORE INFORMATION


The following code is output.

     i=7<BR/>
     Error!<BR/><BR/>
				
It should output the following:
     i=7<BR/>
     i=6<BR/>
     i=5<BR/>
     i=4<BR/>
     i=3<BR/>
     i=2<BR/>
     i=1<BR/>
     i=0<BR/>
				

Steps to Reproduce Behavior


Compile the following code with /Og and /Ob1.
#include <stdio.h>
class C
{
public:
    C(int i) { mLow = i; mHigh = 0; }
    int getByte(int i) const;
    unsigned long mLow;
    unsigned long mHigh;
};

inline int C::getByte(int i) const
{
    if (i < 4)
	return (mLow >> (i << 3)) & 0xFF;
    else
	return (mHigh >> ((i - 4) << 3)) & 0xFF;
}

int main()
{
    C h (1);
    int i = 7;
    for ( i = 7; ; i--) {
		printf("i=%d\n",i);
        if (h.getByte(i) != 0)
            break;
        if (!(i > 0)) {				// Incorrect code
            printf("Error!\n");
            break;
        }
    }
    return 1; 
}
