22 months agooverloading: make qr fallback to "" better
David Mitchell [Mon, 18 Jun 2012 21:40:25 +0000]
overloading: make qr fallback to "" better

With the re_eval jumbo fix, the behaviour of overloaded objects in
runtime patterns, such /^$overloaded/ has changed, such that the stringify
overload ("") no longer avoids the need for 'use re "eval"': for example,

    use overload "" => sub { qr/(??{1})/ }
    my $o = bless [];
    "1" =~ /^$o/;

works in 5.16.0, but dies with "Eval-group not allowed" in blead.

Change this back to the former behaviour, such that if qr and concat
ops aren't overloaded, then use "" overloading, and if the return from
that is a qr object, extract any code blocks from it.

This is achieved by:
* moving the concat/stringify code ahead of the regex block extraction
* making the overloaded stringify call be explicit (rather than
  being invoked implicitly by sv_catsv()),
* looping to re-apply overloading to any object returned by "".
* applying those last two steps in the case of a single arg too

This is a partial fix for

22 months agoIn cflags.SH trim the case statement of file basenames.
Nicholas Clark [Wed, 28 Mar 2012 15:15:15 +0000]
In cflags.SH trim the case statement of file basenames.

Add examples showing how to use cflags.SH to tweak the compiler flags used
for individual object files.

Previously cflags.SH contained a somewhat stale pre-canned list of file
basenames including removed files such as usersub (deleted before 5.000
shipped), and a partial list of 5.000 XS extensions. Whilst it's possible
to generate the correct list in cflags by parsing MANIFEST (and adding a few
fixups), it's still not actually *useful*, as cflags gets overwritten as
soon as config.sh changes. Hence the most end-user useful solution with
minimal maintenance is to eliminate the list entirely, and document how the
user should add to it as necessary.

So refactor to code which doesn't assume anything.

Nicholas Clark [Sun, 3 Jun 2012 14:39:58 +0000]
Teach Porting/cmpVERSION.pl about .pm files extracted from .pm_PL files.

Previously these were overlooked - the generated .pm file corresponding to
an .xs file would be found on disk, but as that file was not in git, the
original $VERSION could not be determined and it would be skipped. Now the
correct master file is checked, and failed if it is not updated.

Without this change, t/porting/cmp_version.t currently fails for a build
using -Dmksymlinks, due to ext/DynaLoader/dl_vms.xs having recent changes.
The test changes directory to the original git checkout, and if that
checkout is clean, there is *no* ext/DynaLoader.pm file there, which meant
that the previous version of pm_file_from_xs() would die because it could
not figure out which Perl file relates to dl_vms.xs

For any changed module, if the old version is undefined or unparseable, treat
it as a SKIP, not an OK. If the old version *was* parseable, but the current
version is not, treat that as a FAIL - moving from a parseable to an
unparseable version is a regression.

Nicholas Clark [Sun, 3 Jun 2012 13:57:20 +0000]
In Porting/cmpVERSION.pl, increment $count in one place, unconditionally.

Previously it was only incremented if it was being used (as part of generating
TAP output). However, this was done as ++$count, necessitating using a printf
statement. By moving the increment to one place we can use print instead,
which is simpler, and avoid the risk of forgetting to increment $count if we
add a new block for different test output.

Revert "B::Deparse: loopexes have list prec"

This reverts commit 6a31dbf44ee919c340a3372c95b28d581979d165.

It turns out to be wrong.  Loopexes do have low precedence, but not
as low as I thought.  Their precedence level is actually their own,
undocumented in perlop:

I am reverting this for now, till we decide what it is that
needs fixing.

22 months agofix paren unwinding with CURLYN, CURLYM
David Mitchell [Sat, 16 Jun 2012 12:56:50 +0000]
fix paren unwinding with CURLYN, CURLYM

Historically, CURLYN and CURLYM didn't restore lastparen ($+) nor
invalidate higher numbered paren slots (reg->offs[n].end = -1)
when backtracking.

Recent commit f6033a9d6c91e0c29d5aa5049361a529b5d7cdc4 fixed the lastparen
issue, but then exposed the offs[n].end issue, which had previously been
masked by the too-high lastparen value causing a previous state (such as a
branch) to conveniently wipe out the offending parens on further

Or to put it another way, each backtracker should be expected to clean up
his own mess, not hope that someone previous to him will do it for him.

Fix this by doing the .end = 1 stuff on CURLYN,M failure as well as
BRANCH/TRIE. For consistency, define a new macro to do it.
