Can't compile old idl files using JacORB, causes loop

Can't compile old idl files using JacORB, causes loop


I'm trying to compile some old idl files from 2007 that were developed for a visibroker corba integration using jacorb. The problem is that I get a strange loop when trying to compile.

I'm running this command
"c:\jacorb-2.1\bin\idl.bat" -W 4 -Ic:\jacorb-2.1\idl\omg -i2jpackage basicnet:new.package.name.basicnet BasicNet.idl
I tried using a newer jacorb (3.7) but then I got some other errors since theese idl files are from 2007 and apparently doesn't conform to a TF standard.

..everything seems to go fine in the beginnin..

... and so on

Do you have any idea why I get this loop?

I've attached a complete outputfile.
