12 years agotries: don't allocate memory at runtime
David Mitchell [Mon, 3 May 2010 12:57:58 +0000 (13:57 +0100)]
tries: don't allocate memory at runtime

This is an indirect fix for
    [perl #74484] Regex causing exponential runtime+mem usage

The trie runtime code was doing more SAVETMPS than FREETMPS and was thus
growing a large tmps stack on heavy backtracking. Rather than fixing this
directly, I rewrote part of the trie code so that it no longer needs to
allocate memory in S_regmatch (it still does in find_byclass()).

The basic issue is that multiple branches in the trie may trigger an
accept state; for example:

    "abcd" =~ /xyz/abcd.*X|ab.*Y|/

here, words (branches) 2 and 3 are accept states. The original approach
was, at run time, to create a list of accepted word numbers and the
character positions of the end of each of those words. Then run the rest
of the pattern for each word in the list in turn (in word index order).
This requires memory for the list to be allocated and freed.

The new approach involves creating extra info at compile time; in
particular, for each word, a pointer to the previous accepted word (if
any) in the state tree. For example for the above pattern, part of the
state tree may be

      q    b    c    d
    1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4 -> 5
            (#3)       (#2)

(e.g. at state 1, if the next char is 'a', we transition to state 2).
Here, state 3 is an accept state with word #3, and 5 is an accept state
with word #2. So we build a table indexed by word number, which has
wordinfo[2] = 3, wordinfo[3] = 0, thus building the word chain 2->3->0.

At run time we run the trie to completion, and remember the word
associated with the longest accept state (word #2 above). Then by following
back the chain of .prev fields, we can produce a list of all accepting
words. We then iteratively find the smallest-numbered (ie LH-most) word in
the chain, and run with it. On failure and backtrack, we find the
next-smallest and so on.

Since we are no longer recording the end-position of each word in the
string, we have to recalculate this for each backtrack. We initially
record the end-position of the shortest accepting word, and given that we
know the length of each word, we can calculate the new position each time
as an offset from that first word. Depending on unicode and folding, that
calculation can be cheap or expensive.

This algorithm is optimised for the typical case where there are a small
number (<= 2) accepting states.

This patch creates a new compile-time array, trie->wordinfo[], indexed by
word number, which contains relevant info about each word. This also
supersedes the old trie->newword[] array, whose function of recording
"overspills" of multiple words per accept state, is now handled as part of
the wordinfo[].prev chain.

Permit array assignment to steal temps and copy shared hash key scalars.

Scalar assignment to array elements already does this. (As does all other
scalar assignment, and list assignment to hashes.) Prior to 4c8f17b905f2
(change 7867) list assignment to arrays did steal temps.

Better fix for RT #2140 (list assignment with duplicated temporaries)

4c8f17b905f2 (change 7867) took the approach of a special case in sv_setsv()
when PL_op indicated that the current OP was OP_AASSIGN. The problem is in one
part of pp_aassign, where it was using sv_mortalcopy() on values that were
correctly marked as temporaries, but also still needed later. Hence a more
targetted solution is to avoid that call, and to instead use API calls that
will not steal temporaries.
