Post RobotC 3.50 bug 2
I found bug #2.
task main()
    short x = 55;
    nxtDisplayTextLine(0, "x0=%d", x);
    nxtDisplayTextLine(1, "x1=%d", ((long)x + 128)*200);
    nxtDisplayTextLine(2, "x2=%d", ((long)x + 128)*200/255);
    nxtDisplayTextLine(3, "x3=%d", (((long)x + 128)*200)/255);

It gave the following output:

Admittedly, I may be at fault here. I believe ANSI-C evaluates operators with the same precedence from left to right. So it is supposed to multiply before divide. But I always tell the students to be safe and add parenthesis to make sure. And I broke my own advice. Regardless, I do think it is an ANSI-C compliance bug, although I can work around it with the extra pair of parenthesis.
