Assertion failed: (isGV_with_GP(_gvname_hek)), function Perl_leave_scope, file scope.c, line 1035.
Abort trap: 6

pp_undef undefines a subroutine via cv_undef, which wipes out the
name, and then restores the name again afterwards.

For subs with GVs, it would call CvGV_set afterwards with the same gv.
But cv_undef could have freed the GV, if the CV held the only refer-
ence count.

I caused this for lexical subs a few commits ago in ae77754ae (because
CvGV will always return non-null; in fact the CvNAME_HEK code in
pp_undef is no longer exercised, but I will address that soon).

For anonymous subs it is older:

This commit fixes the problem by fiddling with reference counts.  But
this is only a temporary fix.  I think I plan to stop cv_undef from

Father Chrysostomos [Mon, 15 Sep 2014 13:20:16 +0000]
[Merge] CVs without GVs

Subroutines in packages no longer need typeglobs to live in.  Concep-
tually the typeglobs still exist, and will be reified as necessary.

(This was already the case with constant subs, which could be stored
in the stash as refs to constants, but now the stash can have sub
refs, too.)

Currently this optimisation is undone if a sub is exported or used as
a method.  Also, it does not apply to XSUBs.

Here is the full list of notable changes:


• CvGV now reifies the GV if necessary.
• Lexical subs now have notional GVs, which are likewise rei-
  fied by CvGV.
• The new CVf_LEXICAL flag indicates that the package name should be
  dropped in error messages.


• New cv_name function
• New cv_set_call_checker_flags function

• New B::safename function

op.c:ck_subr: reify GVs based on call checker

Instead of faking up a GV to pass to the call checker if we have a
lexical sub, just get the GV from CvGV (since that will reify the GV,
even for lexical subs), unless the call checker has not specifically
requested GVs.

For now, we assume the default call checker cannot handle non-GV sub
names, as indeed it cannot.  An imminent commit will rectify that.

The code in scope.c was getting the name hek from the proto CV (stowed
in magic on the pad name) if the CV in the pad had lost it.  Now, the
proto CV can lose it at compile time via CvGV, so that does not work
anymore.  Instead, just get it from the GV.

Sub calls still reify them though, because of the way ck_subr cur-
rently works.

Constant proxies are still upgraded to full GVs for now, just to mini-
mise the churn per patch.

This makes it possible for OP_GVs to point to things other than GVs,
and these things are stored in the pad under threads.  Hence, pad_tidy
could turn on PADTMP, and then IS_PADGV becomes true when it is
upgraded to a glob, so refgen will fail assertions.  There is actually
no need to turn on PADTMP in pad_tidy, since it will already be on for
op targets.  (We need to get rid of IS_PADGV one of these days.  It

Recent changes have made constant declarations like ‘sub foo(){}’
put just a constant reference in the stash if possible, the way con-
stant.pm does.  When this gets upgraded to a typeglob, the CV is rei-
fied via newCONSTSUB, so it gets a CvSTASH pointer.

Avoid creating GVs when subs are declared

This patch changes ‘sub foo {...}’ declarations to store subroutine
references in the stash, to save memory.

Typeglobs still notionally exist.  Accessing CvGV(cv) will reify them.
Hence, currently the savings are lost when a sub call is compiled.

$ ./miniperl -e 'sub foo{} BEGIN { warn $::{foo} } foo(); BEGIN { warn $::{foo} }'
CODE(0x7f8ef082ad98) at -e line 1.
*main::foo at -e line 1.

This optimisation is skipped if the subroutine declaration contains a
package separator.

Concerning the changes in caller.t, this code:

    sub foo { print +(caller(0))[3],"\n" }
    my $fooref = delete $::{foo};

07b8c804e8) to produce ‘(unknown)’ instead.  Then in 5.13.3 it was
changed (by 803f274) to produce ‘main::__ANON__’ instead.  So the

acceptable that it has now changed to ‘main::foo’.

30 hours agoRemove bogus gv-handling code from toke.c
Father Chrysostomos [Sun, 7 Sep 2014 05:51:15 +0000]
Remove bogus gv-handling code from toke.c

This code was added by 211a4342c, which was actually restoring some
code that f74617600 removed.

Its purpose was to expand a proxy to a real GV after we found out that
we really are going to compile a sub call op.

This code is actually unreachable at present (sub call lookup via
rv2cv ops expands stub declarations, but not references to constants;
references to constants are not compiled to sub calls), which is a
good thing, because (1) it does not take UTF8 names into account and
(2) it does not work with rv2cv hooks or our subs, because it assumes
that the value of PL_tokenbuf is normative and can be used to
reify a glob.

Craig A. Berry [Sat, 13 Sep 2014 22:24:20 +0000]
Disable isfinite on VMS.

While the macro exists (in fp.h, not math.h) and it does work on
ordinary doubles, it does not work on long doubles, which is the
only use of it so far in the Perl core.  In Perl_sv_vcatpvfn_flags,
isfinite is testing a long double even when not configured with
long doubles (assuming long doubles are at least available).

So the better part of valor is to say we don't have it and use the
fallback.  Gets t/op/infnan.t #13 passing.
