Since f0e67a1 it was possible the freed buffer may be read from when

Father Chrysostomos [Fri, 21 Jan 2011 16:26:50 +0000]
[perl #81750] Perl 5.12: undef-as-hashref bug

The addition of the boolkeys op type in commit 867fa1e2d did not
account for the fact that rv2hv (%{}) can sometimes return undef
(%$undef with strict refs turned off).

When the boolkeys op is created (and the rv2hv becomes its kid), the
rv2hv is flagged with OPf_REF, meaning that it must return a hash, not
the contents.

Perl_softrefxv in pp.c checks for that flag. If it is set, it dies
with ‘Can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference’ for unde-
fined values.

This commit changes it to make an exception if rv2hv->op_next is a
boolkeys op. It also changes pp_boolkeys to account for undef.

Leon Brocard [Sun, 1 May 2011 10:21:52 +0000]
As part of their switch to a multi-arch library layout,
Ubuntu 11.04 (and later, presumably) doesn't keep most libraries
(such as -lm) in /lib or /usr/lib.  So we have to ask gcc to tell us
where to look.  We don't want gcc's own libraries, however, so we
filter those out.

This could be conditional on Ubuntu, but other distributions have
announced their intent follow suit, and this scheme seems to work even
on rather old gcc's.  This unconditionally uses gcc because even if the
user is using another compiler, we still need to find the math library
and friends, and I don't know how other compilers will cope with that
situation.  Still, as an escape hatch, allow Configure command line
overrides to plibpth to bypass this check.

In L<perlunicode/"User-Defined Character Properties">, it says you can
create custom properties by defining subroutines whose names begin with
"In" or "Is". However, perl doesn't actually enforce that naming
restriction, so \p{foo::bar} will call foo::Bar() if it exists.

This commit finally enforces this convention. Note that this broke a

David Mitchell [Sat, 24 Jul 2010 14:41:19 +0000]
[perl #76540] "print CONSTANT," gives double-free

gv_init() has name and len args, but newCONSTSUB() (which it calls)
doesn't have a len arg, so any trailing garbage in name gets used by

In the test case, this means that we end up attaching the const CV
to both the "FOO" and qq{FOO, "\\n";\n} GVs. So it gets freed twice.

David Leadbeater [Sun, 2 Jan 2011 22:33:16 +0000]
[perl #73630] Build separate DTrace for miniperl

As outlined in the RT ticket due to miniperl's dependencies differing to
the final perl binary dtrace -G needs to be called separately for each.

Build tested on Mac OS X 10.6, Solaris 11 and Scientific Linux with
SystemTap from git.

(Solaris is the only system I have access to where DTRACE_O actually gets
defined. Neither the dtrace binary on OS X nor SystemTap's dtrace
compatibility layer accept the -G option.)

Fix Module::Build::Platform::cygwin runtime error

This addresses runtime errors in Module::Build::Platform::cygwin
as reported by Jesse Vincent.  The changes are backported from
the Module::Build repository and the version number has been
slightly incremented to indicate a change from the version on CPAN.

This hopefully addresses test errors in t/actions/installdeps.t, but
the error seems specific to building perl on cygwin and has not been
reported when Module::Build was tested on cygwin by CPAN Testers.

5 years agoMake perlio line buffer VMS record-oriented files on output.
Craig A. Berry [Thu, 18 Nov 2010 04:10:57 +0000]
Make perlio line buffer VMS record-oriented files on output.

When perlio flushes down to the unix layer, it can introduce a
spurious record boundary when writing to a record-oriented file.
Perl may create such files when doing edit-in-place or any other
context where the file format is inherited from a previous
version of the file.

The problem can be eliminated by enabling line buffering on such
files when they are opened.  This was a regression in 5.10.0 since
before that stdio's buffering performed the same function.

N.B.  Lines longer than the size of the perlio buffer will still
result in multiple records -- a larger buffer may be necessary.

For more details and discussion see:


Thanks to Martin Zinser for the problem report.
