Issue C62101

Can't compile without DEBUG
Submitted by: Anson Turner     Appeared in: Compiler 6.21     Fixed in: Compiler 6.30

There is an error in the Inform 6.21 compiler's veneer code which causes compilation to abort with errors if debugging is not on. (Debugging is always on unless Strict mode is disabled with the ~S compiler switch.)


To fix this, add the following to the game file after Including "Parser":

  #ifndef DEBUG;
  Global debug_flag;

Fix permanently by a patch to veneer.c.
