Has the issue below been fixed...

I recently found an issue with SAC on my Mac. I am running a
PowerBook G4 and I tested the scenario out on another colleagues Mac
to confirm. The problem is created when you set two blackboard
variables and try to evaluate them using a mathematical operand
(outlined below):

setbb w1 4
setbb w2 6
evaluate to w3 %w1 * %w2
getbb w3
w3 =
4.00000e0

I tried the same set of commands on a Solaris distribution and it
seemed to work fine. The problem isn't limited to scripts or macros
but will persist when entering it on the command line. Has anyone
else noticed this and is there a fix? However, if you perform the
operation with just on variable and the value it works fine, but the
value has to preceed the variable:

setbb w1 4
evaluate to w3 6 * %w1
getbb w3
w3 =
2.400000e1



thanks,

    The issue below has been fixed.

    For a quick fix which requires compilation, see:
    http://www.iris.washington.edu/pipermail/sac-help/2007-October/
    000304.html

    This issue will also be fixed in the upcoming version (very soon).

    Cheers,
    Brian
