Form Command

I recently switched to a MacBook Pro and was trying to compile root and run my root based analysis software.

root 5.10 compiles but returns an error when I use a Form command in my code. Does the error message really mean I can’t run Form commands on this platform or could have something gone wrong with the build.

Thank you!

See example below:

  •                                     *
  •    W E L C O M E  to  R O O T       *
  •                                     *
  • Version 5.10/00 1 March 2006 *
  •                                     *

FreeType Engine v2.1.9 used to render TrueType fonts.
Compiled on 6 April 2006 for macosx with thread support.

CINT/ROOT C/C++ Interpreter version 5.16.8, February 9, 2006
Type ? for help. Commands must be C++ statements.
Enclose multiple statements between { }.
root [0] TString s(Form(“x%d”, 5))
Limitation: Variable argument is not supported for this platform (tmpfile):1:
*** Interpreter error recovered ***
root [1]

This works correctly with 5.11/02 or CVS head.
I cannot test with 5.10
