Jarkko Hietaniemi [Thu, 24 Apr 2014 22:16:30 +0000]
perlfunc: Should chdir("/") immed after chroot

Inspired by Coverity perl5 CID 28931: Insecure chroot: (CHROOT)

The Perl chroot() is a thin wrapper around the system call, so the
chdir("/") should not go there.  But adding a note about the chdir()
being a good idea to perlfunc/chroot.

David Mitchell [Tue, 13 May 2014 13:18:06 +0000]
[perl #121854] use re 'taint' regression

Commit v5.19.8-533-g63baef5 changed the handling of locale-dependent
regexes so that the pattern was considered tainted at compile-time, rather
than determining it each time at run-time whenever it executed a
locale-dependent node. Unfortunately due to the conflating of two flags,
RXf_TAINTED and RXf_TAINTED_SEEN, it had the side effect of permanently
marking a pattern as tainted once it had had a single tainted result.


    use re qw(taint);
    use Scalar::Util qw(tainted);
    for ($^X, "abc") {
        /(.*)/ or die;
        print "not " unless tainted("$1"); print "tainted\n";

which from 5.19.9 onwards output:


but with this commit (and with 5.19.8 and earlier), it now outputs:

    not tainted

The RXf_TAINTED flag indicates that the pattern itself is tainted, e.g.

    $r = qr/$tainted_value/

while the RXf_TAINTED_SEEN flag means that the results of the last match
are tainted, e.g.

    use re 'tainted';
    $tainted =~ /(.*)/;
    # $1 is tainted

Pre 63baef5, the code used to look like:

    at run-time:

        turn off RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;
        while (nodes to execute) {
            switch(node) {
                BOUNDL: /* and other locale-specific ops */
                    turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;
        if (tainted || RXf_TAINTED)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;

63baef5 changed it to:

    at compile-time:

        if (pattern has locale ops)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;

    at run-time:

        while (nodes to execute) {
        if (tainted || RXf_TAINTED)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;

This commit changes it to:

    at compile-time;

        if (pattern has locale ops)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED;

    at run-time:

        turn off RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;
        while (nodes to execute) {

scan_str() only sets PL_multi_end on success, but the qw, q amd '' cases
were calling the COPLINE_SET_FROM_MULTI_END; macro before reporting
failure, overwriting the line used for reporting errors.

For the simplest case, as in the ticket and the tests, PL_multi_end is
zero, so the error is reported without a line number.

Revert "[perl #79908] Stop sub inlining from breaking closures"

This reverts commit 137da2b05b4b7628115049f343163bdaf2c30dbb. See the
"How about having a recommended way to add constant subs dynamically?"
thread on perl5-porters, specifically while it sucks that we have this
bug, it's been documented to work this way since 5.003 in "Constant
Functions" in perlsub:

    If the result after optimization and constant folding is either a
    constant or a lexically-scoped scalar which has no other references,
    then it will be used in place of function calls made without C<&>

    -- http://perldoc.perl.org/perlsub.html#Constant-Functions

Since we've had this documented bug for a long time we should introduce
this fix in a deprecation cycle rather than silently slowing down code
that assumes it's going to be optimized by constant folding.

      Files:  pod/perlsub.pod

We've documented that "BEGIN { my $x = 1; *X = sub () { $x } }" creates
an inlined subroutine, we just weren't doing so very explicitly. Patch
the documentation so that we now have explicit examples for the behavior
mentioned in the first paragraph of the section.

This also adds an explicit mention of the behavior reported as a bug in
[RT #79908], shows the user that you can just use B::Deparse rather than
relying on a warning to see the effects of inlining, and replaces a
contrived way to avoid inlining with just adding a "return".

While writing these docs I found a bug in the warning behavior mentioned
here, which I filed as [RT #121841]

Yves Orton [Sun, 11 May 2014 10:37:33 +0000]
Implement "max waste" thresholds to avoid problems with COW and deliberately overallocated pvs

COW does not play nicely with "preallocate" algorithms.

More specifically code like sv_gets() wants to preallocate a large
buffer into $_ for performance reasons.

Prior to COW this was just fine. When someone assigned $_ to a
less volatile variable only the used portion of the buffer was copied,
and the extended buffer would be reused by sv_gets() and all was well.

With COW however this process is foiled. The preallocated buffer
get shared, and then when $_ is updated the buffer is dropped from $_,
leaving the other SV holding ownership of the overallocated buffer,
and causing sv_gets() to allocate a new buffer entirely. This process
would then repeat consuming time and lots of memory.

This patch introduces a "wastage" check to COW. When decided if we
should COW a string we look at the ratio and difference of SvCUR(sv)
and SvLEN(sv), which represent the "actual string length" and the
"allocated string length". When the difference exceeds a hard threshold,
or when the ration exceeds a designated factor then we do not COW.

This means that strings with large overallocations are not COWed.
Exactly how this works out in practice, where SvGROW() *always*
overallocates, is an open question.

See: https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=121796

This patch also slightly tweaks SvGROW() not to do roundup on the first
allocation of the pv. Odds are good that the initial request realy does
want exactly what they expected. (SvGROW contrary to what the name
suggests is used for bother *extended* the size of a pv, and
initializing it the first time.)

Fix Encode 2.60 with g++

The recently added Encode 2.60 won't compile with g++, due to assigning
a const char * const pointer to a char* struct field.

The intent of the code itself is a bit unclear, but it appears to be
to set SvPVX as a read-only alias of a const string, using the SvLEN()=0
trick to avoid it being freed.

Fix the g++ builds by casting away the constness, and add some asserts and
comments to make it less unclear what's going on.

PATCH: [perl #121778]:BBC KAMIPO/autobox-String-Inflector

When I wrote commit 645de4ceb9a7cbcff21ef7df3a5f5eb36259571e,
and its predecessor commit, I wrongly thought that this code used a
count of bytes rather than characters.  I no longer remember why.
My previous experience was that a lot of code in the regex system talked
about characters in the documentation, when in fact bytes were what was
really meant.  The comments had never been properly updated to account
for UTF-8

But this code in fact is supposed to use a character count, and this
commit changes it to do so.
