Father Chrysostomos [Fri, 13 Sep 2013 09:10:21 +0000 (02:10 -0700)]
op.c:leave_scope: use mg_free before sv_force_normal

This is part of ticket #119295.

Commit 7fa949d (5.19.3) allowed copy-on-write with compile-time con-
stants.  That caused this to fail:

use Variable::OnDestruct:
 my $h = "foo";
 on_destruct $h, sub { warn defined $_[0] ? $_[0] : "undef" };
 $x++; # prev statement must not be last in the block

It prints undef instead of foo.

It turns out this is much older:

use Variable::OnDestruct;
 my $h = __PACKAGE__;
 on_destruct $h, sub { warn defined $_[0] ? $_[0] : "undef" };
 $x++; # prev statement must not be last in the block

This one prints undef starting with 5.17.3 (a6d7a4ac1).

But even before that, this prints undef:

use Variable::OnDestruct;
 my $h = \1;
 on_destruct $h, sub { warn defined $_[0] ? $_[0] : "undef" };
 $x++; # prev statement must not be last in the block

In all these cases, the scalar is getting undefined before free magic
triggers (Variable::OnDestruct uses free magic).

Usually when a scalar is freed, the magic is triggered before anything
else.  When a lexical scalar is ‘freed’ on scope exit (cleared for
reuse on scope entry), the order is different.  References, globs and
copy-on-write scalars become undefined (via sv_force_normal) before
magic is triggered.

There is no reason for the order to be different here, and it causes
unpredictable behaviour (you never know when you will or will not have
a cow).  So change the order in scope exit to match regular freeing.

8 years agoFewer false positives for %hash{$scalar} warning
Father Chrysostomos [Thu, 12 Sep 2013 21:30:41 +0000 (14:30 -0700)]
Fewer false positives for %hash{$scalar} warning

Instead of warning in the lexer, flag the op and then warn in op.c,
when the op tree is available, so we don’t end up warning for actual
lists or for sub calls.

Also, only warn in scalar context, as in list context $hash{$scalar}
and %hash{$scalar} do different things.

In op.c we no longer have easy access to the source code, so recon-
struct the hash/array access based on the op tree.  This means
%hash{foo} becomes %hash{"foo"}.  We only reconstruct constant keys,
so %hash{++$x} becomes %hash{...}.  This also corrects erroneous
dumps, like %hash{"} for %hash{"}"}.

Instead of triggering the warning solely based on the op tree, we
still keep the heuristic in toke.c, so that common workarounds for
that warning (e.g., {q<key>} and {("key")}) continue to work.

The heuristic in toke.c is tweaked to avoid warning for qw().

In a future commit I plan to extend this to the existing @array[0] and
@hash{key} warnings, to avoid false positives.

regcomp.c: Use Perl_form() instead of buggy sprintf

Commit 4cabb89a737018190d4e09360a6615e19160709f introduced tests
which include trying to look up a Unicode property whose name
is an upper Latin-range character.  This caused errors and a segfault
on some but not all patforms.  It also turns out that the error is in
some locales but not others.

The problem was there all along, and this commit merely exposed it; and
the bug is in the libc sprintf() for those platforms, which was used
to create the look-up property name.  This version of sprintf() turns
out to be locale-sensitive, and in a UTF-8 locale, it refuses to format
a %s that isn't valid UTF-8.  My guess is that sprintf and printf share
implementation, and such sensitivity may be warranted for printf, but
certainly not for sprintf.  It is undocumented behavior.  And it is
incorrect UTF-8 handling even if one were to output UTF-8 only.  The
reason for that is any malformed text should be turned into the
REPLACEMENT CHARACTER, not just skipped over.  This is a potential
security hole in in this sprintf() version.

The solution I ended up for Perl is to replace the sprintf() with
Perl_form().  I also looked at my_strlcpy() and friends.  Neither one is
as convenient as the buggy sprintf.  Feel free to replace this with
something better.

8 years agoUse separate macros for byte vs uv Unicode

Use separate macros for byte vs uv Unicode

its calls into two classes: those where the input is a byte; and those
where it can be any unsigned integer.  The byte implementation avoids a
