Actually, the original code used two VARs, not typed CONST. One VAR was initialized and one was not. I think this is a bug and should be fixed.
As Jonas already pointed out: "var i : longint = 0;" is internally handled using the same code path as "const i : longint = 0", and typed constants cannot be used as counter variables. This is indeed probably a bug. ---- On Wed, 11 Sep 2019 12:40:57 -0400 <mailto:scoxb...@shaw.ca> wrote ---- Yes, off topic. The initial poster's code had the loop variable declared as an initialized constant. Not as a true variable. No FPC in hand, I can't test if setting 'assignable typed constants = true' would permit the use of an initialized typed constant or not.
