#1194: Cactus does not check range of integer parameters anymore
 Reporter:  rhaas  |        Type:  defect
   Status:  new    |    Priority:  major 
Milestone:         |   Component:  Cactus
  Version:         |    Keywords:        
 since adding the possibility to use formula on the rhs of parameter value
 assignments in parfiles (rev r4797 of the flesh) a bug is present that
 prevents Cactus from rejecting CCTK_INT parameter values that are not in
 the allowed range. Instead the default value is used. Christian Ott
 encountered this today. The bug is caused by not re-initializing retval
 before entering a loop in src/main/ParameterSetInterger (compare

 The attached patch fixes this and the second patch (to Exact) fixes a typo
 in the test parameter files that was not caught because of this bug (test
 results do not change).

 When parameters within the allowed range were supplied the code produced
 the right parameter values, but incorrect parameters would have silently
 appeared to the code as the default value.

 I would like to also apply this to the release.
