Summary0027069: IGES parser does not recognize comments in Parameters section
DescriptionThe IGES parser is not able to recognize comments which are allowed by the IGES spec, issues false positive warnings, and populates IGES model with invalid data. As a result the IGES file cannot be converted afterwards.

This is a root-cause of issues reported at See also attached a simpler reproducer.

Excerpt from IGES spec 5.3:
" Any desired comment may be added after the record delimiter. Additional comment lines may be used by keeping the same Directory Entry pointer in Columns 65-72 and including the comment lines in the entity’s parameter line count (DE Field 14)."
Steps To Reproduceigesbrep points-with-comments.igs
data c
# must be no warnings/errors
Additional information
and documentation updates
Preliminary analysis shows that the IGES parser does not attempt to associate P section entries to D section entities using references from D to P. Instead it uses a consecutive list of parameters from the P section and just incrementally associates them to D entities. When the parser encounters a multi-line comment or a comment taking a new line in the P section it mistakenly interprets it as a string parameter what breaks this incremental association and thus further parsing.

No fix currently available.
