#754 new defect

test macro capability at startup

The macro capability of ARB is easily broken by installing an incompatible ARB-version. ARB does not complain, recording work but playback fails. Errors are only shown in console.

One common cause is

  • compile arb on a system with perl 5.14 (e.g.)
  • execute it on a system with perl 5.20 ⇒ macros won't run

ARB should test whether macros work (at startup) and pop-up an error message.
