QC error message for special characters next to apostrophes

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Most of you noticed if you have a special character like á, é, ő, etc. at the beginning or end of a string qc will not work and displays no error message. It is because it throws an error but in it's own way by pushing a string to the top of the lua stack and calling exit so you can't catch it normally. Here is a method how you can make these messages visible.






Actually we only have to write a few lines.


Open qc.cc and add this function

void print_exception()
	int top = lua_gettop(L);
	if (0 != top && LUA_TSTRING == lua_type(L, top))
		std::cerr << lua_tostring(L, top);


Now go to the main function and add this line to the beginning of it:



So it should look like this:




Now you will see the exceptions like




Good luck guys and hope you like it!  ❤️
