Patch for LONG_MAX & co.

    __DIE__ (with patch)

sv_2pv() might call croak() (which is not prepared to handle that
when it calls sv_2pv(), itself).  Likewise for warn() (but under
slightly more esoteric circumstances--mg_get() in sv_2pv() might
trigger a call to warn()).

PERL_BADLANG is examined by default before issuing a warning during
    internationalization.

lval substr() coredumps with refs (with patch)

substr() in lvalue context interacts in buggy fashion with SVs that
are !SvOK.  This manifests itself with lexicals that have a REFCNT of
1, since these are merely "cleared in place" by setting SvOK_off.

substr() coredumps with a target that is a ref, when it is used in
an lvalue context.

Handling of fake typeglobs (scalars that are really globs
in disguise) is seriously busted since 5.002 (it wasn't
so in 5.001n).

The problem is that mg_get() on a glob calls gv_efullname()
which might coerce its first arg to a string.

Perl 5 Porters [Wed, 28 Aug 1996 02:51:28 +0000]
Re: truncate with file name does not work (with patch)

The prototype for truncate was changed so that perl won't die
with C<use strict;> when the first arg is a bareword (filehandle).
I think it was Tom (as in "tchrist") who brought this up.

Here's a patch that undoes the damage, makes it work with
C<use strict;>, and adds to the testsuite.

The "not implemented" branch is missing a "\n".

18 years agoTrack SVs for destruction when -DPURIFY
Chip Salzenberg [Mon, 2 Sep 1996 00:08:15 +0000]
Track SVs for destruction when -DPURIFY

This patch removes a few obvious redundancies in the source.

This patch changes neither behavior nor performance.  However, it does
reduce code size and improve maintainability by combining some common
code in gv_fullname() and gv_efullname().

When checking for memory leaks, I compiled Perl with "-DPURIFY".
Although that flag improves the leak checking, it also breaks
destruction of global objects, because SVs aren't kept in captive
arenas any more.

This patch rectifies the problem by providing an alternative
method for keeping track of SVs when Perl is compiled for Purify.
It has no effect on normal operation.

Add comment about assert(len >=0) when len is unsigned anyway.

perl 5.003_04: perlio.c

Removes an incorrect prototype for setlinebuf from
perlio.c because it conflicts with the correct declaration in
MachTen's stdio.h (and possibly other stdio's as well).

Secondly, the code in perlio.c is not handling the (!PERLIO_IS_STDIO &
HAS_F[GS]ETPOS) case.  The patch fixes this omission (in a rather lumpen
manner).  I don't think this should affect platforms which try to hack a
different path through the #ifdef forest, but this assertion would benefit
from testing...

Handling of fake typeglobs (scalars that are really globs
in disguise) is seriously busted since 5.002 (it wasn't
so in 5.001n).
The problem is that mg_get() on a glob calls gv_efullname()
which might coerce its first arg to a string.

Sub-critical patch to conceivably fix some %SIG problems. (Shared hash key
weren't being properly detected by some of the sig magic, but as shared
hash keys wouldn't normally be used in %SIG it's unlikely this is a
significant problem.)

Perl 5 Porters [Sun, 1 Sep 1996 22:35:00 +0000]
Patch for LONG_MAX & co.

Sorry about adding yet another #ifdef forest, but hopefully this
should resolve the *_MAX issues permanently. It adds to the
previously defined PERL_LONG_MAX, PERL_LONG_MIN, and PERL_ULONG_MAX
symbols the complete set of
/PERL_U?(CHAR|SHORT|INT|LONG)_(MAX|MIN)/, and installs aliases to
those from /(I|U)(8|16|32|V)_(MAX|MIN)/ so that for any standard
Perl typedef, like I32 or UV, you can reference I32_MAX or UV_MIN,
and get appropriate figures. All references to LONG_(MIN|MAX) are
changed appropriately.

The .c changes have the side effect of making cast_uv properly use quad
limits if quads are in use, but longs aren't 64 bit. Hopefully this all
works, but I don't have any handy Crays to try it out on.

Add notes on perl's internal types, specifically Quad_t and IV.
