12 months agotr/abc/de/: Properly handle longer lhs in in-place calc

tr/abc/de/: Properly handle longer lhs in in-place calc

A tr/// can be done in-place if the target string doesn't contain a
character whose transliterated representation is longer than the
original.  Otherwise, writing the new value would destroy the next
character we need to read.

In general, we can't know if a particular string contains such a
character without keeping a list of the problematic characters, and
scanning it ahead of time for occurrences of those.  Instead, we
determine at compilation time if, for a given transliteration, if there
exists any possible target string that could have an overwriting
problem.  If none exist, we edit in place.  Otherwise, we first make a

Prior to this commit, the code failed to account for the case where the
rhs is shorter than the left, so that any unmatched lhs characters map
to the final rhs one.  The reason the code didn't consider this is that
I didn't think of this possibility when writing it.

This fixes #17654 and #17643

ensure sv bodies are properly aligned

In some cases SV bodies don't include the same members as lower sv type
bodies, in particular, PVMG includes an NV member, while PVCV and
other specialised bodies don't include it, so PVMG can have a larger
alignment boundary.

This can result in a PVCV having a smaller alignment boundary than
PVMG, resulting in potential undefined behaviour if a member that
is common between PVCV and PVMG is accessed on an lesser aligned

perl.h: Add ENV_LOCALE (UN)?LOCK macros

These are eventually intended to lock both the environment and locale
mutexes, but it is too late in the current development cycle to do that.
Instead these are, for now, equivalent to a plain ENV mutex.
(On many modern platforms, the locale mutex is a no-op, so not doing it
is not actually a problem.)

In the meantime, this gives significant better thread safety than what
has been in effect.

POSIX.xs: Never pass NULL to ctermid()

Doing so can cause races.

It is interesting that POSIX:ctermid() takes a parameter, but the
pod doesn't indicate that it does.  Prior to this commit the parameter
was ignored if and only if the platform contains a ctermid_r()
function, and hence on such platforms there was no possibility of a race
here.  The man pages I've seen for ctermid_r() indicate that it differs
from regular ctermid() only in that it will fail if the input is NULL,
and hence a race could occur if it didn't immediately fail.

The situation prior to this commit wa that if you followed the pod on a
non-ctermid_r() platform, and called this without a parameter, it would
call ctermid with NULL, creating a potential race.  This commit changes
so that a race is never possible.

reentr.c: revise handling of several wrapped fcns

Prior to this commit, the code in this function had generic variables,
like p0, and malloc'd them using void *, and then cast to what it
thought were the proper types.  This was failing on solaris g++, because
of the stricter casting rules in C++.

This commit actually simplifies the code, by getting rid of the generic
stuff, and for each group of related functions, declares the appropriate
names for the variables, and mallocs them using the correct type as
expressed in the __DATA__ section of regen/  The casting is
eliminated, except for one case for gethostbyaddr().  Tony Cook pointed
out that the 2001 POSIX standard used a type name for this that may be
shorter than Size_t.  This could be a potential issue, but not on the
platforms tested as of now.

And this fixes #17482, so works where the previous didn't.

reentr.c: Handle getspnam()

This has never worked to increase the buffer size if necessary.
Apparently the default has always been big enough.  But this commit
fixes it to retry if too small.

I don't think there is a way to write tests for this.  getspnam is
called only as a small part of pp_gpwent, and is not part of the API,
and is called only when run as root.

I did test it on my box, with gdb, starting with a buffer size of 1, and
single stepping and observing that it works as I expected.

Karl Williamson [Wed, 11 Mar 2020 18:05:01 +0000 (12:05 -0600)]
reentr.c: Use keywords, not ops

The parameter to this function is a string containing the name of the
wrapped function.  Prior to this commit, it was assumed, without
checking, that PL_op->op_type corresponded to this name.  This
assumption can't be always correct because at least one of the wrapped
functions doesn't have an op, getspnam.  That means it never would have
worked for that function to increase its buffer size.  When I was
examining this some years ago (and didn't follow up until now), ISTR
that there were other cases where the correspondence was wrong, but I
couldn't reproduce that now.

There is no easy conversion from string to OP code, but there is from
string to keyword number.  This commit changes to use that conversion
function, and switches based on the keyword number.  A later commit
fixes getspnam.
