Au3Check gives wrong error with Const ByRef params

Reported by: Valik Owned by: Valik
Milestone: Component: Other
Version: Severity: None

Description (last modified by Valik)

The following code:


Func CallNonConst()
	Local $a = 32

Func CallConst()
	Local Const $a = 32

Func TakesConstByRef(Const ByRef $c)
	ConsoleWrite($c & @CRLF)

produces this error:

New AutoIt v3 Script.au3(15,37) : ERROR: TakesConstByRef() previously called with expression on Const ByRef param(s).
Func TakesConstByRef(Const ByRef $c)
New AutoIt v3 Script.au3(6,20) : REF: first call to TakesConstByRef().
New AutoIt v3 Script.au3 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

The error is wrong. The code is perfectly valid. The problem is using a non-const and a const in the same script with the same function. It seems Au3Check is trying to infer something incorrectly. If you modify both examples to be identical (Either add Const to the Local it's missing from or remove it from the one where it's present) then there is no error. All Au3Check needs to worry about is making sure a variable is being passed to the ByRef statement, it doesn't need to concern itself if the variable is Const or not.
