Setting /max On Variable in .sym Leads To Malformed Range In Generated C Code

See original GitHub issue

The following .sym message:

FormatVersion=6.0 // Do not edit this line!


Sig=Signed_Int_Char char
Sig=Enum_Signal Enum1 8


Var=Variable1 unsigned 42,3 /max:1

produces the following struct:

 * Signals in message PDM_HeartBeat.
 * All signal values are as on the CAN bus.
struct CanMsgs_pdm_heart_beat_t {
     * Range: ..1 (..1 -
     * Scale: 1
     * Offset: 0
    uint8_t variable1;

Note that the range is ..1 (..1 -, where I would expect it to be something like * 0..1 (0..1 -)? Looks like this is a case of /max somehow being misinterpreted? What’s really confusing here is that the right value somehow makes it all the way from .sym->internal database->C source, so I suspect this is a bug with C source generation?

Please let me know if you need anything else! Thanks!
