Liberty BASIC includes compiler reporting. This means that the compiler has a mechanism for reporting interesting things it finds while compiling. For example, if a program has two variable names which are the same except for their capitalization, the reporter will find this. Here is an example:
maxnum = 200
MaxNum = 300
Running a program containing the lines above anywhere in the code causes the compiler reporting pane to appear at the bottom of the Liberty BASIC editor. It reports:
similar variables: maxnum, MaxNum
Another example is variables with similar names. If one variable is called names$, but there is another string variable name$ (no letter 's', a common mistake), the reporter will mention it.
name$ = "Carl"
names$ = "Gundel"
If the lines above are contained in a program, the compiler reports:
string variable warning: name$, names$
Here is a picture of the compiler report pane:
Hiding the Compiler Report Pane
The compiler report pane takes up a significant amount of workspace at the bottom of the Liberty BASIC editor. It can be hidden by right-clicking the mouse within the report pane and choosing "Hide" from the menu.
