Additional Support Information

To use any supported distribution, the directory containing the command line compiler driver executable must be included in the $PATH environment variable.

In C++, non-standard "direct constructor calls", such as BitSet::BitSet(. . .) in the following example, are not supported:

class BitSet { protected:
     enum BS_op {
                  BS_and = (int) '&',     BS_or = (int) '|',
                };
 
      BitSet(const BitSet& x, const BitSet& y, enum BS_op op);
      friend BitSet operator & (const BitSet& x, const BitSet& y);
             };
BitSet operator & (const BitSet& x, const BitSet& y)
 {
  return BitSet::BitSet(x, y, BitSet::BS_and);
 }

The Freescale HC(S)12 compiler accepts this non-standard construction. It is used in the bitset.h C++ header file shipped with the compiler. Code that uses this header file cannot be analyzed; it is currently not supported.

The Freescale HC(S)12 compiler selects an overloaded function with a non-plain char (signed char, unsigned char) parameter for a function call with a plain char argument. This is not supported. Example:

class istream {
    istream& get(signed char p);
    istream& get(unsigned char p) {
                  return get((char)'a');
                   }
              };

The Freescale HC(S)12 compiler accepts this construction. It is used in the iostream.h C++ header file shipped with the compiler. Code that uses this header file cannot be analyzed; it is currently not supported.

In C++, non-standard constructions that use multiple type specifiers, such as streamsize  int in the following example, are not supported:

class istream {
  typedef int streamsize; 
  istream& read(streamsize int n);
              };

The Freescale HC(S)12 compiler accepts this non-standard construction. It is used in the iostream.h C++ header file shipped with the compiler. Code that uses this header file cannot be analyzed; it is currently not supported.

In C++, implicit conversions from  void* pointer types to other pointer types are not supported. Example:

 class ios {
    int i;
           };
 int vscan(ios* stream = ((void *)0));

The Freescale HC(S)12 compiler accepts this construction. It is used in the stream.h C++ header file shipped with the compiler. Code that uses this header file cannot be analyzed; it is currently not supported.

The built-in long long double type is not supported.


About Support Levels

  • Extended: Support has been validated with extended testing and is approved for use in safety-critical software development.
  • Standard: Support has been validated with standard testing and is approved for use in non-safety critical software development.
