Father Chrysostomos [Mon, 20 Jul 2015 18:23:49 +0000]
[perl #125541] Fix crash with %::=(); J->${\"::"}

gv_stashpvn does not expect gv_fetchpv to return something that is
not a GV.  If someone has blown away the stash with %::=(), then the
$::{"main::"} entry no longer exists, but gv_fetchpv expects it to be
there.  This patch just makes this case fail somewhat gracefully
instead of crashing:

$  ./miniperl -e '%::=(); J->${\"::"}'
Can't locate object method "" via package "" (perhaps you forgot to load ""?) at -e line 1.

If someone does %::=(), nothing more reasonable should be expected.
At least it does not crash now.

James E Keenan [Wed, 8 Jul 2015 00:14:58 +0000]
Module::CoreList->find_version(): refactor for testability.

In order to address weaknesses in the documentation of find_version() in
CoreList.pod, we first had to address its lack of unit tests.  It was
previously only exercised inside the 'corelist' utility.  Refactored
function a bit to expose all its branches for testing.  Then added tests
for the function with and without arguments.  Corrected documentation
for find_version() in CoreList.pod.

Documentation subsequently clarified per feedback from Steve Parker.

For: RT # 125563 (1st of 2 problems cited in that ticket).

cope with versions that do not match x.yyyzzz in corelist

Without this, we might be asked about 5.020 but be unable to climb
the delta tree because there is no delta entry for 5.020, only for

This is a poor solution for now, because (for example) some versions
are not stored in x.yyyzzz format.  One is eveni n x.yyyzz!  We
should store things in a normalized format, and normalize arguments
on input.

For now, this will do.

David Mitchell [Wed, 19 Aug 2015 07:24:11 +0000]
RT #124156: death during unwinding causes crash

v5.19.3-139-g2537512 changed POPSUB and POPFORMAT so that they also
unwind the relevant portion of the scope stack. This (sensible) change
means that during exception handling, contexts and savestack frames are
popped in lock-step, rather than all the contexts being popped followed by
all the savestack contents.

However, LEAVE_SCOPE() is now called by POPSUB/FORMAT, which can trigger
destructors, tied method calls etc, which themselves may croak. The new
unwinding will see the old sub context still on the context stack and call
POPSUB on it again, leading to double frees etc.

At this late stage in code freeze, the least invasive change is to
use an unused bit in cx->blk_u16 to indicate that POPSUB has already
been called on this context frame.

Sometime later, this whole area of code really needs a thorough overhaul.
The main issue is that if cxstack_ix-- is done too early, then calling
destructors etc can overwrite the current context frame while we're still
using using it; if cxstack_ix-- is done too late, then that stack frame
can end up getting unwound twice.

Father Chrysostomos [Mon, 17 Aug 2015 07:13:52 +0000]
[perl #123711] Fix crash with 0-5x-l{0}

perl-5.8.0-117-g6f33ba7, which added the XTERMORDORDOR hack, did not
change the leftbracket code to treat XTERMORDORDOR the same way as
XTERM, so -l {0} and getc {0} (among other ops) were treating {...} as
a block, rather than an anonymous hash.  This was not, however, being
turned into a real block with enter/leave ops to protect the stack,
so the nextstate op was corrupting the stack and possibly freeing mor-
tals in use.

This commit makes the leftbracket code check for XTERMORDORDOR and
treat it like XTERM, so that -l {0} once more creates an anonymous
hash.  There is really no way to get to that hash, though, so all I
can test for is the crash.

2 weeks agosimpify and speed up /.*.../ handling
David Mitchell [Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:34:59 +0000]
simpify and speed up /.*.../ handling

See RT ##123743.

A pattern that starts /.*/ has a fake MBOL or SBOL flag added, along

The idea is that, with /.*.../s, if the NFA don't match when started at
pos 0, then it's not going to match if started at any other position
either; while /.*.../ won't match at any other start position up until
the next \n.

However, the branch in regexec() that implemented this was a bit a mess
(like much in the perl core, it had gradually accreted), and caused
intuit-enabled /.*.../ and /.*...patterns to go quadratic.

The branch looked roughly like:

    if (anchored) {
        if (regtry(s)) goto success;
        if (can_intuit) {
            while (s < end) {
                s = intuit(s+1);
                if (!s) goto fail;
                if (regtry(s)) goto success;
        else {
            while (s < end) {
                s = skip_to_next_newline(s);
                if (regtry(s)) goto success;

The problem is that in the presence of a .* at the start of the pattern,
intuit() will always return either NULL on failure, or the start position,
rather than any later position. So the can_intuit branch above calls
regtry() on every character position.

This commit fixes this by changing the structure of the code to be like
this, where it only tries things on newline boundaries:

    if (anchored) {
        if (regtry(s)) goto success;
        while (1) {
            s = skip_to_next_newline(s);
            if (can_intuit) {
                s = intuit(s+1);
                if (!s) goto fail;
            if (regtry(s)) goto success;

This makes the code a lot simpler, and mostly avoids quadratic behaviour
(you can still get it with a string consisting mainly of newlines).

'_h2ph_pre.ph'.  This should find and exercise generated t/_h2ph_pre.ph
